Common Grab Hire FAQ’s

What Is Grab Hire?

Grab hire is a low cost and convenient way to remove large amounts of waste without having to do lots of heavy lifting or hire skips. Grab lorries can pick up and clear waste quickly from tricky to reach areas, using an attached hydraulic crane arm. The waste is then loaded onto the back of the grab lorry and taken away to be disposed of.

Grab hire is also used for the delivery of topsoil and aggregates for building or landscaping projects. So if you’re surfacing a driveway or doing some garden landscaping, it’s a great way to have all the materials you’ll need for the job delivered.

Who Uses Grab Hire?
Typically grab hire is used to dispose of large amounts of waste from commercial projects, anything from demolition site clearance to landscape soils and aggregate deliveries.

However it can also be ideal for domestic purposes too, where a skip is not practical. The hydraulic arm allows waste to be removed from tight areas, and also does not require the manpower of tipping heavy waste into a skip with a wheelbarrow etc.

It’s also a great alternative to a skip because no permits are needed, and the added bonus is that no heavy lifting is required as the grab arm does all the hard work for you!

What Types of Materials Can Grab Lorries Remove?
Grab lorries are suitable for garden and building site waste. Some of the most common materials that we come across are: tarmac, brick, soil, concrete and green waste.

Most of the materials we use can be recycled so it’s a great way of making sure your waste makes the least amount of impact on the environment.

How Much Weight Can a Grab Lorry Carry?
8 wheeler grab lorries can carry an impressive 16 tonnes of waste. This allows substantial amounts of waste to be removed in one go, which means it’s quick and efficient and saves you time.

Can a Grab Lorry Arm Reach Over a Wall?
Yes – Provided the driver can position the grab lorry suitably, the hydraulic arm can be manoeuvred over a wall to pick up waste, with an 8-metre reach possible.

Where Should I Leave My Waste For it to be Removed?
Try and put your waste to be collected at the front of the property, in an accessible/open space, away from tree branches or cables. This will allow the grab hire operator to remove the waste as quickly as possible.
