As the hirer of the unit, customers are responsible for any skip or container while in their control. A skip connot be hired out to be placed on a road without a permit, although Dow are happy to book a permit for you at the time of order at an additional cost.

In addition to acquiring a permit, when a skip is on the road it is the responsibility of the hirer to make it safe for the general public. Cones and lights can be hired with the skip for road use.

When a skip is being placed in a driveway, customers are asked to be aware that due to stabilizing equipment on the skip lorries, although rare, damage to the driveway may occasionally occur.
