A Man and Van Rubbish Collection Service is a convenient, cost effective solution for most types of garden, household and business waste. A two person team will arrive is a comprehensive service and, unlike using a skip takes away the need for the customer be involved in any way in the removal of the waste.

The waste will be collected from any part of the property, loaded onto the truck. When the loading is complete any lose material will be swept up leaving the site tidy.

Rates will be calculated based on the volume of waste for removal, the labour involved, transport costs and finally the cost of disposal. This is presented as a single figure before collection begins.

One of the best features of this service is that you don’t always need to be there, if the rubbish is accessible. Companies like Martin’s waste solutions will provide before and after pictures along with an electronic waste transfer note, when the job is complete.

How do I chose my man and van service?

In most towns there is a usually a choice of organisations offering a man and van service. Our favourite is obviously Martin’s Waste Solutions!

Councils usually offer a bulky waste collection service.  Occasionally this is free, but most now charge – recently the costs of these services has gone quite a bit. They normally collect furniture, appliances and other household ‘junk’, but not builders and home improvement waste, which is  ‘trade waste’ and not something councils subsidise. You may need to wait a few weeks and are usually expected to get the waste to the front of your building for loading.

If you want the full service listed at the start get in touch with Martins waste solutions. However other companies are available, ranging from 1 man operators to national companies.  Here are a few things to look for.

How transparent are their pricing policies and will they stick to price they quoted for the volume of waste or rubbish you asked for.

Are they a licensed waste carrier, you need to be sure they are disposing of the waste responsibly and taking it to licensed waste transfer station and recycling centre.

How easy are they to deal with, many national companies don’t want to speak to you if you have any questions  and will only communicate via chat or email. Some customers prefer to speak on the phone.

Many charities will take reusable items like old furniture but are increasingly reluctant to take old sofas due to fire regulations.

What types of waste is a man and service good for.

Most forms of household and garden and commercial waste are suitable for a two man service. These included garden waste, builders and renovation waste, like plasterboard, rubble. This service is often used for house clearance or garage clearance. This is often a great removal service for your old furniture, beds, mattresses and sofas.

Many commercial landlords and tenants and contractors find Man and van rubbish collections a great alternative to skips.

Is weight a problem?

Heavy or dense loads might require more than one load as Man and van teams usually operation commercial vans and not HGV vehicles. If you are not sure contact a business than can offer a full range of services including skips and grab lorries for the best solutions.
