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.



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.



Since then, the business has grown to include 14 branches Australia wide with over 1000 machines in the Brooks Hire fleet. Brooks Hire Service is still 100% owned and operated by the Brooks family. We are proud to be the largest privately owned construction equipment hire company in Australia.
