Why a grab hire service could be right for you

Grab trucks are perfect for carrying a wide range of materials in copious amounts. From muck away and concrete to soil and general rubbish, grab hire is an ideal waste management solution and highly popular with commercial clients.

There’ll be no need to take several trips to your local waste recycling or transfer station, as grab hire is ideal for taking heavy, considerable amounts of waste in one trip. Grab hire trucks are able to take sand, gravel and even topsoil. These materials can be taken loose or in bags for your ultimate convenience. 

On average, grab hire trucks can take 18 tonnes of waste, making it an extremely cost effective alternative to hiring many skips consecutively or making unnecessary trips to the tip.

Who would need a grab hire service?

There are many people who may require a grab hire service, including:

Home renovation enthusiasts – home improvements are sometimes a necessity for many houses, especially for first time buyers or house developers. Where some DIY projects may be relatively small and would only require a simple domestic skip hire service, other projects may be done on a larger scale, and will require the help of a grab hire lorry. But fear not; a grab hire service will be able to handle all the heavy lifting for you, minimising the risk of injury.

Gardeners – depending on the scale of the project, a gardener would benefit highly from a grab hire service. Soil, sand, gravel and other garden waste materials can be extremely heavy in copious amounts, but this is where you’ll be able to count on a grab hire lorry. Don’t unnecessarily strain yourself, make use of our grab hire service today for quick and easy disposal.

Property developers – similarly to home renovation enthusiasts, property developers will also be able to make full use of a grab hire service. Homes which need serious work will generate excessive amounts of waste, and grab hire is the most suitable, cost effective way of disposing of it all. 

Self-employed – those with their own labour-intensive businesses will find a grab hire service exceptionally useful. It will cut down on both costs and time, ensuring employees are kept busy laying patios for example, instead of loading a skip or driving to and from the tip multiple times a day. Grab hire lorries are able to take a wide range of different waste types, so all labour-intensive, hands-on businesses will be able to take advantage of a grab hire service.

Waste ideal for grab hire

Grab hire lorries are permitted to take a wide range of different waste materials, waste that can be taken and recycled include:

  • Earth/soil
  • Concrete bricks
  • Hardcore and topsoil
  • Bricks
  • Garden and tree waste
  • General non-hazardous waste

Waste that can be taken but will most likely be sent to a licensed waste disposal site includes:

  • General waste
  • Rubble
  • Hazardous waste

Waste not suitable for grab hire includes:

  • Asbestos
  • Paint
  • Oil
  • Batteries
  • Tyres
  • Some hazardous waste
  • Gas bottles

How big is a grab lorry?

Generally, grab lorries which are used for the collection and transportation of large quantities of waste are approximately 3 metres wide. Therefore, it’s important that a grab hire lorry is granted easy access and as a sufficient clearance all the way around. On average, a grab hire lorry sits at 3.8 metres high and will be around 7.8 metres long.

How long will a grab lorry take to load?

This is entirely dependent on the amount of waste you have and where it is at the point of collection. If you have an average amount of waste, and it’s set out neatly and ready for transferring onto the lorry, it could take around 15-20 minutes to fully load the vehicle. It’s always better to ask one of our knowledgeable professionals, in case you’re unsure.

How much waste can a grab lorry handle?

On average, an empty grab lorry will weigh around 16 tonnes. The maximum authorised mass of a grab hire lorry is 32 tonnes, subsequently enabling them to carry 16 tonnes of waste. This gives a volumetric equivalent of between 12 and 15 cubic metres, depending on the type of waste material.

How far can the hydraulic arm reach?

With a double extension attached, the arm will be able to reach up to 8 metres in length. This is generally more than is required for those utilising grab hire services in general. 

Where should I leave my waste for grab hire?

This is crucial to the efficiency of its removal. It must be left in an open space with plenty of clearance around each side. It should be situated away from low hanging trees or foliage and should be significantly clear of all overhead cables. The driver should then be able to pull up alongside the waste, ready for collection.
