Grab Hire in Thornton Heath, Tooting and South London


When you have bulk waste to remove from domestic or commercial projects and there isn’t enough room to facilitate skips or roll-on/roll-off containers, you can still access a flexible rubbish clearance solution in the form of grab hire. Hiring a grab lorry is the best way to offload high waste volumes, and to have materials transferred to licensed premises for screening and processing.

Maguire Skips & Waste has transfer stations in Mitcham and Wimbledon.

You can use a grab hire service to remove bulk waste for house, loft, garage and garden clearances, or from building sites and other commercial spaces which produce muck away spoil such as concrete, rubble, hardcore and soil.

Grab Hire Explained

There is every chance that you have seen a grab lorry before, and our fleet is at the centre of our grab hire operations. We dispatch grab lorries with 8 wheels and huge 16-tonne weight capacities. Each lorry has a hydraulically operated reach arm and a grab bucket fitted. The jaws of the bucket grab stockpiled waste at distances of up to 6 metres then the arm retracts to bring material closer to the bed so the operator can load it onto the grab lorry.

Even if you have positioned waste in a hard-to-reach area, or behind fencing or hoardings, grab lorries will still show excellent manoeuvrability.

With a grab hire service, you won’t lose time waiting for skip deliveries or use up precious man hours by leaving your own staff to fill the units. It isn’t at all unusual for customers to underestimate their bulk load volumes and if you go for a skip hire service, this could lead to more excruciating waiting times.

Grab hire allows your own operations to move forward without delays.

As part of the package, we send out a grab lorry and operator at a specified time and on a specified date. Each grab lorry is fitted with cameras and SAT-NAV equipment so we can always take the fastest route to site and load your waste onto the truck bed while protecting the safety of your contractors.

We bring waste back to dedicated waste transfer stations in Mitcham and in Wimbledon where over 90% of material undergoes recycling.

No Fuss, No Hassle and No Permits

Naturally some domestic and commercial sites in Battersea, Clapham, Crystal Palace, Dulwich, Forest Hill, Norbury, Streatham, Thornton Heath, Tooting and Wimbledon won’t have space for us to drop off skips unless we do so at the roadside, but this would require a local authority permit. While we do arrange permits for our skip hire customers, applications made to local authorities in London can take up to five working days to be processed and approved.

Add in that most London areas have an overflow of parked cars in narrow streets, and roadside positioning might not be an option anyway.

Choose Maguire Skips & Waste for grab hire and you’ll never need to worry about where you’ll be able to place skips or applying for a permit. Pick up the phone, give us a call, let us know how much waste you have, and we’ll dispatch a grab lorry and operator when you are ready for a collection.

Note that some companies advertising skip hire and grab hire services online aren’t waste management specialists at all. Many are nothing more than middlemen who secure work for smaller businesses then put a commission on top. It is always the customer who must absorb these additional costs.

Choose Maguire Skips & Waste for grab hire and instead of having to deal with an intermediary, you speak directly to the business doing the job.
