Q The skip is to be delivered in the congestion charge zone, does this effect the price?

A If the delivery address is located within the London Congestion Charging Zone, the extra charge will be added to the cost of the skip. If delivery and collection are on different days then both days will apply. The current Congestion Zone charge is £11.50 per day.
