Alongside tipper truck hire rates, below you’ll find a variety of tippers available for hire including the average tipper payload capacities and licensing required to operate.

Tipper Hire Rates Guide

Local plant hire suppliers most frequently offer tipper trucks on a wet hire basis due to the strict licensing requirements, however, you can hire some tippers on dry hire (usually in smaller capacities). Review the differences between wet and dry hire here.

Hourly rates are based on a wide range of conditions, such as the age of the truck, the conditions you're working on or under, and your location in Australia. Day rates are calculated on the basis of a standard 8-hour work day. All rates are ex GST.

Often our suppliers offer discounts for long-term hire, or if you are working for a reputable contractor. That’s why it’s so important to use iseekplant to get accurate rates. Click here to Get Quotes. We don’t recommend staking your project estimate on the generalist rates below.

Bogie Tipper / Body Truck Rates

Bogie drive tippers, also called Tandem Tippers and Body Trucks, are the most prolific kind of tipper available for hire. These tippers can be hired separately or as part of a combo hire with Excavators or Bobcats.

Tipper TruckOver 10 TonneWet Hire$120 - $140 Min 3 Hours$900 - $1,100

Truck and Dog Hire Rates

Truck and Dog and Truck and Pigs have similar capacities, the difference lies in the type of trailer used. A dog trailer is capable of pivoting on a wider radius, whereas a pig trailer is more fixed and tips on a smaller radius. The hire choice all comes down to how much flexibility you need to dump the trailer's contents.

There can be large swings in dry hire hourly rates for larger trucks, as many operators don’t put these trucks on dry hire, due to potential damage as well as the safety parameters and obligations under the NHVR.

Semi Tipper Hire Rates

Semi Tippers have a large capacity and are built for transporting bulk materials across paved roads, and over the long haul. The difference between a single semi-tipper, a B Double (2 trailers) and a Road Train (3 or more trailers) is just the number of trailers attached to the prime mover.

Typically trucks as big as Semi Tippers aren’t offered as short-term dry hire, so we haven’t included a standard minimum for hourly rates, as these vary wildly.

Side Tipper Hire Rates

Side Tippers provide an alternative dumping position to the conventional tipper, allowing for easier unloading in projects with specific tipping requirements. These tippers are commonly used in construction sites such as pipelines (where materials need to be dumped along a long-straight line) and can carry a variety of products, from bulk commodities to raw materials and mining products.

These are general rates for side tippers with 1 trailer. Request accurate rates from suppliers on iseekplant for side tippers with more trailers.
