As one of Australia's leading marketplace for construction plant hire and services, we will help you find and hire the most appropriate crane for your next building project. Our large supplier base provide an array of crane hire options, ranging from crawler cranes, spider crane and Frannas, through to tower, crane trucks and all-terrain crane, and all available for wet hire or dry hire.

Crawler Crane

Crawler cranes are highly sought-after in civil construction for their easy setup on a tracked undercarriage and versatility on various ground types.

Spider Crane

Franna Crane

Franna cranes, known for their high mobility and versatility, are essential in civil construction, fitting into inaccessible areas. With the largest Franna cranes capable of lifting up to 25 tonnes and easily transporting loads on roadways, they are suitable for projects of all sizes.

Tower Crane

Renowned for their impressive lifting capacity and height, tower cranes are the preferred choice for many crane hire suppliers. These cranes are securely attached to a concrete slab, providing stability and reliability. While transporting tower cranes can be a logistical challenge, they are essential for large-scale and long-term projects.

All Terrain Crane

All terrain cranes are highly sought-after for their versatility across diverse construction sites, making them the optimal choice for challenging projects in mining, rural areas, and more. With various models available, these cranes excel in operating in any weather, ground conditions, and locations, ensuring smooth manoeuvrability.

Crane Hire Rates

Crane hire rates can vary dramatically based on a few factors that include, type of crane, tonnage required, location and whether you need an operator and rigger etc. On the low end you could be paying $140 an hour to dry hire a 12 tonne Franna crane, whereas a tower crane could cost you around $15,000 to hire for a month.

Below we highlight some of the more common estimates, so that you can make an informed decision.

Franna crane hire rates

They are the most popular type of crane to hire on the iseekplant platform which often makes their hiring rates more flexible.

16 tonne$180/hr

25 tonne$265-$310/hr

Crawler crane hire rates

Crawler cranes are one of the larger pieces of heavy equipment available through iseekplant's crane hire suppliers, and can lift between 40 to 3,500 tonnes. Crawler cranes are sometimes referred to as tracked cranes due to the set of tracks underneath the machine which allows this type of crane to move.

Depending on distance, delivery fees can cost between $200-$250. Mini crawler crane rates (2-3 tonnes) can cost between $455 and $660 a day.

Tower crane hire rates

Tower crane's demand the highest rates due to their sheer size and can be hired for about $15,000/month. On top of this monthly rate are fees for installation and disassembly which typically costs around $60,000 and includes shipping the crane to site, hiring the mobile crane used to assemble the tower crane, the crew that handles the assembly and so on.

Crane truck hire rates

The most common crane truck is a 6-tonne truck with a crane attached, which costs around $354/day to hire.
