Grab Hire

Quick & efficient way to clear away all unwanted materials without the need for skip hire permits and collections!


How does Grab Hire Work?

Wondering if grab hire is the right service for you? Let’s take a look!

Grab hire starts with the grab lorry. These lorries measure around 3 metres wide and sit just under 4 metres high. They have a hydraulic grab arm that extends to a length of nearly 8 metres – perfect for getting to hard-to-reach areas. And due to the size of the lorry, it’s important to ensure there’s enough space on-site for it to manoeuvre so that it can gather all materials that you want rid of.

Thanks to the sheer capacity of grab lorries, they’re able to make quick work of large amounts of waste, which is why they’re frequently used by gardeners, property developers, self-employed builders and homeowners undergoing renovations. 

Providing efficient and effective waste removal, 18 tonnes of waste can be removed all in one go, able to remove soil, concrete, hardcore, bricks, garden and tree waste – just to name a few! All materials can be collected loose or in bags – whatever is more convenient to you.

Grab hire really is all about offering ultimate quick and cost-effective results, so if you have a project that has a short turnaround time, turn to grab hire to get the job done.
