When to use Skip Hire or Grab Hire in South Croydon

The purpose of using skip hire in South Croydon, grab hire or any other form of waste management might seem obvious at first. When a domestic or commercial customer in South Croydon comes to the end of a clearance, a refurbishment or a demolition project, waste has to be transported somewhere. Skip hire and grab hire are the obvious solutions for disposal.

There are three things to be considered in advance of any waste removal work:

  • Accessibility around the South Croydon property or site
  • The volume of waste that needs to be collected
  • The amount of manpower available to remove waste from site


Considerations for accessibility take on two different forms. Firstly, a choice between skip hire and grab hire needs to be made on where the South Croydon property or site is located. If there is nowhere available to position a skip on site, and if there’s nowhere to place a unit on the roadside (even with a permit), skip hire might not be an option.

Sometimes, it is impossible to position a skip within the confines of the site or on the immediate roadside. In this instance, our South Croydon customers might benefit from grab hire services instead.

The other form of accessibility relates to where the waste is positioned. Even if your South Croydon property or site has surrounding walls, barriers and hoardings, a grab hire vehicle can still reach over them to collect materials. If waste isn’t accessible, skip hire will be more suitable. The waste will, however, still need to be transported to the unit in multiple small loads.


LMD Skip & Grab Hire Ltd has previously encountered numerous customers in the South Croydon area who believe that the choice between skip hire and grab hire comes down to volume. While this is true to an extent, there are always other influencing factors. So, with this in mind, you’ll need our advice. There may be factors that make skip hire equally suitable for your large-scale waste removal work.

Our 20-yard and 40-yard roll-on/roll-off containers are a perfect alternative to grab hire. Especially for customers in the South Croydon area who need units onsite to collect waste at all times. In much the same as way as we do with skip hire deliveries, we can collect roll-on/roll-off containers from the site every day and replace them with new ones.


We have an established commercial client base in South Croydon which uses us for skip hire because they have the manpower needed to get skips loaded quickly. If you’re a domestic customer from the same area and you’re having to fill a larger skip hire unit on your own, it won’t be long before you begin feeling the strain of hard manual work.

Grab hire is still an option for domestic customers in South Croydon who have waste collected in one place which is still accessible for our vehicles. Instead of having to relocate waste manually to a unit through our skip hire services, a grab hire vehicle collects waste already collected and loads it quickly for affordable and effortless disposal.
