Wasted Journeys              
A wasted journey can occur due to many reasons, for example; a car blocking the driveway where the skip is to be placed, you deciding that the skip is not big enough and requesting a larger size to be brought. If a wasted journey occurs there will be a surcharge, the amount will vary due to distance. This is to cover our haulage costs and driver time.
