Visa Hire specialises in hiring mine spec 4WD vehicles to mining, construction and technical trades people. Our mine spec vehicles can be prepared with mine-fit-outs to comply with the requirements and safety standards of many sites and mines including CSG / LNG sites and BMA sites.

Even if you’re not working at a mine site, you may require the extra safety features of a mine-ready vehicle for your construction or project site (see our Project Site Vehicles page for more information).

What Is A Mine Spec Vehicle?

Mine specification was a term originally used to describe the modifications made to light vehicles to improve their safety standards for use at mine sites. Today the terms ‘mine spec vehicle’ and ‘mine compliant vehicle’ are also used to describe vehicles that are used at construction sites, building sites, or by any company requiring vehicles to be equipped with extra safety features.

As different mines have different requirements, it’s vital you get a mine spec vehicle suitable for your site. We are well versed in preparing mine compliant vehicles for BMA, LNG, CSG and many other operators’ sites. And if you don't really know what you need, give us a call on 1300 993 767 and we'll walk you through the various options.

Do I need a full mine spec vehicle?

Not every site requires full mine specifications for their vehicles. We provide civil spec or semi-mine spec vehicles for these cases, so you won’t be paying for fit-out you don’t need.

If you’re unsure what your site requires, get in touch and we’ll show you which accessories you’ll need.
