In any project of significant size, making sure you have enough fuel is one of the most important logistical challenges. As the single point of contact for Australia’s largest collection of machine hire listings, iSeekplant have a special interest in making fuel supply easy for those managing a job site in Darwin. We want to offer our users every aid possible, and so we’ve added fuel pumps, tanks, and cells to our listings database. Now you really can hire all of the equipment you need without leaving our website.
There are a variety of portable products designed to help ease the burden of fuel management on remote sites. Our user-friendly web interface allows you to narrow down the kinds of equipment you want to hire with search and filtering options, but which ones you actually need will depend on the circumstances of your work and the machinery you’re using.
Most simply, there are mobile fuel stations, which iSeekplant has listings for sizes of up to 100KL capacity and above, with double walled FES tanks for diesel or hydrocarbon storage. If your agreement as a contractor makes it your responsibility to supply fuel on-site, this is the easiest short term option.
For storing fuel on-site longer term, we have listings for a number of standards-certified fuel tanks – crucial for cutting out the delays of waiting for fuel to be delivered. You can also find suppliers for fuel pumps to allow for safe and easy filling and transport alongside any of our other options. Finally, you can hire a fuel cell, which we can locate for you in any shape or size. Converting your fuel to electricity to power other machinery, these devices are a great, environmentally-friendly way to extend the use of your other on-site fuel resources.
The number one reason to use iSeekplant is our unmatched database of equipment hire listings, but we would not be as successful and widely used as we are today without our industry-leading web interface. You can instantly see which fuel equipment suppliers are nearest to your worksite; each search result will have the address and a map reference for the supplier right next to the listing. You can even enter the location you need your equipment at, and sort results to have the closest first. Once you’ve found the right supplier, getting in touch with them is literally a click away. You’ve never hired anything this easily before – get in and secure your fuel equipment today.
