Dry Hire


Dry hire is the term used in the hire and rental industry that refers to the owner of the equipment, in our case mini excavators and or tipper trucks, hiring it to a customer on the basis that they will operate the equipment themselves.

This can be the most cost effective solution in many cases but not always. If you have never operated an excavator and have a job that is not straight forward for example, excavating an old garden bed that is on level ground with very open access and has no services (water, gas or electrical piping) near it then you may be better off having us in to take care of the job for you. Sometimes taking the cheapest option in the beginning will cost you more in the long run.

That said many of our customers are first timers and are willing to take on the challenge of operating one of our mini excavators. Our machines are simple to use and after our 10 minute operation and safety briefing you will be set to go.
