Grab trucks can carry tonnes of material, and they’re mobile for their weight and size, too. The trucks are best suited for pick-and-go types of jobs, causing minimal disruption wherever they go.
And thanks to their hydraulic arm, they can pick up materials over barriers. Grab trucks can easily drive to the side of a house, reach over the wall with the hydraulic arm, and carry bags of rubble, crushed concrete, and other materials to its back for transport.
This makes grab trucks are an excellent choice for waste removal and site clearance.
However, grab trucks aren’t an end-all-be-all solution for waste disposal. If you’re looking for grab hire in London, here are some of the essential things you need to know about grab trucks.
You have two options as far as grab truck sizes go - the four-wheel and the eight-wheel models. Both can work depending on your location and how much material or waste you need to remove.
The four-wheel variety can carry up to 10 tonnes of material. They are good enough for smaller work, like small DIY or residential renovation projects. Not to mention they’re lighter and can easily maneuver even with little space.
But if you are moving tonnes of material, our eight-wheel grab hire in London can handle the job.
When empty, the larger grab trucks can weigh as much as 16 tonnes depending on the model, and can weigh up to 32 tonnes when filled, meaning a huge waste removal capacity.
On the other hand, you will want to ensure you have enough space to accommodate a grab truck. The latter requires about 4 meters of headroom. But you also need to take the hydraulic arm into account, which needs about 2 meters.
Weight-wise, grab trucks are more than capable. However, they cannot carry all types of material. So before calling a grab hire in London, you will need to anticipate the type of waste your project will generate.
If you plan to hire a grab truck, know that they are designed for certain materials.
Some of the materials these trucks specialise in include:
Meanwhile, materials like batteries, asbestos, gas bottles, paint, tyres, and other hazardous materials need different disposal methods.
Grab truck companies try to reuse and recycle as much of the waste they collect as possible.
Here at GrabCo, when we collect waste from residential and commercial clients, it is thoroughly screened to pick out recyclable and reuseable materials. Doing so helps minimize the landfill costs of London and caters to the needs of eco-conscious customers.
A renovation, landscaping, or construction job can have unique needs.
DIY projects may not produce as much waste as a commercial building renovation. But smaller project work can take several weeks to complete, especially if you’re doing everything yourself.
In such cases, you can still hire a grab truck for disposal. Grabco can even provide you with bags to store rubbish for the time being. Simply call us for pick-up when necessary.
Grab trucks, however, shine best in commercial projects. The latter produces massive amounts of waste and requires quick removal. Both of which are a grab truck’s specialty.
