A truck for hire is necessary when you need to move into a new house or shift large items. It is advisable to also have the right vehicle for the job, otherwise you can end up wasting precious time if you hire the wrong vehicle. 

This article will provide insights into everything you need to know about truck hire in Auckland. We believe you will find this information useful so let’s dive right in.

Know how much furniture you have.

You never know how much furniture and belongings you have until it’s time to move. When you are taking account of all your belongings, be sure you have everything accounted for before deciding on the truck to hire. 

In Auckland, the size or amount of items that you need to shift is a primary factor when determining hiring the correct truck. It is advisable to check the dimensions of the boxes and/or items that you are moving and match them to the dimensions of the truck you might need to hire. 

What size of truck to hire.

Once you know how much you have to pack, you can then decide the type of truck you would hire. Your moving checklist will determine the truck you hire based on the box sizes and furniture, but we advise that you hire a truck that is bigger than the calculated size to avoid unnecessary repeated trips. This will save you time and money.

Compare services and prices.

Before hiring a truck, we suggest you do a little research and not jump on the first deal you see.

Take your time to compare the prices and quality of service (this can be done by reading reviews) between truck rental companies in Auckland. The process helps you discover the best rates for moving and keeps you in line with your budget.

Once you are satisfied with the price and service, be sure to book ahead! Don’t wait to hire a rental truck on a moving day because the truck you want may not be available.

Insurance, terms of service, and other agreements.

This bit is an important part of any truck hire in Auckland. Make sure you know what each agreement covers for the period of hire. Find out if there is coverage on accidental damage to your possessions and the hire truck.

Knowing the necessary information will let you know what you will be responsible for in the case of any damage. Before signing any agreements, you need to understand your exposure.

Be safe when driving the truck.

Ensure that you drive the truck safely to avoid accidents or damage. 

Be cautious when driving a truck, take all the necessary precautions like adjusting mirrors, obeying speed limits and traffic laws, etc.

Furniture vans are super helpful when moving house, relocating items, or business deliveries. Moving vans are cost-effective and are also useful for moving boxes or items. Do you need to rent a furniture van for a trip across Auckland or within the country? We have vans that are capable of getting the job done.

THE HIGH TOP

Van 12 Seater

The hightop moving van is approximately 7 cubic meter cargo area, has an automatic transmission with back and side doors. 

The cost of hire is $95 per day*

THE LOW TOP

Toyota Hiace Cargo van for hire

The low top moving van is slightly different from the high top. It is approximately 6 cubic meters cargo area, has back and side doors, and comes with both manual and automatic transmissions.

If you are still wondering why you should choose a furniture van, we’ve come up with a few good reasons!

  • They are useful for relocations: usually, an overwhelming feeling comes with relocations. Figuring out how to transport fragile and valuable items can cause worry especially when you don’t want these items put in a large truck full of furniture and other large items. A furniture van can help ease your concern and guarantee control on how these items are handled during transit. 
  • They are great for self-moving: moving can be hectic which is why people hire professionals to get it done. These professionals work with the time and may try to rush the process of getting things done. When you hire a furniture van for self-move, you are in charge of packing the items. This gives you time to articulate and sort out items to load and unload at your own pace.
  • They are useful for businesses: if you have a business that requires carrying extra luggage from one location to another, these vans are cost-effective and practical to get the job done. They can also be used to deliver items to customers, transport goods ordered from retail stores or items acquired at an exhibition.
  • They can be used for holidays and trips: our vans are great for trips with the family, friends, or colleagues. Instead of squeezing all the gear into the family car or a trailer, you can hire a van. Fit bikes, surfboards, a bbq…all manner of gear for your camping or bach excursion.

Next time you are looking to transport items, self-move, or take a trip remember you can always hire a van to get the job done!

Mini Buses are essential for trips. Whether it’s a trip with the family, a school trip, a work function, or a sports team game, mini buses are useful and cost-effective. 

When planning a trip, it is easier to rent a minibus for the group instead of shuffling to make arrangements for different cars and following each other from location to location with hopes that one car does not lose its way.  Hiring a minibus is a convenient and reliable way to have the travel group together.

Renting a minibus in Auckland is not only a simple process, it also allows you to select amenities that would support the needs of whoever is in the group. At Auckland Vehicle Rentals, we know the ups and downs our customers have faced while renting a minibus which is why we are sharing insider tips with you to ensure you make the most of the trip. 

AVOID DISTRACTIONS.

To some customers, driving a minibus rental may seem like they are driving an unfamiliar vehicle. Put aside all distractions before you begin a trip, as the saying goes, safety first. 

So what do you do? Take it easy with your driving, avoid engaging in distracting behavior while travelling and utilize all driving signals. When there are distractions, you are at a slightly higher risk of an accident. 

Other key things that can help are: 1. keep your phone out of sight, and 2. ensure your passengers respect your ability to safely focus while driving.

KNOW THE FEATURES.

Be cautious of the vehicle’s features when you drive. Before starting the trip, get familiar with the minibus features because when you understand them, you can handle the vehicle with caution.

Adjust the mirrors to your best view to minimise blind spots and pay attention to the mirrors throughout the trip. Well-adjusted mirrors help you navigate around posts, gates, and even other vehicles. When it comes to parking the minibus, always take note of obstacles that make a spot unsuitable for parking.

REVERSING

This act requires a certain finesse to it. When you hire a minibus, it’s vital to keep safety in mind and avoid any collusion. Poor reversing visibility can cause an accident that can easily be avoided if the right precautions are taken.

The following are a few things to consider before reversing:

  • Make sure the rearview mirrors are clean and well-adjusted.
  • Avoid reversing over a long distance.
  • Keep an eye out for obstacles.
  • Do not reverse from a minor road to a major road.
  • Reverse slowly and check your mirrors on both sides.

 

You can also ask someone to guide you when you’re reversing. (Note: All our Premium 12 seater minibuses come with a backing camera to make reversing a lot easier.)

BE RESPONSIBLE.

Driving a minibus rental is a great responsibility for a lot of reasons. You can have a safe and smooth trip when you are responsible for the wheels. 

Fully loaded minibus rentals are quite heavy and their weight impacts momentum so slow down when braking or turning. Always drive carefully at a safe speed especially when there is traffic and sharp turns. Ensure you keep a distance from the car in front of you, especially large vehicles because it takes them longer to come to a stop.

New Zealand is known for its volcanic terrain and every so often, you’re likely to find yourself traveling up and down hills or mountain ranges when driving between main cities or towns. So, take it easy on the brakes and give them time to cool off.

The use of truck rental to transport furniture or a large item from one location to another is essential.

Being able to move on a budget is always a win-win situation. But how can you ensure that you are not going above your budget? You can do this by choosing a rental company that provides vehicles and services at an affordable price. 

Here are steps to choosing a furniture truck for hire:

BE PROACTIVE.

A little research goes a long way. Instead of rushing into a booking, go the extra mile, and find options. You can do this by finding companies online or talking to family and friends for referrals. Once you have found the company that meets your requirements, always book ahead! 

Being proactive by booking ahead is always a great idea because you are going to have a broader range of truck options than booking on short notice. Depending on the company you decide to hire, this step can save cost (you can get a discount).

THE SIZE MATTERS.

Before you hire a furniture truck, understanding the size of truck you need is essential, the last thing you want is to hire a furniture truck that is too small for your items.

In Auckland, the cost of your hire is determined by the size of your boxes. Not knowing the size of items before hiring a truck can cost you mileage, extra trips, and energy. When next you are looking to rent a furniture truck, keep in mind that size always matters.

PICKUP LOCATION.

The pickup location of the furniture truck hire is an important aspect to consider before hiring. Don’t just settle for the cheapest truck for hire seen online, this seems tempting but it’s not worth the stress. Thanks to the internet it’s easy to find a location before booking is much easier. There is nothing more stressful than booking a rental truck and realizing the pickup location is far away. If you are in Auckland, finding a vehicle rental that is close to you will save cost, fuel, and time.

SOME EXTRA COSTS COUNT.

Making extra payment for additional accessories when hiring a furniture truck can save time and enhance the convenience of moving. Loading items can be made easier with these specific features, for example, tail lifts are incredible and functional accessories that ease the struggle of lifting large objects. Some other extra costs to consider are insurance, hand trollies, furniture blankets, and moving straps.

Renting a minibus for road trips or to visit family, friends, and even to attend a work function is a fantastic idea to reduce travel costs.

Whatever the function, road trips have a way of opening people up to new experiences, and what better way to explore the beauty of Auckland than hiring a minibus from us? 

Are you planning a trip with your family/friends or a retreat with colleagues at work?

BUDGET

This minibus type is a great option for day trips, fishing trips, or camping. With 10 to 11 seaters, they are perfect for customers who travel light and want something affordable. 

Driving the 10 seater minibus is easy to navigate because it has a standard automatic transmission. 

If you are concerned about being cooped in a minibus up for a while without enough storage space, don’t worry the rental provides space for 10 passengers with a seat in the center front as the 11th. It also has windows all round.

This rental minibus has single air conditioning that provides a comfortable environment for all passengers. These minibuses has limited storage capacity at the rear.

STANDARD

The standard rental minibus is a 12 seater and a top pick in Auckland. These mini buses are comfortable, spacious and the most ideal for any trip.

Not everyone has a 12 seater minibus just parked in the garage ready to go at any time but that’s okay because we offer the best minibus hire service in Auckland. If you need a vehicle that would be perfect for school trips, sports teams, or long family road trips, this standard minibus is just what you need. 

The 12 seater minibus has some great features like the bench-style seats with a mix of three-point and lap belts, enough room for both your legs and bags (especially for the adults), automatic transmissions that make operating the van easier for the driver, and of course, single air conditioning. 

PREMIUM

If you are looking to hire a premium minibus in Auckland, our 12 seater rental is the newest of all the other types of buses, and has significant features that stand out.

This minibus has a 3-liter turbo-diesel powerplant which means it consumes less fuel, has a cheaper pump price, and produces fewer emissions. When using this van you don’t have to worry about the stress of reversing because our premium mini buses have a backing camera that makes the process easier.

Whether you’re taking a trip on a hot day or a chilly morning, the dual air conditioning/heating is available to guarantee comfort all the way. The minibus has Bluetooth stereos that keep the group entertained.

Enjoy your own space with the full heights seats that come separately for each passenger with three-point seat belts and a luggage barrier for safety. Although this is our most expensive minibus hire, it saves costs the further you travel.

This minibus is suitable for business trips or social occasions.

Have you ever wondered if you can use a restricted license to rent a vehicle in Auckland? Well, we can’t speak for every rental company because different rental companies have their policies.

Auckland Vehicle Rentals allow you to rent a vehicle with a restricted license as long as the license has not been suspended or revoked. If you have a license that has been canceled, suspended, revoked, or expired, you are not qualified to hire a car.

A New Zealand learner’s license is also not accepted.

If you are an international visitor in New Zealand looking to hire a vehicle, you must present a valid driver’s license which has been held for a minimum of 12 months before you may rent a vehicle, supported by your passport. 

The following are steps on how you can hire a vehicle with a restricted license:

  • Take a valid license and major credit card to the company; copies or photos are not accepted.
  • Present the license and credit card to the agent at the rental company you want to use.
  • If the process goes smoothly and you have been given a contract to sign concerning the hire, ensure that you read it carefully. Your insurance liability is most likely higher than a full licence holder. 

To answer the question to the topic, a restricted license can be used to hire a vehicle with Auckland Vehicle Rentals if you can meet the above requirements. For any questions, you can contact us today!
