Muck Away Lorry Hire in Herne Bay

Oftentimes a worksite or areas in a worksite present a challenge for placement of skips. Another issue with skips is the difficulty of moving them once in position, meaning if a whole area needs to be accessed, or if the area is restricted in space, a skip can pose a problem.

This is especially problematic on sites where a large volume of muck away waste is produced. Sometimes the volume of waste is too large for the use of skips and needs to be cleared more quickly and efficiently. Muck away lorries are a great solution to this problem, meaning you can have your whole site cleared in one easy visit. We collect all types of muck away waste, including:

  1. Inert, non-decompositional waste
  2. General waste, non-hazardous waste
  3. Hazardous, toxic or harmful waste

No matter the size of your worksite, with a grab lorry it can be cleared in no time. Our team are highly skilled in the quick loading and unloading of materials. We’ll arrive at the arranged time and collect waste from one or several agreed spots on your worksite. Hiring a grab lorry means we’ll be able to access awkward areas of the worksite that vehicles can’t park directly next to. Call our friendly team on 01304 626364 to find out more.

Tipper Grab or Grab Lorry, Which is Best?

Before hiring a vehicle with us it’s important you decide whether a grab lorry or a tipper grab is better for the job. This ultimately comes down to what you have available to help at your own worksite. If you operate equipment on-site which can assist in the loading of the vehicle we’d recommend hiring a tipper grab. A member of your team can then be tasked with loading up the lorry for us to take away.

If you don’t have the machinery required to do this then a grab lorry is a better option. This comes with a loading bucket attached which is used to transfer waste material from the site to the vehicle. If you don’t have the facilities to load the vehicle, or if you would like us to do the loading for you, a grab lorry is our recommendation.

Skip sizes guide

Our skip sizes range from four to 12 cubic yards which provide a very cost-effective way to dispose of bulky waste including furniture and garden waste. For a skip that will be placed on the road, there will be an extra charge of £50.00 (per week) added for a permit from the council. If a permit is required, it takes 3 days to obtain permission from the local authority so factor this in when you’re planning the hire of your skip.

To help you decide which size skip would be best for you, please refer to our waste skip sizes guide pages. We’ve included skip sizes in yards and skip capacity m3 to give you a good idea of what will fit in each skip.

The short answer is, no! You’ll be happy to know that when you hire a grab lorry, you don’t need to acquire a permit.

This trims time on your waste removal needs in comparison to skip hire in Herne Bay where you will need a permit. This is because skip hire has the potential to interfere with local traffic or cause a disturbance.
