Questions we get asked a lot.

Who is Johnson ?

Our neighbors Jack Russel

Why don't you add extras to the price ?

Just like you we have been stung many times by adds that say, "only $12 a day" car hire. When you add the peak season levy, the low insurance excess charge, delivery fee, after hours surcharge...blah..blah..blah it now costs you $99 a day + GST.


So just to change it up, we though ... HEY. Lets just advertise what it costs. 

A Novel idea right!

Why only Weekly rates ?

So we are a small business. we don't have a massive fleet of cars, we want to keep our prices REAL. 

We have found that one week or monthly rental is the best way to combine all of these factors and still offer you a great product and at a realistic price.

Do I pay anything if I have an accident?

When you hire the car we deduct 2 weeks rental as a Bond. 

This is held to cover cost of repair or excess with our insurance company in the unlikely event of an incident.

If the cost of repair exceeds the bond amount, we may deduct the balance of excess amount to cover the repairs.


This will be.


If you are at fault:-

Under 25 years of age $2,300

Over 25 years of age $1,600


If you are not at fault:-

Under 25 years of age $750

Over 25 years of age $500


So what if I want to rent for more or less than a month ?

That's fine.

As we are a small company, we specialize in long term rentals. We have priced our product accordingly.

Rates are charged in week blocks and rounded up to the next week of hire with a minimum of 4 weeks hire.


Example:

Hire for 24 days - rate is 4 x weeks rental

Hire for 32 days - rate is 6 X weeks rental


This still works out at a very competitive rate and you are a real winner of you intend to hire for a at least a month or for a number of months !
