Kennards Hire - Hire or Rent Equipment, Tools & Supplies


    Simply phone through to one of our branches, contact us on 0800 470 370, email us at And if that doesn't appeal to you, post on our social media accounts (icons at the bottom of the screen)! We’ve got a fair few ways for you to get in touch with us if you have any questions.

    If you'd like to lodge a complaint, an email is the best method of getting in touch with us. We take complaints very seriously, so please be as detailed as possible in your email to us so we can take a good look at the problem. Email us at

    Caught us outside of business hours? You’ll want to take a look at the times we’re open. These are based on the branch, so take a look at our branch finder

    We most likely are! We’re often looking for top performers who want to go the extra mile for our team and our customers. If you'd like to work with us, see our careers section. 

    These aren’t some state secret. If you want to find out exactly what specialist branches are, click here. Contact us on any of the options above if you still have any questions.

    While we were the same business in the past, Kennards Self Storage is now only affiliated with us by name. We know it can be pretty confusing, just remember to attach ‘Hire’ to the end of the title!

    We’ve never wanted to be the biggest hire company, just the best! We believe in no hidden extras and a fair dinkum approach to pricing. Our rates include a few other services that we reckon are really useful. We’ll always include GST and basic damage waiver in our rates, as well as little extras we think make your job easy. Where there are optional items or additional charges we’ll make sure these are well understood before you hire. It's these additional services that set us apart and are why our customers continue to hire from us – and why you should too!

    Privacy is really important to us, and that’s why we try and keep our policy constantly up to date. If you want to find out any more about our policy, read more here.

    If you’ve run into problems, call your hiring branch or 135 135. We take problems and faults seriously, and we want to hear about them as soon as they happen.

    We're constantly adding new equipment to our range, so if you don't find what you're looking for then please get in touch via the options listed above.

    If your local or preferred branch doesn't have equipment available for hire, we'll work with our other branches to source it. We’ll always try to get you the equipment you’re after, without delay.
