Grab lorry hire is utilised by contractors, businesses and individuals for a wide range of purposes. At Avon Material Supplies, we have a large fleet of modern grab lorries available for hire across Dorset and Hampshire, often with same day delivery.
Read on for everything you need to know about hiring a grab lorry.
What are grab lorries used for?
Our grab lorries are generally used for two reasons: bulk delivery of aggregates or waste collections.
With their large carrying capacity, grab lorries are ideal for delivering our recycled and primary aggregates to homes or construction sites. We can deliver a range of aggregates in bulk bags, some of our most popular include:
We are fully licenced waste carriers, meaning that we can collect almost all commonly produced waste types. Grab lorries are perfect for this, especially where access is limited due to the long grab reach. We can also collect bulk bags filled with waste, such as our own AMS skip bags or alternatives such as Hippo bags.
Waste types we can collect include:
- General mixed / household waste
- Construction waste
- Inert / rubble waste
- Green waste

How far can a grab lorry reach?
At AMS, our grab lorries have reaches of up to 5m, 7m or 8m, depending on the size of the vehicle you hire. We can advise on the most suitable of these options if you tell us a little bit more about your location and the amount of waste you’re looking to remove. Simply call 01202 579579.
How many tonnes can a grab lorry take?
As mentioned above, we have three different sizes of grab lorries, each with different carrying capacities. Our 4 wheel grab lorry can hold 8 tonnes, our 6 wheel grab lorry can hold 12 tonnes and our 8 wheel grab lorry can carry up to 16 tonnes.
Benefits of grab lorry hire
With their extendable arm reach, grab lorries can easily collect waste or deliver aggregates in areas where van or skip access is difficult. They can reach over walls and fences too.
If having a skip sitting on your premises for days or weeks doesn’t appeal, we can usually have a grab lorry over to you on the same day, Monday to Friday. Simply call us when you’re ready, and we will come and remove the waste for you, hassle free.
Our grab lorry hire costs are very cost effective, and we pride ourselves on being competitive providers in the BH postcode area. For a quote, please fill in the form on our grab lorry page, or call 01202 579579.
