Our History

image of two skips on top of each other

We are a family-run business established by the great, great, great grandfather of the current owner, Grant Scott. We now trade as the leading local choice for waste disposal and skip hire in Tadworth but our business is steeped in history and tradition. Originally located in the Elephant and Castle area of London and trading under the name of W Hawkins LTD, much of the work completed by the early business was carried out on a ‘wait and load’ basis with the use of a horse and cart.

Areas We Cover

Choosing a Grab Hire Specialist for Muck Away in Crawley

At Hawkins & Scott, we understand that clients in Crawley have a choice of grab hire services to choose from. Running muck away projects requires supreme organisation so your service provider must be able to meet your needs accordingly.


Before hiring a grab loader or a tipper hire vehicle, check that the company you are looking to use can fulfil the following requirements:


The Ability to Remove Waste from all Muck Away Projects

Most grab hire vehicles will be large enough to handle waste removal work on intermediate-sized projects in the Crawley area but if you have a large-scale excavation project to manage, you may need a tipper hire service instead. Hawkins & Scott have a fleet of grab loader and tipper hire vehicles available for projects of any size.


Supplying a Trained Operative

There’s little point in hiring a grab hire vehicle to speed up waste removal times and save money if a company is going to charge you extra for supplying a trained driver. At Hawkins & Scott, we dispatch a skilled operative with the grab loader as part of our service. Your operative should be able to remove waste from projects in Crawley within 30 minutes.


Handling Difficult Access Work

Some grab hire companies in the Crawley area still need your waste to be positioned in an accessible area because the hydraulic reach arms on their grab loader vehicles can’t extend beyond fences, hedges and hoardings. Our own grab hire vehicles have an impressive reach of 5m so we can collect your waste from just about anywhere.


Responsible Waste Management

Once waste has been moved from muck away projects in Crawley, it’s easy to forget about it and carry on with the rest of the job. A reputable grab hire company should always make you aware of what happens with collected waste. Hawkins & Scott send all muck away waste to recycling centres where it is processed and recycled into secondary aggregates.


A Polite and Courteous Service

While standards of service are vitally important when you use a grab loader or a tipper hire vehicle, it’s only fair to expect those services to be delivered with a personal touch. Hawkins & Scott are the friendly face of grab hire in Crawley and all muck away services are provided with courtesy and professionalism. We wouldn’t have it any other way!
