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.
Hawkins & Scott are based in Tadworth, just 15 minutes away from the nearby town of Reigate. We are grab hire and muck away specialists for Reigate and we already have a large number of clients in this particular part of the Surrey area.
If you have been considering the use of a tipper hire vehicle or a grab loader, or if you have a forthcoming muck away project taking place in Reigate, the following FAQs should help you decide whether our services are for you.
What exactly is grab hire?
Grab hire is a removal service for large volumes of waste. Instead of hiring multiple skips, we arrive at your Reigate property with a grab loader and use extended reach equipment to lift waste onto the vehicle. This saves our clients valuable time and money.
How will a grab loader save me time and money?
If you have a large muck away project in the Reigate area, placing your waste into skips will require plenty of time and just as much labour. A grab hire truck can usually load waste within 20 to 30 minutes and because we supply a trained grab loader operative on every job, your own workforce can be kept busy with more important work.
Will a grab hire vehicle be suitable for large excavation projects?
Sometimes, but our tipper hire vehicles are large enough to cope with up to 20 tonnes of weight. Clients in Reigate have access to 8-wheeled tipper hire vehicles for collections and deliveries so if you’re considering using us to bring aggregates to site, Hawkins & Scott would love to hear from you.
Can you help with difficult access work?
Definitely. The arms on our grab hire vehicles have an approximate reach of 5m so even if your waste is stored behind fencing or hoardings, we can collect it. Hawkins & Scott specialise in difficult access waste removal and muck away projects in the Reigate area.
What happens to my waste once a grab loader has collected it?
We are licensed waste carriers with a keen approach to environmental care. All waste collected by a grab loader or tipper hire vehicle is taken to recycling plants in Reigate and many other parts of Surrey. It is subsequently screened and filtered to produce secondary aggregates for the building, construction and landscaping sectors.
