Testimonials

Having booked a skip pick-up for TOMORROW, they managed to re-route another driver and my skip was picked up TODAY, within half an hour of my original phone call! And I was worried about a massive planter between the skip and the road, and the driver was extra careful and did a FANTASTIC job. Thank you very much :-)
