Everyone loves a combo deal; they are practical and on top of that, great value. With Ryno Hire’s combo deals, you not only get a great price for hiring multiple equipment in addition to the savings you receive for dry hiring equipment rather than wet hiring, but you also get more equipment to help you complete the job done faster. If you’re wanting to get the ball rolling on your next DIY or professional job and are in need of heavy machinery, Ryno Hire can help you assemble the right equipment for the job at a discounted price. Read on to learn more about our combo hiring system and how it can help you make the most of your next hire.
What Qualifies for a Combo Hire?
As the name suggests, a combo hire is a deal you receive if you hire any combination of equipment made up of two machines or more. Much like single hire deals, the hiring period is incredibly flexible; it can be as long or short as you need. As long as at least two or more machines are booked for the same period, you will receive a combo deal.
This type of hiring system is especially handy if you already know you’ll need multiple pieces of equipment to complete your project (though if you’re not sure if you will, there’s more on this later). At Ryno Hire, we know not everyone has a full range of heavy machinery at their disposal for casual projects or even work – and we know not many have the budget or space for such a catalogue of equipment! That’s why we stock the best and most reliable machines in the industry, to help you finish that special project and save you time and money sourcing the right machines at an affordable price. Get the most bang for your buck by covering all of the tasks you need with the right selection of equipment in a combo deal. Please note that small hire equipment such as rammers, vibe plates or machinery attachments do not qualify for a combo deal; so if you’re unsure about what you hire with this deal then give us a call and we’ll be able to advise you.
What are the Benefits of a Combo Hire?
Undeniably, one of the greatest advantages of hiring multiple pieces of equipment over the same period is that you’ll save yourself some money. Rather than using one machine at a time and racking up a larger bill, you can receive a set price off your hire depending on the number of machines hired and how long your hiring period extends.

Get Multiple Jobs Done at Once
Heavy machines are known for their large scale work. They help out when you’ve got a lot of earth of materials to move, excavate, or remove. If you’re working on a job where there’s a lot of earth needing to be shifted, you’ll find you need more than one machine. For example, if you dig up a lot of dirt with an excavator, you’ll most likely want to move it to another location. For this kind of job, you might benefit from a skid-steer loader. Or, you might want a tipper truck to transport material on or off the site. Once you start, you’ll see that a lot of Ryno Hire’s machines work in harmony.
Shorten the Timescale of Your Project
For those looking to shorten the timescale of their project, combo deals are great as more equipment on site means knocking off more jobs in a day (especially if you’ve got extra hands to help you). You can accomplish more in one day with the right planning, helpers, equipment, and looking at the bigger picture, you’ll get to finish your project earlier than predicted. Who wants to let their work drag on? Getting the job done faster means you can move on to your next one sooner (or take time off… each to their own!).
No Towing Equipment? No Trouble at all
Not everyone has the right vehicle for towing equipment or a trailer they can use for loading heavy machinery. Thankfully, if you’re in need of a tipper truck, you can essentially kill two birds with one stone. Tipper trucks can be used to tow some of the machines, such as Ryno Hire’s Bobcat excavators and skid-steer loaders, making easy work of transporting equipment to and from your worksite. While you might think that you need a truck licence to hire or drive one, you’ll be pleased to know that not all trucks require you to have one. Some of our trucks can be driven on a manual car licence so you’ll be covered either way!
What do I Need to Know if I’m Hiring Multiple Equipment?
Just like with single item hire, there are some steps you need to take before returning equipment to Ryno Hire. First and foremost, ensure all equipment is in the same condition as before it was hired: meaning the machines are washed and refuelled and there is no damage to the tyres or body of the machines.We understand that sometimes accidents happen so always report any damage as soon as it does. To aid in avoiding damage, always use Ryno Hire’s machines in the way they’re intended to be used. Don’t forget: if you need a little more time, an extended hire period is just a call away!
The Best Equipment to Pair in a Combo Hire
There are definitely no rules against what machines you can or can’t combine in a combo hire, or how many machines you hire for that matter; however, if you’re stuck on which equipment to pair, we’ve outlined some of the most popular machines to hire in a combo deal. These pieces of equipment really complement each other in how they function and most of them are multifaceted.
For example, Skid-steer loaders make excellent work of pushing materials around a site, but can also be used for land-levelling and drilling. Excavators, although primarily used to dig away dirt, are also able to be adapted for a range of tasks. Depending on which attachments they are fitted with, they can be used to drill, break up rock, and shift concrete sleepers for example. Then there’s dumpers and tipper trucks; they are great for hauling large quantities of materials across sites or locations. Due to their large capacity, tipper trucks can also be used to tow some of the machines too, like excavators or skid-steer loaders.

How to Know if you Need a Combo Deal…
Not sure if you’ll actually need more than one machine? It’s best to consider whether you’ll need additional equipment prior to starting a project. Meticulous planning helps you work more efficiently and saves you money too. So, if you’re about to embark on a construction job, consider the following questions prior to hiring equipment.
What tasks will I be completing?
Will you be excavating? Bringing in soil? Land-levelling? Digging up fence posts? Or anything required over a range of machines? You’ll want to look into which machines can perform a variety of tasks.
Will I be shifting large amounts of dirt or material?
A typical wheelbarrow only holds 50kg of dirt, which is alright for a small job, like light gardening or landscaping. For a larger job, you’ll need to make multiple trips around the site with a wheelbarrow, which is a physically demanding and injury-inducing task. For larger jobs that require large quantities of dirt being excavated and removed from a site, like building an in-ground pool, you’ll be looking into getting something like an excavator and mini dumper or tipper truck.
How long do I have to complete the project?
If you’re needing to get the job done ASAP and on a strict budget, then you’ll be wanting to get as many machines as necessary on-site at once to complete as many jobs as possible within the same timeframe.
Can I tow the equipment I need?
If you’re already thinking about hiring a tipper truck, then it makes sense to utilise its towing capabilities by getting an additional machine. On the other hand, if you’re not in need of a tipper truck and you still don’t have the capacity to tow equipment, then contact Ryno Hire to arrange the delivery and pick up of machines.
