Concrete Skips For Hire

Concrete skips are an essential piece of equipment when laying foundations or concrete surfaces. They are made from hard-wearing metal, which are designed to resist all kinds of damage on a worksite. These heavy-duty accessories can be used to accurately pour and layer concrete extremely quickly.

These models will usually be attached to the crane carrying the cement for the worksurface. They can be used to easily control the amount of cement that is poured at once. These accessories are perfect for areas which are difficult to reach with traditional cement pouring methods. This can include:

  • Working at Height.
  • Working around Difficult Terrain.

Concrete skips are available in a range of sizes and styles to suit your needs. They can be designed as single or twin-flow skips depending on your needs. Whether you’re attempting to create a smooth horizontal or vertical surface, concrete skips can be essential.


Boat Skips For Hire

These skips are some of the most common accessories for use in worksites across the UK. They can be used to deal with general worksite waste. They are designed from hard-wearing metal which is resistant to all kinds of impacts and potential damages.

They can deliver a complete range of advantages to your worksite, including:

  • Low-Loading Heights.
  • Drop Down Bale Arms.
  • Easy to Hook Up to Crane.

Boat skips are a practical way to dispose of waste throughout your worksite. As they can easily be attached to your hired crane, they can be manoeuvred across your project. This allows for the easy disposal of all kinds of waste, including:

  • Bricks, Rubble and Cement.
  • Metal Sheeting and Pipes.
  • Wooden Boards and Sheets.
  • Furniture.
  • Insulation.
  • Ceiling Tiles, Cladding and Panelling.

Boat skips can be attached to all kinds of cranes. The lifting bale will automatically lock when lifted. As such, the crane operator can manoeuvre the skip as required without the need for a second operator.

These general site clearance and muck removal skips are available in a wide range of sizes and capacities. The more waste materials that you need to deal with, the larger the skip you will require. Bear in mind that, when fully or overloaded, some cranes may not be able to handle the tonnage of these skips.

Here at AE Engineering, we can provide boat skips of up to 4,000 litres. These large boat skips can tackle weight of up to 8 tonnes, so make sure that your chosen crane or piece of lifting equipment can handle it. On the smaller end, we can provide 500 litre boat skips with a safe working load of 1.3 tonnes.

In most cases, our engineers will recommend the use of a drop chain when transporting these skips. This will prevent damage to the lifting bale by the crane hook.
