Idle Australia is a platform for the supply and hire of equipment needed by construction and trade industries.

The service enables business owners to freely advertise their assets for hire, and equally to rent advertised equipment directly from other local business. Best described as the “Airbnb for construction”, we're re-defining benefits the construction industry can achieve using software services and digital innovation. 

We know the unseen professionalism and integrity that exists within the construction industry, treasuring these qualities like diamonds in the rough. Whether it's for a dry daily rental or a wet long-term project, we pride ourselves on relentlessly championing your success like it was our own.

The Story

From its humble beginning in 2016, Idle Australia has been processing the short-term rental of equipment throughout Australia. Cutting his teeth as an electrician, Dylan Hrurukvit, recognised the opportunity for collaboration between businesses when considering the utilisation rates and cost of company assets like cable analysers and excavators.

Although our journey has since taken us to landscaping and earthmoving markets, many of our proudest and most reliable equipment suppliers remain who supported our vision and direction from the beginning, of whom we appreciate dearly.

This leads us to the present 2018, where we're currently full steam ahead with a strong focus and commitment to excavators, loaders and compactors with a newfound audience. Beyond asset inefficiency, we're applying ourselves with a birds-eye view to even bolder challenges within the industry; including better payment terms for all, creating price transparency and online convenience, for an industry under-served with digital innovation.
