Truck Hire Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Brisbane

Whenever you need to book a cheap but highly reliable truck hire in Logan, Brisbane, Gold Coast or Sunshine Coast, look no further than Alpha Car Hire. As a homegrown company, we will always be the answer to your “truck hire near me” concerns. Booking a truck from our strategically located branches near the airport will do well for your budget, as opposed to hiring third-party movers. The cost of opting for professional movers can be offset by the affordable price of our rental trucks.  


Anyone over the age of 25 with a regular open drivers’ licence and a credit card can rent and drive our trucks. What’s more, our trucks are automatic.

Every truck in the Alpha fleet has a hydraulic tailgate lifter. This makes moving heavy items a breeze. Just lower the lifter, load it up, press the raise button and your goods are raised to the container level. Combine this lift with a hand trolley and your move is much easier to manage.

If you run a business with ongoing transportation needs, Alpha Truck Hire offers affordable long-term rates. If you need to supplement your fleet for the short or longer term, call us today at 1300 227 473 today or book online.

All vehicles are insured. By selecting the Liability Waiver, renters over the age of 25 can reduce their damage excess. For more details, visit our Terms & Conditions.

Driving a truck for the first time can be a little daunting, even for an experienced driver. Here are a few tips to follow to ensure your truck rental experience runs as smoothly as possible:

  • Give yourself time to get used to the truck. Drive around for a few blocks to get a feel for how it handles on the road.
  • Break early and often. Remember, trucks are larger and heavier than cars. They need a little extra time to come to a stop.
  • Avoid cramming as much as you can into the truck and hoping for the best. As you drive, objects can move out of place and break. Save yourself the heartache and take the time to secure your items properly.
  • Drive below the maximum speed limit to give yourself more time to adjust on the road.
  • Give yourself ample room to turn.
  • Use your side mirrors as most moving truck hire vehicles don’t have central rear-view mirrors. Take note of any blind spots, and be sure to check these, too.
  • Remember that your truck is probably significantly taller than a standard car. Know the precise height of your truck, and keep this in mind when driving under bridges, overpasses, and garages.

The following are not covered by the Total Protection Liability Waiver, Premium Protection Liability Waiver, or the Collision Damage Liability Waiver:

  • Reversing damage
  • Overhead damage
  • Undercarriage damage
  • Water damage
  • Hail damage
  • Negligence or Abuse

Please note that you will not have the benefit of Alpha’s insurance if the rental vehicle is driven on unsealed roads.

All vehicles are covered by 24-hour roadside assistance for all mechanical faults with the vehicle. 

Free Roadside Assistance does not cover non-mechanical defects and driver errors, such as lost keys, keys locked in the vehicle, flat battery due to lights being left on, etc. These instances will incur a $150 fee per call-out.

However, all costs are waived if the customer avails of the $5 per day Roadside Assistance package.

For commercial vehicles (3-tonne trucks and Pantecs) the standard liability is $6,600 for drivers over 25 years of age. If you opt into a listed liability waiver the figure above will be lower depending on the waiver selected. For more information refer to our Terms and Conditions.

Our hire truck units can accommodate a maximum weight of 3 Tonnes, which is more than enough for typical home or office relocations

To give you the best possible experience, our trucks run on Diesel Engines, since these are less likely to stall than petrol-fueled engines. 

Yes, but not to Western Australia, Tasmania or Northern Territory. Travel via barge and ferry is also prohibited. 

No, we highly discourage bringing infants and small children with our commercial moving truck hire.

Good cars, excellent variety and keen rates. Easy website booking. Airport pick up and drop off very good. Good people to deal with. I’ve used these guys twice and will continue on every Brisbane visit.

First time hire with Alpha and I must say it was great. Much better value than other hire companies. Was reticent about the off airport location but the shuttle was easy, virtually no waiting and drivers friendly and polite. Check-in and drop off very easy as well. Again, staff were great. Car clean and no problems.

I used Alpha 10 years back when they had just started out and loved their service back then, so when it came time to hire another car in Brisbane I sought them out. Super pleased to see their great work has paid off and they are now a massive company but have retained the small company service and vibe. Super friendly staff from the shuttle drivers, to front desk and phones. 0800 is answered quickly unlike others. Nice vehicles and great price. Will be back for sure.

Great experience renting a truck (both times). In both cases - clean interior, runs well. Hydraulic lift, A/C, cruise control were in good working order. Booked and paid online, no hassle pickup and drop off, friendly staff. Also, great price on truck rental, looks like the best in the city. Don't forget to fill that tank when returning the vehicle.

The business is located in the perfect spot in Hendra and there is a service station only metres away, making it super easy to refuel just before returning the car. The staff are quick, friendly and efficient. The car I had was relatively new and in excellent condition (although it did need a more thorough clean, which could be due to my last minute booking). The shuttle bus runs regularly and the driver was extremely helpful and considerate. Overall, I was very happy with every aspect of my first experience with them. It won't be my last!
There is no selected car class in current office. Please choose another Class!
