Who are we

We pride ourselves on being Brisbane’s hassle-free earthmoving contractors

Among earthmoving companies in Brisbane few have roots stretching back 30 years. Founded in 1994, M&K Plant Hire was formed by Peter McGhie and Hugh Kyle, who’d been workmates since the 80s.

The pair built up a business known for its no-nonsense, straight talking, inclusive reputation and great earthmoving prices.

M&K’s reputation for true teamwork continues to this day. The proof the company is one big family among Brisbane earthmoving contractors – that is, the proof it’s an operation where fair and honest dealing really counts – are the scores of staff and subcontractors who’ve chosen to work with M & K for a decade or more.

Surviving the introduction of the GST and then the GFC, and thriving as South East Queensland grew to rival Sydney and Melbourne, M&K is always improving, building and changing to meet the times. Still helmed by Peter, M&K’s future looks bright. It’s a future where doing a good job, being upfront and leading the field in expertise and experience will always mean the needs of the customer – your needs – stay front and centre.

M&K are not interested in being the biggest, only the best at what they do. This enables you to know your site rep by name, have their personal phone number and know they’ll always be ready to lend a hand and handle any queries you may have.

  • Wet hire of earthmoving equipment

    Across Brisbane, South East Queensland and beyond, M&K believes a job's only done when it is done right.
    Offering wet hire of earthmoving equipment for all aspects of building industry and home owners, we combine loyal staff with good equipment and a personal approach.
    We specialise in posi-track hire, machinery combos and mini and micro excavators.

  • Professional service, family values

    Family members of M&K's founders still work in the business, making sure every part of the business is connected by strong relationships and clear lines of communication.
    Alongside them, from the top managers right through to the expert subcontractors, are more than 100 other machinery professionals.
    This set-up means traditional values of good service and strong ethics are matched with industry leading professionalism, quality and expertise.
    And, as M&K always says, the operator’s attitude, training and skill is more important than the gear they’re using.
