Grab Hire Services

Our Grab Hire service is suitable for highway, large domestic projects, commercial or construction work where the disposal of bulk waste is required. It is a much quicker and cheaper alternative to the traditional skip hire. We have experience grab lorry drivers who work safely and efficiently to load and collect your waste. Most grab lorries are 8-wheelers and hold, on average, 16 tons. The smaller the grab lorry, the less tonnage will be removed. The crane has the ability to reach over walls, fences or fairly small obstructions. They can remove large quantities of non-hazardous or hazardous materials the likes of hardcore, limestone, sand and ballast, asbestos, crushed concrete, green waste, top soil and scalping. Give us a call today for a competitive quote for a quick and cost-effective solution for your waste removal. Our dedicated team will advise you if your waste is suitable for grab lorry removal.

8 things you need to know about Grab Hire…

What to know about Grab Hire?

  1. Generally, when they’re empty, grab lorries weigh some 16 tonnes.
  2. The law allows them to carry as much as 16 tonnes of waste when on the road. So this equates to the vehicle having a maximum authorised mass of 32 tonnes.
  3. This means that, depending on the type of material being carried, a grab lorry tends to be able to carry between 12 and 15 cubic metres of waste.
  4. There are other vital statistics to consider, too, before you decide to hire a grab lorry.
  5. Grab lorries tend to be some three metres wide, with an extra 25cm minimum clearance typically being recommended for either side. This means that site access must be at least 3.5mwide before you can use a grab lorry.
  6. You must also take the available headroom into account. You need at least 3.8 metres.
  7. In addition, you must add in an extra two metres of headroom (that is, 5.8 metres in total) to allow for the vehicle’s crane to operate.
  8. Usually, a grab lorry can be loaded in between 15 and 30 minutes.

Top service
My wife booked a van to collect some building/garden rubbish, we got a phone call to let us know when they were 20 minutes away. Tom and Mo were brilliant, even the bits I thought would be to large or heavy were taken before I knew it, nothing was too much trouble and all done with a smile, will definitely use Wast King in the future.
