We hired out a skip to a customer who was after skip hire Manchester, who asked for it to be placed in his front garden as he was doing some groundwork on the front yard. So far, so simple.
We then got a call from a neighbour saying the whole skip full of garden waste was up in flames. Fire engines were called and the fire was doused, but all was left was a blackened shell-like, warped skip; a shadow of its former self and pretty much useless.
The client admitted full liability (we had told him no fires were to be held in the skip) and he paid the costs, but it’s a good lesson. However much a good idea setting fire to the waste in a skip may seem, it’s not allowed. Skips aren’t fireproof, and the chances of setting fore to something dangerous is high.
