AMS 8 wheel grab truck

All you need to know about grab truck hire in Bournemouth and Poole

As the operator of one of the largest grab truck fleets in Dorset, we are busy every day grabbing waste in Poole, Bournemouth and throughout the BH postcode areas.

Our choice of grab trucks allows us to service businesses, construction sites and residential properties of most sizes.

Choosing the correct grab truck hire service, what to consider?

When it comes to grab lorry hire, it’s essential to choose the correct sized vehicle because waste collections are charged on a per load basis. Therefore hiring a larger truck than what is required will simply cost you more money.

Carrying capacity – how much waste do you need collecting?

The approximate carrying capacities of our grabs are as follows:

  • 4 wheel – carrying capacity up to 8 tonnes
  • 6 wheel – carrying capacity up to 12 tonnes
  • 8 wheel – carrying capacity up to 16 tonnes

Placement of the waste to be grabbed?

For a waste pile to be safely removed it must be situated in a position the chosen grab lorry can reach and ideally in a location clear of any overhead obstacles. If you unsure what space our grab trucks require to operate in, please call our friendly transport team on 01202 579579.

What are the reaches of our grab lorries?

  • 4 wheeler – approximately 7 metres reach
  • 6 wheeler – approximately 5 metres reach when alongside material or waste
  • 8 wheeler – approximately 12 metres reach

Waste being grabbed?

Mixed site, household or commercial waste are amongst the most expensive waste types to have collected. Whereas clean inert materials, such as broken concrete, are the least expensive. We, therefore, advise our customers to segregate their waste if possible because it will not only save them money but will aid us when recycling the materials.

To help make the process of segregation as simple as possible, we can provide separate skips and skip bags to manage waste you don’t wish to have grabbed.  

The waste streams we commonly collect using our grab lorries are:

  • Construction and demolition waste
  • Mixed, general household waste
  • Green / garden waste
  • Inert waste
  • Concrete / hardcore
