Great personal service, My flight landed and when I switched my phone back on message immediately received to let me know Vaughan was waiting. At hand over Vaughan took me through a brief demo, car controls, indicators etc and while I would have figured it out pretty quickly I appreciated his care and attention to ensuring I understood everything. Great price for the 4 days too compared to other rentals I have used previously. Will definitely use again and have already recommended to others.



I researched car hire companies very carefully (because of previous poor experiences), and am SO pleased I chose Anzed. Vaughan's service was everything he promised - and more. The Mazda hatchback was perfect for our needs, and a joy to drive. But the main things were the personal touches. Pick-up at Christchurch was very efficient, and Vaughan made sure we knew the important things about driving in NZ, as well as the best places to get good pies. Little extras (vacuum flask) much appreciated. And when we returned the car, Vaughan drove us to our accommodation. I can't recommend Anzed highly enough! And do hope I'll be visiting New Zealand again.

We received exceptional, personalized service, from airport pickup to car return. Vaughn, the owner took time to offer guidance and suggestions - very valuable! The vehicle was in terrific shape and served us really well throughout the 14days use. 5 stars!!

What makes us different are things like hands on management, which brings flexibility and personalised service, meeting customers where they are at and providing for their needs.  They say there is no such thing as a dumb question, well I like to think there is no such thing as a dumb request.  Travelling often means having to prioritise what you can take and what you have to leave behind, at ANZED we have an extensive array of items we have available to 'Borrow', that's right, not upsells, but added values.  (From time to time we even offer 'Borrowing' of some of the Add-on items like Snow chains or camping equipment, so keep an eye out for that).  See our Service page for more details
Our goal is to provide service that works for you, meeting you where you need us and delivering you where you want to go, with late model tidy vehicles that are clean, safe, efficient and comfortable, in a variety to suit your requirements.
Don't wait for ages at the Rental car desk, don't accept the keys and being told -'it's out there', and most of all don't be the one left dragging your luggage halfway across town in the rain! Get priority service, where you are picked up at the door, shown around your car and set on you way in amazingly quick time.  Or be given the time of day to feel settled and confident in driving in a new place in a different vehicle to what you are used to. If you have a question, please ask,  At ANZED it is all about you.
Oh, and all our cars have a spare wheel.  No being left stranded on the side of the road, even if it is a beautiful, isolated spot.
