Absolutely phenomenal service from a friendly, helpful and knowledgeable family owned business. Emma and Paul went out of their way to help me out with last minute bookings for a micro excavator and then a mini loader a week later. They were extremely flexible in organizing drop off and pickup times (early mornings, on a Sunday, etc.) and their communication was excellent. Pricing is very reasonable and included delivery, unloading, reloading and pickup. They even helped me out with some flexibility with regards to my hire as I got caught in the rain for a few days. I cannot recommend these guys highly enough, you just don't get service like this anymore. Above and beyond so six stars!

What Our Customers Say
I could not recommend this business highly enough. Not only did Kath and Rod let me rebook due to rain but Rod even delivered the excavator for free of charge before making his way home. There service was excellent and very friendly to deal with I would recommend these guys to family and friends anytime. And to top it off there rates are the cheapest on the sunny coast they are very accommodating I will definitely being using this business again.
Very happy. I had zero experience with this type of machinery but received great guidance from the team... Easy to operate and avoided days of back-breaking work. Great people to deal with. Will definitely be coming back for the next project.
Diggermate responses were quick. The online booking and payment was really easy and simple. The product was in great condition. Wade looked after us and we were happy to re-book with him at a later date. Wade’s customer service and reliability were a high standard, I can definitely recommend Diggermate for your next hire. Top service.
We recommend Diggermate to anyone who's looking to hire. Their services are beyond your imagination. Take our words for it? You'll never go wrong?
Thank you Jeff and Jay. The bobcat was in tip top condition as was the service supplied. Highly recommend Diggermate for your professional service. Was there to help me with pickup late at night, don't go past this business for your digger and bobcat hire.
The Team at Diggermate was very friendly and easy to deal with, even when I inadvertently caused an issue, they were very professional and courteous, would definitely recommend them to others!
Diggermate compliments my earthmoving business by supplying me small tight access machines for jobs where my bigger machines won’t fit.
I was fortunate to find Diggermate among all of the other hire mobs. Ailsa & Graeme are lovely people and deliver on or before time. The mini-excavator never missed a beat, and like advertised, I was getting the hang of things in no time. Can’t wait to use Diggermate equipment again - the amount of work I got through was worth way more than I paid. Thanks, guys.
Couldn’t recommend Wade high enough. Prices are unbeatable and quality of work is second to none. Fast. Reliable and easy to communicate with. Makes the stress of earthmoving so much easier when you can have an open conversation with such an experienced operator about how to achieve your goals. Will be using and recommending again and again.
