Quality, reliability and service are three reasons a Sydney rental operator chose to build his business with Kobelco.
Value for money is also at the top of the list for Mat Poole, whose southern Sydney company Total Dry Hire (TDH) has been renting equipment to the construction industry across Sydney for the last four years.
”Kobelco excavators are very powerful, they dig well, they work well and they tend not to break down. I can’t fault them,” Mat said.
Kobelco was not the only machinery company Mat spoke to when he started his business but it was the only one that listened and understood his plan. It’s helped TDH grow to an operation with 12 excavators and many of these are Kobelco’s ranging from 1.5 to 48 tonnes. TDH services a range of clients from local builders and plumbers to large-scale civil construction operations building roads and airports.
“One of the biggest reasons for me, in terms of buying from my local authorised Kobelco dealer, Sydney Trucks and Machinery Centre (STMC) is the sales staff. The service is excellent and they went through everything with me, the different machines, the prices and what else they could offer, and that’s where it all kicked off.”
Mat cites availability as one of Kobelco’s advantages. He says the company ‘gets’ the fact that when there is a big contract happening, you need the machine ready to go within your time frame, not the supplier’s.
