Grab Lorry Hire

We are OPEN for business during this Covid-19 shut down period. Some service levels may be reduced in some areas but we are working as hard as ever!

What is a Grab Lorry?

Grab lorries are specially designed to 'grab' and transport large volumes of waste and are often used in the construction industry to aid large projects to collect and clearbulk waste. The hydraulic grab arm and bucket allows the grab lorry to collect waste over fences, walls or inaccessible areas and efficiently transport off site.

Grab Lorry Hire

Skip hire vs Grab lorry hire

The first advantage with a grab lorry is no manual work is required. Site Solutions will arrange a local grab lorry hire service in your area with the best price. Along with hiring the grab lorry, you hire the labour required to collect and transport too; all achieved with one phone call!

The second advantage is the amount of waste it can hold. The largest grab lorry weighs around 16 tonnes empty and they can carry an additional 16 tonnes of waste, the equivalent to three 6yard skips. Hiring one grab lorry for bulk waste is also cheaper than hiring three skips!

Site Solutions operates nationwide, we will arrange grab lorry hire to anywhere you are in the country, it will arrive at a suitable time for you and collect and dispose.

Other grab sizes are available and can be hired depending on the amount of waste required for collection and availability in the area you require it:

  • 4 Wheel Grab: can collect up to 8 tonnes
  • 6 Wheel Grab: can collect up to 12 tonnes
  • 8 Wheel Grab: can collect up to 16 tonnes

What waste can a grab take?

Building materials
Inert waste
General recycling waste
The only materials Grabs cannot collect are hazardous, such as batteries, asbestos etc.
