Why Belong to Allied Earthmovers?
If you are an owner operator of earthmoving equipment (including trucks and tippers) it probably seems there is an extra demand on your business every week, whether it be legislation, Work Health and Safety compliance, insurance, employment issues, maintenance, etc, let alone ﬁnding work for your machine.
How do you keep up to date with new legislation and changes? Who does the owner operator rely on to inform them of these changes? In many cases your business partner will also be your life partner, and often – life just gets in the way of business. Your partner may be involved in looking after the family and home, and we all know how time-consuming that can be, as well as helping to run the business. It can be very difﬁcult for owners of a small business to adequately attend to home life, business paperwork and compliance, and operating a machine on site. Involving a third party in your business can be a wise investment and joining an industry organisation is an easy, effective, cost efﬁcient way of easing the pressure.
When you join an Industry Association, it should be letting you know everything that is happening in your industry that is applicable to you in a simple, clear and concise manner. The last thing you need to do in the evening is to wade through pages of information to sort out whether the information is applicable to you or not.
At Allied Earthmovers Association, we will keep you informed on the information you need. However, we will not just send you the information you need and leave you to sort it out alone. We are not just an on-line information site. We will also invite the experts to meetings to talk to you face to face so you can put your hand up to clarify your own particular queries. Face to face gatherings allow you to speak with like-minded colleagues and owner operators about the issues that affect you all. An opportunity to let off steam away from home to someone that understands exactly where you are coming from is a luxury that is not available to all. And of course, while having a good ole’ fashioned rant, you will also be listening, learning, rationalising and gearing up to deal with the latest issue.
However, once you are a member of Allied Earthmovers and have sorted out your insurance, WHS and other paperwork, you will also see the other beneﬁts we have to offer. Our WorkShare system is a simple, yet effective system to share work overload and shortages. It has helped many members look after their customers during busy times or breakdowns and provided work opportunities during quiet times.
And the community and social aspect is great fun. Our members have been involved in some great Charity Field Days, usually donating time rather than money.
