Long term vehicle hire and fleet hire for mining operations, civil, construction and infrastructure projects in Australia.


With more than 175 mines of different sizes across Western Australia, mining operations have a vast range of demands when it comes to vehicle hire. As well as iron ore, the most important commodities for mining in WA are oil, gas, gold, alumina and nickel, base metals, diamonds, salt, mineral sands and coal. From a natural gas reserve needing four-wheel drives and flatbed trucks for their project at Barrow Island – a salt mine needing a 12 or 57 seat bus to transport staff, or a crane truck for its operations at Dampier, Newman or Port Hedland. Or even Pilbara Minerals Limited, who supply lithium and tantalum to global markets.

With projects such as roads, buildings and highways, Raw Hire works closely with Local Government or Main Roads. Past projects have been the Armadale Road extension, Wanneroo Road Extension, Fauna Trapping projects and also Jandakot Extension. 

Construction and Infrastructure:
Raw Hire has been involved in the Construction / Infrastructure Phase of the Gorgon LNG Project (both Barrow Island and Henderson), Karratha Gas Plant, Karratha Burrup, Sino Iron, Wodgina Gas Plant, Chevron Wheatstone Project (Onslow) and also the Southflank Project Non-Process Infrastructure.
