unobstructed access to the equipment on the scheduled pick-up day, this

cannot guarantee that some footprint may not be left behind. It is
highly recommended that the customer protect any surface where the
roll-off is going to be placed with a 4’ x 8’ sheet(s) of plywood. The
Customer affirms that any right of way provided by customer for the
roll-off container is sufficient to bear the weight of all contractors’
equipment and vehicles required to perform the contracted service. The
customer assumes all liabilities for damages to private driving
surfaces, pavement or road surfaces and entire container placement site.
Coastal Container shall not be responsible for any damages to any
private driving surface, pavement or accompanying subsurface of any
route associated to perform the service that was contracted. We strive
to maintain the integrity of our customer’s property and work diligently
