When you have a construction site that needs clearing you only really have two options, skip hire, or grab hire. While skips are quite versatile and come in a range of size from small skips that will hold around 3 cubic yards to much larger ones that hold up to 40 cubic yards, when you have a significant amount of waste to clear the best option is to enlist the services of a grab hire company.
How Does Grab Hire Work?
Grab hire lorries have a hydraulic grabber arm attached to them to move, waste, rubble, topsoil and other such materials from a site. It is moved directly into the lorry and once full it is immediately taken away to be disposed of appropriately. This is what makes this option ideal if you have a large amount of waste to be removed or the use of a skip is unsuitable for your project.
Advantages of Grab Hire
Grab hire lorries are more efficient than skips when you take into consideration the time it takes, how much it costs and how much waste it can move in one go.
Remove more waste in less time – In most cases a grab lorry can deal with twice as much waste as a skip and if you can get an 8-wheeled grab lorry it will be able to remove the equivalent of 3 skip loads in one go which is much more convenient and it also saves time as you wouldn’t have to try and organise the delivery and collection of three skips!
It can also be quite time consuming trying to fill three skips, it makes no sense to manually move waste into a skip when a grab lorry can move it for you in a fraction of the time.
Versatile – Grab lorries are capable of moving all types of waste from topsoil to large pieces of concrete and even every day domestic waste for non-commercial customers.
All you have to do it keep all the waste in one place in a pile and the grab lorry will do the rest, all waste can be collected either loose or in skip bags.
Mobile – a skip is a permanent fixture on a site, however a grab lorry will be able to quickly enter the site, clear the waste and then leave which minimises disruption to the working day.
A permit isn’t required for a grab lorry to park on the road and it is also able to remove waste from areas that seem inaccessible thanks to its extended reach of the hydraulic arm.
