Anyone done this? Any advice?

Where do you go to rent them?

Gimme a rough idea of what it costs ....

Do you have to get some sort of permission from Dublin City Council if it is going to be left on the street? If so, do you organise this or the skip company?

How long does it take to get one? i.e. can I book one today for next week ...

Quick to get, about 150 for a smallish one. Don't need permission but you need to make sure it is nice and visible, the reflective stuff on them is usually missing so if someone knocks into one its your fault!

really? Jaysis my ma is on first name terms with her skip contractor so often are they hiring skips for one reason or another. Even I know his name - and it is Brendan.

€140 for a small one? Bastards.
That's our garden left looking like a bomb site for the next while, so.
