What is the difference between skip hire and grab hire?
The main difference between skip hire and grab hire is the way your waste is loaded. With skip hire, customers and clients in Sutton load waste onto a delivered skip personally. With grab hire, waste is loaded onto a dedicated vehicle by our own driver/operator. Skips tend to be more suitable for small-to-intermediate volumes of waste, whereas grab hire services nearly always focus on large-scale waste removal, aggregate removal or muck away work.
Don’t worry too much if you don’t know which service you need. Our company has 30 years of trade and industry experience, and can make a suitable recommendation over the phone.
What does a grab hire lorry do?
A grab hire vehicle has a hydraulic arm and a “grabbing” mechanism which collects domestic and commercial waste, and other materials such as topsoil, hardcore and aggregates. The arm can reach into awkward spaces at lengths of up to 6m, so this makes grab hire particularly suitable for those in the Sutton area who have accumulated waste behind fences, barriers or hoardings. This cuts down on the amount of manual work required.
Grab hire services includes the provision of a driver/operator to load waste onto the vehicle. In many cases, we can have waste loaded and removed in as little as 20 minutes.
What skip size will I need?
This will depend on how much waste you need to remove and the timescale you wish to work to. Our skip hire services in Sutton begin with small 4-yard units that cater for small amounts of household waste. We also supply builder’s skips and midi skips which provide a convenient option for tradesmen. The largest skip hire option is our 12-yard unit, which is suitable for medium-sized volumes of permitted commercial and industrial waste.
Our customers and clients also have access to roll-on/roll-off containers. These units are ideal for commercial clients with large-scale waste removal needs. Call us today with a rough calculation of how much waste you have (let us know in estimated bin bag sizes if you prefer) and we’ll recommend a suitable skip hire package to fulfil your needs.
Don’t forget that we also provide grab hire services in Sutton for large-scale removals.
What happens to my waste once you remove it?
We have advanced screening facilities at our base in Epsom, and we also use waste transfer stations close to the Sutton area which recycle the product we send to them. All materials derived from our skip hire and grab hire services are processed responsibly. Customers and clients can expect as much as 90% of their collected waste to be recycled. This minimises the amount of material sent to landfill sites and preserves the local environment.
Epsom Skip Hire is an ethical and forward-thinking business that takes its responsibilities seriously, and is always looking at innovative new ways to lower its carbon footprint.
