Things to consider for delivery
- Minimum of a 3-metre entrance for our lorries to gain access
- We have a smaller lorry which may be better suited if you don’t have much space on your property
- Are there any low hanging cables/wires?
- Are there any obstructing walls?
- Are there any manhole/drain covers?
- Advise the driver where you would like it dropped, please don’t move the skip as it may not be accessible when we return to collect it
- Will you require a drop-down door on your skip? These are ideal when loading the skip with a wheelbarrow for example, the door can act as a ramp so you can wheel items in rather than lifting over and into the skip – perfect for getting rid of soil!
- All our lorries have hydraulic legs which are used when loading & unloading the skips to help take the weight, we use protection where we’re able to, trying to avoid causing any damage but we can’t be held responsible for any damage caused.
Providing us with as much information as possible when booking your skip, means we’re able to inform our driver with all the relevant information prior to arrival.
Information of where you’d like the skip positioned or any access issues help us with a quick and efficient service!
When will my skip be removed?
All our skips are a 7-day hire, we don’t automatically collect on the 7th day but if you could let us know when you’re finished with the skip, we aim to get it away ASAP for you. If you require the skip a little longer than the 7 day hire period, then please let us know when ordering and we can arrange a longer hire agreement with you.
Here at AKS we can arrange your Permits with the Council for you, we ask if you can give us as much notice as possible so we can insure it’s arranged prior to delivery. As the hirer you will be liable to add lights and cones around the skip to conform with certain council regulations.
How do I know if I have Hazardous Waste?
Waste is generally considered hazardous if the material or substances it contains are harmful to humans or the environment.
Examples of hazardous waste include:
- Paint Tins
- Gas Bottles/Cannisters
If you still aren’t sure if the waste you have is hazardous check if the item has any labels on or call us to ask!
