All of our trucks are well maintained and fuel efficient. Most of our trucks have a reverse camera for safer backing.
Large Vehicle: These trucks are longer(over 4.5m) and taller (0ver 3m) compared to a car, and the steering is designed to make tight turns. We recommend taking corners extra wide and watching out for low hanging trees and road signs. Do not try to get in a covered carpark or drive through food outlets. When reversing this type of vehicles, we recommend an extra person get out to watch the back of the vehicle for the driver.
Keep your full driving licence on you at all times while driving.
Minimise distractions: Don't let passengers distract you. Keep your eyes on the road. Before taking off, set up the vehicle with the correct driving position including driver’s seat, steering wheel and rearview mirrors.
Buckle up: Everyone in the vehicle must wear a seatbelt.
Keep left: In New Zealand we drive on the left hand side of the road.
Don’t drive tired and avoid alcohol: Be well rested before your trip and avoid alcohol.
Keep your distance: Keep a generous following distance and increase it as you speed up.
Speed limit: Read road signs to make sure you drive under the speed limit. If the vehicle you hired is a truck, your open road speed limit is 90km/hr. Also drive to the conditions of the road; as weather and road surface changes can change the visibility and stability of the car.
Set up your phone on hands free (driving while using a phone is illegal in NZ). Work out how to use your air conditioning system, stereo and set up GPS unit before taking off.
Plan ahead: Check the weather and road closures before your travel.
