our story

100% AUSTRALIAN OWNED & OPERATED SINCE 1979




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.
