How Much To Hire A Grab Lorry In Hampshire

Skip Hire Hampshire offers a reliable and affordable grab hire service to contractors, commercial and residential customers throughout Hampshire and the South East of England. Whether you need to dispose of waste, collect materials or deliver supplies, our grab lorry fleet is here to help.

In this landing page, we'll speak about the cost of hiring a grab lorry, what you need to know before hiring one, and the benefits of using a grab lorry over other waste disposal methods.

What is a Grab Lorry?

A grab lorry is a truck with a hydraulic arm and grabber bucket attached to the back of it. A skilled operator uses this arm to pick up materials such as soil, waste, or rubble from construction sites, or collect supplies like sand, gravel or topsoil, without the need for manual labor or a crane. The materials are then loaded into the back of the lorry for safe and efficient removal.

At Skip Hire Hampshire, we have a fleet of highly skilled operators that are experienced in providing grab hire services that are fast, efficient, and affordable. We can provide single or multiple loads, depending on your needs.

Benefits of Hiring a Grab Lorry

There are many benefits to hiring a grab lorry for waste removal or material collection. Here are just some of them:


Using a grab lorry can save you a significant amount of time compared to other waste disposal methods such as skip hire. With a skip, you'll need to load the materials yourself, arrange a permit if it's in a public area and wait for it to be collected. With a grab lorry, a skilled operator can load the waste, debris or materials in just a few minutes, saving you time to focus on other important tasks.


Using a grab lorry can save you money compared to other waste disposal methods such as skip hire, especially if you have a large volume of waste or materials that need moving. A grab lorry can typically carry more than a skip, meaning you won't need to hire multiple containers, which can be expensive. Additionally, you only pay for what is loaded into the lorry, unlike skips where you need to pay for the entire container, regardless of how full it is.


Grab lorries are extremely versatile and can access hard to reach areas, such as over walls or fences, thanks to their long-reaching hydraulic arm. This means they can quickly and easily collect waste or materials from construction sites, residential properties, or commercial premises.

Environmentally Friendly

Using a grab lorry for waste removal can be more environmentally friendly than other methods such as skip hire. With skips, you may need to have multiple containers for different types of waste, depending on your local council regulations, leading to more vehicles on the road and increased carbon emissions. With a grab lorry, all the waste is collected in a single trip, reducing the carbon footprint of the service.

What You Need to Know Before Hiring a Grab Lorry

Before hiring a grab lorry, there are a few things you should consider:


It's important to know what type of materials you need to be removed or collected before hiring a grab lorry. Certain materials may not be suitable for transport in a grab lorry, such as hazardous waste, asbestos or chemicals. It's always best to contact us first to discuss your requirements and ensure that we can provide a suitable service to meet your needs.


Make sure that the site where you need the grab lorry to operate has enough space for it to move with the arm fully extended. Additionally, there must be enough space for the lorry to park and access the site. It's important to consider whether the site has any obstacles like walls or fences that may make access difficult.


It's essential that the site is safe and secure before the grab lorry arrives. You should ensure that any potential hazards, such as loose debris or trip hazards, have been removed or marked out. Additionally, you should consider whether there are any overhead power lines or underground utilities that the grab lorry may come into contact with.
