Domestic Property Power Poles - Sunshine Coast, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Hinterland

All Terrain Power can assist you with the installation, inspection, maintenance and replacing of property power poles and the cables they support on your property.

Private Property Power Poles

A property power pole is a pole within your property's boundary that supports the overhead powerlines to your home or other buildings on your property. These power poles are usually made of timber, concrete or steel. Property power poles and the cables they support, belong to the property owner and therefore, the maintenance of these is the responsibility of the property owner.

Our experienced, qualified electricians will listen to your requirements and offer expert advice on the most effective and efficient ways to keep you property power poles and cables working safely and compliant to required standards.

The All Terrain Power fleet includes truck mounted cherry pickers (EWPs) and pole standing machinery. Ask us about the wet hire of our machinery.

Maintaining your property power poles

For safety reasons and to help ensure reliability of electricity supply, it is important to regularly check and maintain property power poles.

Over time, the base of the pole can deteriorate through decay, termite damage or rust.

If this occurs, the pole may weaken, lean or fall over, and potentially cause injury to people or damage to surrounding property. A fallen pole may also bring down the powerline supplying electricity to your property.

This is not only dangerous, as fallen powerlines can kill, but will also interrupt the electricity supply to your home until the pole can be replaced.

How to check, what to look for and what to do?

  • Never climb a power pole or come within 3 metres of power lines – always inspect poles & cables from the ground at a safe distance.
  • Regularly inspect around the base of the pole to make sure there is no decay, sign of termites, rust or other damage.
  • If your pole has a cross arm (a structure attached near the top of the pole that supports the powerline), look at it from the ground and check that it appears to be in good condition.
  • If you suspect the pole has rust or decay at its base, or are concerned about the cross arm or the general condition and/or safety of the pole, contact All Terrain Power and we will check the pole and provide you with a pole condition report and a quote for any repairs if necessary.
