Grab lorry or Skip Hire?

Grab LorryClearing out your garage? Tidying up your garden? Having building works done? Starting a long term project? Want to undertake your works at your own pace? Then the hire of a skip may best suit your needs.

A skip is the original waste containment & disposal system. A skip is a large opened topped container delivered to, & left at your premises for you to fill yourself in your own time, with collection at a time to suit you.

We are able to offer a range of skip sizes to suit your project. Where it is not possible for you to place the bin on your own property we can arrange the necessary local council permit for you.

Undertaking large scale building works? Digging footings? Having a major refurbishment? For larger loads & projects you should consider the hire of a grab lorry as they can offer an efficient & cost effective option for your waste removal. Our 8 wheel grab lorries will carry the equivalent of approximately 3 skip loads & may therefore prove more cost effective than ordering multiple skips.

The main benefit of a grab lorry is the fact that they are self-loading by means of the hydraulically operated extending loading crane with a clamshell bucket located on the body of the lorry behind the drivers cab.

Instead of loading a skip customers are able to excavate materials, locate them in a place accessible for our vehicle & sit back & let us do the rest.

Our grab lorries have a 7.5 metre reach from the side of the vehicle (the maximum reach available on a grab lorry). We are able to work over fences & walls; and around trees & lampposts thus making almost everywhere accessible. This exceptional accessibility & manoeuvrability can be especially beneficial on sites where space is restricted.

In most cases, our grab lorries can remove materials whilst remaining on the public highway avoiding the possibility of damage to driveways or other services. This proves essential in areas unsuitable for the deposit of a skip.

Our drivers are highly skilled & experienced individuals. Our grab lorry drivers are CPCS Certificate holders. We offer only the best equipment & operators allowing us to carry out works with maximum efficiency & minimum disruption.

We will of course use our knowledge & expertise to help you decide whether a skip or a grab lorry will best suit your needs.
