Popular forms of waste collection, including grab lorry hire.
When it comes to a site clearance project, there are a number of methods that you can choose from to assist with your waste disposal. This article will explain what grab lorry hire is and the differences between the various other popular forms of waste collection.
Depending on the amount of waste you are clearing, any of the following will be suitable for your project.
What is grab lorry hire?
Whilst most people only conceive grab lorries to be used for large clearance tasks, they are in fact very versatile, especially when AMS offer 4, 6 & 8 wheeler grab lorries for hire.
A primary benefit of using grab lorry hire is that it is a quick and straightforward process. The lorry visits your site, collects the waste using an extendable arm, places it on the back of the lorry and then leaves to safely transport the waste to a suitable disposal facility.
The grab arms allow waste to be collected from the road and over obstacles, meaning if there is limited access at your site a grab lorry will still be able clear your waste (*if it’s located correctly)!
In addition to being able to collect loose waste, grab lorries can also easily collect filled skip bags. Therefore, sites with various waste streams can separate and dispose of their waste using multiple skip bags. To learn more about skips bags in Bournemouth please visit: easy-bag.co.uk
Carrying capacity of our grab lorries:
- 4 wheel grab – up to 8 tonnes
- 6 wheel grab – up to 12 tonnes
- 8 wheel grab – up to 16 tonnes
*Please note, the waste material required to be ‘grabbed’ away should be placed within the reach area of the grab arm, located where there is adequate space for the vehicle to work and away from any overhead cables. For further guidance, please contact our team.

Tipper truck hire
Using a tipper truck is less flexible than a grab lorry due to not having a grab arm. If you choose a tipper truck, you must have the appropriate machinery on-site to load waste onto the truck.
For large site clearance projects on more extensive sites, tipper trucks are often the number one choice as they offer a fast turnaround and are able to carry more waste than the comparable size of grab lorry.
Our tipper trucks are either 6 or 8 wheelers, being able to transport 15 tonnes and 19.5 tonnes of material respectively.
It’s good to know… Our large tipper fleet is available to hire on a ‘by request’ basis or as part of a scheduled waste management / haulage service. AMS’s tippers operate extensively throughout Dorset and West Hampshire and can be hired by individuals, businesses and contractors.
Traditionally, skips are the first thought when people are considering a clearance project. If your skip is going to be positioned on a road or footpath, you must ensure that you have the necessary council permit and safety equipment in place e.g. lights and cones.
Skips range from 2-12 yards in size, making them a flexible waste management solution that people often choose for modest sized waste clearance projects e.g. house clearances, kitchen fit outs etc.
