Kennards Hire - Hire or Rent Equipment, Tools & Supplies


    People – our own and others – always come first.

    The Kennards Hire Foundation Was Launched in 2018 to help support disadvantaged young people and the environment

    The vision of the Kennards Hire Foundation is to make Australia and New Zealand better places for future generations by significantly improving the:

    • Ability of disadvantaged young people to be independent, self- sufficient contributors to society
    • Environment through conservation of land and species

    Whilst the Foundation does not accept unsolicited requests for donations, the Kennards Hire branch network continues to support and contribute to a wide variety of local charities, schools, sporting and community groups.

    You can find out more about the incredible charities we support across Australia and New Zealand below.

    People – our own and others – always come first

    Behind the scenes, across every area of our business, our branches and teams support every-day activities that put a genuine, fair dinkum face to our values.

    For us, it’s simply part of being a good neighbour and member of our local community. And being family-centric, we have a deep-seated belief that we should balance our continued growth and sustainability, with a positive social contribution.

    Branch Community Work

    Getting involved in our local communities is important to Kennards Hire. We’re committed to making our branch neighbourhoods stronger and more inclusive places to live, work and play.

    Every branch across our network contributes to local charities, schools, sporting and community groups, through sponsorship, gift vouchers, financial contributions, and free or reduced hire rates.

    Our teams are also always on hand to help if a natural disaster hits their area. They get behind moving equipment to and from disaster zones and supporting local recovery programs.

    Across our branch network, we support well over 1,000 community groups and activities each year. Check out some of the community events we have been delighted to support recently below or check out our local sponsorships page.
