Our Services Defined

Grab Hire

In short, this service involves use of a grab lorry. Designed to fit into tight, awkward spaces, but still able to carry heavy loads, these vehicles are ideal for clearing away large amounts of waste and muck – but more on muck away later.

Grab lorries come equipped with a powerful hydraulic arm, typically fitted behind the driver’s cab. This arm can extend over walls, fences and other obstacles, lift waste up and drop it into the cargo bed.

For an aggregate or topsoil delivery, we reverse this process, i.e. we bring your material to your Orpington site and unload it in your chosen location. If access is wide and open, we can tip it out. If it’s narrow and tight, we use the arm for more precision.

For the ultimate in cost-effectiveness, we can operate as your grab hire company and aggregate supplier. This means we can arrive at your site with a load, and then collect any waste before we leave.

You can rest assured, the grab lorry we send to you can haul huge amounts of waste and material in a single trip. We tailor every aspect of your service to help keep your project on track for completion on time and within budget.

Muck Away

This service is somewhat self-explanatory. It is a broad term used to describe the removal of large amounts of inert waste. You may also hear it referred to as ‘spoil away’ or ‘cartaway’.

Landscaping and construction sites produce huge amounts of spoil, particularly in the primary phase of a project. For example, excavation removes topsoil, vegetation and other assorted debris. Old structures undergo demolition ahead of redevelopment projects, leaving behind building-related rubble.

Before the groundworks phase of your Orpington project can start, or before you take an aggregate or topsoil delivery, you need to have this waste physically removed. This is exactly what our muck away service does.

JSC Grab Hire sends a grab lorry (or multiple lorries, depending on your needs) to load up this waste before hauling it away for safe, responsible disposal.

Please note, our company only collects inert, non-hazardous waste, including:

  • Sand

  • Bricks

  • Concrete

  • Tarmac

  • Hardcore

  • Builders’ Waste

  • Demolition Waste

  • Soil and Vegetation

Don’t forget, we’re also an aggregate supplier in the Orpington area too. For more information about our primary and recycled aggregate options, please visit the Aggregates page. You can also book your topsoil delivery with us too.
