What You Need
to Know

When hiring a machine our standard terms and conditions apply, here are some of the key points summarised.

Competent operator and intended use

You need to be a competent operator and you need to advise us of the intended use of the machine. This allows us to recommend the correct size or type of machine for the task on hand.

Use and care

The hirer is responsible for the use and care of the machine whilst on hire. The machine is to be returned in the same condition and as clean as when it was supplied at the start. The machine is to be used in a safe manner for the intended purpose and within the machines capabilities in what it was designed for.

Hire Period

The hire period is from the time the machine leaves the yard and continues till the time it is returned. One days hire is up to 6 machine hours per day. Excess hours used will be calculated to match the number of days charged.


Insurance cover is required for any machine that goes out on hire. Either the hirer may provide their own insurance cover ( a copy of this is to be provided prior to the commencement of hire ) and take full responsibility for risk of damage or loss, or the hirer pays the 8% insurance premium and uses the insurance cover provided by Allways Hire. This decision needs to be made prior to the start of the hire period, not at the return of the machine. More insurance details and what is covered under the insurance tab. All repair costs up to the insurance excess amount of $2,500 – $10,000 is payable by the hirer regardless of the circumstances.
