Great question. Skips sizes are approximate because the skip size (e.g. 2 yard) is relating to it’s cubic size. That means that different suppliers will use a different measurement of length, height and width to get to that cubic size.
Some of the skips might vary slightly in cubic size too. In our years of experience we have come across some 2 yard skips that are slightly larger than others, it’s a really tricky one to gauge!
How can I find out the exact cubic size of a skip?
Finding out the exact cubic size of a skip involves some complex maths. None of the sides are uniform in anyway, there are angles, and sides that are irregular polygons. If you’d like more information about this please call on 0117 986 5275.
