So, Tuesday I call the company I ordered a skip through, and asked for it to be picked up on Friday morning. This would let me park the car in the driving bay, and back the van up to just outside my house. Imagine my surprise when I got home yesterday and found that my skip had mysteriously turned invisible. After walking through where the invisible skip was, I concluded that it wasn’t actually invisible, and was in fact not there any more. A quick word with my neighbour confirmed that the local depot had come back that morning and removed the skip.
So, a quick call to the national company I used, and a very polite jumping up and down over the phone, and I’ve got a skip coming tomorrow, pickup on Monday. Gratis. So I can finish throwing stuff out on Sunday.
