1st ever ordering and paying for a skip online. Easy website to navigate simple and efficient. Had to check the day after just to be sure, spoke to Sarah who made me feel like I was speaking to a friend. Skip arrived and positioned by Eliot to an excellent standard, he to was polite, laid back, extremely competent and again ever so friendly (not your fake American type friendly) You can even order online for the same day if slots available. Thank you DD paving for the recommendation. Lostock skips far surpass other skip companies. You should all be very chuffed and proud of yourselves 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍read more

I hired an 8 yard skip. Was highly surprised with how cheap the skip was. The woman I spoke to on the phone was very polite and informative. The skip was delivered within the time slot I was given, the driver was also very polite. I rang to arrange collection and the skip was collected with no issues. Highly recommend Lostock Skip Hire and will be using them again in the near future.read more

I needed three skips over a couple of months to help with a house renovation. Felt a bit daunted by the number of skip companies out there, however I plumped for Lostock Skips. Glad I did! Faultless service, timely delivery of skips, friendly drivers and very competitive prices. The lady who booked my skips was always efficient. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.read more

I have to say that I was delighted with the service I received from Lostock Skip Hire, from the very first call to the condition of the skip, the delivery and placing, it seemed nothing was too much trouble to anyone in the business. Customer service is excellent, the driver was very understanding and accommodating when required to unload in a tight space, a very welcome change from the usual, how should I say, less than helpful service on can often get from a skip hire company.Special thanks to Lucy for helping me with my late change of mind, she couldn’t have done more to make sure everything was provided as required.Give them a try, you will not regret it Markread more
