This guide was written to help with the questions you may have about grab hire services.

Why Use A Grab Hire Service?

With a grab hire truck removing large amounts of waste is easy. The trucks have large hydraulic arms that can reach over and scoop up waste and deposit it in the back of the vehicle. The process requires little manpower or heavy lifting and is often the fastest way to remove bulk waste and dispose of it efficiently. The grab arm on the vehicle can even reach over walls and pick up the waste to be removed, this is what makes this service very convenient and stress free.

If you’ve got smaller loads of waste to be removed you may want to consider skip hire. Skips are great for DIY, home improvements, some garden jobs or if you’re having a good old fashioned clear out. You can find out more about SCB Skip Hire services here.

What Dimensions & Capacity are Grab Hire Trucks?

Our 6 or 8 wheel grab hire trucks are perfect for heavy bulky waste or garden clearance jobs. These vehicles have some whopping monster features:

  • 8 wheel grab hire trucks weigh 16 tonnes when empty.
  • Our largest grab trucks can carry up to 16 tonnes or 15 cubic meters of waste, whichever comes first, and they are available for hire per load or on daily hire.
  • Our grab hire trucks are 3 meters wide.
  • Our grab hire trucks need 3.8m of headroom and 2m for the hydraulic arm. In total, you need 6m of space for them to operate.
  • Waste removal with our grab hire lorries can be completed in as little as 15 minutes from time of arrival. This depends of course on where the waste is located and how much waste needs to be removed.
  • Our grab hire lorry hydraulic arms can reach up to 8 meters with a double extension added.
