Skrap is an innovative PropTech startup that offers all kinds of construction hire services on-demand to construction companies

skrap picSkip hire is something that most of us don’t think about ever needing, and yet whether it’s work being done to the house or a big clearout of the garage, a skip is likely to come in handy for more people than would expect it. This one-off use means that we’re not likely to have a phone book full of suppliers, and so simply being able to take out your phone and have one on its way within a few taps would make life a lot easier.

But what about construction workers who find themselves in need of other types of construction-related hire?

Wembley-based proptech startup Skrap started in 2017 as a skip hire app. In only 4 steps, you could choose your skip size and have it delivered. Since then, they have grown quickly to offer all kinds of construction hire services on-demand to construction companies.

And all it takes is 5 simple steps.

All prices are displayed up front and are a flat rate no matter where in London you need your delivery, and you are able to keep track of total spend in each category that the app has to offer. There is also a live chat function built into the app so if you need additional assistance, you can always talk to someone in real time.

In August, Skrap announced that they had closed a seed funding round and raised £1.2m from Vanneck Investments, and many entrepreneurs and angel investors. The team of 25 will be using the funding to scale and expand across the rest of the UK and beyond.
