Will Skip Hire Damage My Driveway?
Here at DP Skip Hire, we understand the common concerns of our potential clients and work hard to ensure that they’re put at ease as early on in the process as possible. One of the most common queries that we encounter is whether our skips can cause damage to driveways. Therefore, we’ll be using our latest blog to explore this in more depth. .
Can a Skip Damage My Driveway?
When you hire a skip, there are essentially two places that you can place it down. You can either place it:
- On the road with a permit
- On private land such as your driveway or garden
The truth is that some softer surfaces such as soft tarmac and grass are going to be much more susceptible to the weight of the skip than more durable materials. Therefore if possible, these should be avoided.
However, if you have no option but to use them, this doesn’t mean that they have to get damaged. Our team will work carefully when delivering and collecting your skip to ensure that your chosen surface doesn’t suffer. Whether that’s through using support beams underneath, or by just being extra diligent when placing it down, you can count on us to tailor our service accordingly.
Where Should I Put My Skip?
As previously mentioned, we tend to recommend that where possible, you should put your skip on the road. We completely understand that this doesn’t necessarily work for everyone and in those cases, private land can be used. However, placing your skip on the road brings with it a whole host of benefits. Not only will you have no concerns over any damage to the surface, but you also wouldn’t have to worry about sacrificing any of your parking space.
It can often seem daunting, feeling like you’ve got to meet the regulations of having a skip placed on the road. However, thanks to our team, you simply don’t have to worry about that. Our experienced and friendly staff will apply for the required permit on your behalf and ensure that the skip follows all regulations set out by the local authority before leaving the skip in your possession. More information about the regulations and how we deal with them can be found in our ‘Do You Need a Permit to Hire a Skip?’ guide.
