The Company was established in 2010, and has grown steadily across Civil, Engineering and other diverse industries. We remain focused on supplying quality equipment, all late model or purpose purchased to ensure the highest expectations are met.

We encourage our clients to utilise their own branding if required and offer personal pre-delivery/post delivery service.

group about

Project Dry Hire’s Equipment is carefully selected to ensure the latest in Technology and Safety is available to our clients. Through technology we remotely monitor all our equipment locations, usage and maintenance status. This ensures that both scheduled servicing and annual inspections are always kept current.

All equipment is issued with Manuals, Risk Assessments, User Guides and Prestart Logbooks, ready for work. Our skilled team can also provide Equipment Training if required.

The majority of our equipment is less than 5 years old. This helps with both Operator Safety and Reliability.

Project Dry Hire specialises in Providing the latest model equipment.

Our range of equipment includes Material Handling: Telehandlers, Forklifts & Staddle Carriers Cranes: Rough Terrain, Crawler and Franna Cranes and Site Handling: Tilt Tray, Prime Mover, Semi-Trailer & Helicopters.

We can source any Equipment required by our customers to specifically meet their Project needs. Our Private ownership and nimble size means we can compete on price with the Big Guys while providing new equipment, not 10 year old gear that breaks down!

We acknowledge that often project pricing occurs prior to execution and we are happy to work with clients during this planning phase. We offer customers the flexibility of short or long-term hire agreements.
