How can I fill a skip properly?2019-11-14T21:07:10+00:00
  • Place heavier items at the bottom of your skip
  • If applicable, break down large pieces/bits before loading it and don’t leave gaps in between
  • Fill the skip up to the level only (marked on the skip). The driver will likely refuse to take away any overloaded skip.
  • If raining, try to cover the skip to prevent it getting filled with water.

Do skips damage driveways?2019-11-14T20:07:34+00:00

Soft tarmac and block paved driveways can occasionally be marked or damaged when placing skips on them. This can normally be avoided by placing scaffold planks or larger pieces of wood where the skip is to be positioned.

While our drivers will take all precautions to avoid damages, we can not take responsibility for any damage caused to a driveway by placing or removing a skip.
