Advantages of Grab Hire in Chelsea and the Nearby Areas

Our grab hire and muck away solutions are designed to meet the needs of our domestic and commercial clients in Chelsea. Whatever size job your waste clearance may be, our grab lorry team will remove unwanted, waste materials quickly and efficiently. Often compared to rubbish clearance services undertaken by skip hire companies, LTS Grab Hire offers many benefits in contrast to skips.

Grab Hire vs. Skip Hire

1. Time Efficient Waste Clearance


One of the major benefits of grab hire and muck away services is how fast and efficient a grab lorry is in comparison to hiring a skip unit. Chelsea home and business owners can rely upon our team for a quick turnaround for a waste clearance, with same-day, emergency callouts subject to availability. We’ll arrive at your property, load up the waste and take it away in approximately 15-20 minutes, depending on the amount of rubbish clearance required. Whereas skips tend to remain on properties for longer periods, which can be cumbersome for accessing your premises as well as being an eyesore.


2. Permit-Free Grab Hire and Muck Away Services


Due to the speedy timeframes in which it takes for our grab lorry team to turn up and complete a waste clearance job, no permits are required. If Chelsea clients were to opt for skip hire instead, smaller properties with limited access and larger loads for rubbish clearance are likely to need a roadside skip. If there isn’t room to fit a skip on your premises, such as on a driveway or front garden, clients would need to apply to the local London Borough Council for a permit. This can take up to a week to organise in advance. Roadside skips without a valid permit are at risk of being removed and clients can incur a fine up to £1000.


3. Versatile Grab Lorry Fleet


Our grab hire vehicles can manage a wide-range of capacities, from a small rubbish clearance at your Chelsea home to a larger muck away job at a commercial property. The compact design of our grab lorry fleet makes it easy for our team to manoeuvre narrow roads and busy construction sites. A grab lorry is especially adept at accessing spaces that are difficult to reach, such as behind walls or fences, using a hydraulic arm to retrieve unwanted items for effective waste clearances. On the other hand, skips can cause problems with parking by obstructing access to the road for yourself and your neighbours, in addition to blocking entrances and exits to buildings. The build-up of waste over time before rubbish clearance is eventually carried out can create rot, germs and bacteria to breed if biodegradable waste is exposed to heat and rain for long periods.


4. Waste Clearance for Recycling


Both grab hire and skip hire companies are expected to adhere to UK Environment Agency laws, by transporting inert, non-hazardous muck away waste to be recycled and reduce the amount of rubbish being sent to a landfill. At LTS Grab Hire, our grab lorry team ensure the following is screened for renewable resources at the nearest Chelsea recycling centre:


  • Green, garden waste, such as grass and hedge clippings
  • Hard construction materials, including concrete, brick, stone and slate
  • Builder’s sand, topsoil and remnants of earthworks
  • Wood, plastic, cardboard and paper
  • Broken furniture and old pieces of flooring


We can also remove certain household and office appliances. However, if any waste clearance or rubbish clearance includes hazardous materials, we will advise Chelsea clients on how to arrange for these to be disposed of ethically.
