Grab lorries: An alternative to skip hire

  • 28 Oct 2015

Whether for a construction company, commercial business, or even a homeowner; skip hire is often the common choice when it comes to the disposing of waste from a project. Grabloader has highlighted reasons why hiring a one of its grab lorries may be a more beneficial choice.

Permits and space

When hiring a skip, the local council require a permit to be submitted due to the land used to keep the skip on. Although these permits are often approved, they call for a lot of organisation and planning in advance – as well as the additional cost.

To use a grab lorry however, no permit is required. Grabloader lorries will arrive at a specified time to collect all of the waste, before transporting it to the closest tip or landfill used by the company.

In addition, grab lorries do not need to park in a driveway or block a public road; allowing for a quick and easy solution.

Easy access

Grab lorries are designed to collect all waste in one go. It’s unique grab function can easily reach rubbish in awkward places, no matter how heavy or where it is placed.

Most grab lorries collect any type of waste from 2 to 15 cubic yards, allowing the project at hand to be the main focus of attention.

Cost efficiency

On average, a pick up by a grab lorry takes a total of 20 minutes; a significant difference to the days it takes to manoeuvre a skip.

Grab lorries will remove all waste from a site, no matter how many trips need to be made, ensuring that all waste is disposed of. Mixed loads are also collected, meaning that organising through and separating waste is an unnecessary task.

With no need for a permit and at cheaper rates than a skip, grab hire lorries are a most cost effective and efficient solution.

Significant time, effort and financial savings can be made by exploring Grabloaders as an option.

Grab hire lorries are superior to standardised skips, as they provide you with large, open storage space for runoff construction materials, garden waste and debris you may wish to remove from your working environment and dispose of in line with legal requirements.
