Terms & Conditions
Please read the below carefully
RMS Skip Hire, under no circumstances, accepts liability for damage claims arising from vehicles delivering/collecting on private property.
Clients or contractors requesting skips to be delivered/collected onto private land do so at their own risk.
By hiring skips from RMS, you automatically agree to our terms and conditions.
The nature of the work activity involved in delivering or collecting skips is considered high risk, as we use heavy vehicles operating mechanical and hydraulic equipment.
When delivering or collecting off the public highway (onto private land), there is potential for damage to occur on your property. If you (or contractors) ask us to proceed off the public highway onto private land, it must be clearly understood that it is your responsibility and request.
Equally, If the public highway is damaged while delivering or collecting skips to your property, you must report it to the local authority.
For clarification, the onus for damage on the private property sits directly with the client or contractor who requested RMS to deliver/collect skips in that location.
No hazardous materials must be placed in the skip, including but not limited to, asbestos, fridges, TV’s or other monitors, tyres, liquids, pyrotechnics, paints and solvents. Materials of this type placed in a skip could endanger our staff and will incur the hirer additional charges or the material returned to your site.
Skip Road Licences
If your skip requires a permit to stand on the road we will apply to the Highways Authority on your behalf.
We will collect the skip on last day of permit unless you contact us BEFORE licence expiry date, we will then apply to extend the permit period on instructions from the customer provided a payment is received from the customer to RMS Skip Hire.
The Highways Authorities do not refund permit applications.
Skips in the Public Highway
It is the customer’s responsibility to provide lights and cones. Lights to be positioned on the containers and lit during the hours of darkness and cones to divert the flow of traffic. Any call out by the authorities is chargeable.
There will be no refunds for part filled skips.
Level Loads Only
Containers are only to be filled so they form a level top with the side of the skip. If the driver considers the load unsafe we will be unable to move the container. If overloaded, but considered safe to transport, a surcharge will be levied.
Burning in the Containers
Fires are not permitted in the containers. Any damage caused by the burning whether accidental or deliberate will be chargeable.
Unless arrangements for a longer period have been agreed, the skip hire period is a MAXIMUM 14 DAYS, RMS reserve the right to collect the skip at anytime after the FIFTEENTH day from delivery.
