Grab bag hire has never been easier!

Grab bag hire has never been easier!

Unsure how to remove garden or home renovation waste? We’ve answered the most common questions that we get asked about our grab bag hire service below.

What is a grab bag?

A grab bag is a durable, 90cm x 90cm x 90cm skip bag that can hold up to 1 tonne of waste. It arrives flat packed and when opened up it becomes the ideal way to dispose of small amounts of household, garden, plasterboard or inert waste such as bricks and rubble.  

Why is grab bag hire so convenient?

A lot of our customers don’t require traditional skip hire and prefer to save money by using a skip bag. In addition to being a cheaper solution, grab bags take up a lot less space than skips and do not have a maximum hire period. Customer can simply buy a bag and take as long as they need to completely fill it and then call us to arrange collection.

It’s good to know, filled AMS Bulk Bags are always ‘grabbed away’ within 5 days of a request and all filled skip bags are taking to a local recycling centre for processing.

Why might I choose grab bag hire over the Hippo Bag service?

Our AMS Skip Bag solution is comparable to the Hippo Bag service, however it is currently offered at lower priced*. This is likely due to the fact that we only operate in the BH postcode area, as opposed to all around the country.

How do I make an order?

  1. Simply add an empty ‘skip bag’ to your online basket
  2. Make a payment using our secure PayPal system, shipping is always free!
  3. We’ll deliver your bag, usually the next day (Monday to Friday)
  4. Once the grab bag is filled you call us to arrange for it to be collected

Where do you deliver to?  

We can deliver our grab bags to all BH postcodes, for further information please see our ‘Areas We Cover’ webpage.

“All the waste fitted comfortably in the bag and the delivery of the bag and its collection were quick and efficient. They also phoned to confirm the collection date which was a nice touch. Good to know that the concrete will be recycled.”

Require something larger? If grab bag hire sounds too small for the project you have in mind, our sister company, AMS offers grab truck and skip hire throughout Dorset and Hampshire.

If you require further information before placing your order, please get in contact with our team via email or call us on 01202 579579.
