Reliable On-Road Support

With 24/7 roadside assistance, we’ve got your back — so you can make the most of your time.

It is normal to say someone is “professional” but that can mean coldly detached regardless of how efficient and effective they are. The guys today were definitely professional, but they were also warm, friendly, and willing to help.

We were very well looked after, and the only reason I am giving them five stars is because I can’t give them six. Job well done, guys.

Easy booking process, modern vehicle and very friendly service with the convenience of being located at the petrol station. Recommend the small truck with lift.

It's an awesome service that you guys provide easy straight forward and customer service is too good.

Easy to book. Would recommend to anyone looking for a moving truck. Would happily use again for moving.

My second rental from the Hamilton, Avalon drive branch, Shri gave me a good deal and was easy to deal with, I definitely recommend Handy Rentals as your first option for furniture truck rentals.

Great value, easy to deal with, and excellent customer service. Would definitely recommend!

The customer service was excellent, and the process was very efficient. We would not hesitate to recommend Handy Rentals, Upper Hutt, and we appreciate that the team went the extra mile.
