Thank you for your lovely service.  Our wee rent was just what we needed. Will definitely use you next time. Xxx

You were incredibly helpful and contributed to us having a pretty easy time while in New Zealand, Thanks RaD!

This is the 3rdtime this year we have used your company at 3 different locations and I have to say we have been really impressed with the consistently high standard of staff and quality of rentals you provide. It was interesting to add that while we were waiting for our pick up Roger ambled over to a competitor counter to see what a little run about would cost for the day, try $120!!
