Short Term Truck Hire

Looking for a short term hire solution?

When hiring a truck, ute, bus or other short term vehicle, we are the experts that you need to talk to. With over 15 years servicing our local community with short term rentals, our large fleet of rental trucks and vehicles consists of latest model from popular vehicle brands that are in excellent condition.

Our vans, buses, utes, moving trucks (pans) and tippers are our most common short term hires. We offer technical advice to first time renters and recognise the additional support needed to support new or infrequent truck and vehicle rentals. We specialise in support for last minute moving bookings, last minute site bookings and can even provide drivers if required.

In addition to this many of our larger fleet vehicles are rented short term to fill seasonal business needs. Our refrigerated trucks and tautliners are high demand in summer and we work with our businesses to provide account support to manage their business needs. We encourage early bookings in peak season and can offer discounts for early bookings.

Choose the model of truck you drive

We understand when your vehicle is your business. Long-haul truck drivers, delivery drivers and charter bus drivers need to be comfortable in the driver’s seat. That’s why our near-new fleet reflects a range of the most popular vehicles on the road, so your replacement rental is often the same vehicle you’re used to driving.

Loyalty Discounts

Our large, reliable fleet means no matter how big or small your job might be, we can usually deliver. We offer competitive discounts for multi-vehicle rentals and for businesses who use our vehicles regularly. Contact us to find out how you can save on your truck hire today.

24-hour Emergency Service

Regardless of how long you’re renting a vehicle from us, we offer a 24-hour roadside assistance service. This means that no matter what time of the day or night, if your rental truck or bus breaks down, we’ll have a replacement to you in no time.
