Our hours are 9:00 am to 5:30 pm Monday to Friday in Wellington. Until 5pm in Auckland. Equipment is kept in Wellington but we can ship to Auckland with a few days notice.
We are closed on NZ Public Holidays.
Open outside of these hours by special arrangement only.
We are located at 25 King St, Newtown, WELLINGTON – midway between the Basin Reserve and Wellington Hospital.
We also have a street frontage at Level 1, 80 Adelaide Rd, Newtown and 130 Khyber Pass Road, Grafton, Auckland but this is mainly for the Sales side of the business. Equipment can shipped for pick up in Auckland with a few days notice. Auckland gear must be made very clear at your first contact with us.
King St has good parking and is closest to the rental company area of our premises.
Pick Up and Drop Off
Where bookings allow we can accommodate pick up of gear the afternoon before your hire and return the morning after the hire period.
Check with our staff when you make your reservation.
We do not offer a delivery option as the hirer must sign for gear and pay at pick up.
Payment is required as the equipment is collected.
We accept cash, eft-pos, and credit card.
We do not accept phone credit card transactions – they must be in house on the eft-pos terminal.
An alternative is to deposit funds directly into our bank account.
We can provide a GST invoice and bank details a few days in advance of your hire ( by email ) and check for the funds to clear.
Insurance cover is mandatory. We cover rental hire up to $20,000 of equipment with a 10% charge ( ex GST ) but beyond this we encourage larger camera kits to seek insurance quotations and cover from established industry specialty brokers.
The 10% charge is a premium and an excess of $750 for each and every loss/damage still applies.
We also require photo ID such as a driver’s licence or passport.
The prices on the web site exclude insurance and GST.
Most of the equipment is offered on a 3 for 7 basis ( weekly rate is 3 times the daily rate ) and is charged for from time out until time back.
The hire period is determined when you make your reservation with us.
Generally a day’s hire is midnight to midnight, not a floating 24 hour period.
