Hey, I'd just like to know what a skip/skip hire is. Something to do with motoring, but what is it exactly?

skip hire is when you hire a BIG metal container for when you are say knocking walla down etc etc the skip is then picked up by a lorry and disposed of

A skip looks like the tipper, on a tip lorry. It is for putting large amount of rubbish, ie you are stripping your house to redecorate it, etc. You hire it for a given period of time: once you've finished filling it with rubbish, it is picked up by a lorry. I hope it helped :)
