Motorcycle Pick-up or Drop-off
Our Head Office and Main Base is located near Christchurch, your  gateway to the glorious Southern Alps, offering arguably the best motorcycling in the world. So if you fly into Christchurch we can also pick you up from the airport or hotel, and talk about your trip over a 'cuppa' before you depart. All of our rentals and tours start from Christchurch, but it is possible to finish at other locations around New Zealand, see restrictions for details.

Safety is of paramount importance in our business, so it's important to know that you've chosen a reputable company with compliant, trustworthy machines for hire, and that's us for sure.  Before you depart we'll go through the NZ Road Rules with you , show you a safety video, answer any questions, and of course there's the usual Rental Agreement to sign. We'll help you familiarise yourself with the vehicle until you are totally confident.

Hours of Business and Rental Period
Your Rental is based on a 24-hour period. For example (eg 11am to 11am). We're on call for assistance 24/7.  Motorcycle Pick up and Drop-off hours are  between 8.30am and 4.30pm Monday to Friday, weekends by arrangement.  We're a family business so we can be flexible and look forward to working with you on your requirements.  If you're flying long distance we recommend a good night's sleep to get over your jet-lag, and we can book you in to some great lodgings. 

We have tried to keep these to a minimum:-
Re-location Fees
There is a minimun hire of 7 Days for any relocation and a charge of NZD 495.00

Long Distance Fee

  •  7+ days hire - no charge

  •  1-6 day hire - daily limit 350km - 45c per km thereafter (eg 1500kms travelled over 4 days there would incur an extra charge of NZD 45)

High Season is December to March inclusive, the weather during this time is very reliable, Riding New Zealand is simply superb.  Our Low Season is April through to November inclusive when you can take advantage of great rates, but please be aware that during  June, July and August there is a risk of some mountain pass closures due to snowfall. 
Rental Accessories
We have a large range of Full-face helmets, Open-face helmets, waterproof Jackets, waterproof Pants, Gloves, Boots, GPS, Comms, Go-pros etc for hire at extremely affordable rates.  Just tell us what you need if you are unable or don't want to bring your own Gear.
