At Rentco, our business model is based on our presence in major regional and capital cities across mainland Australia. We operate a diverse fleet of specialised commercial vehicles which are serviced and maintained in-house by our team of highly qualified and experienced technicians. We employ people with extensive product knowledge who pride themselves on the standard of their work.
Short or long term solutions
We understand that flexibility is the key to good business. Hiring avoids expensive downtime and the long term financial commitment or capital outlay for specialised equipment. Additionally, vehicle hire allows our clients to instantly increase the size of their fleet when they need to which is efficient and effective as you simply return the vehicle when you have no work for it.
Whether it’s needed for a day, a week or long term hire, our customers love the comfort, flexibility and reliability of our duel cab Nissan Navara 4x4 turbo diesel utilities. Our fleet is equally at home transporting plant and equipment from site to site or they’re couriering in the Metro area. They’re also mine site compliant, equipped with UHF Radio, bull bars, for front end protection, a battery isolator and mine site specification lights and whip aerial as standard.
We’re all about safety. When you hire a Rentco ute, you get a vehicle fitted with internal ROPS, a safety feature designed to protect equipment and passengers from injuries in the event of vehicle overturn or rollovers. Our hire utes can seat up to 5 passengers safely and have undergone a multipoint safety check making them work ready and ready to work!
The Rentco fleet has over 200 prime movers and a diverse variety of hire trucks which are suited to domestic, commercial, agricultural and industrial purposes. We can supply prime movers that are fuel spec’ compliant for hazardous goods and for applications such as mining or off-road. We can also provide water carting equipment
We love the Volvo reputation for reliability and efficiency. This is why Volvo’s are integrated into our truck hire fleet. Our prime movers are predominantly Volvo, with a selection of power alternatives ranging from 400 to 600 hp. For heavy haul and off-road applications, especially for the mining and earthmoving industries, Rentco can also supply Kenworth or Western Star prime movers up to a road train rating at 130 tonnes.
When you need to transport your work crew to or from or around site, our mine spec 12 seater mini bus is the right choice for getting your people safely to where they need to be. Our specialised fleet is available throughout Australia including some regional centres and remote mining locations.
Because mine sites are some of the toughest workplaces in the world, we understand that any vehicles operating onsite have to be equally tough. This is why we have a fleet of bus hire vehicles that meet the Mine Spec requirements for operating in diverse mine site conditions.
- Mine-spec vehicles are available to hire with the following options:
- Engineered Roll Over Protection Systems;
- Load Guards;
- Starter Motor Isolation/Jump Start Receptacle Kits;
- High Lights;
- Reverse Alarms;
- UHF and Digital Radios;

We can supply hire trailer solutions that include curtain-siders, flat tops, tipping skels, low loaders and semi-tippers.
We specialise in trailer hire for containers with a selection of straddle carrier skel trailers from top quality manufacturers such as HAMMAR and Steelbro.
We recently purchased the Freighter drop deck semi’s and skel Outback trailers to assist transport companies that need to cart bulky and cumbersome freight items across harsh and often unforgiving roads regional and remote Australia. This gear is available on short term or long term lease at very favourable rates. When you need something built tough enough to cope, talk to us about our Freighter Outback range.
The frames are designed for 100% off road use and, in most cases, has a frame rating of up to 44 tonnes on semi-trailers. Available in:

- drop deck semi; and

When it comes to truck hire, it doesn’t matter whether you’re a small business with lots of deliveries or maybe you need a moving truck that can be driven on a C class licence, a quad road-train or any setup in between. Whatever your truck and trailer hire needs are, we’ve got you covered.
