Frequently Asked Questions on Grab Hire

RJC Plant Services

One of our main service areas is grab hire. We supply muckaway and tipper hire services across Yorkshire,  direct to the public for domestic projects and to contractors including builders, landscapers, driveway specialists, housing developers and farmers. We’ve answered some of the main questions below that we often get asked about our grab hire. If there’s anything else you would like to know, please do get in touch.

• What is grab hire?

Grab hire is essentially the rental of an operated grab lorry which uses a hydraulic grab arm and bucket to collect and clear away waste. This removes the need for a skip and saving you time, effort and money.

• Why chose grab hire over skip hire? / Is a grab lorry cheaper than a skip?

If you are looking at a decent amount of muckaway and site clearance, especially of groundworks, soil, garden waste, bricks – grab hire is the cheaper and more efficient option.

This is because each lorry can hold twice the amount of waste you’d put into a standard use 8 yard skip, dramatically reducing building project costs, labour and time.

To compare, one standard 8 yard skip is charged around £200-£250 per week whereas our grab wagon can collect twice the amount of waste for around £220, saving a massive 50% on costs.

Our grab hire lorries can access hard to reach places, navigating over walls and fences and removes the hassle of finding space for a skip.

You can save additional time and money by combining the delivery of aggregates or topsoil at the same time!

• How much is grab hire?

The price of your muckaway service is generally per load removed, and per tonne for the delivery of any materials.

From only £150 we can collect up to 18 tonne of waste, even in the most awkward of places with our grab wagons.
