Flexible arm

A stand-out feature of a grab lorry is the long and versatile arm that comes with it, this enables the lorry to lift heavy items that can be in hard-to-reach areas. Save yourself the potential risk of injury and leave it to the lorry to handle the large and weighty items.

Cheaper than skips

Due to the volumes of waste a grab lorry can take, it can work out as a more cost-effective waste management method. As opposed to ordering multiple skips, you can instruct a grab lorry in the West Midlands and clear all your waste in one go.

Project management

Having access to a grab lorry can help a project move along or finish up nicely, as you can clear the waste and materials as you go. This is particularly helpful in the construction industry when there are deadlines to meet and strict timelines to stick to, to avoid hindering the entire project.
