Reliable Business Fleet Solutions With Handy Rentals

Many businesses face a fluctuating need for vehicles across their operations. Sometimes that need is greater than at other times, and the type of vehicle required can vary. Not having the right vehicle for the job can harm your earning potential. Instead, renting or leasing is a cost-effective option that allows businesses to adapt to short term or long term demands, without the need to buy. At Handy, our reliable business fleet solutions will keep you moving.

In this blog, we’ll explore the benefits of renting or leasing commercial vehicles with Handy Rentals. And how our knowledge and expertise can improve your business’s productivity, flexibility and cost management.

Reliable Vehicles From a Trusted Kiwi Business

We’ve been helping locals since 1989, when Handy began renting utes from Shell service stations. We’ve since expanded into a one-stop shop for renting and leasing quality commercial vehicles across New Zealand. And we’ve got some of the most modern business fleet solutions in the industry. 

We’ve been serving the community for decades, and our deep understanding of the industry shows. We enjoy the opportunity to talk through your unique requirements and craft the perfect solution for your needs​​​​​​​.

Locals That Care About Your Business
Handy Rentals understands the needs of businesses in New Zealand because we’re just like you. With eight locations spread across New Zealand, each is owned and operated independently. In this way, we can offer a personalised service by locals, for locals. We’re here to help you every step of the way.

Smooth, Stress-Free Business Fleet Solutions

Whether you need a truck one day and a small van another, for one day or a year, renting is a flexible way to pivot with your business needs. Best of all, you don’t have to think about anything else but getting your business on the road. 

Here’s what we take care of with each rental:

  • Warrant/Certificate of Fitness
  • Servicing and maintenance
  • Tyres and wheel alignments
  • Vehicle registration
  • Any unexpected breakdowns

Save time and effort while we look after everything, so you can get back to doing what you do best.

Reliable, Well-Maintained Vehicles
We’re dedicated to keeping your business moving. With our rigorous maintenance plans, all our trucks and vans are in optimal condition. Rest assured you’ll be driving a safety-tested, reliable vehicle. But in the unlikely event of something going wrong, don’t fret! If we can’t fix the vehicle in a timely manner we have additional vehicles available for a fast handover so you won’t experience any downtime.

Reliable On-Road Support
With 24 hour, 7 days a week roadside assistance included in your rental, we’re here for you in case of an emergency. That means if something happens, we won’t leave you hanging. And you’ll be on the road again in no time.

Insurance Covered
Rest easy knowing that insurance is included in the cost of the hire. All vehicles are covered by full comprehensive insurance with an excess payable. This excess may be reduced with an additional payment. 

Flexible Options For Your Business

No matter your task, you’ll get the right vehicle for the job at Handy Rentals. The flexibility to choose different types and sizes of vehicles means you can customise your transportation solutions. 

Our trucks range in size from small which have 9 – 12 cubic metres of cargo space, to XL with 21 – 23 cubic metres of cargo space. While our vans go up in size from small which have 5 – 6 cubic metres of cargo space, to large with 9 – 10 cubic metres of cargo space. Some locations even have larger vehicles to choose from if you need that little bit extra space. 

Vehicles come in varying layouts, with modern Bluetooth speakers, reversing cameras, automatic transmission, comfortable seats, air con, reliable motors and the option to add tail lifts. Choose from a six cubic metre cargo van to move your freight or tools, or a 20 cubic metre truck for whatever your business might need to move.

Talk with us about your requirements, and we’ll make sure you’ve got what you need.

Different commercial vans and trucks available for hire

Vehicles Your Staff Can Drive

All of our quality trucks and vans can be driven on a standard car driver’s licence and have automatic transmissions. That means there’s no need to worry that your staff won’t be able to operate them. Handy requires a full valid NZ, International or approved overseas driver’s licence to rent a vehicle. So if your staff can drive a car, they’ll easily handle our vehicles. The minimum driving age is 21 years. And conditions apply for those under 25. 

 Free Kilometres
All commercial customers come with at least 50 FREE kms per day. That means no sneaky excess fees. When you book, we’ll let you know if there will be any additional costs.

Easy Booking and Fast Pickups
We know you have a busy workload, so we believe in an easy booking process, and a fast and simple pick up process – so your drivers can get on the road quicker. 

Once you find what vehicle you need, book it for the time you want. Come in and collect the vehicle, do your mission and return it. It’s that simple. We also offer after hours drop off at most locations. There’s always free coffee and cold water provided on site.

A Dedicated Team Ready to Help
We’ve got a friendly team ready to work in partnership on your specific needs. When you use Handy, you’ll also get a dedicated account manager, which means faster processing times and someone on hand you can reach out to directly.

Enjoy Savings With a Handy Business Account
A Handy Business Account works best for businesses with frequent or long term transportation requirements. It works like this. You sign up for a business account where you’ll receive special rates for frequent and long term utility vehicle rentals for your business.

Short Term Rentals: Handy Rentals can provide you with a vehicle for a short term rental, this option is great for replacing vehicles that are off the road for maintenance or excess deliveries, freight requirements or if you’re experiencing an extra busy period. 

Medium Term Rentals: We can also provide you with a medium term rental, whether you’ve picked up a new contract, waiting on a vehicle to arrive or just need a bigger vehicle for your day to day business.

Leasing Options: Handy also provides longer term leasing options for our fleet, so if you have a bigger contract you need to fulfil but don’t want to commit to buying a vehicle this is a perfect option for you.

Renting or leasing with Handy is a breeze. When the project is finished, simply return the vehicle until your next job.
