This is a key time for machinery and equipment acquisitions. Temporary full expensing is set to expire on 30 June, leaving only a relatively short timeframe for operators to purchase and have machinery in operation. The RBA has again given strong indications that we will see further interest rates rises including for equipment finance in the months ahead. And operators have a number of major expos and shows with opportunities to order new machinery just months away. Following the Dirt and Turf Expo in Sydney in April is the Heavy Machinery Show in Brisbane in May.
With its new name, the Heavy Equipment and Machinery Show previously known as the Civil Construction Field Days is shaping up as another must-attend for operators in construction, earthmoving, infrastructure and civil construction sector. A major drawcard of the event will no doubt be a new addition to proceedings – a live auction of equipment and machinery by Pickles Auctions.
It's one thing to be there, it’s another to be there to genuinely bid at auction or place orders. Buyers planning to place orders at the Heavy Machinery Show or purchase at the live auction, can pre-arrange their equipment finance with Jade Equipment Finance.
The Heavy Equipment and Machinery Show is being held in conjunction with the Brisbane Truck Show by the Civil Contractors Federation of Queensland. The one ticket covers both shows and both events share handy shuttles and other facilities.

The speakers at the conference have been named as including Dr Ben Heard, an expert in alternative energy; Aaron Broughton, the Executive Director of Infrastructure for Brisbane Games; noted demographer Mr Bernard Salt and Drew Klease, the Principal Economist at QIC.
The CEO of the QLD CCF, Mr Damian Long said that the Federation is thrilled to be partnering with the Truck Show as the two events share synergies. He said that the industry participants had become even more time-poor and that events such as this which provided buyers with opportunities to see many new technologies and machinery in the same place at one time, was required.
To promote working in the sector and no doubt address the current labour issues, a careers, training and jobs hubs will be at the show.
The location is ideal for accessing many of Brisbane’s attractions and shuttle buses will transfer guests between the equipment and trucks shows.
Organisers are expecting over 80 exhibitors to display the latest machinery, technology and equipment at the show. The full listing is still be revealed but already includes big names such as Hastings Deering, CAT, KOR and Maxilift.
The auction to be conducted by Pickles Industrial will be held on the Friday. Closer to the date, buyers can check the lots at the auction house website.
Be Prepared with Equipment Finance Secured
Two key points mentioned by Mr Damian Long dovetail appropriately into the conversation about securing equipment finance through us prior to this event. The show being a fantastic opportunity to purchase so many of the latest models and technology.
This show certainly does look like presented great opportunities to purchase both new and used machinery. The used machinery being via the auction. But in order to have that confidence to bid or buy, operators will want to have their finance sorted or at least be approved for a certain loan limit.
The other point – how many operators are time-poor.
We fully appreciate that many operators in civil construction are extremely time-poor especially when it comes to arranging things over the phone and possibly in the office. Their priorities have to lie with the jobs, possibly spending the majority of their time on site. That leaves less time available to scour the vast lending sector to secure the cheapest equipment finance.
Using our services can address both those issues quickly and seamlessly and deliver the cheapest interest rates on equipment finance. We have accreditation with over 60 lenders – banks and non-bank. Our consultants know which lenders are offering the best rates at any particular point in time. Rates do vary over time as lenders don’t uniformly follow RBA decisions or set the same rates. Lenders will vary their own rates based on the outlooks from their own analysts.
With our extensive resources and expertise, we can quickly identify which lender is offering the best rate to match with the application details of our customers. Saving our customers the time which they really don’t have much to start with anyway.
In the lead-up to the Heavy Equipment and Machinery Show, operators can speak with us about the best way to organise finance.
- If planning to bid at auction, that may mean securing finance approval to bid to a certain dollar limit.
- If planning to place an order on a specific item of new machinery, that can mean securing a confirmed offer for pre-approved finance.
Both can be of extra importance to buyers requiring Low Doc and No Doc Finance. These operators can often face many uncertainties around sourcing cost-effective finance which can be a major obstacle to securing the equipment required.
Buyers can be prepared with equipment finance with their choice of product – Leasing, Rent to Own, Chattel Mortgage and CHP. The Heavy Equipment and Machinery Show is not that far away, so don’t put finance plans on the back burner, speak with us soon to get things underway.
