What are Grab Lorries?
Grab Lorries are 32t eight wheeler heavy goods vehicles fitted with a self-loading crane and grab bucket, grab lorry hire is normally charged by the load or by the day on day rate.


What are Grab Lorries used for?
Grab hire is used to remove excavated materials from, for example a driveway installation, excavated foundations / footings or brick and rubble from demolition work. We hire our trucks for commercial, domestic and utility work, we can also supply recycled and quarried aggregates. We can grab over walls and fencing and also deliver aggregates direct into rear gardens subject to access.


What Materials Can Your Grab Hire Service Remove?

Inert Waste – as per below:-
Earth, sand, soil, clay, concrete, brick and rubble, any mixture of the aforementioned.

We expect “inert waste” (earth, sand, soil, clay, concrete, brick and rubble) to be “clean” (this means free from all other waste types like cardboard, plastic, trees, bushes, wood, metal etc).


Green waste:-
Trees, Bushes, Plants.

Grab hire for green waste removal is not suitable for waste arising from land / site clearance work as normally the waste will contain general waste and large amounts of soil which the recyclers will rejected. For waste arising from land and site clearance please see general waste below.


General waste:-
Our grab lorries are able to collect and dispose of general waste and is done so on a tonnage rate. As with skips there are certain waste streams we are unable to mix with general waste. Please contact us for further information and prices.


Registered waste carrier.

Simply Recycling Ltd is a registered carrier of waste with the Environment Agency, we dispose of all your waste materials in accordance with all waste regulations and protocol. Our grab hire drivers are fully licensed, insured and highly experienced.

Please be aware the sizes stated on the image are the exact size of our grab lorries.


When assessing suitability please bear in mind the amount of room we need to manoeuvre our lorries.


If we are needed to turn into a gateway to access a site for example we would normally need to access from a two lane highway / road.


Please see the videos below to familiarise yourself how a grab lorry works and where the load needs to be to facilitate loading. We are unable to load over the cab or rear of the lorry.

Combine your aggregates delivery and muck away service all on one grab lorry.


Why not let us save you even more money? Our grab lorries can also deliver recycled and quarried aggregates to your site and can be combined to coincide with your muck-away requirements.


We can deliver aggregates in places where normal tipper lorries are unable to access, such as off-loading over walls or fences or directly to where it is to be used for example straight onto a driveway etc.


Once we have unloaded the aggregate we can proceed to re-load the grab lorry with inert spoil for disposal, this reduces vehicle movements, saves time and ultimately substantial savings will be made on costs.


Grab Hire.
Our grab lorries will often be seen around the Brownhills area on a daily basis, we take pride in our vehicles and endeavour to keep our lorries in a clean and presentable condition and subject the trucks to a rigorous maintenance regime.


Our grab drivers are professional long standing employees and you will always find our drivers to be pleasant, polite and courteous to other road users, cyclists and pedestrians.

  • Absolutely brilliant can't recommend this company any higher first class job at a very good price . Thanks a lot Joe you are one in a million it's a pitty all trades men aren't as dedicated as you. THANK YOU. David G


  • Great communication, was here the next day at the time they said they would be. Friendly driver & did a excellent job. All my soil was removed in no time at all. Would definitley recommend. Thanks again Lucie C


  • Had my back garden cleared and levelled by Simply Recycling . Very good service provided by the lads. Family run business that takes care and pride in their work. Will use again in the future. Thank You for all your help. Justin W


  • I got Simply Recycling to dig out our front and rear gardens ready for paving. The mini digger driver was fantastic and cleared so much more in 1 day than I could have. It was my first grab lorry too, so i wasn't sure how much soil it'd hold, but after seeing it I'd never use a skip for this type of job again. Great honest, hard working lads and all for a good price. A good find. Thanks. Mark C


  • We've just had a full lorry load of soil and rubble collected. SRL were on site within an hour of calling them for a quote. The site was left clear enough for the drive to be re-used without even needing to sweep it. Very helpful and diligent and as noted in other comments, the vehicles are well maintained. Would definitely 100% recommend this company to anyone, Joe and his son are spot on. Adam B


  • We have used Simply Recycling a number of times now over the past 18 months and recommended them to neighbours who have also had work carried out. Excellent standard of work, friendly and reasonable prices. Extremely pleased with the service on every occasion, hard working and down to earth, rare to find, thank you to Joe and the lads for providing a very good service. Rob T
Grab lorry tipping off screened topsoil in Birmingham, West Midlands.

Need to fill a void?


Why not register with us today and get put on our list for free fill media, all it will cost is the transport from where we have excavated to your site.


To give you an idea of cost of as dug fill media you would be looking at a small haulage charge of around £40.00 + VAT if we was working in close proximity to your location say within a mile or two.


This would be for as dug soil, we can provide screened topsoil but that does work out considerably more.


Please email: info@simply-recycling.co.uk to register your site / location.
