For a crowded Island, where we live is remote. So when our septic tank looked like it needed emptying it proved a challenge to find someone with a truck small enough to get to us. Seven and a half ton I know I can get down the hill and through the deep lanes to our driveway, but all the disposal companies have nine ton trucks. Our neighbours found a company with a small truck but they charged extra! Anyway, this morning we get a phone call from guy in Coads Green who has a 9 ton short wheelbase truck with waste tank. We suggested he park up at top of hill and call us so we could walk the lane with him to make sure he could get to us. Instead he pushed on and got stuck. Took 2 hours of shunting back and forwards to reverse 100 metres.
