WE WELCOME YOU...
Welcome & thank you for your interest in Little Diggers

START UP WET-HIRE SERVICE

Let us know if you or a friend are interested in starting your own wet hire excavator or skidsteer service.

We may have a special deal for you.
We can supply you with a brand new machine and trailer to your specifications on a one, two or three year term hire with your per day hire dropping significantly as the length of your hire increases.

Indicative ex-GST hire rates on a $60,000 RRP brand new machine and trailer package are:

  • One year:        $18,000 total or $1,500 a month payable in monthly instalments
  • Two years:       $30,000 total or $1,250 a month payable in monthly instalments
  • Three years:    $36,000 total or $1,000 a month payable in monthly instalments

Plus we:

  1. Provide you with your own wet hire website and business management/marketing system using your business name and structure
  2. Allow you to list your machine on our website for hire on the days you are not booked for a 20% transaction fee. So you still earn income when you are not booked or are on annual leave, paternity leave or not able to work for health reasons
  3. Use our best efforts to refer wet hire work to you.

At the end of your hire period you simply return the machine to us in good condition with all maintenance records complete and correct. That’s it. Your responsibilities end there. Or you can offer to buy the machine at market value. Your call. Interested? Fill out your contact details below and we’ll be in touch.

PEER TO PEER HIRE SERVICE

Do you have an excavator, a skid steer or a similar machine that is not used every day?

Have you thought about hiring it out through the Little Diggers website?

This can be a great way to generate extra cash flow without doing much work. Make the machine work for you.

If you are interested contact Cam below. We can arrange extra insurance and can coordinate the service for you.

LITTLE DIGGERS JOINT VENTURE

Interested in starting a Little Digger business in a joint venture with us?

Hiring limited access size excavation equipment is a part time business activity that makes sense for a lot of people, particularly those with mechanical experience and expertise.

If you have a day job a Little Diggers Joint Venture can be a low risk side-hustle to generate significant extra cash flow. We live in uncertain times so it makes sense for you to have a sound and safe fall back occupation to guard against a rainy day.

Think about sharing the side-hustle with a trusted mate. Share the workload and the profits and if one of you wants a holiday the other takes over for a while. Three or four machines can be easily run from a big garage and back yard. So you have no rent, no wages costs and virtually no other costs. And the 100% tax depreciation write off means you can deduct the cost of your assets against your salary and wage income to achieve large tax refunds in year one.

If you have an existing business and some spare time and some spare space a Little Diggers Joint Venture makes a lot of sense for you too. You can create additional reliable cash flow without extra labour or rent costs. You can use the equipment in your own projects and hire them out to friends and workmates as well as the general public.

If you are retired, or concerned you may soon be retired, a Little Diggers Joint Venture can be a great retirement activity. You stay engaged and active and financially independent: you don’t run down your retirement capital.

The tax planning is great: the $150,000 tax depreciation write off plus superannuation plus other basic tax planning opportunities means you will not pay much extra tax and in fact some years you may get a bigger tax refund cheque.

What do we do?

Little Diggers allows you to access better asset prices from our suppliers, low cost vendor finance, a website that markets you, not us, “virtually lends” you assets so your business looks bigger (and allows you to earn passive income by sub-hiring other partners’ assets), all administration including bookings and payment by credit card and after pay payment tools, automated customer tax invoices, regular Business Activity Statements, monthly Xero management reports and KPI reports and annual Xero accounts ready for your accountant to turn into a tax return.

Little Diggers provides a ready to go customer relations management system, potential customer lists and recommended marketing letters and blogs for your website.

Little Diggers pays for 20% of your new assets.

Little Diggers monitors your machines remotely, noting locations and key operating metrics. (This information is shared with you.)

Little Diggers arranges insurance for you.

Subject to distance issues, Little Diggers lets you show other joint venturers’ assets on your website under its share arrangements. You get passive income if these assets are hired through your website.

In short, Little Diggers provides you with almost everything you need to run a good little Little Diggers business.

What do you do?

You provide a place of business, either your home garage/yard or a small factory (or part thereof).

You talk to your customers.

You monitor your bookings.

You make sure your excavators and skid steers are serviced, clean and ready to go for each hire.

You check your machines when they come back and you make sure they have not been damaged or misused. You deliver and pick up as required.

We are partners, not franchisors.

We share profits, and that’s all we get from the relationship.

There are no expensive franchise set up costs or monthly franchise fees for you to pay.

What assets do you need to buy? How much does it cost?

This depends on your local market, your experience and expertise and your ambitions.

As a minimum we recommend two excavators and one skid steer.

This costs about $100,000 net of GST before tax, less the 25% we pay, or $75,000. If your marginal tax rate is otherwise 30% this will cost you just $53,000 start up capital.

We provide everything else you need to get started. You just provide your start-up capital, a place to operate and your time and energy.
