Why Choose Man and Van Clearance over Skip Hire

Skip hire in Cornwall can sound like a tempting option when looking at clearing rubbish out of your home or garden. Have you considered a Man and Van Clearance? But it’s important to weigh up the options and consider all the costs involved.

Paying the right amount

Hiring a skip requires you to know which skip size you require. Calculating the size of skip can be quite tricky! It’s easy to end up with a skip that is too small for the job and you have to hire a second skip. You may pay for a large skip that has lots of unfilled space at the end of your rubbish removal. Neither is cost effective!

Unlike Skip hire, The Green Clearance Company provide free no obligation quotes for Clearances in Cornwall. We take into consideration if you have items such as antique furniture and will discuss if we can offset any charges. To speed up the quoting process, you can email or WhatsApp photos to us of the areas to be cleared. Obtaining a quote will give you the exact cost of your clearances, no hidden charges. Our team will figure out how many trips will likely be needed or how many vans will be required.

Skip hire and licence costs

Skips take up a lot of space and will need a fair size area to place them. This can be an issue in itself for many people with poor access.
