    what is grab hireIdeally suited for moving large amounts of building, construction and garden waste, grab lorries are a convenient, low cost alternative to other waste removal methods.

    Specially designed with accessibility in mind, a grab lorry uses a hydraulic grab arm and bucket to collect and clear away large quantities of waste from otherwise inaccessible areas.

    Why Use Grab Lorries?

    One of the main benefits of grab hire is the amount of waste it can hold, as a standard grab lorry can typically fit over twice the volume of waste as two skips. Not only that, it does so at the fraction of the price of hiring two skips, providing high efficiency without breaking the bank.

    The convenience of a grab lorry means it can travel directly to your site at a time most suitable for you, collecting and safely transporting the waste with minimal disruption.

    What Types of Waste Can Grab Lorries Remove?

    The exceptional accessibility of grab lorries means they can pick up waste materials in some of the most hard-to-reach areas. Examples of the types of waste grab lorries can remove include:

    •     Soil
    •     Muck
    •     General rubbish
    •     Green waste: garden waste, such as grass or flower cuttings, hedge trimmings
    •     Hardcore waste: aggregates, such as concrete, topsoil

    Skip Hire or Grab Hire – Which is Better for What Kind of Job?

    Both grab hire and skip hire remove waste from domestic and commercial sites safely and efficiently. Whilst grab lorries specialise in removing large quantities of waste, the varying skip sizes available means you will easily find the perfect waste removal solution, whatever the scale of your project.

    In addition to having a large capacity to hold waste, grab lorries are also very agile vehicles, popular for their accessibility in otherwise unreachable places. As such, all of your waste can be removed from the roadside, with no need for permits.

    It’s worth noting that accessibility may be more of an issue with skip hire, as a permit is usually required to keep the skip on the road, which can have varying approval times. Therefore, skips are usually better suited for locations where there is plenty of space to store them on site, rather than keeping them out on the road.
