Rent a Prime Mover Truck in Australia

Do you need an extra large vehicle to transport a heavy load? At Avis, we offer prime mover hire across Australia, including dedicated set-ups for highway operations. These strong, heavy, and highly capable vehicles are designed to tow semi-trailers, which are connected by a fifth wheel on the rear of the prime mover body. If you're looking for prime mover rental from a trusted national provider, Avis is the solution.

Vehicle Features

At Avis, our prime mover trucks are made for work and ready for anything. They feature a standard B-Double rating and are available with a 6×4 or 4×2 set-up for numerous commercial applications. It's important to note, however, that prime movers are very specialised and only available from select Avis locations. Vehicles, accessories, features, and dimensions may vary from location to location. Prime movers are subject to availability, and licence requirements may vary between states.

Rent Other Commercial Vehicles with Avis

If you need a specialised vehicle for work or recreation, Avis has an impressive commercial fleet. Our commercial range includes everything from small utes and vans to large trucks and buses, so you're sure to find exactly what you need.


How much does it cost to hire a prime mover in Australia?

If you're involved in the transportation industry, then you understand the demands placed on drivers and trucking companies. Transporting large equipment and inventory loads across large distances can be very expensive, with costs skyrocketing when vehicles suffer maintenance problems. At Avis, we offer competitive one-off, ongoing, and backup solutions for the trucking industry, with final costs dependent on the truck, location, and rental period.

What is a prime mover?

A prime mover is the dedicated motor used to convert energy and power other equipment. In the trucking industry, a prime mover is the single heavy-duty towing engine that works from the front and provides power for hauling a load. Prime movers are known by many names, including tractor units, truck units, power units, and semis or rigs. If you're looking for prime mover truck hire in Australia, Avis is the leading national supplier.

What licence do you need to drive a prime mover in Australia?

Prime movers are large and incredibly powerful vehicles that require training and experience. To drive a prime mover legally on Australian roads, an HC/MC licence is required. If you want to rent a prime mover from Avis trucks and commercial vehicle hire, please contact our team for more information.

What is the age requirement to rent a car in Australia?

The minimum age to drive a vehicle with Avis is 21 years of age. All drivers must hold a current, full and valid driver's licence, that has been valid for a minimum of 12 consecutive months. A young driver surcharge may apply.

What if my prime mover breaks down or has an issue?

If you’re on the road and need assistance please call 1800 063 973 and help will be on the way.

If something does cause your vehicle to breakdown, we want to make sure you’re back on the road as soon as possible. That’s why we include mechanical breakdown assistance as part of our rates. We’ll come to the rescue in case of any mechanical fault.

Fees will apply for any at fault issues including running out of fuel, flat battery, flat tyres, lost keys or keys locked inside the vehicle. Consider our optional Roadside Assistance Coverage to cover these items.
