Australian Manufacturing Excellence

Hidrive is Australia’s only manufacturer of service bodies for utes, trailers and trucks with a company-owned national installation network. We build fit-for-purpose aluminium canopies for trades and industry, and we are ISO 9001 (Quality), ISO 14001 (Environment) and ISO 45001 (Safety) compliant.

Hidrive is vertically integrated, offering over 190 modular and electrical accessories to turn your service body into a truly mobile workspace. These range from shelving, benches, roof storage and drawers, to towbars, inverters, lighting and much more.

Like an aircraft fuselage, our light and durable aluminium canopies are engineered to maximise payload and stability, improve fuel efficiency, and be resistant to corrosion, UV damage and vibration.

Our products have been bulletproof in the toughest Aussie conditions since 1993. Through 30 years of continuous improvement, our service bodies have evolved into the high-performance range you see today.

Why Choose Us?

Your 10 Point
Fit-for-purpose Checklist

   
Is it aluminium?
for durability, the lowest weight and maximum payload?
Can you work out of it?
Gullwing doors that shelter from rain and sun?
Will your gear move around?
How will you fit, organise and tie-down tools and stock?
Is it secure?
e.g. central locking.
Is your seal on the door?
Seals around the entrance are easily damaged when loading or unloading, letting in dust/water thereafter.
Is it durable?
A Hidrive will not develop structural cracks or rust.
Has it got integrated roof, ceiling, wall and underfloor fixing tracks?
Consider how you’ll add or move accessories without drilling.
Do your utes look, function and perform consistently?
Ensure your team has a consistent fleet, nationally.
Have you reviewed our 120 accessory groups?
Ensure your mobile teams are productive.
Do you have national safety compliance?
Be ready for any mining, construction, airport or roadside job.
