Adverse Weather

When we receive snow and ice children of all ages love it, but for anyone who works in the transport industry, this type of weather is seen as a nightmare. If you thought driving a car in bad weather was a challenge think about driving a lorry; they are much bigger, heavier and are often top heavy with all kinds of materials inside. If anything was to go wrong on the roads a lorry can impose a danger to themselves, others and whatever they may be carrying.

As a skip hire company we deliver all over Cork City & County and a lot of our deliveries are based in residential areas. These areas are sometimes neglected from a gritting vehicle, making it difficult for us to do our job. If the weather is bad we have to negotiate icy driveways, which are sometimes on a slope and to take away or deliver a skip in these conditions can be very hard. Let's not forget, we have to do all of this without damaging any property or hurting anyone!

Blame it on the Weatherman

During these weather conditions we take a pragmatic approach and take a look at the weather forecast for the forthcoming days. We generally look between five to ten days ahead and anticipate the days that may cause problems. If we have a booking or collection the day before a potentially bad day of weather we will contact you and explain we may not be able to go out for safety reasons. Once the bad weather has cleared we will do our best to prioritise this work before any new bookings or collections.

You can always buy a new lorry, but you can't buy a new person; that's why we are so careful when the bad weather is concerned.
