I originally called up to enquire about a skip. Spoke to a very knowledgeable lady about what I needed and decided on a man with a van service as this was cheaper.
Two days later, a man turns up with a big van and clears up all the rubbish on my drive and garage.
Professional, polite and highly recommeded.

This is my first time using WK and I am so pleased that I choose them. I had a friendly conversation to arrange delivery. The skip was delivered on time and placed on my drive to also accommodate my car. Haven't filled it yet but will do very soon.

Always quick, efficient and friendly. Had several collections from WK during the renovation of my house. Tightness of access was a problem for skips but not for WK in their van based vehicles. Would recommend without doubt.

Great company to do business with, have had three skips from them over the past year. All dropped off and collected on the correct date and very competitively priced. Highly recommended
