Essential Reasons Why You May Need To Hire A Grab Lorry

We all rely on large vans, trucks and lorries to manoeuvre heavy goods. Whether we’re aware of it or not, these vehicles form an integral part of our economy, whether they’re used to deliver food to supermarkets or collect waste from our homes. A vital tool for numerous industries, large vehicles enable the transportation of all kinds of cargo across the country and beyond.

A grab lorry is a particular type of large vehicle that consists of a grab arm powered by hydraulics. This arm can collect refuse and dispense it into the lorry’s bucket, which may have a tipper function. These features allow the vehicle to collect refuse from inaccessible areas and tight spaces, making it an invaluable model for a range of uses.

Read on for a look at some of the top reasons why you may need to hire a grab lorry for your project.

Soil Removal

One of the primary functions of a grab lorry on both domestic and commercial sites is the removal of waste soil and related materials. Often if foundations are dug or a site is repurposed, there will be waste soil to be removed, where this vehicle’s grab arm is the perfect tool for the job.

Green Waste Clearance

Green waste can be bulky, where a site clearance project can quickly result in a build up of materials to be removed. A grab lorry can easily scoop up large quantities of green waste, which can then be disposed of sustainably. The grab arm helps to sort waste into appropriate bags, or it can be collected loose and dispensed at a later time.

Aggregate Deliveries

As well as collecting materials, grab lorries can also be useful for delivering them. This is especially true for aggregate deliveries, where these materials often require a precise grab arm for proper unloading. The large payload of grab lorries means that these resources can be transported in sizable quantities for optimal project efficiency.


Grab lorries can be a useful tool for a variety of landscaping projects, on both a domestic and a commercial scale. This is because the grab arm and bucket can be used in tandem for the onsite relocation of materials, where these can be moved loose or in bags.
