Bulk Haulage Pricing Guide

Bulk Haulage is a subcontracted service that is usually quoted on the basis of the weight or loads of materials that are being moved. It differs from tipper hire, which is the hiring of trucks to carry materials which is paid for on an hourly rate basis. One is a hire contract, the other a defined subcontracted service.

Pricing for bulk haulage services varies widely based on the type of goods, distance, vehicle requirements, and specific regulations. Here's an average price guide:

Type of HaulageDistanceSize of Load (if applicable)Price Range
Mineral HaulageShort (up to 50km)Per Tonne$20 - $30 per tonne

Tipper Truck Hire Pricing Guide

You hire a tipper if you intend to ‘bulk haul’ materials, but it’s not a subcontracted service. It's a hire contract, either on wet hire (with operator and fuel) or dry hire (machine only) terms. Contractors with tippers for hire will lease you a truck for a defined period of time. There are big swings in the rates below because truck capacities vary so substantially.

Bulk Haulage Regulation & Safety

In Australia, the bulk haulage industry operates under strict regulations enforced by federal and state authorities. It's one of the most regulated areas in construction. Our verified suppliers prioritise safety and environmental compliance in every aspect of our operations. The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) oversees the implementation of heavy vehicle national laws, while state-based transport departments may enforce additional regulations.

Under the Heavy Vehicle National Law (HVNL), comprehensive rules are established for vehicle standards, fatigue management, mass, dimension, and loading. When you choose an iseekplant supplier as your bulk haulage partner, you should ask for their policy and compliance documentation.

We also need to let you know that as the person hiring the service, you have some culpability in accidents and safety issues. This is due to the Chain of Responsibility (CoR) laws, which we also recommend you review before hiring anyone.
