Proquip is a leading equipment sales and hire company supplying excavators for mining, infrastructure, earthmoving, earth works, civil construction and a wide range of other industries. Whatever scale your earth works project, Proquip Rental & Sales has the right excavator hire equipment to complete your project quickly and efficiently. With equipment hire locations near Melbourne, Melton, Carrum Downs and Geelong, we can provide an individually customised dry hire solution to meet your needs wherever you are based in Melbourne and the surrounds in Victoria.

Short and long-term dry hire available

At Proquip we offer both short and long-term dry hire services, with lower rates for longer contracts. We have diggers with different tonnages and sizes to fulfil all of our clients' excavator hire demands. Whether you prefer a Yanmar excavator, CAT excavator, Kobelco excavator or Volvo excavator, we offer all of these industry recognised brands.

To ensure our excavators perform optimally onsite, every machine is serviced regularly to manufacturers' standards and undergoes general maintenance. We also undertake a comprehensive analysis and complete a checklist before dispatching equipment to your work site.

All of our excavators for hire are modern, safe and versatile. We understand the pressure of finishing projects on time and on budget and can dispatch equipment urgently if an onsite breakdown has occurred or you've fallen behind on a project and require additional equipment to fast-track operations.

Our large network of hire staff are dedicated to ensuring you have the right excavator for your project and are happy to advise you if you're uncertain. Whether you need to rent an excavator for a day through to several weeks, we have a large fleet enabling us to deliver a customised hire solution.

For mining projects we have diggers that are equipped to full mining specifications. We also have equipment that we've had specially adapted by the manufacturers to be stronger and more resilient for work in different conditions.

So that our clients can hire our excavators for all types of earth works, we also have a vast selection of attachments for hire.

The Proquip Rental and Sales P/L (PQRS) business started in March 2008 in Melton, Victoria specialising in earthmoving & associated equipment from 1.0 to 30.0 tonne. Recognising the need for a flexible hire company with high quality, up to date equipment based on excellent service, the business has experienced rapid growth in both rental & sales.

With possibly the most up to date fleet in the industry, sourced globally, (PQRS) has developed into the first point of call for the tradesperson, builder & civil contractor. Many lines are exclusive whilst others have been especially adapted by manufacturers to be 'hire tough' and meet our company's exacting standards.

Today PQRS is Australian and family-owned. Our aim has always been to provide excellent service and be the best hire company, not the biggest so that you can enjoy being “not just a number”. Our management and staff strive continuously for higher standards in all operations.
