Gravel


Harris Grab Services provide gravel deliveries to commercial and domestic construction and landscaping projects across the Sussex areaAs a local supplier of gravel, we provide gravel in 1 tonne increments of either 10mm, 20mm & 40mm gravel.

The grab trucks used for our deliveries can deliver a maximum load of 17 tonnes of gravel at once. This makes our gravel delivery service perfect for industrial scale projects requiring large amount of gravel to be delivered quickly.

We are based in Shoreham, West Sussex but can deliver across the Sussex area and beyond. We are flexible and if needed, we can facilitate early morning or late evening gravel deliveries to work around your projects schedule.

With over a decade of experience in the aggregates delivery industry, we have built a great reputation with several local construction companies who now regularly use us for their gravel deliveries. These partnerships have been so successful that we now receive over 70% of our new business from word-of-mouth recommendations.

What is Gravel?

What is Gravel?


Gravel refers to a collection of loose fragments of rocks. It is a construction aggregate formed by the natural erosion of larger rocks. It is then extracted from quarries know as gravel pits where it separated from sand using a gravel separator. Both sand and gravel are used in the production of concrete. 

Gravel is used worldwide as a construction material but in Sussex we possess particularly rich deposits of gravel. Particles of gravel generally range in size from 2mm to 60mm and come in a variety of textures and colours. Gravel is often combined with pebbles to make a type of render referred to as pebbledash – this is often seen on the exterior of buildings. 

Due to its surface and density, gravel is particularly resistant to water erosion. It has several landscaping applications, being commonly seen in driveways or used in place of grass for a low maintenance garden. It can also be mixed with asphalt for construction of roads.

FAQs


Gravel is one of the most widely used construction materials. It is commonly used in the construction of roads and driveways and can be combined with sand to create concrete.

Though similar, Gravel is created by the natural process of erosion and then gathered from a gravel pit. Crushed stone is created by the industrial crushing an existing larger stone such as limestone or granite.

We are able to fulfil 80% of our orders in 24 hours or less with some deliveries completed in less than 12 hours. Get in touch with our team to find out more.
