On this page, Shaw Haulage answers questions for the many prospective clients in Longfield who might be considering us for grab hire, aggregate or muckaway work in the future:

What benefits can I expect from grab hire?


For a start, you won’t have to load everything yourself. Instead, we provide a vehicle and an operator to transfer your waste to our vehicle before taking it back to our depot. Grab hire in Longfield is cheaper than skip hire. Theloading process only takes around 20 minutes and if you’re running your own workforce, labour can be used for something more profitable.


Grab vehicles are also a highly efficient solution for delivering materials with minimum disruption. As aggregate suppliers, we provide products to suit every need, unloading them in a convenient location of your choosing.


What is a muckaway service?


In most instances, muckaway is the immediate process of clearing soil, hardcore and rubble from sites following earthworks. We can also use a grab vehicle on domestic projects to remove waste as well as on land restoration sites. These are perfect for muckaway work in Longfield where soil and rubble has is behind fencing or tall partitions.


What happens to waste once you take muck away from a site?


You’ll be pleased to know that at Shaw Haulage, very little ever goes to waste. All waste derived from our grab hire service and our muckaway work is returned to Sittingbourne for processing. Working to WRAP standards, we screen waste to create recycled topsoil and aggregate, including crushed concrete, building sand and ballast.


How do you deliver aggregate?


As aggregate suppliers, Shaw Haulage delivers materials to any part of the Longfield area using a grab hire lorry from our fleet. For oversized loads, we have a 750bhp tractor unit to make deliveries up to 8 tonnes in weight. Don’t forget that we can also supply you with primary aggregate should you be looking for a high-grade sub-base on any land restoration, landscaping or civil engineering project.
