Choosing a grab hire service comes with a range of benefits and can help your business massively. 


Grab hires are extremely efficient. Their large buckets are able to move large amounts of waste extremely quickly. Coupled with the large capacity of waste a grab lorry is able to hold results in a great amount of waste being moved, stored and/or removed in a shorter period of time with fewer trips to dispose of it. 

Cutting Costs

Keeping costs down on projects big and small is essential, especially with the current inflation rate. In the construction industry, recent world events have seen a soar in the cost of building materials, with the latest Building Materials and Components Statistics showing material prices were 25% higher in 2022 than they were in 2021. 

On average, a grab lorry can hold up to three times more waste than one load of a skip — not to mention the cost of skip permits! Grab lorries are able to hold and transport more significant amounts of waste than a skip would be able to. Saving you on skip hire costs, potentially needing the skip for longer, skip removal and skip permits!

Saving you Time

As well as the money saved with hiring a grab lorry, they will also save you a significant amount of time than other alternatives such as a skip. Grab hires mean that you don’t have to secure skip permits, it also means that you can directly transfer the waste to the lorry with the arm meaning you don’t need to worry about the extra step of loading or hauling the waste yourself! 

The faster the waste is cleared, the better for your project! 


There are many convenience factors that come into play when hiring a grab lorry. Whether you’re working on a large construction project or a smaller house project, it is common knowledge that skips are more often than not an inconvenience to you and the public to park a skip, often blocking paths, driveways and public roads. With grab hire, there is none of this, we are able to come pick up and take your waste in an extremely time-effective manner. 

Here at Braidwoods, we work alongside UKAS accredited laboratories, recycling centres and authorised landfill facilities. All of our drivers are also experienced and trained to the highest level, no project is too big for us.
