Kennards Lift & Shift , specialists in hire equipment, has opened a new hire centre branch in Queensland.

The equipment hire centre at Rocklea in Brisbane fills a gap in the network of the company’s hire centres, making it easier to service all areas of Australia.

Kennards Lift & Shift hire centres are already operational in Sydney, Wollongong, Adelaide, Melbourne, and Perth.

Allen Besseling, Managing Director, explained, “This gives us a national distribution network, which will be helpful to many of our customers who operate in several states and have been keen for us to expand into Queensland.”

He continued to explain that Kennards Lift & Shift offer lifting solutions for numerous markets, and offer a variety of specialist equipment for hire, a lot of which was formerly difficult to hire in Queensland.

“It includes hydraulic jacks and props, trolleys, skates and pallet trucks, chain blocks and winches, hoists and conveyors, cable hauling equipment, ramps, rigging accessories and general lifting items.”

David Fellows heads up the Queensland operation and has over 22 years experience in the lifting equipment industry in the UK, including management roles with Lifting Gear Hire and Speedy Lifting.

“Someone with that sort of experience doesn’t come along every day, and we are very excited about David joining us and taking this branch forward,” Allen Besseling said.

“David and his team can provide the right advice, as well as the right equipment for all sorts of jobs.”
