LEADING Staffordshire-based web and digital marketing agency Netbiz Group have delivered phenomenal results for local business D P Skip Hire Ltd following the launch of a new website.
Boasting 25 years in business, D P Skip Hire Ltd pride themselves on offering affordable, reliable, and professional skip hire services across the Staffordshire and Cheshire regions.
The new D P Skip Hire Ltd website, www.dpskiphire.com which was launched back in December 2019, was designed and developed by leading Staffordshire based digital agency Netbiz Group to offer a user friendly experience and much improved functionality.
Since the launch of the website, D P Skip Hire Ltd have seen increases in website traffic and conversions, with a fantastic 500% increase in total website traffic from February to May 2020. The Stoke-based skip hire company have seen such a boost in demand that they are now open 7 days a week instead of 6 to fulfil customer orders following social distancing measures.
This tremendous increase in demand has also led to further investment for the firm, with the business planning to purchase 24 new skips to increase availability.
This period of high growth and success coincides with the start of the UK lockdown which has led to increased google searches for skip hire and D P Skip Hire Ltd as more people embark on home improvements and projects during this time.
These triumphant results can also be attributed to the features inputted onto the new D P Skip Hire Ltd website by Netbiz Group. They include an online booking form, allowing customers to select drop off and pick up times, along with an online payment gateway meaning that customers have access to cashless payments.
As well as the new website, Netbiz Group have optimised D P Skip Hire Ltd.’s new site, ensuring that they continue to be found by customers on search engines.
Delighted with the extremely positive uplift in website traffic and overall results, Jon Price, Operations Manager at D P Skip Hire Ltd said; “We’re so pleased to have seen such a big increase in web traffic and customer demand particularly during these very uncertain times. The online booking and payment facilities installed by Netbiz Group have really helped us to appeal to customers especially during the COVID-19 pandemic and have also greatly improved accessibility.
Jon added, Since the launch of the new website, we have received nothing but fantastic feedback from customers on how easy it is to book and pay for their skips online. We have been sure to place a high emphasis on conforming to social distancing measures as well, to reassure staff and customers that they are safe when skips are being dropped off and collected”.
Susan Erlam Account Manager and CFO and Netbiz Group commented; “We have been working with D P Skip Hire Ltd since October 2019 and have formed a great relationship with the business. Enhancing user experience and accessibility were a couple of the main aims for their new website so it is wonderful to see that they are contributing to such a high growth in website traffic and demand.
Susan continued, We are looking forward to continuing our work with D P Skip Hire Ltd and heightening these results further”.

The firm have also recently added deep clean disinfectant fogging to their portfolio to support businesses and the local community in the fight against COVID-19.
