HIREWAYS have been growing their presence in the lower North Island by having the quality and range of machinery contractors, farmers and DIY-ers can rely on. This is where you come in - nothing leaves the yard that isn't up for it!

Hireways has been quietly getting the job done without fuss or fanfare. This family owned success story has been growing by looking after their customers with good old fashioned friendly customer service and providing quality machinery for hire.

Hireways have built their reputation on quality gear that can be relied on. They source their equipment locally, nationally and internationally to hire out in the lower North Island. If you have driven between their Wellington and Palmerston North branches you will have seen their equipment at work shaping roads of national significance, on the farm or at homes.

Hireways manage quick response repairs and proactive maintenance programs, across the extensive range of hire plant and machinery. This is where you come in...


What’s the opportunity?

This is a genuine opportunity for a Hydraulic Technician or an Experienced Hose Doctor to get the autonomy and scope you’ve wanted but haven’t managed to get.

Hireways have a great team of engineers, auto electricians, mechanics, technicians and a dedicated parts coordinator in their engineering and diesel workshops. They are looking for a Hydraulic Master to join their team to keep the efficiency of well managed repairs and maintenance for the regions biggest range of equipment:

  • Small to Heavy Diesel
  • Small motor
  • Trucks
  • Rollers

In recent times, Hireways has been implementing new systems to streamline processes, drive efficiency and make the business hum. This includes working with the workshop team with tools/systems/resources that make it easier for you to do what you do.

Hireways commitment to positive change includes growing skills within their already high quality team.
