Is Grab Hire cheaper than a skip?

It can be, yes! It really depends on the type of waste you have to dispose of. Grabs primarily deal with two waste streams – hardcore and soil & stone, which make them ideal for domestic garden projects, driveway renewals, building works, house renovations and landscaping projects. They are also widely utilised for many commercial ventures including building and construction, house building, landscaping, utilities, groundworks and demolition.

Mayo Grab Hire is ideal for heavy waste that may not be suitable for skips. Our 8 wheel grab lorries make light work of removing heavy waste, so it’s a quick and easy option for getting rid of large volumes of unwanted materials quickly.


  • Opting for grab hire frees up space on site as once the waste has been taken, it’s gone, rather than being stored onsite in a skip for days or weeks or even on the road requiring permits for the local council.
  • It’s a great way to get rid of large volumes of waste in one go, making a grab more efficient than multiple skips, we can even delivery aggregates, sand and topsoil on the same trip.
  • Unlike with a skip, you don’t have to estimate your waste levels as closely as grabs can take greater quantities and can do additional runs if needed, same day!
  • Our grab vehicles can be used at sites with low walls and fencing – removing the need to move the waste manually.


  • Grab Hire with Mayo, Manchester is quick and easy to arrange, so you could have your waste removed as quickly as the same or next working day as a result of a single phone call.
  • We’re reliable so you can rest assured that when you hire a grab with us, we’ll be there on the requested date, enabling you to get on with the job at hand.
  • The process is quick! Our skilled and competent drivers will ensure that their grab lorry is on and off your site within half an hour, taking all your unwanted waste with them and even delivery aggregates and topsoil on the same trip!
  • Waste collected by Mayo Grab Hire is often repurposed, which is great for the environment as it’s being reused rather than going to landfill. Soil is removed and recycled or redirected to infill projects, and hardcore is used to produce our range of quality recycled aggregates such as Recycled MOT Type 1 or Recycled Washed 10mm Pipe Bedding also known as pea gravel or drainage gravel.
