Grab Hire Versus Skip Hire

Grab hire

It’s one of the big questions we often get asked..

Should you opt for skip or grab hire when it comes to removing the waste from your landscape or construction project?

Depending on the project and what waste you are wanting to remove, both options have their plus points.

A skip is usually a good option for mixed waste including house-hold rubbish and you can also get smaller sized skips if the job requires minimal waste removal.

However, if you are looking at a decent amount of muckaway and site clearance, especially of groundworks, soil, garden waste, bricks etc grab hire would be the better option.

Grab hire is one of the best kept secrets in the industry because of the time and money it can save.

  • With the capacity to collect over 2 times the amount of waste you’d put into a standard use 8 yard skip, it is a much more cost effective option.
  • The beauty of grab hire, is it can also navigate over walls and fences and removes the hassle of finding space for a skip.
  • You can save additional time and money by combining the delivery of aggregates or topsoil ready to start your project with the removal of the waste.

What can you collect with grab hire?

Our grab hire services are used by landscapers, builders, local authorities and driveway specialists across West Yorkshire, North Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, Kirklees and Calderdale.

We collect:
• Earth and Soil
• Brick and concrete
• Recyclable materials (e.g. hard-core)
• Clean inert
• Muck (or clay)

Here at RJC we have a registered waste carriers licence and all our grab hire collections are taken to recycle centres instead of landfill.

How much does Grab hire cost?

One standard 8 yard skip is charged around £200-£250 per week. In comparison, our grab wagon can collect twice the amount of waste for around £220, saving a massive 50% on costs.

When you combine that with any cost savings for the delivery of any aggregates we can bring on the one journey, this can save further money and time.
