Professionally Managed Muckaway in Ashford | Shaw Haulage

Smaller companies and sole traders around Ashford, one of Shaw Haulage’s principal service areas, may not often consider the benefits of outsourcing muckaway – thinking it a strategy more commonly employed by larger companies. But nowadays, muckaway is a vital, affordable service available to all. By using grab hire vehicles and similar tools, we can make short work of site clearance, allowing builders and developers to move onto the next job or begin subsequent phases without delay. Whether assisting with a demolition, construction work, or even on-going land restoration, professional muckaway can save you time and money that would otherwise be spent paying staff to carry out the clearance themselves – without time-saving haulage equipment.

There’s also the benefit that muckaway will see waste recycled, as we can screen and process materials and turn them into secondary aggregates that will be re-used in projects in and around the Ashford area. Shaw Haulage cuts out any middle man by also serving as your aggregate suppliers, using our fleet of grab hire vehicles to transport up to 80tns of primary or secondary (recycled) aggregate to your site.

But below, we’ve looked to focus on muckaway to provide further insight into how our team approach it. If you wish to get a quote for a quantity of aggregate, or for standalone grab hire services, call our team on 01795 420606. Our aggregate suppliers can also assist you if you’re unsure what type of aggregate will best suit a particular task.

Muckaway / Site Clearance Explained

The idea is to quickly and effectively clear a site of all accumulated waste, ensuring it is both hazard and obstacle free, and ready to be used or developed (e.g in the case further construction, landscaping or land restoration work is required). Some Ashford clients require multiple visits from our muckaway team, for example:

  • Before a project starts
  • During a project (when the site gets very messy or a large amount of waste has built up)
  • After a project concludes (to deliver the clean, finished product to the end user)

If your project only involves the production of a very small amount of waste, you may not need a dedicated muckaway team, and the muscle the grab hire vehicles they employ bring to the table. But with larger jobs, like the aforementioned land restoration projects, or where a large amount of aggregate is being employed, they can provide significant benefits; and not just in terms of speed and efficiency of clearance.

For example, our site surveys and risk assessments ensure that waste will be removed responsibly and without incident. These surveys and assessments consider how waste will be recycled, and other environmental concerns such as the protection of wildlife. So not only does our qualified team of muckaway specialists ensure that site clearances allow you to meet deadlines, but they also meet all legal obligations that relevant legislation may hold you to.
