Grab Hire vs Skips

Updated: Jun 23, 2023

Grab trucks and skips are two common methods of waste removal used in construction and other industries.

Grab trucks are vehicles with hydraulic arms that can pick up and transport large amounts of waste or materials in a container. They are useful for collecting waste from areas that are difficult to access, such as over walls or fences, and can be loaded quickly without the need for manual labor. They are also able to carry a large volume of waste, making them suitable for larger-scale projects.

Skips, on the other hand, are large containers that are placed on site and filled with waste or materials. They are available in a range of sizes and are typically delivered and collected by a waste management company. Skips are a good option for smaller projects or where there is limited space on site. They can also be used for segregating different types of waste for recycling or disposal.

The choice between grab trucks and skips depends on a number of factors, including the amount and type of waste to be removed, the size of the project, and the access available on site. Generally speaking, grab trucks are better suited for larger-scale projects where waste needs to be removed quickly and efficiently, while skips are a good option for smaller projects or where there is limited space available for waste storage.

It's also important to consider the cost of each option, as well as any environmental and regulatory factors that may apply.
