What is Grab Hire?


Grab hire, also known as grab lorry hire or grab truck hire, refers to the act of renting a tipper grabber vehicle for industrial use. 

As their name suggests, tipper grabbers are vehicles which have been modified in order for them to pick up large amounts of material. Once that material has been picked up, it can then be transported to its intended destination. Finally, that material is then tipped out – where it can then be used or discarded as appropriate.

Tipper Grab Hire Vs Skip Hire

As such, a tipper grab hire can be thought of as an evolution of skip hire. However, whereas skip hire is a relatively analogue solution to the problems, tipper grab hire offers a fully-adaptable solution. 

Tipper grab hire vehicles can go places a skip can’t go, and they can remove waste in much larger quantities and far faster than traditional skips do. This makes tipper grab trucks far more adaptable than skips – as skips require vehicles to move from site to site and can only be in place for a short period of time. As a result of this adaptability, tipper grabber are far more adaptable than a skip, making it ideal for any job which must be completed quickly and efficiently. 

Where Would You Use a Tipper Grabber?

Typically, you’ll see tipper grabbers used in industrial and construction settings – where there is a large amount of waste of construction material which has to be transported.
