Regardless of the type of transportation, clear voice communication is vital to business operations. In the 21st century where data is becoming increasingly important, being able to receive real time data from your vehicles or drivers has become equally important to business operations. TechRentals recognises these challenges and can provide a suite of solutions for vehicles and drivers, as well as depot operations and management.


Traditional radio systems were limited in their coverage due to the vast landscape and need to erect a network of radio repeaters at considerable cost. TechRentals provides communication that uses Australian public cellular networks as its backbone. This means radio users now have extended coverage and can transmit and receive messages wherever 3G/4G exists.

Low Maintenance Vehicle Units
Traditional in-vehicle radio setups required on-going maintenance from outside radio companies with units being installed, which meant drilling into the vehicle itself to feed and integrate the wiring. External antennas are constantly replaced by outside radio companies due to damage that occurs during a shift. With TechRentals’s vehicle radios all units can easily be installed by the customer in under 10 minutes with no external antennas to manage or replace, saving thousands of dollars on maintenance per year.

Asset Management Software
With data becoming increasingly important to businesses, having as much information from one source, on one screen is efficient and cost effective. TechRentals’s asset management software provides an all-in-one solution with the following benefits:

  • Voice & Messaging Dispatch allows depot staff to talk and message drivers through a laptop or tablet removing bulky radios from work areas.
  • Voice Recording allows depot staff and management to replay messages during important scenarios for review.
  • Private Calling allows depot staff to call one driver without disrupting others.
  • Driver Safety is enhanced with lone worker functionality which sends depot staff an alert after a period of time if there has been no activity from the driver. Drivers can also activate a duress alarm in an incident for immediate assistance with location details available.
  • Vehicle Tracking provides depot staff with real time location and speed over ground information at their fingertips. Depot staff can also monitor Geo Fenced areas and be alerted when a driver enters or leaves a Geo Fenced area.


Noise Cancellation
Radio messages need to be heard the first time, even in noisy environments. TechRentals provides Motorola radios with the highest level of noise cancelling so regardless of whether you are next to plant equipment or near loud machinery, your message will get through with clarity first time.

Rugged Design
Depot workers are tough on their equipment. TechRentals supplies Motorola radios that are have an IP67 rating, meaning they are dust and water resistant, and have a battery life of up to 28 hours, so they will continue to run throughout the whole working day.

Immediate Equipment Replacements
Any downtime or loss of productivity is detrimental to the site. If you purchase a radio that becomes faulty or damaged and needs to be sent away to the manufacturer for repair, it may take 3- 4 weeks before it is returned. What are your options while it is being repaired?

1. Buy another unit at considerable cost?
2. A worker has no radio meaning they are less productive and are at greater safety risk of an incident?

TechRentals offers immediate replacement of all our equipment, regardless of whether it’s faulty or damaged, reducing your downtime and ensuring that site safety and productivity are maintained.

Site Emergency Systems
If there is an incident, it is crucial that site management is notified immediately. TechRentals provides site emergency systems that not only notify management but also can be activated to sound an alarm or provide announcements via a PA system, increasing evacuation efficiency.

Vehicle-Worker Safety
The most hazardous areas at depots are workers operating around the plant or other small vehicles. TechRentals provides an easy to deploy vehicle mounted system (Sensor Zone) that alerts the driver when a worker is in close proximity while also alerting the worker of the hazard.
