What our customers say about us

“The vehicles are excellent..”

We have been using Christchurch Car hire every year for the last 8 years when we come to NZ for our annual 2 month holiday.  The staff are are so easy to deal with and nothing is a problem. The vehicles are excellent, always tidy and reliable. We have never had a problem with any vehicle we have hired. We would have no hesitation recommending them.

“Thank you for the excellent service…”

Just a short note to thank you for the excellent service received when we hired our car recently. We were both very impressed with the fast service when collecting the car and then on the return. The car went great and was well presented. We also greatly appreciated being dropped off at the motel. Thanks again.

Annie and John, Auckland

“Your staff were…the most helpful and pleasant”

I attempted to find a rental in the city at short notice. I had contacted a number of rental companies via internet, email and phone.  Your staff were without a doubt the most helpful and pleasant.
I could have used another company that were comparable on price but their attitude was such I would not even approach them again – you won out because of the your staffs great attitude. The vehicle I got was great, it was very tidy and so economical.

My wife and I are retirees from Western Australia and both in our late 70s. We have shared many holidays in New Zealand. We estimate we have travelled there 13 or 14 times since our first trip in 1989. Since 2005 however we have only stayed and travelled in South Island. It has always been our practice to rent a modest sedan for getting about and used self catering motel or holiday park accommodation. We do this out of preference for flexibility not solely for economy reasons. Until 2010 we always rented a vehicle from a small privately owned company in Christchurch - Trusty Car Rentals. We were there in 2010. When the initial damaging earthquake struck and returned again in late 2011. The owner of Trusty had been, like so many others, severely affected by the earthquake and subsequent downturn in visitors to Christchurch/South Island that he chose to cease trading and sell the business. We returned again in 2012 and opted to rent a vehicle from the new company which had acquired Trusty, namely, Christchurch Car Hire, located at 574 Wairakei Rd. Christchurch. They have provided us with our rented vehicle needs now on each of the four further visits we have made from 2012 until this year 2019 from which we have just returned after a month stay. On each occasion they have provided exactly the type of vehicle we have sought. The vehicles have always been impeccable. We have never had any form of mechanical problem (not even a puncture) despite some limited travel on unsealed roads and including a complete circumnavigation of South Island this last trip. The gentlemen we have dealt with - Adrian and Todd have always treated us with professional and friendly service extending their service to a prompt pickup from the airport on arrrival. We have been impressed particularly that this service has been provided at a rental rate showing very modest rise to that charged in 2012. We shall certainly seek their service on our next, as yet unplanned, trip and would happily recommend their service to others with needs similar to ours.

Thank you very much Steve and Adrian for your very professional service. We hired the 10 seat mini bus and it was a joy to drive down to Queenstown and back over our 9 day skiing holiday. Prompt response to all my queries and nothing was too much trouble for them. Provided kids car seats and detailed information on what to see on the way down to Queenstown and on our return took all of us to the airport to catch our flight home. Service was above and beyond and was very competitively priced against the larger groups. (managed to save a couple of hundred dollars). Would not hesitate to recommend these guys to all who want to hire a car/van/minibus and we will definitely be back next ski season. Kind personal regards, Vern & Family. 26/9/19.......... 🙂read more

I have had the most amazing time touring the South Island which was made possible by Christchurch Carhire. I wanted a small, economical, reliable car for one person over 28 days and I couldn’t have been happier. It was presented to a high standard, clean and everything worked as it should do. I loved the no nonsense approach and very pleased with the personal style of Adrian, Todd and Louise. I’ll be back for a further tour of the South Island and comforted that I can, from first experience, rely on Christchurch Carhire to put me on the road once more. Les/Englandread more

I spent a fair bit of time looking for minivans in New Zealand and they came in much cheaper than the competition... especially the big companies. Really great service and very friendly, no-nonsense staff, with pickup from the airport being very prompt.read more
