Here we aim to answer some common questions to save you some time.

If you can’t find what you’re looking for, you can always drop us a line. We’ll do our best to answer any questions and get you on track for your job at hand : )


  1. Use our online booking system, or phone or email us and tell us what equipment you’re after.
  2. As part of our hire process we require three forms of ID upon pickup for first time hirers. The first form of I.D. is a valid Australian driver’s license, passport or proof of age card. The second form of I.D. is  a valid bank card under the same name. The third form of I.D. can be a Medicare, concession card or BUPA card.
  3. On every hire under $150 payment must be made before the equipment is given to you. Payment is also required on pickup for all first time hirers.
  4. We will get you to sign our Hire Conditions which you can download and view here. In short these say that you are insured anytime you hire from us, but there is a $500 excess payable by you if something goes wrong and there are some things you’re not covered for which are all listed in this document.
  5. We’ll issue you with a receipt!

1 day hire

2 day hire
Pick up anytime after 2pm on the first day and return anytime before 10am on the fourth day.

Unfortunately not. All deliveries require a direct signature, although we do deliver to workplaces.

If any equipment is damaged, please let us know as soon as you can. We’ll work the rest out from there!
