That is the sort of testimonial we aim for (and, for more, see below!).  But how do we get such testimonials?

To us, it's simple.  Buzzy Rental Cars prides itself on customer service.  Our customers know we will be there when expected, the car will be clean, really tidy and presentable, and it will be reliable.  We want our customers to come back to us next time they're in town.

Buzzy Rental Cars is an independent, New Zealand-owned rental vehicle operator based in Wellington, New Zealand. Our vehicles are available for use anywhere in New Zealand.  Since mid-2015 we also represented New Zealand Rent a Car in Wellington, as well as Economy Car Rentals.  This means it is easy for our hirers to pick up here, leave it there!  

We offer Wellington to Auckland rental cars on a one-way basis, as well as other cities, including Christchurch and Napier!  We will only work with other operators whose service is just as good as ours.

Our goal is to give our customers what they want, what they expect and for their experience with Buzzy Rental Cars to be an excellent one.  Buzzy Rental Cars offers highly-presentable, pre-loved vehicles that are carefully maintained so they are reliable for our customers.  They are fully-serviced, fresh and clean and ready for your enjoyment and use. They are thoroughly checked between hires.  Each vehicle also has an official safety check every six months for a Certificate of Fitness (same as a vehicle Warrant of Fitness test, but more frequent and stringent) and not by the local garage (good as they may be!), but by Vehicle Testing New Zealand.  For more details on our range of vehicles, see Our Vehicles page.

For consumer protection, we are members of the Rental Vehicle Association, which means we have accepted the Association’s requirement to provide customers with safe, pleasant journeys and to operate to industry-approved standards. The Association’s Code of Ethics require that we act in the best interests of the public, and to conduct our business in a fair and ethical manner.

And, should anything go wrong with the car while it is in your hands, the car is covered the 24/7 roadside service offered by the AA (Automobile Association).  

Buzzy Rental Cars prides itself on high standards and value-for-money. Buzzy is all about clean, reliable, presentable and affordable vehicles, complemented with friendly, helpful service. These are not just words! “We can do anything around here”, says John Stokes, who has a strong tourism background and a successful rental car industry record before starting Buzzy Rental Cars.

Had great service from John at Wellington. He sorted out a great little modern car for my daughter to use to come home for the Easter weekend. It was done at the last minute and there were no hassles and the pricing was right. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services. As a concerned dad he listened and looked after my concerns. A great weekend was enjoyed!! Thanks Heaps!! - Shayne Massey

I have been using car rentals for approximately a year when I am in Wellington on business. John has got to be the most efficient and friendliest person in Customer Service. Nothing is ever to much of a problem. Looking for a car to rent you cannot surpass the service you will recieve (sic) at Wellington. - Lee68
The most helpful car hire man EVER. He showed me how to use the gear lever and foot pedal hand brake (I’d never seen them before) and took away my baggage trolley as well. The cars may not be the newest but they are clean, full of petrol and the price is very fair. They even put the back seat flat as I told them on the booking form I had a large box and it was all ready for me when I arrived. - Rcaroe
Fantastic, Phoned this place just before Easter weekend, they had a spare car, picked up the vehicle, didn’t charge us for the first day as he wasn’t open on the Sunday. Just a fantastic guy, Good car too. No problem would diffiently (sic) be renting again and recommending. Cheers - John Richards
