Do you Need a Tipper Grab or a Grab Lorry?

Whether you hire a tipper or a grab lorry will depend on the facilities at your worksite. If you can (and are happy to) load the vehicle yourself via equipment already installed at the worksite a tipper is the best option. We’ll then remove the waste to be recycled once the vehicle is full.

If you don’t have the necessary equipment or would prefer us to load the vehicle we’d recommend using a grab lorry. A grab lorry has a loading bucket attached to it which can be used to transfer material from the worksite to the lorry.

Skip sizes guide

Our skip sizes range from four to 12 cubic yards which provide a very cost-effective way to dispose of bulky waste including furniture and garden waste. For a skip that will be placed on the road, there will be an extra charge of £50.00 (per week) added for a permit from the council. If a permit is required, it takes 3 days to obtain permission from the local authority so factor this in when you’re planning the hire of your skip.

To help you decide which size skip would be best for you, please refer to our waste skip sizes guide pages. We’ve included skip sizes in yards and skip capacity m3 to give you a good idea of what will fit in each skip.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a grab lorry used for?

A grab lorry in Folkestone is a vehicle designed to collect and dispose of various materials such as soil, concrete, or landfill using the open container on the back of a grab lorry, which uses a bucket and hydraulic arm to self-load all your waste.

Grab lorries are used for waste removal, construction, landscaping, and demolition projects because they can easily handle large quantities of materials.

They’re perfect for those working with a tight timeframe, or for businesses and construction sites that generate a large amount of regular waste.

If you're unsure whether you need a grab lorry, contact us at TW Services and we'll provide the assistance you need.

Our fleet includes modern Scania 8x4 tippers, each equipped with a 15 m3 calibrated body. This setup enables them to transport and handle weights up to 20 tonnes!

We offer regular collections to ensure waste is cleared away promptly as it builds up. If you're considering hiring a grab lorry, get in contact with us to speak with one of our experts.

Do you need a permit to hire a grab lorry in Folkestone?

Picking a grab lorry over a skip comes with a major advantage – you don't need a permit. Skips often need a permit from your local council, but grab lorries don't.

This is because skips have the potential to disrupt local traffic and block public areas. In contrast, grab lorries are mobile and load swiftly, resulting in fewer disruptions and eliminating the need for a permit.
