How to use your skip

If you have any problems with your skip at all, always contact us.

 

Because skip hire involves heavy haulage, it is not always possible to give you an exact time for delivery. We are very flexible and will always try our best to fit in with your plans.

Skips must be level loaded and NOT overloaded. Not only can this prove a problem in picking up the skip, it also poses a hazard to motorists and pedestrians, and is highly illegal. The correct way of loading is for the waste inside not to exceed the top of the walls of the skip, particularly if the waste is predominately brick and rubble. For health and safety reasons, Simpson Skip Hire Ltd reserves the right to “level” the waste on picking up the skip or leave skip for your attention if it is deemed unsuitable for transit.

We do not accept the following: computer monitors, televisions, full paint cans, aerosols, gas canisters, tyres, fridges or freezers asbestos or any hazardous material.

In NO circumstances should a fire be started in a skip.

The skip must not be moved from the position on site agreed by the customer and the driver.

Please ensure that the agreed position for the skip is clear of any obstruction.

 

The maximum size skip for heavy material i.e. Earth, concrete, hardcore is 8 cubic yards. The maximum weight we can legally lift and carry on the public highway is 8.5 tons per skip.

 

Because the combined weight of a skip at max payload and the weight of the lorry may reach up to 18 tons combined we cannot take reasonability for any damage caused off the road. Please see back of delivery note for full terms & conditions.
