Congratulations to Swan Hill Hire – Winners of the Kanga and Kubota cross promotion GL6000 generator giveaway
Built tough with Kanga innovation, safety and environmental features, Kanga Loaders has been supporting the Hire and Rental industry for 33 years and according to Rod Lehpamer, Kanga Loaders Global – National Sales and Marketing Manager, Kanga’s mantra is: ‘At Kanga we make it our business to understand your needs.’ This instilled in our staff from sales to service to workshop.
Therefore, it is with great excitement we announce Swan Hill Hire as the winners of our HRIA joint promotion with Kubota, says Lehpamer. We have been working quite closely with Kubota during 2014 and we have seen a noticeable spike in diesel operated sales, especially within the Hire and Rental industry. We were quite overwhelmed with the number of entries and glad to see long-time Kanga customer Swan Hill Hire take away the GL6000 Kubota generator.
A little about Swan Hill Hire…
When Neville & Sharen Roesler bought Swan Hill Hire, in September 1999, it was a small business generally aimed at DIY customers and predominately focusing on the Garden and Landscape industry with a few trailers also available to hire.
It was their aim to expand their equipment offering for the building and construction business. The fleet began to grow with the addition of scissor lifts, EWP and mini diggers. This helped to set up the business to where they are today. In 2002, they moved into their present highway frontage location and their purpose built premises. A purpose built premise was not very common in those days and the highway location was “the best advertising we ever did”, said Neville.
At that time they set up Swan Hill Party Hire which was eventually sold in 2010. With “spare time & room on their hands”, Neville decided to add Nifty’s Auto Rentals, to their expanding hire business. Nifty’s allowed them to hire out cars, utes, furniture trucks, a 12 seater bus and a small tip truck. This seemed the perfect addition to their expanding business. As their business hours are spread over seven days it was no disadvantage to be open to hire out vehicles.
Swan Hill Hire prides itself in keeping up with new trends and adapting to change. This has led to the business supplying a wide variety of equipment for hire, eg: scissor lifts, EWP, 2.5 tonne roller, 1.6 tonnes mini excavators, Kanga diggers, trailers of various sizes, saws for many applications, floor sanders, jack hammers, compactors, screeds, temporary fencing, scaffolding, portable toilets and showers, lawn mowers, lawn aerator, lawn dethatcher, pumps, generators and compressors of various sizes.
Swan Hill Hire services an area of up to 150km radius of Swan Hill. As the business has expanded so has the need for more employees. The business employs 5 staff, which was a bit different to when they began with just Neville, as the sole employee.
Swan Hill Hire and Kanga have a partnership that has spanned over a decade and with Neville’s continued growth in the Swan Hill region, Kanga is excited to offer earth moving solutions throughout the area. Recently Swan Hill hire took owner ship of their new DW625 Kanga loader making his fleet 2 strong and he has also taken ownership of 2 new 1.7 T Kubota excavators making his fleet of earthmoving solutions Kubota Strong.
