Due to the continuous growth of the business, we are recruiting for experienced HGV Class 2 Drivers to help us deliver our Grab/Clamshell services on various projects across the Edinburgh area.

Grab Lorries provide a flexible and effective method for removing a variety of materials and waste from locations and sites where it may not be possible to use skips and waste containers. Grab Hire can also be used to deliver a range of materials in large quantities to site where conventional access is restricted. If you are clearing a large amount of waste from a site, a grab lorry can be an effective alternative to skip hire.
