Murrindindi Shire Council
24 January 2011
Murrindindi Shire Council is situated in North East Victoria and was formed on 18 November 1994, amalgamating shires of Yea & Alexandra. Murrindindi had an array of different suppliers for equipment and maintenance.
How Coates Hire has helped
In a bid to streamline the council's equipment hire and maintenance process they asked if Coates Hire (A/H Plant Hire at the time), could help. Five years on and the partnership between Murrindindi Shire Council and Coates Hire is still going strong.
Coates Hire services, maintains and reports on all of the Murrindindi Shire’s equipment fleet; from small trucks and tractors to graders and backhoes.
Coates' extensive network and flexibility means it has been able to utilise the Shire's sheds and garages to service the council's entire fleet. Coates' highly qualified mechanics regularly visit and maintain their equipment, backed by Coates' fully equipped Benalla W/S.
Coates' Hire has supplied Murrindindi Shire with an extensive range of equipment including; utes, water trucks, backhoes, graders, compaction gear and smaller gear such as access and booms.
Bush fire support
Coates Hire also had considerable involvement in supporting Murrindindi Shire through the 2009 bushfires, with the Benalla Branch servicing the SES for whole of Victoria.
