General

1.1 Any order placed with Brooklands Waste Truck which takes its vehicles off the public highway will be at the customer’s own risk, they will accept full responsibility for any consequential damage that may occur to persons, property or vehicles as a result of this. This includes gates, walls, paving slabs, tarmac, trees, hedges etc.

1.1 A Customers should be aware that damage could occur when vehicles are instructed to leave the public highway. It is unlikely that private driveways are constructed to take the weight of a loaded skip lorry, so there is a probability that damage could occur when the vehicle comes onto the property. Access to domestic property is not normally of a width to allow easy access for a large vehicle therefore when manoeuvring some damage could occur to property. Employees are trained to and will take every precaution to avoid any damage, as detailed in condition.
