In the fast-paced world of warehousing, time is money and you need technology that can keep pace with the new challenges that face the industry every day. Whether it is onsite or out on the road, TechRentals has cutting-edge technology that can enhance productivity while providing a higher level of worker safety.


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’re next to plant equipment or near loud machinery, your message will get through with clarity the first time.

Rugged Design
Warehousing environments and workers are tough on equipment. TechRentals supplies Motorola radios that are have an IP67 rating, meaning they’re dust and water resistant, plus they 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?

TR 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
At any warehouse, one of the most hazardous areas is workers operating around that plant and 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.


Traditional wide-area 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 wide-area coverage 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 requiring 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, which saves thousands of dollars on maintenance per year.

Management Software
Real time data is becoming increasingly important to businesses. Having as much information as possible from one source, on one screen is what businesses need. TechRentals provides management software which is an all-in-one solution with the following benefits:

  • Voice & Messaging Dispatch allows the control room operator to talk and message radio users through a PC, laptop, or tablet, removing bulky radios from work areas.
  • Voice Recording allows the control room operations and management to replay messages during important scenarios for review.
  • Private Calling allows control room operations to call one radio user 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.
