What Is Grab Hire?

By using a hydraulic grab arm and bucket to collect and clear away large quantities of waste, areas which may otherwise be inaccessible can easily be cleared.

Grab hire is particularly well suited to moving substantial amounts of waste (building, construction, and garden). Specially designed with accessibility in mind, grab lorries offer a convenient, low-cost alternative to other waste removal methods.

Grab hire is a cost-effective means of removing large quantities of waste, usually generated during construction and landscaping projects. When hiring a skip, you will simply get a container which you then have to load, however, grab hire comes with a qualified operator who will load the waste right into the back of a lorry.

We have a fleet of well-maintained grab lorries ready to spring into action at a moment’s notice. These lorries come in different configurations, to ensure you can find something that suits your project’s type and size, as well as the size of the site. These include:

  • 4 Wheel Grab Lorry – Ideal for smaller sites where larger vehicles may struggle with access. They n carry up to a maximum of 10 tonnes of material.

  • 6 Wheel Grab Lorry – For mid-sized projects consider something that strikes a balance; our 6-wheel lorries can transport up to 13 tons of material.

  • 8 Wheel Grab Lorry – Our 8-wheel grab lorries are ideal for larger projects, and are capable of transporting up to 16 tonnes of material.

What Are The Benefits of Grab Hire?

Typically grab hire is used to dispose of concrete, rubble, and paving slabs. It’s also a great means of loading and unloading bricks and palettes, and we have specialised brick grabbers which are designed for this purpose.

One of the primary benefits of grab hire services relates to the amount of waste which can be held. For example, a typical grab lorry can usually fit over twice the volume of waste as two skips. This clearly offers a cost-effective solution to any large-scale clearance.

Grab lorries can also travel directly to your chosen site at a time which is suitable for you. This ensures the minimum disruption.

What Types of Waste Can Grab Lorries Remove?

Because of the excellent accessibility offered by grab lorries, they can pick up waste material from some of the hardest-to-reach areas.

Common examples of the type of waste they can remove include:

  • Soil

  • Muck

  • Garden Waste

  • Hardcore Waste (inc. Concrete)

Inert landfill material, such as chalk, stone and clay can also be accepted separately, as long as it doesn’t contain turf and tarmac. If unsure about what can be disposed of with our grab hire service, don’t hesitate to call us.

We aim to be as eco-friendly as possible and adhere to the Environment Agency (EA) laws. Therefore, any waste we remove in our skip hire and grab hire vehicles will be thoroughly screened at recycling centres local to Orpington, Beckenham, Chislehurst and Swanley.

Do I Need Skip Hire or Grab Hire?

One of our most received questions relates to which service would be most suitable for a clearance. Grab hire or Skip hire? Whilst both offer excellent solutions, grab lorries are particularly well suited to removing large quantities of waste.

If you are unsure which service you need, please contact us today and our team will be happy to offer informed advice.
