Using Your FLEXiSKiP

How it works

Unpacking and preparing your FLEXiSKiP

To start, locate your FLEXiSKiP within its satchel. We suggest positioning it within a distance of four meters from the kerb. Ensure you inspect the area for potential obstructions such as powerlines, driveways, pathways or parked vehicles. Next, unfold it and place it flat, preparing it for filling.
