Collection address and hours 

Our address for hire collection and returns is:

12 Holder Place, Rosedale, Auckland 0632. (Just off Constellation Drive, right by the Motorway).

You can collect and return your items within these times (ensuring you stick to your 4 day hire period):

Monday - Friday: 8:30am - 5.30pm
Saturday: 9:00am - 4:00pm

Sunday 9.00am - 2pm

Please note you will be responsible for loading and unloading your items yourself ( we do not have staff there to assist you).

Also please make sure you take a vehicle that will accommodate your items - open backed Utes are not ideal, as most of our gear needs to be fully protected while in transit.
