Skip Hire or Grab Hire – Which is better for What Kind of Job?

Both grab hire and skip hire remove waste from domestic and commercial sites safely and efficiently. Whilst grab Lorries specialize in removing large quantities of waste, the varying skip sizes available means you will easily find the perfect waste removal solution, whatever the scale of your project.

In addition to having a large capacity to hold waste, grab Lorries are also very agile vehicles, popular for their accessibility in otherwise unreachable places. As such, all of your waste can be removed from the roadside, with no need for permits.

It’s worth noting that accessibility may be more of an issue with skip hire, as a permit is usually required to keep the skip on the road, which can have varying approval times. Therefore, skips are usually better suited for locations where there is plenty of space to store them on site, rather than keeping them out on the road.

The Grab lorry needs at least 12ft in width for access. Also consider if there are any cables or low hanging trees over the area which the lorry will need to go as they need at least 6.5m in headroom to operate the crane. If access to site is off a single track road or if you are unsure about having sufficient side loading space, please call for advice or to arrange a visit to the site.

We can collect the following loads of materials in either a six or eight wheel grab lorry. Please note that you are strongly advised to ensure your waste is segregated to avoid additional charges being applied.
