Large bins can contain upwards of 80 bin bags. These are a great option for major projects with large quantities of rubbish.

You might need the skip there while you do the cleanup work. You'll be able to transfer any rubbish from your garden or renovation directly to the skip! This makes it a lot easier to manage the waste. It's also a lot cleaner than letting the rubbish pile up on your lawn.

Ray was absolutely immense, not only completing the job to a perfectly efficient standard but he focussed on ensuring that i as the client was comfortable with everything he did whilst walking me through the entire process. He was extremely thorough and totally outstanding. The 5 stars I have given him does not do justice to how excellent he was. Complete gentleman and would hire him again in a heartbeat.

Ivan and his team assembled and secure Pax wardrobes for our walk-in wardrobe. It was a challenging task to build huge wardrobes (floor to ceiling) for such small room and Ivan took very good care of all furniture and the room throughout the process. Everything works as they should and I am very happy with the finished work. Highly recommended.
