What Our Customers Have to say
These guys have gotten us out of a jam many times, always with a great attitude. They give very useful advice and try their hardest to make things work for you - case in point, I hired a 1.7t excavator yesterday on short notice, they made sure one was available and taught me how to operate it. Absolutely recommend for all hiring needs, will be coming back for many years to come.

I hire from Vermont Hire all the time and am forever singing their praises. Over the years I tried Kennards Hire and Hire-It but the level of service and state of the equipment from each of these places pales into insignificance compared with Vermont Hire's. The staff are outstanding, very friendly, very patient, very knowledgeable and are very keen to ensure you are hiring the right piece of equipment for the job you need. The equipment works first time, every time, they are contactable if you have problems when using it and they show you how it works, what to do and what not to do before they set you free with it. They are now my one and only hire shop and I often ask them for their advice before I even start one of my many DIY projects.

I had a very positive experience hiring a line trimmer. They answered all the questions I had about the job, the deposit process is simple and painless, and they supplied me with extra fuel and spare lines for the trimmer with no hidden costs. Great value for money and good customer service.

We hired a scissor lift for a painting job in Warrandyte. The machine was in great condition, delivery was punctual and the delivery driver was very polite and gave us a good induction. It saved us a lot of time and did the job easily, and at a fair price of course! It was a very good hiring experience, look forward to hiring from Vermont Hire again - highly recommend!

Hired a chainsaw. It was in great condition and did my task easily. Vermont Hire had the saw available on short notice. Really good service and would recommend without hesitation. Excellent!

Vermont Hire is a fantastic business. The hiring process is always straight forward, hassle free and reliable! As a local Vermont based business we often hire their pressure cleaners if we need an extra one for the day. If you're looking to hire from people who know what they're doing, these are your guys! Highly recommend!
