In the beginning
It all began in 2012 with Enterprise Skip Hire – Seven years which now feels like an eternity ago. Armed with a handful of rusted skips and a single loader, founder James Bone worked tirelessly to build his business up. The days were long, they were hard, but they were ultimately worth it as Enterprise Skip Hire slowly developed a steady base of customers in the Aylesbury area.
As demand continued to grow, as did Enterprise Skip Hire. Our skip stock grew with quality, on-brand bins replacing the discoloured and rusty yellow ones. New equipment was bought in to improve the waste handling process. New personnel were acquired to help realise James’ dream.
Doing this wasn’t as simple as broadening the existing service however. Enterprise Skip Hire needed someone who could build a strong network of suppliers that could be trusted to provide service where we couldn’t. A veteran of doing just that, Nathan Darbyshire was soon identified and acquired to spearhead the new business.
Enterprise Waste Management
After thoughtful consideration Phil made the choice to expand his horizons Stateside. Leaving Nathan with the task of turning Tip a Skip into a full fledge national waste management company. After a thoughtful rebrand Enterprise Waste Management was born. In 2019, his valant effort was awarded with Buckinghamshire Buisness top honour of Buiness of the Year.
Within 12 months of collective endeavour Enterprise Skip Hire stood unopposed as Buckinghamshire’s premier skip hire business. Our skips numbered in the hundreds. We boasted a fleet of loaders, capable of deploying skips to satisfy every requirement. Our primitive picking line completely replaced with a multi-million pound, council-approved Waste Transfer Station.
Birth of Tip a Skip
Again not one to be content despite expectation-shattering success, James, Philip and Nathan continued to push the target line higher and higher. The team of three became four. Four became five. Five into six. The team grew in the same way our nationwide network of suppliers did. By the end of year two Tip A Skip was one of the UK’s top Waste Management providers.
With all the pieces in place Tip A Skip was born in 2016. Initially offering a nationwide solution for skip hire, we soon began to add more services to our core offering. Before the end of our first year of operation, Tip A Skip had grown far beyond its original guise; we were now providing hundreds of customers across the country with a comprehensive waste solution.
