Since opening our doors in 1996, Canberra Hire Pty Ltd has become one of ACT’s biggest privately owned equipment hire businesses. Our first product offering was just a single set of portable toilets and over the years as we’ve proudly become one of Canberra’s favourite event and construction equipment leasers. We now offer a range of equipment for hire, storage solutions and more. 

Our hardworking and committed team is what resulted in us to be chosen by government departments as the sole supplier of portable toilets and other products for a number training exercises in and around Canberra.

After years of working in the hiring and equipment leasing industry, our team has developed great logistical experience. That means we are now capable of easily managing hundreds of portaloos throughout the year, more than 700 to be exact. Typically these need to be relocated or replaced within just days or even hours of us being contacted.

Now, after 20 years, our services extend far beyond just portaloos. We are a leading supplier of construction and building equipment for Canberra’s DIY and home improvement market. Generators, light towers, containers, acrow props, construction machinery and temporary fencing are just a few of the products we offer to our DIY and construction customers.

Reach out to the experts at Canberra Hire today and we’ll have your transportable and construction supplies ready at a moments notice.


The professionalism that your organisation displayed was outstanding. From the ordering to delivery and pick up the whole project was seamless. Congratulations to all involved.

On behalf of the Naasstock IEM Committer, I would like to thank you for your support in 2015. All the hard work has paid off together wit your generous donation of 8 portable toilets; the final tally raised for the Kids Cancer Centre was $50,047.00. Yet again, everything for the event was donated and great fun had by all. Once again I would like tot hank you for helping us raise this amazing amount for the Kids Cancer Centre.

Summernats 29 (2016) was our first event partnering with Canberra Hire after 12 months of discussion. All the staff at Canberra Hire acquitted themselves to a high standard and nothing was a problem. All events are fuild and the suppliers must accept that things will not go to as planned and they need to be able to act and react in a moments notice to solve the unexpected. The team and Canberra Hire, from management to the “on the grounds” staff always gave us confidence they could handle anything we put them to in a timely manner. I have no problem recommending Canberra Hire to anyone who is in need of their expertise. They have top quality equipment and great service.
