We have experience and can act in matters relating to construction heavy machinery and equipment.

Disputes often arise in connection with the purchase and sale, leasing, financing, use or operation of construction heavy machinery.  Sometimes disputes arise in relation to ownership or possession of  construction heavy equipment.

We set out below some of the common types of disputes arising in relation to construction heavy equipment.

Types of Disputes

Common disputes include those related to: purchase and sale, pre-sale representations, warranties, damaged equipment, sale by auction, shipping heavy machinery and equipment, damages, loss and collapse, hire-purchase disputes, ownership and possession, and repossession by court order.

Types of Construction Equipment

A vast array of construction equipment is deployed in modern construction projects.  Some construction companies lease and others purchase. Some have only occasional need for some construction heavy equipment.

Typical construction heavy equipment and machinery includes:

Backhoe loaders, breakers, bulldozers, chippers, compactors, concrete plants and pumps, conveyors, cranes, crawler loaders, dredgers, drillers, dump trucks, excavators, fork lift, gantry cranes,  graders, heavy lift equipment, loaders, pavers, pile drivers, pulverisers and crushers, trenchers, scrapers, skid steer loaders, rollers and trailers.
