Our grab lorries are all the same size at 8x4 ft, with a volume of 15 cubic metres, and a capability of carrying up to 20 tonnes of weight. That’s more than double the capacity of our largest skip.

We’ll simply arrive to load the waste material at an agreed time meaning you and your team and concentrate on work.

Tipper Grab or Grab Lorry, Which do you Need?

We can supply a tipper lorry or a grab lorry anywhere in Ramsgate from our fleet. If you require assistance loading the vehicle on your site we’ll send a grab lorry which comes with a built-in loading bucket so we can transfer waste onto our lorry to remove. If you already have machinery set up on-site capable of loading a vehicle, and if you want to do it yourself, we’ll provide you with a tipper to load the lorry.

If you’re not sure what type of lorry you need for the job send us a message. We’ll ask a few questions about your situation and give you recommendations and a quote.

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.

What’s the difference between a grab lorry and a skip?

Both grab lorries and skips are used for waste removal purposes. However, both provide different forms of flexibility.

Grab lorries are more flexible because they use a mechanical arm to pick up and load waste from various locations precisely. This versatility across different materials results in quicker collection times.

On the other hand, skip hire relies on fixed containers that are loaded either by hand or with machinery. While this method caters to specific types of waste, it lacks adaptability.

Choosing between the two options depends on your project's specific needs, the type of waste involved, and the level of convenience you're aiming for.

Whether you choose a skip or a grab lorry, call us at 01304 626364, and we'll help you get started.

How does a grab truck pick up the waste?

A grab lorry is fixed with an adaptable, hydraulic arm that ‘grabs’ waste by picking it up. There’s an open container on the back of a grab lorry which uses a bucket and the hydraulic arm to self-load all your waste needs.

The self-loading aspect of a grab truck means that manual labour is reduced and your waste can be grabbed and loaded in as little as half an hour!

This makes a grab lorry perfect for steep timeframes or businesses and construction sites that generate a large amount of regular waste.
