Occasionally when customers load all of the heavy weight up one end of the skip bin, this can cause the skip bin to slide on the surface of the driveway a little and could leave a small scratch on the surface. to avoid this, simply spread the load evenly over the entire length of the skip bin. Alternatively, you may leave some wood for us to place under the skip bin, this will ensure no damage at all to your driveway surface.
