Ute hire in Australia

Get a quote and book your ute hire online

If you have D-I-Y jobs to do around the house, a new fridge to pick up, or a job on site, consider Thrifty as the ute rental specialist.

Hire a ute to suit any task

Thrifty's range of utes includes dual cabs and single cab trays at great rates. Our utes are the perfect solution to help you move furniture, gardening waste or other small-to-medium-sized loads from place to place. Our diverse fleet includes both manual and automatic utes.

To drive one of our rental utes, all you need is a standard car licence. Utes are perfect to supplement your existing work fleet, particularly for those extra jobs that require a bit more loading space. Need to rent a ute for a few hours, a day, a week, a month or even longer? Thrifty can help with long term leases on ute rentals.

Our ThriftyMove package for small businesses is a great option for businesses who will need a regular or long-term ute hire.

- Packing boxes
- Packing tape
- Straps and ropes
- Stair climbing trolleys
- Blankets for furniture moving
- Free 24-hour roadside assistance

Need protection and damage cover on your ute rental?

Utes are tough, but not bulletproof. Take your pick of Thrifty's protection options for added peace of mind and reduced risk to your wallet.  With your next ute rental, consider Premium or Ultimate Protection.
