Questions and answers

When hiring a machine on dry hire it will not include an operator to operate the machine. This rental option is cheaper than wet hire as you don’t need to pay for the operators labour. At Heavy Hire we don’t stock equipment that are challenging to operate, and all our machines can be operated by anyone who knows how to drive a car. Speak to us if you need an operator and we can put you in touch with our network of professional drivers.

When your mini-digger is collected or delivered the Auckland team member will  provide basic instruction on how to operate that particular make and model. However, we advise our customers that they need to test it out to see that they are comfortable driving it, or arrange for a test drive at one of our two locations.

When you make a booking with one of our North-Shore based Heavy Hire team members, they will arrange a pickup date and time or delivery date and time with you. A refundable deposit equal to the day hire rate is required before then or at pickup. We’ll provide you with insurance and terms for hire, and will need a copy of your drivers license to submit to our insurance provider. We require the digger to be returned to us/collected by us in the same working order as you received it, which means that it needs to be refueled and any clay and dirt would need to be washed off. Arrange for a dropoff time before 6:30 pm.

Yes we do. Although this is not part of our core service offering, we always aim to help our customers get the job done, and sometimes that means dropping off the digger on site. Speak to one of our team for a quote (calculated on distance of dropoff location) and we’ll take care of the rest.

Yes. You will receive the machine with a full tank of diesel and in a clean working order. Please refuel the digger at the end of hire. The digger must be cleaned and returned in the condition it arrived in. A charge will apply to all cleaning and refueling required.

Please notify us as soon as possible so we can arrange for a mechanic to assist you. In the event of a vehicle roll over please make sure you place your and others safety first. For injuries, turn the engine off and call 111. Phone us as soon as possible and report the incident.
