While we can rave on and on about why nationwide skip hire is one of the best ways to manage construction site waste, there are times when a regular container just won't cut it. This is where grab lorry hire can help. These vehicles have a number of characteristics that makes them a great alternative to conventional skip hire.

Grab Lorry Hire: The Gentle Giants Of The Waste Management World

If you work for a construction company, or any firm that operates in this sector, you'll realise just how much rubbish can be created on work sites. Often, a skip can be an excellent way of holding this waste until it can be collected and disposed of.

However, there can be plenty of unexpected issues or occurrences related to the size and weight of skips, which makes them hard to remove. Another often overlooked issue is the fact that containers cannot be placed on the road without obtaining the correct permits from the local council. This can add extra time and money to your job; and we all know how important both those aspects are.

If this is the case, then relax. There are solutions out there such as grab lorry hire from Skippy Nationwide. We'll come and collect all the waste from your site with one of our lorries and you won't have to worry about making sure you've got the right permits or placed your container in the proper place.

What Actually Is A Grab Lorry?

A grab lorry is a basically what it sounds like: a lorry or truck with a spacious container on the back of it. This is combined with a hydraulic arm which reaches down and lifts the rubbish into the container. The arm can tackle any non-hazardous waste including rubbish created from construction work as well as inert waste such as that taken from large scale gardening projects.

The arm system is coupled with a grab bucket which, when combined with the arm, can scoop up a large amount of rubbish. In fact, your average grab lorry can carry away as much as two fully loaded skips!

So let's talk about the benefits of grab lorry hire:

  • The need to lift waste into a skip is eradicated.
  • You no longer have to worry about the size of skip you'll need.
  • Waste is taken on and off site with no hassle.
  • Street permits are a thing of the past.

These lorries are perfect for smaller construction sites. They can be easily manoeuvred and won't take up lots of space. As such, exits and entrances can be left clear for easy access. They can also be delivered and picked up a time to suit you.
