Skips with up to 50 tonnes payload

We have produced skips in hard-wearing steels on-site for many years. Various options are offered for our skips: customers may specify extra side wall height, internal cladding or extended lengths. The skips we produce have payloads of between 25 and 50 tonnes, depending on the tipping truck used.

As well as offering adaptability of dimensions, GFT skips offer good value and long life - both of which result from the use of high-quality materials and workmanship. The skips can be painted to customers’ requirements in our own paint shop.
