Brisbane First Choice
For Warehouse Labour Hire

Choosing The right Labour Hire Company

Finding a reputable labour hire company in Brisbane is essential to the running of your business. Labour hire services need to uphold the highest customer and employee care level, especially in high-risk areas like ports and warehouses. They also should provide adequate insurance cover to all parties, be occupational health and safety (OH&S) compliant, and charge competitively for their services.

Tough Yakka is one of Brisbane’s most trusted container unloading and warehouse labour supply companies.
Below we have provided a list of things to look for when choosing a reputable labour hire company to fulfil all your logistical needs (spoiler alert: we have them all)!

They understand what you need and communicate well

What’s in a container is as individual as the company shipping it. Whatever your need, excellent labour-hire services can action it into a streamlined service and communicate with you along the process. There should be no part of the supply chain they do not understand.

Maintain quality workers

A reliable labour hire company should have a solid base of quality workers to call on for any job to provide exceptional service. At Tough Yakka, our labour worker base can cater for all demands at any time. We can expand to match the job you have and supply the team to get your job completed in a timely manner.

They provide more than just labour hire

Simply getting the skilled labour hire you paid for is one thing. But at Tough Yakka our team are police checked, Visa Checked and are ready to work. We like to know our team will be available when we need them and this is how we are able to provide quality, reliable service to our clients.

Proven industry reputation

It’s all well and good to wax lyrical about excellent service, but what stands out more is a trusted clientele base. Tough Yakka is proud to be industry-trusted, working with well-known brands. Our clients use us time and time again, knowing the service and skills we offer are unrivalled in our industry.

They charge reasonable rates

When looking for container unloading services with labour hire, a business is looking to reduce hiring staff overheads and need the most cost-effective solution. Our rates are charged per container, not per hour, which means we can offer fixed fee pricing keeping your costs manageable.

They work cost-effectively

When casual staff are paid per hour to unpack your container, you may see little urgency in getting your goods into the warehouse ready for distribution. This model can be costly and frustrating. Tough Yakka can scale up and down our container loading and unloading services and expand our team as required to get more containers unloaded in a day, saving you time and money.

Staff have adequate training and work cover

Perhaps more important than your shipment is the health and safety of those working hard to keep your supply chain streamlined and efficient. It’s essential to choose a labour hire service that invests in the proper training and handling of warehouse goods, with labourers that hold the relevant skills and licenses to work safely. Our team of container and warehouse workers come with fork lifting licenses and first aid certification.

Choosing a labour hire service like Tough Yakka for all your container loading and unloading services and warehouse labour hire ticks everything off this list and guarantees you a service unlike no other. Our much sort after container crews and warehouse staff work tirelessly for hundreds of industries, and we are ready to take on your next tough job. Give us a call today to discuss your labour hire needs, and we can provide you with the toughest team in Brisbane!
