Had an awesome experience with the Pegasus South Auckland crew during our recent day trip. Great vehicle at competitive price. Very friendly and helpful office administrator right from first phone enquiry, to pick up. Then when we phoned to say we were stuck in traffic and would struggle to drop the car and catch our train back to Hamilton they arranged for one of the guys to give us a lift to the station on his way home. Extremely grateful for this amazing service - will definitely be recommending to others.

Hands down brilliant service. From inquiry phone call with the office person, she was amazing, friendly and knowledgeable. To the pick up of the truck from their premises in Takanini. Everything felt super easy, quick and just comfortable. The prices are pretty aligned with other companies but it's the exceptional service that would draw us back. I would recommend this company and branch to anyone
