Skip Damage Prevention

Skip Damage Prevention

How can I stop it from getting damaged in the first place?

Natural conditions will gradually wear down the quality of your skip but there are some things you can do to slow down this process!


- Try not to place it on rough ground (This can dent/scratch the bottom)

- Keep it covered at night (This will both protect the skip and prevent light materials from escaping. You can also prevent people from throwing things into your skip when you’re not around!)

- Be careful when putting heavy materials inside (If you put them in too quickly or roughly, you may dent/scratch the sides of the skip)

 

How much will it cost to repair my skip?

How hard or expensive it will be to fix your skip depends on the extent of the damage and the size. Larger skips with extensive damage will be more expensive than smaller skips with a small amount of damage, for example.

Depending on what the issue is, repairing your skip could be super cheap or super expensive.

But… it’s worth it for good customer service and satisfaction!
