Our relationships extend to numerous Local Government areas in North & West Queensland with councils such as Cairns, Townsville, Mackay, Mareeba, Tablelands Regional, Blackall-Tambo, Flinders, Charters Towers, McKinlay, Diamantina, Whitsunday, Carpentaria, Croydon and Etheridge. We are proud of our business relationships with Aboriginal Councils such as Lockhart River, Kowanyama, Aurukun, Mapoon and Yarrabah. As you can see, the regime of isolation is well understood by our company. We have Preferred Supplier Listings with Roadtek Asset Services and the Dept of Main Roads and enjoy our association with the Dept of Defence, TAFE Queensland, State Emergency Services (SES) and Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
We have previously or currently supply light vehicles and light trucks to entities such as Glencore, CST Minerals, BHP, BMA, Aditya Birla, UGL Resources and Rio Tinto, with perhaps our greatest achievement being the supply of all light vehicles to Century mine over a 12 year period. Alongside of this, we have strong, on-going business relationships with Barminco, Incitec Pivot and Dyno Nobel, to name a few. The upshot is that we have extensive experience in the supply of light vehicles for mining applications.
Building & Construction
Some of the many companies we deal with in the Building & Construction industry are Thiess, Boral Resources, Leighton, Pioneer NQ, Downer EDI Works, FGF, Boral Asphalt, East Coast Traffic Control and Fulton Hogan.
We have held and continue to hold strong business relationships in the supply of light trucks and vans with a number of national carriers.
Schools, Sporting & Community Groups
We are delighted to assist a wide variety of schools within the regions where we have a presence far too many to name!! School sporting teams, clubs as diverse as AFL, Rugby League, Soccer, Netball, Basketball, Darts and perhaps our proudest association is with the "Crocodile Trophy", a bicycle event along the lines of the Tour De France which requires up to 30 vehicles covering close to 3,000kms over a two week period. We can also add Historical Societies and Charity groups to the list of satisfied clients who use our services on a continuing basis.
Mum & Dad
From moving house to cleaning up the yard, we provide a wide range of suitable solutions to get the job done.
Safety Management System
All vehicles within our fleet are purchased new, therefore complying with Australian Design Rules (ADR) standards.
We adhere strictly to all Vehicle Manufacturer's servicing specifications to ensure we minimise the risk of breakdowns whilst on hire.
All depots adhere to Workplace Health & Safety (WH&S) regulations at State level. This includes periodic audits to ensure compliance with these regulations and adherence to same by our staff members.
Environmental Management System
As previously mentioned, we purchase our vehicles new. As per our vehicle retirement policy above, much of our fleet is turned over within the 2 to 4 year / 70,000 - 89,000 km mark. While the principle benefit of this policy is the retention of a low age / low kilometre, reliable and late model fleet and are able to on-sell quality used vehicles, we have the additional factor of ensuring that our vehicles are compliant with current emissions standards.
Workshop consumables (filters, lubricants, batteries etc) are disposed of in accordance with Local Council regulations and our control of this segment is audited regularly by these entities. We have had no breach notices issued relating to our methods of disposal.
All paper used in our office is carbon neutral and we donate shredded matter to local entities such as YAPS for use in their kennels.
Quality Management System
Whilst we do not currently hold ISO accreditation, we maintain an approach that achieves the very best in service to its client base. We operate with a view to transparency and integrity.
Transparency can be seen in our Quotations and our Contracts (Rental Agreements). Both are designed to fully inform the client of all aspects of vehicle hire with 1300 Meteor Rentals, with specific attention to: -
Integrity is paramount in any business and we pride ourselves on our consistent attention to ensuring that we conduct our business in a professional, efficient manner without faltering on adherence to relevant legislation, codes or regulations.
