The Customer/Hirer shall provide safe and appropriate access to the Collection site/location, a suitable area for setting down the equipment and for turning the vehicle around (where applicable).

Without prejudice Bakers Waste Services Ltd shall have no liability for any delay or default in the provision of the service caused by circumstances out of their control including but not limited to breakdown or unavailability of equipment or vehicles.
10. Wasted Journeys
A wasted journey can occur due to many reasons, for example; a car blocking the driveway where the skip is to be placed or you deciding that the skip is not big enough and requesting the container to be swapped for a larger size.
