Choosing forklift tipping skips

At direct2u we have a wide range of tipping skips that are CE-marked and fully welded. They are ideal for managing material handling. In particular in fast-paced environments. This includes warehouses and factories. It's vital that systems and equipment are in place for the collection and movement of items. Skips are ideal for collecting waste materials. This includes metal, cardboard, and plastics. Our tipping bins can provide a durable recycling system. As a result, helping streamline your waste management.

Over time, waste accumulates and moving these full skips can be a daunting task. Most of our range include forklift truck sleeves. This allows quick and secure movements to transport and empty skips. There are a few different emptying mechanisms for skips. But the main types are manual and auto tipping skips..

Manual tipping means that you can operate the skip using a manual handle. Automatic tipping uses different release points to activate the mechanism. This feature allows the tipping skip to empty whilst the forklift operator remains seated. Not only does this save time, it also helps improve safety and reduces workplace accidents!


Understanding which of our skips suits your needs is an absolute essential before buying. We're here to help you figure out which forklift tipping skip ticks all of your boxes.p>


Manual handling means that you decide when the skip empties. You control this by using a manual release handle. Releasing the handle activates the mechanism. This will roll the skip forward to empty any waste. Its simple, yet, effective system allows for easy waste management. These skips are manufactured with high quality mild steel in the United Kingdom. As a result, ensures they are robust and durable, ready to handle daily use.


Our range of automatic forklift skips are ideal for streamlining your recycling process. Due to their ability to tip without a manual release handle, you might know them as self-tipping skips. Use different release points. You can find these on the front or bottom of the skip. With this, you can tip without any need for the operator to leave the chair of their forklift. This allows for a better workflow and improves health and safety when tipping. Also, refer to our Auto-Lok automatic tipping skips. These are designed for use with forklift trucks and telehandler skips for the greatest efficiency at work..


At Direct2U, you can maximise the potential of our auto locking Tipping Skips with their optional accessories. So, we ensure there are options for you to do so. You will find that with most of our skips, there are accessories that will increase the effectiveness of your product. One of the most popular options is castor sets. This will allow you to transform your stationary skip to a mobile skip. As a result, gives you the freedom to manoeuvre your skip. Alongside this, you will have the option to add a Galvanised Lid to your skip. This can help protect its contents from bad weather or loose waste from falling out. When browsing the many options of skips, you will have all these options available to you.


As you can see, forklift skips are essentials in industrial environments. In particular for material handling and waste management. It's important to remember that they are useful when it comes to recycling. On average, the UK commercial and trade industries generate 40 million tonnes of waste. Together, we can help reduce waste and recycle more.

Tipping skips such as our Twin & Triple Skips can be used to separate different materials. A few examples are plastics, cardboard, and metal. You can then take these materials and place them into recycling banks with ease, as each section tips to the others. Our Stacking Skips are also a great solution for this. Stacking skips are available in many colours. They are easy to colour code and identify for certain uses. This means you can get a skip for cardboard, one for glass, another for general waste and so on. Each product is fully tested before despatch.
