If you listen to Heart 103.4FM or 97.1FM, you may be familiar with our advert ‘1, 2, 3, SKIP!’ Yes, that’s the one, the advert that you can’t get out of your head.

Well, if that’s the case, you’ll be pleased to hear that (seeing as spring is in the air) it is out with the old and in with the new, and we can exclusively reveal that we have replaced that advert which something a little bit crazier but equally as catchy.

Featuring an old sea captain (name withheld) that can’t get his head around the fact we’re called ‘Alan’s Skips’ and not ‘Alan’s Skippers’, the 30 second commercial highlights the fact that if you’re looking for a great value skip, whatever your needs, we can help. What we can’t do, however, is send you a sea skipper: We just don’t have any, sorry.

Heart FM, which first launched in the West Midlands in autumn 1994, is one of the biggest and most recognised radio stations in the UK. With quality content and relevant local news, Heart FM has grown to be loved by a wide and diverse customer base. At Alan’s Skip Hire, we pride ourselves on the quality of service we provide our customers and our standing in the local area as a company that places service first, which is why it was important to us to choose a radio station that shares our values, and one that we could be proud of aligning ourselves with.

So, if you tune in and catch our brand new skipper… sorry, we mean skip advert, then please let us know what you think by tweeting us at

Also, look at for the advert by ASH Metal Recycling: it’s equally ‘out-there’!
