Full Terms & Conditions

By accepting delivery of Maxi Skips’ services, the hirer, or representative thereof, is fully accepting the terms & conditions as set out for skip hire and services provided by Maxi Skips. The hirer will be entitled to cancel an order provided that Maxi Skips receives notice of variation or cancellation no less than 24 hours before the delivery date. Any other variation to the hirer’s order will be granted at Maxi Skips sole discretion and subject to payment of reasonable costs.

In the event an order is cancelled by Maxi Skips, the customer will receive a full refund of any monies paid in advance for the cancelled order.

Prices quoted are based on the information supplied by the hirer, to Maxi Skips, and Maxi Skips reserves the right to vary prices if the hirer’s information is incorrect.

The hirer must ensure that there is a contact person, at the delivery address, to meet the driver upon arrival and also ensure that Maxi Skips has access to the drop-off point. We need sufficient space for the drop & collect, we need a 1.5m clearance around our skip for collection. Skips are usually delivered outside the property & our vehicles are not allowed to enter any site without consent from the owner or owner’s representative. Maxi Skips will not accept responsibility for damage of any kind. It remains the hirer’s responsibility to notify Maxi Skips of any difficulties in accessing their site. This includes panhandles, narrow pavements, poor road conditions, any inclines, etc.

In the event of an overloaded skip, Maxi Skips reserves the right under the Road Traffic Act and Workplace Health and Safety Act to refuse to lift the receptacle and a daily hire charge, wasted journey charges and labour fees are applicable and payable by the hirer, charged at the current rate until such time as the skip is safe to transport. Additional collections are charged per load and may change without prior notice.

Maxi Skips will place a skip at the hirer’s direction but will not be held responsible or liable for any damage to property or surrounds caused by following those directions. Maxi Skips will place the skip at the agreed area and under no circumstances may the skip be moved as this may affect the collection/loading procedure which may result in additional costs for the hirer’s account.

The hirer agrees to fully indemnify Maxi Skips against any liability for personal injury or property damage when instructed verbally at the point of order, in person on site, or otherwise, by the hirer or their representative(s), for any damages caused when directed off public roads, to a place not constructed or generally rated for heavy weights in terms of kerbs, pavements, driveways, footings, pipes, manholes, pits or other obstacle(s) in width, height or however such injury or damage may be caused.

In the event of a skip not being available for collection on its designated pick up day, and unless previous arrangements have been made for extended hire, additional transport charges and hire charges will apply for wasted travel time.

The hirer is responsible for ensuring the position for hire item(s) delivery has clear access. Blocked access due to abandoned vehicles or materials resulting in failed delivery/collection will incur standing time and or an aborted delivery charge (known generally as a wasted travel fee).

We need a minimum of 2 hours’ notice for unscheduled collections. This must be pre-arranged.

Following any verbal instruction, at the point of order, or on site, be it in the event that a signature is not gained on delivery, and/or in the event of the customer or representative thereof not being on site for signatory purposes, it will be deemed that the terms and conditions are accepted once delivery has taken place, all terms and conditions fully apply therein.

Skips will not be filled above the top rim, and there will be no items or waste protruding above or from any direction whatsoever of the skip, and all waste will be confined within the skip’s capacity.  Building rubble/sand/stone will only be filled to the indicated marking inside the bin(+-100mm from the top)

Skips will not contain any prohibited items such as asbestos/tyres/paints/liquids /foodstuffs/combustibles or gases. No fires are lit in, and no corrosive acid or noxious substance, liquid cement or concrete placed in the hire item(s). The hire will be held liable for costs incurred and damages caused to Maxi Skips assets by prohibited items.

Should any of the above-prohibited items be found to be in the hired skip, the customer is solely liable for all separation, environmental clean-up, administration and disposal/transport/hygiene costs arising from that contamination.

The hirer agrees to pay Maxi Skips for any damages, repairs or replacement thereof incurred to skips, plant or equipment that may be damaged or defaced or stolen whilst on hire or on site and being in the possession of the hirer.

The hirer agrees to pay Maxi Skips for any additional costs incurred as a result of being ordered to re-position or remove any skip(s) by a statutory or other authority whilst under contract with the hirer.

The hirer’s agree to ensure that any skip(s) that may be sited in a public area is to be adequately covered to prevent wastes from being dislodged, removed, or any escape thereof, and to fully indemnify Maxi Skips against any legal actions, damages or costs which may occur or be granted against Maxi Skips or subsidiary thereof.
