Moving Furniture

Moving house? Need a Trailer? Don’t have a tow car but need to move? Got a small budget? You’ll be needing Basic Rentals

Basic Rentals helps people move from A to B by hiring Box Body or Flat Deck Trucks, Vans, or Trailers  that can all be driven on a car licence (Class 1).
Trucks come with Free mileage. We are one of the only companies in Auckland that offers free mileage.

Transporting People

Need to move people around? Got a group of people that you need to transport? Got a small budget? You’ll be needing Basic Rentals

Basic Rentals helps people when they need a car to get them back up and running or if there is a family trip coming up and they just don’t have a big enough car.



Car prices range from $50 – $62 for a 24 hour period.  The longer the hire the cheaper the car gets. You can hire one of our Mischief range for as low as $16/day. Ask about long term hires to get an even lower price.

Sports events, church events, off to visit the family or heading down to the beach with some friends? We have 7 – 12 seaters. These will help you to get to all those events where you need something bigger than a standard car.
