​A complete list of insurance exclusions in included in our full Terms and Conditions below.​

Credit/Debit Card Required For Hire

Payment is to be made at the commencement of the rental by either cash, EFTPOS or debit/credit card. Regardless of the payment option selected, a valid credit or debit card in the name of the main Hirer needs to be provided.

Security Bond

When Bronze or Silver Cover is selected a NZ$500 security bond is required for all van and truck hires and is refundable on completion of the hire. The bond is held via a pre-authorisation on a valid credit card/debit card which must be in the main hirer’s name. If Gold Cover is selected, no bond is required. 

If we are unable to place a pre-authorisation for the bond, a cash bond may be taken. Alternatively, Gold Cover can be taken to waive the bond requirement.

Cash security bond refunds will be processed within 21 working days following return of the vehicle.

Kilometre Charges

For hire vehicles that include per kilometre charges, these charges will be taken from the security bond upon return of the vehicle. We may take additional charges incurred (e.g. infringement fees) at the end of the hire period from the security bond.

Early Returns / Extensions

If the vehicle is returned early for any reason, there is no refund available for the unused portion of the hire.

Extensions are subject to vehicle availability. The daily rental rate for any extension will be the daily rental rate applicable at the time the extension is requested – i.e. the daily hire rate of your extension may be at a higher rate than your initial hire rate.

Additional Charges
  • Infringement Processing Fee - $50 per infringement (includes speeding/parking tickets, road tolls not paid etc). This cost covers our admin team's time transferring liability for the infringement to the hirer.

  • Cleaning Fee - $200. Vehicles are to be returned in a clean and tidy manner

  • Smoking Fee - $200. Smoking in, or near the vehicle is prohibited

  • Filling Fee - $25 (+ the cost of fuel). Vehicles are to be returned with a full tank of fuel.
