Covit-19 Pandemic 2020

Update 14 May 2020

Dear Customers,

Following the NZ Governments announcement that the country will move to Level 2, we are pleased to announce that we are moving to less restrictive business practices while maintaining a focus on customer safety.

Our preference is to supply our customers who have pre-arranged equipment by phone or email but we understand that sometimes it is difficult to anticipate your needs, so will happily supply what you need without a booking.

Our procedures for order processing and payment remain contactless, and we will continue to thoroughly clean and sanitise all equipment between hires as prescribed under Level 3 Lockdown.

Your safety is of paramount importance to us. As we cannot provide paper copies of important health & safety information with equipment we refer you to our website for important information on how to safely use equipment hired from use. Please ensure you read and understand it before using the equipment.

Thanks again for your support.


Garry, Heather, Robbie, Geoff and Paul



We will also file all important Health & Safety information concerning the Covid-19 situation here.
