Does Size Really Matter?

It’s a question that has been debated for centuries and FINALLY the team at Junk It HQ have found the answer! No not to THAT question but the question of whether to consider Skip Hire or not!

When hiring a skip there are a number of things to consider…

Do you have enough junk to justify the cost?

Will you be able to find space for the skip so that it doesn’t cause obstructions to neighbours, traffic or local business?

You will need to pay for a skip hire or parking bay suspension license, which takes time, extra cost, plus not all your junk may be able to go into the skip: Gas bottles, electrical equipment (WEEE), Tyres, TVs & computer screens, Fridges and freezers, Batteries, Plasterboard, Fluorescent tubes etc.

In addition you have to spend time loading your junk yourself!

At Junk it we offer you the perfect eco friendly solution! Well what did you expect from Scotland’s largest licensed man and van rubbish Collection Company! Our custom designed trucks are perfect for getting to those remote or difficult places where a skip is not feasible. Our trained teams will do all the heavy lifting and loading- plus we collect, reuse and recycle all those items which aren’t allowed in skips!

But how have we solved the issue of size we hear you cry?! Our tucks are 12 cubic yards- equivalent to two domestic skips! We know, impressive.

As heard on Clyde 1 and Forth 1


Jordan and Tony did a fantastic job clearing my late mother's garage, they even broke down and removed some old wooden shelving that my grandfather put up in the 90s! Very professional service, courteous and helpful. I've used this service three times now, and would highly recommend it to anyone 👍

Used Junk It Edinburgh for removal of a greenhouse. Very impressed by the efficient and pleasant workforce who turned up early and completed the job in record time and left everything near and tidy. Would definitely recommend this company.

Tony and Jordan from Junk It were invaluable during a recent house and garage clearance. What would have taken me weeks took them a couple of hours! They were professional, polite, and down-to-earth hard workers. I would highly recommend Junk It to anyone.
