Communication was spot on throughout, the receptionists were lovely to speak with and were very knowledgeable on what size skip I needed and logistics.I used a 3 yard domestic skip for a garden project and it was perfectly fit for purpose. Arrived and was taken away first thing on both specified days - driver was lovely too.Will definitely use again, thank you!

Have used Ward Bros on a number of occasions over the last year. They have always been friendly, professional and competitively priced. The skip is placed on the spot I want, is always on time and taken away when arranged.I'll not be using anyone else and will highly recommend them to anyone.
Dean Hall
Booked a skip a week in advance of day needed, lady I spoke to was very helpful and offered a very competitive price. On day skip was required it arrived on time with a very friendly and knowledgeable driver. Called when skip was ready for collection and it was picked up same day. This is not the first time we have used ward bros, won’t be last and highly recommend them.

John Graham
First time I’ve used this company for skip hire. Are they good? NO, they’re excellent!! Cost was comparable with others offering this service but customer care was outstanding. Skip arrived 10 minutes into the two hour window I was given and collection was equally good. Drivers were pleasant and efficient taking only minutes to leave/pickup the skip. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend
