Collection & Delivery Information
Our charges for delivery and pick-up vary depending on the transport requirements of the item hired, your distance from the nearest branch and the time of delivery. Any delivery amount displayed is ‘one-way’ and for one load only. If multiple vehicles are required our branch will contact you prior to confirm so there are no hidden or unexpected costs to you. We do have a minimum hire period of 1 day on deliveries, four hours isn't quite long enough for our drivers to reasonably turn around and get back out to you.
Our deliveries are normally made during trading hours, Monday till Saturday afternoon. However, if you need a delivery outside of these times please see our Special Deliveries section.
Our drivers are our family and making sure they get home to their family safe each day is our priority. We ask you to ensure there is a safe area for our driver to unload, demonstrate the equipment and complete the paperwork.
Generally, we aim to deliver within a 2 hour window based on the expected start time set on the booking.
Sometimes, deliveries need to be quoted and do not fit into a normal ‘scenario’. These may include:
- After-hours deliveries
- Deliveries on a Sunday
- Delivery outside our standard delivery distance (25kms for metro, 50kms for regional and specialist branches)
- Special/large equipment delivery
Don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything other than continue to place your online booking. You will be automatically asked to complete a ‘Hire Request’. Once received, our branch will call or email you and provide you with a quote either as soon as the branch receives the order or the next day if you book after hours.
If you are still unsure, please contact your branch or call 135 135 in Australia and 0800 470 370 in New Zealand.
Requesting a Pick-Up
Our equipment remains on hire, and therefore chargeable, until it is off hired and a valid Customer Pick Up number issued. To "off hire" equipment please call your hiring branch (or 135 135 AUS / 0800 470 370 NZ) and make sure you obtain a Customer Pick Up number. This will immediately stop the billing and issue the pick-up request.
We aim to complete pick up within a few hours of "off hire", however this is not always possible. We will inform you of estimated pick up date/time.
You must return the equipment to us when due back at your expense unless you obtain a Customer Pick Up number- see our Hire Contract Conditions.
Ensure all the below conditions are met to avoid any extra charge. We also request you speak to our staff if you have any concerns regarding the safe pickup of our equipment before the equipment is off hired.
At the time of "off hire", the use of the equipment must have ceased.
Please always ensure there is a safe area for our driver to load the equipment and complete the paperwork.
If our equipment required assembly (eg scaffold, temporary fencing etc) after delivery, it should be disassembled ready for transport when our driver arrives for pick up or hire continues.
Our vehicles will need to have access and egress for any equipment that needs to be loaded by lifting devices and tilt trays.
Equipment to be grouped together where it was dropped off, if there are any special circumstances please inform our staff when you call them for off hiring.
