our story



Brooks Hire Service commenced in 1979 when Doug Brooks purchased two u/s compressors on bankcard. In 1982, the first piece of mobile plant was purchased by tender, an 8 tonne JEC crane which Doug drove to Eneabba, a small rural town 278kms north of Perth, Western Australia. At the time, Doug was operating the business from a shed at Eneabba, working 18 hour days and living 5 days a week in a humpy at the back of the shed whilst also working locally as a fitter.


By 1987, the business was ready to open its first branch at Hogarth Street, Cannington and the first apprentice was hired. Five years later in 1993, Brooks Hire purchased a bigger and better premises at 30 Coulson Way, Canning Vale where the business is still in operation today.


In 2020 a new Brooks division was created - Brooks Transport. With a fleet of trucks already being used to transport Brooks' hire equipment, Brook Transport purchased more prime movers and began transporting all types of cargo Australia wide.

Following this, came the opening of Brooks Equipment Sales, specialising in the sale of new mining and construction equipment. From there, Brooks Finance was developed, giving purchasing clients easy access to finance options when buying equipment.

Brooks Access and Brooks Cranes were opened a short time later, specialising in the hire and sale of elevated work platforms, and lifting equipment.

In 2022, Brooks Airways, and sister company, Medical Air was launched. Brooks Airways offers corporate charter flights, FIFO flights, and freight transfers to all industries and private individuals. Medical Air is a specialised MedEvac service, transporting patients in ICU configurated Lear jets all over the world.

The business has now grown to include 21 branches, and 7 divisions Australia wide, with over 5000 machines in the Brooks Hire fleet.The Brooks group of companies is 100% owned and operated by the Brooks family. We are proud to be the largest privately owned construction equipment hire company in Australia.
