Allways Hire is the home of Master Equipment. The Master Equipment New Product Development team creates innovative new equipment from an in-depth understanding of machines and how they’re used. Master Equipment simply offers a better way of doing things. That’s the Master Equipment difference.

Customers love the Master Sweeper with its “brush saver” feature, as it reduces the cost of brush section replacements. The Master Grader is compact and manoeuvrable and with its smart controls, it is easier to achieve a better grading finish on the job.
How do we innovate so well? It starts and ends with listening to our customers. If you have any ideas for innovation you would like to share with the Master Equipment team, we would love to hear from you.


When hiring a machine our standard terms and conditions apply, here are some of the key points summarised. For more indepth info, visit our FAQs page


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.


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.


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 8 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.



Health and Safety is an important part of what we do. That’s why we keep it front and centre at all times. We never lose sight of the fact that we’re hiring out powerful machines and equipment that can be dangerous if incorrectly operated. We treat all of our hire equipment with the respect it deserves. That starts with our high maintenance standards and includes making sure you always have the information you need to safely operate our machinery and equipment.



Our team is experienced with machinery and equipment and willing to give you as much – or as little – support as you need. We want to make it quick and easy for you to hire and pick up our equipment. One phone call makes it easy to make a booking or you can make an enquiry online. If you’re not sure what you need, we can recommend the best equipment for the job on hand.


In case you didn’t realise it – we love what we do. Our team is always keen to hear your ideas and feedback because we’re continuously exploring ways to make our service better for you. From monthly emails and special promotions; to sweet treats and morning tea shouts. We’re always coming up with new ways to let you know you’re important to us.

what our customers say

Mitchell Ewart

SWD Wastewater and Drainage

“We needed to start hiring a little bit of machinery that we didn’t already own and we came across Allways Hire and we’ve been using them ever since. We use Allways Hire for the machinery we don’t have or if there’s too much outlay to buy our own. We mainly hire the bigger diggers for installing our treatment plants and water tanks.”

“I’ve been a civil contractor for 18 years and have lots of experience dealing with hire companies. Allways Hire have given me a much more personal experience.
