Free Quotes

Getting started is easy. Call us to discuss your requirements and schedule and we'll provide a free quote.
We can discuss your job in terms of outcomes such as "I have a 20 foot boat in Yatala that I want moved to Redland Bay" or in terms of time and materials such as "I want to hire the 55 tonne slew crane with an operator for two weeks".

Case Study #1: Redland Bay Container relocation

A customer needed a shipping container moved to new premises in Logan City. The instructions were simple, "relocate the container to the Logan City depot by Tuesday". Assist Hire planned the move including crane, rigging and trucks.

A quote and schedule was provided the same day. The job was accepted and Assist were on the job within 24 hours. This is a simple example of an interaction with Assist Hire, but it's also a great example of how easy the team makes it for customers at all levels of experience.

Case Study #2: Dual Crane Lift ( Jimboomba Water Reservoir)

Our client needed to relocate 3 tilt panels onsite, from one side of the Jimboomba water reservoir to the other side. Once relocated we had to land the panels back on the ground to change the lifting points to the top of the panel to then stand them and position on the slab.

Sounded pretty straight forward except, upon the site visit we learnt the largest panel was going to be 4.8m wide and the access was 4.9m wide. This presented a challenge because the narrow access point was on the greatest radius on the tank hard up against a guard rail.

After a couple of site visits the Assist Hire team decided to dual lift the panels around the tank and then stand them in front of their final position, walk them forward and place them on the slab to be braced with panel props.

With great care and planning the team carried out the job safely and efficiently leaving a very happy customer.

We specialise in lifting, mechanical rigging and relocations so you don't have to
