Motorcycle Pick-up
Pick your bike up from Christchurch, Auckland, Queenstown, or other locations by special arrangement. 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.

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
We're on call 24/7.  Motorcycle Pick up and Dop-off hours are  between 8.30am and 5pm Monday to Friday, 9-2pm Saturdays, and by arrangement any other time.  We're a family business so we can be flexible and look forward to working with you on your flight arrival times etc.  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. 

If you wish to return your motorcycle to a different location:-

  • 14 days or more - no charge
  • Less than 14 days inter-island - NZD395 one-off charge (eg Chch to Auckland)
  • Less than 14 days within island - NZD295 one-off charge (eg Chch to Queenstown)

Long Distance
 If you're hiring for 6 days or less:-

  •   for every km over a daily limit of 350kms - 45c per km (eg if you travelled 1500kms over 4 days there would be an extra charge of NZD 45)

High Season is December to March inclusive, the weather during this time is very reliable, and Riding New Zealand is simply superb.  Our Low Season is April through to November inclusive when you can take advantage of great rates.  Please be aware that during  our winter months of June, July and August there is a possibility of mountain pass closures due to snowfall.
