Our Services



Because plant hire companies pay an affordable, flat, yearly membership to iSeekplant so we find them leads, new business contacts and projects. Thousands of companies pay us to market their business capability online directly to you – their potential new customers.

We don't take a cut of your hire contract, there is no margin added to your hire rates when using iSeekplant and our membership is a flat fee which is a fraction of the cost of any other medium that these companies could use to market their businesses online, generate project leads for their machines or pay their own business development staff to find new customers. For that flat fee, we promote our members to people in procurement functions at all levels of civil construction and mining projects then utilise our many marketing, human, partner and digital resources to find work for our customers.

All that means: using iSeekplant is a low-risk, no-cost, targeted way to identify suitable suppliers for your earthworks projects saving your business time, money and resources.

Who made iseekplant.com.au?

iSeekplant.com.au is owned (and was developed) by a group of plant users and digital marketing experts, frustrated by the time it took to source plant suppliers for major earthworks projects in mining and civil contracting. The business idea was developed, and is now run by industry insiders to ensure it is useful for its many audiences. Position Partners, a major technology company in the civil industry, backed the company in 2013 giving it national networks of people, facilities and on the ground access to the major earthworks projects in the Australia.

iSeekplant's original directors include Matt Peters, Drew McPherson, Shaun Whittred and Sally McPherson with a combined skills in residential development, major mining construction, civil and mining project management, civil engineering, tendering, estimating, technology marketing and digital marketing. These directors maintain daily contact with their customers and the industry.
