Miniquip Services – FAQs about our wet hire services
Wet hire is where we provide our late-model, regularly serviced equipment AND a qualified, experienced and reliable operator to ensure your job is done on time and to a high standard.
Our plant operators have National Accredited Competency Tickets to operate our fleet of equipment. As we pride ourselves on training and upskilling our workforce, many of our staff also hold a Certificate III in Civil Construction and/or various other competency certificates.
Our plant operators are based in Perth and cover the metropolitan area from Yanchep to Mandurah (and all areas in between!). We occasionally venture to WA’s regional areas to assist our customers to meet their project deadlines, but only for short periods as our local demand for operated plant hire services is always high!
Generally, we request one or two-days’ notice to book our equipment and operators, but you may be lucky enough to book us in on the same day you need us. We recommend you book your favourite operator with the equipment you require as soon as possible.

Miniquip Hire – FAQs about our dry hire services
Our entire fleet is available for hire from as little as one day until whenever you have finished your project! Plus, the longer you keep it, the more economical the cost is to hire.
Yes. The person who hires the equipment is responsible for the safe-keeping and insurance of the equipment hired.
We recommend that our business customers hold and supply us with a current Hired in Plant Insurance Certificate. This prevents you from being charged an additional 10% fee for excess reduction, should you nominate to use our Insurer.
Our hire rates are competitive and vary depending on the term of the hire. We offer daily, weekly and monthly options, with monthly hire being the most economical.
We are open from 7:00am to 5:00pm, Monday to Friday, excluding public holidays.
If you require equipment hire for the weekend, we offer a Friday afternoon collection and after-hours access to a return area to eliminate inconvenient Monday morning returns.
