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.

Alpha provides an excellent array of well-priced, high-quality vehicles for hire. Their service - from the airport shuttle right through the collection of the car - is efficient, friendly, and generally pleasant. On return, the efficiency is magnified, and the shuttle back to the airport is timely and comfortable. The quality of the end-to-end service is very high. I highly recommend Alpha if you ever need a car hire when flying in from Brisbane.

My partner and I rented a car for five day in our stay in the Gold Coast and the price was really good and affordable. The process to pick up and dropp off the car were also really fast and easy, and the car that they gave us was beautiful and really easy to drive!Gonna choose Alpha Car next time for sure! =)

Excellent service and the car I rented was value for money. But the car had fungus smell and the uplostry was dirty. Apart from these the car is good to drive with family members. I recommend this company for car hire. Hope they maintain the car with cleanliness and fungus smell removed before that hand over to customers.

Edited: changing from1 star to 4 because despite the email support being next to nothing - when I picked up second car and the aircon didn’t work consistently I called and explained the intermittent problems and water dripping on my feet and they replaced it the same day. Did waste a half day for me driving there and back but they fixed the problem and that’s most importantI have one positive. The airport shuttle driver was fabulous. But that’s about where it stops.- online communication is extremely poor- car was filthy- car was not full of petrolDespite making contact 3 times about the state of the car and fuel my messages have been ignored. I have left the car far cleaner than when I received it so if their cleaning fee is charged I’ll be annoyed- the warnings about the cleaning fee are quite intense and definitely makes one feel paranoid and unable to enjoy their journeys.Price was okay. Until I extended by 15 hours or so and then completely unreasonable for a car I had had to get up to an acceptable cleaning level of my first day.Photos only a few examples. Unfortunate that I picked the car up in the dark so didn’t see til the morning. On my hire next week I’ll be looking closer for sure.Do not tell me that this is not the ALPHA way and the next customer will benefit. I’d like to know how I will be compensated. And clearly the next customer won’t benefit as I haven’t benefited from all the previous comments with similar complaints.

Customer service is good. Picking up and returning of the car is hassle free. Car is relatively new and well maintained. Price is cheaper compared to other established companies. Shuttle service is efficient. Will definitely recommend to friends and families. Rented from 9th Dec toc 2023.

The airport shuttle was efficient. There’s a free public phone at the international airport that you can use to call for it, and we waited about 10 minutes. The purple buses are easy to spot. When we returned the car at the end of the hire the shuttle went straight away.The car was a fairly basic model with 48k km on the clock but it did the job, and was clean and in good condition. Good value. I would use them again.
09:24 28 Nov 23
Efficient check out but they missed a few comments about what grade of fuel to use and to advise me about the tire pressure warning light. Also the fuel tank in my car was not full when I picked it up.

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!
