Prime mover hire near you

Prime movers help keep Australia’s infrastructure, mining, and construction industries moving. With a variety of heavy haulage trucks for different needs, you can transport your machinery, equipment, and materials Australia wide.

Prime mover hire is used widely across civil and commercial industries, catering to the required flexibility of the mining and infrastructure industries. Haulage trucks are available for long term hire, short term hire, and some contractors offer emergency haulage services throughout Australia.

Choosing the right prime mover for you

If you’re looking to increase your fleet to meet peak season demand, or simply searching for a short-term heavy haulage truck to move a new piece of machinery, there are options to suit your needs. Prime movers come in many models but will predominantly have the capabilities to suit oversized loads, machinery haulage, agricultural machinery haulage, flat top trailer requirements, and much more. Prime movers are an excellent choice to transport machinery and offer benefits that can help you safely and securely move your machinery from coast to coast.

Most prime movers will offer standard features including a sleeper cab, premium cab comfort for long distance haulage, and up to date dash controls for ease of control and road safety. Some of the top models of prime movers available Australia wide may include Kenworth, Western Star, and Mack. Other features that prime mover suppliers may provide to suit your heavy haulage needs are a truck trailer, tilt tray, pilot vehicle, or drop deck trailer.

Licensing for prime movers

To operate a large piece of machinery like a prime mover, you must obtain the correct licensing. Your Heavy Rigid License is the required licensing to operate a large piece of machinery that exceeds over 8 tonne Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) and has 3 or more axles. Prime movers tend to exceed both specifications, however, suppliers across Australia will often provide an operator with their prime mover hire.
