# Travelling to a mine, construction or industrial site?

Safety requirements vary from site to site - in particular there is no such thing as a standard 'Mine Spec'.
Clients travelling to any such sites are to contact same and request a specification sheet setting out their requirements and forward a copy onto us requesting a quotation or booking.
Clients are responsible for checking and ensuring that the vehicle supplied complies with all site requirements and satify themselves as to its suitability before moving off.

Cape York: Rentals available between April 1st and October 31st. Minimum hire period of 10 days applies.

HELPFUL INFORMATION:

  1. Common practice is to describe a truck by its nominal payload* ie the approximate weight / load that the truck can legally carry - for example, a '2 tonner' will nominally carry around 2 tonnes, and so on. This is how we describe our trucks;
  2. A 'C' class car licence allows you to drive a truck up to 4.5 tonne GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) ie the all up weight of the truck including its load, fuel, passengers etc.). A trucks' GVM rating can be found on its manufacturers' compliance plate and on the registration label.

    4.5 tonne GVM roughly translates to a nominal 2 tonne payload truck, which is the biggest truck that you can drive on a car licence.
  3. Drivers log books are required to all trucks above 12.0 tonne GVM (nominal 7.0 tonne payload), impose regulated driving hours and rest stops, and are heavily policed by the relevant authorities.

Furniture Trucks (pantechnicons)
Move yourself and save! We have a wide range of fully enclosed and lockable drive yourself furniture trucks for hire. Avoid delays - your furniture arrives with you!

Some helpful INFORMATION before we start!

  1. Normal practice is to describe a truck by its nominal payload* ie the approximate weight / load that the truck can legally carry - this is how we describe our trucks. For example, a '2 tonner' will nominally carry around 2 tonnes, and so on;
  2. A 'C' class car licence allows you to drive a truck up to 4.5 tonne GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) ie the all up weight of the truck including its load, fuel, passengers etc.). A trucks' GVM rating can be found on its manufacturers' compliance plate.

    4.5 tonne GVM roughly translates to a nomial 2 tonne payload truck, which is the biggest truck that you can drive on a car licence.
  3. Drivers log books are required to all trucks above 12.0 tonne GVM (nominal 7.0 tonne payload) and are heavily policed by the relevant authorities - log books are not required to any pantec trucks in our range.

  4. Tailgate loader v's slide out ramp:

    Hydraulic tailgate loaders are great for heavy lifts but are slow, require care when operating, reduces the truck's effective load carrying capacity, and are prone to damage if travelling on unsealed roads. Our trucks fitted with tailgate loaders also have slide out ramps. Towbars are not fitted to these trucks.

    Slide out ramps are the quickest and most efficient means of loading and unloading a truck with furniture.

  5. Truck & trailer combinations: Towbars are fitted to all of our nominal 2, 4, 4.5, 5.5 and 7 tonne nominal payload trucks (other than those fitted with tailgate loaders). For extra capacity add one of our furniture trailers (or tow your own trailer)!
  6. What size truck best suits your application? The following table is for use as a guide only.
    A tip: It's better to be too big than too small, especially if travelling out of town to collect your load!

Tippers
For self drive tip truck hire Townsville, self drive tip truck hire Cairns, self drive tip truck hire Mt Isa, self drive tip truck hire Mackay, Meteor Car & Truck Rentals has the largest fleet in North Queensland!

HELPFUL INFORMATION:

  1. Common practice is to describe a truck by its nominal payload* ie the approximate weight / load that the truck can legally carry - for example, a '2 tonner' will nominally carry around 2 tonnes, and so on. This is how we describe our trucks;
  2. A 'C' class car licence allows you to drive a truck up to 4.5 tonne GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) ie the all up weight of the truck including its load, fuel, passengers etc.). A trucks' GVM rating can be found on its manufacturers' compliance plate and on the registration label.

    4.5 tonne GVM roughly translates to a nominal 2 tonne payload truck, which is the biggest truck that you can drive on a car licence.
  3. Drivers log books are required to all trucks above 12.0 tonne GVM (nominal 7.0 tonne payload), impose regulated driving hours and rest stops, and are heavily policed by the relevant authorities.

# Travelling to a mine, construction or industrial site?

Safety requirements vary from site to site - in particular there is no such thing as a standard 'Mine Spec'.
Clients travelling to any such sites are to contact same and request a specification sheet setting out their requirements and forward a copy onto us requesting a quotation or booking.
Clients are responsible for checking and ensuring that the vehicle supplied complies with all site requirements and satify themselves as to its suitability before moving off.
