I’m a Custom home Builder in Wangaratta and have been dealing with WE Hire for more than 20 years.  We source Toilets, Scissor lifts, specialist tools , trailers and many other items from them regularly. The equipment is always in good order, well maintained and the service exceptionally helpful and friendly. I feel Matt and his team understand our needs and go the extra distance to make sure our projects get the gear we need quickly and without fuss. Established businesses like ours benefit from a network of supportive Suppliers and Sub Contractors. WE Hire’s a key part of that network, their cost efficient equipment & outstanding service helps us get the job done!

“We’ve been using WE Hire for on-site equipment and toilet hire for over 15 years. They are an excellent local business to deal with. The gear is always clean, serviced and fuelled. I know I can rely 100% on their equipment which means less down time and more productivity for me.”

Matt Knight, Knight’s Construction

Our company has been a customer of WE Hire for 18 months now. We have a site in Wangaratta and at Oaklands in New South Wales and we have hired equipment to use at both sites. We have hired equipment varying from brick saws, pressure washers, compactors and ditching equipment and every hire has been done easily, at a competitive price and in some cases at very short notice. Most importantly they are extremely flexible in arrangements for pick up and drop off, provide detailed instruction in the use of the equipment and advice on the best equipment for the job required. They are a great local business, I enjoy doing business with them and will continue to do so because it makes my job easier knowing the support I get from them.
