Man and Van vs Skip Hire

Man & Van

Skip Hire

If the rubbish is not dense or heavy say for example garden waste, greenery and mixed general waste, then it’s highly likely that booking a man and van is likely to be the best option.

Involves loading, which is hard work, time consuming & can be dangerous. How valuable is yuor time?

Here at martins waste our man and van collection costs start from £45 and we can take much more than the smallest 4yd Skip of garden of mixed general waste that would cost you £180.

Depending on weight, £180 would get you 6-10 yards of your rubbish removed, so more that twice as much in some cases if you use a Man & Van.

3.5 tonne transit vans are much more efficient if access is not great. Our Two-man teams will come inside and do all the lifting for you.


Skip lorries are big and bulky, so there may be an issue when having a skip in smaller spaces.

No permit or pavement license required.

Often requires a permit (around £70) Cannot be accessed by third parties

Having a Man & Van leaves your driveway/outside spaces free, stops your neighbours putting their waste in your skip - and at Martin's Waste Solutions, we even sweep up after ourselves.


Can take up too much room & look unsightly. Avoid extra charges - You may get charged for extra items that are not supposed to go into a skip - you'd be surprised what you can't put in one. And, they may not take it away of you overfill it.

Only pay for what we collect.

What Our Clients Say

I used this company to clean out my late mums flat because they were compassionate and allowed me to stay on site to ask me what I was keeping when they found certain items it was a 2 day job and had been allocated Reece and James.
