We are very proud to be the largest privately owned construction equipment hire company in Australia. With 18 branches Australia wide and over 3000 machines, Brooks Hire Service is 100% owned and operated by the Brooks family.
Brooks Hire Service commenced in 1979 when Doug Brooks purchased two disassembled compressors on bankcard. He worked hard to re-assemble the equipment and was soon hiring them out from a shed in Eneabba, a small rural town 278km north of Perth WA.
Since then, Brooks Hire Service has grown to become a nation-wide business specialising in the dry hire of heavy machinery to the civil and mining industries.
Management is now shared with Doug & Roma’s son, Stuart Brooks who is the Managing Director, and daughter Lenore Brooks who is the General Manager. Together, they’ve built a great team of diverse staff members!
In 2021 Brooks Hire expanded to create four separate divisions encompassing transport, access equipment, and equipment sales with over 200 staff members across Australia.
… And that’s why you’re better being with Brooks! Happy National Family Business Day everyone!
