  •  Should be ok .....it might pay to throw down some boards to spread the weight

      Agreed...boards down is a good idea.

      Don't let the skip lorry onto the drive though and ideally set it up so he does not need to put his legs on the drive when he collects. I've seen the point load through the legs really mess up surfaces before, especially if full of heavy material though its worse with big 8yd skips. Finally make sure they put a hefty piece of timber under the legs too when they collect.

        Excellent point Ed about the wagon driving onto the drive this is a real concern and only one practical place where a skip can go which will mean a long reverse down the drive , Trees and railings along the garden boundary will make it difficult to sling the skip over from the road .

        The other option is to pay the extortionate local authority skip license which is nearly as much as the skip costs and have it on the road outside .  Hippo bag perhaps but the cargo will be heavy old slabs . 

      • I'd agree fully.

      Thanks Jason boards i feel will prevent or reduce any damage to a minimum , there is something about the drive surface that strikes me as being more aesthetic than practical , like it might sink under too much weight .
