Sharp Skips - Our History

Sharp skips was established in the spring of 1983 by Terry and Tom Sharp. They were aided by their father to purchase a dodge mini skip loader along with 10 mini skips. To begin with, Tom (who incidentally is confined to a wheelchair) drove the first lorry while his brother Terry continued to operate a seperate business, which had also been established by the brothers. The mini skip business was such a success that they were then able to buy a larger vehicle to meet the demand for larger skips.

After approximately 6 years, the business premises moved from Upminster Essex to Rainham Essex, where Sharp skips is still operating from. Due to the success and growth of the business, there is now a fleet of skip lorries, roll on/off lorries and bulk tippers. There is also a modern office with a number of staff who are able to deal with all enquiries in an efficient and informal manner. Sharp skips is primarily a family run venture, with Terry and Tom's sister Sharon, their sons and daughters and a nephew in the office with Mum and Dad helping at times too. The company employs an excellent, skilled team of operatives to ensure that the high level of service that our customers have become accustomed to is maintained at all times and to continue the controlled growth of the business.
