Hiring a grab lorry - instead of a skip
Whether for a construction company, commercial business, or a homeowner; skip hire is often the most common choice when it comes to the disposing of waste from a project. This article looks at reasons hiring a grab lorry may be a more beneficial choice.
When hiring a skip, the local council may require a permit depending on where it will be located. Although these permits are often approved, they call for a lot of organisation and planning in advance – as well as the additional cost.
Grab lorries will remove all waste from a site, no matter how many trips need to be made, ensuring that all waste is disposed of. Mixed loads are also collected, meaning that organising and separating waste may be unnecessary.
