Grab Hire Derby & Nottingham – All You Need To Know


Ryan Colson’s Guide To Grab Hire:


Could your construction project benefit from grab hire in Derby, Nottingham or Leicester? Read this guide to learn all you need to know about grab hire and see how Colson Transport can help, the leading industry experts for waste removal in the East Midlands.


What Is Grab Hire?


Similar to skip hire, our grab lorry hire provides a cost effective way of removing substantial volumes of waste from a construction site. What differentiates it from a skip, is that each truck arrives with an operator who will load your waste and remove it, doing all the hard work for you.

Think of it like a skip on wheels, with a large hydraulic arm that will pick up your waste from wherever you leave it. With Colson Transport’s impressive fleet of 8 wheel grab trucks capable of carrying 16 tonnes, our grab hire service can collect a lot more waste in one go than a skip can!


Why would you choose grab hire over a skip?


Grab and skip hire both provide a similar service and both can be convenient in different circumstances. So, in what situations should you choose grab hire? To help you choose, we have put together a list of the benefits below:


  • Eliminates the need for the laborious task of having to load a skip yourself.
  • It is possible to remove waste in much larger quantities – perfect for big construction sites.
  • The hydraulic arm of a grab lorry is capable of reaching over walls and fences, making it ideal for collecting waste those hard to reach locations.
  • The waste is cleared in a very short space of time. Our operators are fully trained to act in a swift, professional manner in order to keep things moving with your project.


What about the delivery of aggregate materials?


Our grab lorries are perfectly suited for delivering aggregate materials to your construction site, such as topsoil, gravel, sand and many others. We can provide these in whichever quantity suits you, for domestic or commercial purposes.

Who uses our grab hire service?


Given the convenience and volume of waste our grab lorries can remove, it is an obvious choice for large, commercial construction sites. But can it also be useful for domestic purposes? If you find yourself in one of the following situations, grab hire can help:


  1. DIY home improvements –
    Home renovations such as redoing a driveway, building small extensions, or relaying the patio, can result in large amounts of waste. Our grab lorry service can offer a helping hand with the heavy lifting to remove your waste.
  2. Gardening –
    Gardening projects such as landscaping, installing ponds, laying artificial grass and many more, require aggregate materials. Our grab trucks can deliver gardening materials such as topsoil and gravel, and simultaneously remove unwanted waste from your site.
