Choosing Between Skip Hire and Grab Hire Services in Orpington

We’re here to help domestic and commercial clients in Orpington to make the right choice between skip hire and grab hire services. At Motion Hire Ltd, we specialise in both skip hire and grab hire solutions for site clearances with a dedicated team that possesses more than 30 years of combined waste disposal experience. This includes using our skip hire and grab hire vehicles to supply a range of aggregates and top soil to help renovation and construction projects get completed on time.

Skip Hire or Grab Hire?

Whether you require waste removals for single room property refurbishments or larger scale site clearances at building sites in and around Orpington, we can offer clients advice, no matter what size the job may be. There are many advantages and differences between skip hire and grab hire services, depending on the type of project and the style of property. Our team will take the time to get to know your needs so we can provide a tailored waste management service, together with provisions for top soil and building aggregates. Skip hire and grab hire may appear to be similar but we will help Orpington clients to differentiate between the two options.

Benefits of Skip Hire

  • Skips are available in multiple sizes to accommodate small to large volumes of inert biodegradable waste
  • Waste removal companies can organise roadside skips with the local council on your behalf
  • Rubbish is stored in a safe and tidy manner, limiting disruption to your Orpington property
  • Skip hire can be extended, depending on availability and the length of roadside permits
  • Skips can conveniently be delivered and collected by the skip hire team with a same-day service

Benefits of Grab Hire

  • Grab hire services use vehicles with hydraulic arms to reach waste in hard-to-reach areas, making it significantly less labour intensive
  • The self-loading machinery provides a fast and efficient way to load large quantities of waste in shorter periods of time, as waste collections typically take 15 to 20 minutes to perform
  • Grab hire lorries are generally compact in design and can easily manoeuvre around domestic properties or work sites
  • Unlike skip hire, grab hire vehicles don’t require permits as they don’t need to remain on your Orpington property
  • Top soil and aggregates can be delivered to homes and construction sites in large quantities

Choosing the Right Solution

The main deciding factor is the size. This relates to the size of the waste clearance job and can also be due to the size of your Orpington property. Skip hire units can hold large volumes that accumulate rubbish over time, however grab hire lorries are designed to collect bigger loads in one go. Grab hire services have a quicker turnaround and it’s easier to transport top soil and aggregates between sites with the use of the hydraulic arm. We recommend considering if there is room for a roadside skip or if a grab lorry would be easier to access your premises at locations with restricted parking.
