There are two types of skips:

A marrel skip is a metal container lifted off the rear of the skip truck by the use of hydraulic arms or chains. These bins cannot be dragged as they do not have wheels. Depending on their size, some marrel bins have a wheelbarrow access door for easier loading.

A hook lift skip or hook bin tends to be larger capacity skip bin. The hook bin is a little longer in length and will have lower sides with a rear opening tailgate for bobcat access. A hook bin rolls off the back of the truck.
