Satellite Communications Australia-Wide
If you’re bush walking, hiking, taking an off-road adventure, or working in remote locations, you need more than just a mobile phone or GPS to keep you covered. If it’s an emergency beacon you need or voice and text contact with the office or family back home, EPIRBhire can help you find the best solution for your needs.
Life-Saving Technology from EPIRBhire
EPIRBhire has been Australia’s leading provider of EPIRB, PLB, and Satellite Phones for hire and sale since 2002. Our emergency communication devices have directly contributed to 21 rescues since then, saving 26 people in total – four of whom were in dire, life-threatening circumstances.
Standard GSM mobile phones are often unusable in remote locations. Satellite phones are not restricted by the proximity of cellular towers like cell phones, instead they communicate directly with satellites, allowing you to maintain communication wherever you are (with direct line of sight to a satellite). Each devices have it’s own set of strengths and weaknesses – our years of experience can help your ensure you get the right device for your needs.
Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacons
An EPIRB uses dedicated distress signals to send out coded signals in the case of an emergency on your boat. An EPIRB is about the size of a shoe and will float next to you when the boat has sunk.
Our EPIRBs have built-in GPS that allow rescue services to locate your position within 10 minutes to approximately 5 metres.
The PLB is the same as an EPIRB just smaller, so if fits in your pocket. Perfect for bushwalkers, sailors and hikers, our PLB’s have built-in GPS that allow rescue services to locate your position within 10 minutes to approximately 5 metres.
See who’s leading the pack in your remote event. Keep an eye on friends and family that are travelling. Watch over Duke of Edinburgh participants at large. EPIRBhire can increase your events exposure and engagement with your audience for up to 300 competitors. A new service provided in partnership with TrackMe/SPOTNZ

Here are some of our most recent Facebook reviews…
Last minute decided to drive the Nullarbor - Adelaide to Perth - on my own. Caroline and the team were spot on organising a EPIRB and Sat Phone with all the instructions needed. They went above and beyond when the delivered package couldn’t be found, calling me to explain it had been delivered and all was good. The equipment all worked spot on - well I didn’t need to use the EPIRB - and they confirmed it had all arrived back in one piece. Thank you!! #singlefemale #epirb #singledriver #nullarbor

Great customer service (helped to explain which satellite phone was best suited for my trip) with fast responses. Also, very punctual and organised with the dispatch of the equipment. The phone was in great condition, and very easy to use. Made we feel a lot more comfortable travelling into the outback. Highly recommend and will be booking from EPIRBhire again in the future!

Service is above and beyond expected, even for people travelling interstate for yachting events. No fuss forms and even deliver to the event HQ so the PLB is waiting on arrival. Thankyou!
