…we really appreciate your excellent service and rental of the Camry. I pumped the tyres up to 36psi which helps the handling and improves the general wear. The Camry was the right size car for the five of us.
…the chiller bag and flask came in very handy.
My wife's brother, will definitely recommend you to his colleagues and friends back home
Wishing you and the family all the best and good health for the New Year.
Nelson & Susan, Dec 2010, Vermont, Victoria, AUSTRALIA
…Thanks to you too for helping to make our stay an easier and better one, with all your great support, driving advice and directions.
We look forward to going over to NZ again in the near future :)
Fazli & family, Dec 2010
…If I do go back to South Island again, I'll definitely make sure to rent a car from you again. Thanks a lot for your kind advice and help!
Esther Hwee, Dec 2010, SINGAPORE
…Thank you for your help, and lending us all those so important things.
We are grateful.
I've already passed your contact to a friend
Hermi & family, Dec 2010
…We've had midday temperatures back here at home of minus 3c.
Everything went very smoothly with the car hire and your provision of all the extra picnic things and telephone was greatly appreciated as always. They are the things that make all the difference. We had a great holiday and look forward to seeing you again. As we have said before if we have any friends coming to Christchurch we will recommend you.
Wishing you and your family a very Happy Christmas (hopefully a lot warmer than ours)
Howard and Marion, Dec 2010, UNITED KINGDOM
…We are very happy with the car as well as the service that you have provided.
May Hong, Dec 2010
…thanks for getting us a good car. Wish we had more time to chat yesterday. We had a really enjoyable trip.
Johnny and Jenny, Dec 2010
…We have just returned home after a 26 hour flight to the snow and ice after 27 degree temperatures during our stay in the North Island. I am now catching up with correspondence (and shivering).
…it was good to meet you again and we look forward to hiring from you again when we are come to Christchurch in December 2011. Hopefully it will be for a bit longer next time.
Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year.
Alan & Christine, Nov 2010, North Somerset, UNITED KINGDOM
…Thanks for …all your help especially with the GPS and all. We had a great time in NZ - the drives were beautiful! We'd definitely love to go back to visit again someday.
Take care in the meantime and hope to see you again. :)
All the best,
Nadine, Nov 2010
…It was a good car and serves us well. Also, the little things you provided certainly made the difference. We'll definitely keep ANZED and you in mind when we visit next.
Yong Hee, Nov 2010
…It's been a pleasure renting a car from you and for bearing with us and trusting us when we did not have our licences on arrival. We will definitely recommend our friends to you if they ever plan to go to NZ. Well, I believe many of my wife's friends will, after she posted her breathtaking scenery photos on facebook :-)
Yes, you got the names correct, it was Marcus and Amanda who went on a honeymoon (rented from your company years ago and recommended us). Will convey yr regards to them.
Sam and Angie, Nov 2010
…It was also great to see you again after a break of 1 year. …we did not land much this year and there was not a single fish sighted on the Ashley, either early in season or due to the earthquake.
Take Care and God bless.
Max, Nov 2010
…And thank you so so much for renting us a very very reliable car which took us through strong wind... heavy rain and slight snowing. Our 4WD, even though it was a “budget” series, has served us very well and I believe its all because of your committment to provide to your customers a very well maintained car.
And wow! you actually put RainX on every car windscreen that you have, unbelieveable as it means you actually went an extra mile in providing us a SAFER car when driving through heavy rain.
Thanks for your personalised service, which immediately put us at ease on the 1st day when meeting up with you.
...will definately rent cars with you when we come back to finish off what we had left of the southern island in a few years time. :)
Take care too and God bless!
Boen and Lilian (1st till 13th Oct 2010)
…Just a quickie to say I hope your staff and family did not suffer any injuries/damage during the recent earthquake. And to let you Kiwis know that your mates across the ditch are thinking of you. Even if you do continue to beat us in rugby. For the time being!
Thanks for the rental car.
Mark, Sep 2010, Haberfield, NSW, AUSTRALIA
…Thanks for your excellence service too.
We all have a wonderful time there.
We will come again.
Cher Ann, Sep 2010, SINGAPORE
…Once again, we just wanted to thank you for making the rental, pick up and drop off process so easy on our recent trip to Christchurch.
Hope you and family are safe and well.
Heather Billington, Sep2010,, Auckland
…Hope you remember us from way back in December '06. The recent news brought you to mind and we do hope that all is OK with you.
We have the happiest memories of your warm and friendly reception when we visited your lovely country. It does have just one flaw though - it's too far away from Ireland!
With kindest regards,
Joan & John Finkel, Sep 2010, Dublin,
…We are very happy with the car & the added service provided by yourself, including the explanation of NZ road rules, snow chain demonstration & directions to the supermarket!
The ski racks were easy to use (especially when compared to the other types which require strapping / buckling - no easy feat when it is freezing cold & wearing ski gloves).
Will be happy to recommend your company to others who are travelling to NZ Sth Island. All the best to you also...
Poh Lyn, Ashley & Sami, Aug 2010, Rhodes, NSW, AUSTRALIA
… Thank you for your excellent service once again. We are now safely back in Australia, and I hope the car and its contents are safely back with you. The car went very well and I hope we parked it in the right place at the airport carpark.
We'll definitely be in touch next time we are coming to NZ.
Susan & Peter, Aug 2010, Highvale, Brisbane, QLD, AUSTRALIA
…Just touched down in Singapore. Thank you for your good service and driving advice that made our trip so enjoyable.
I am starting to miss the car already!
Thank you once again and till we meet again.
Donald, Jul 2010, SINGAPORE
…Thank you so much for your good advice while we were in NZ. Will definitely look for you again when we are back in NZ!
Richard & Jocelyn, Jul 2010
…Thanks again for the rentals and see you next year.
Brendan, Jul 2010, Carlingford, NSW, AUSTRALIA
…Thanks for your prompt email and refund for the tyre.
I always like to know that the car is returned safe and sound.
The charge for the windscreen chip repairs seems fair, thank you.
The car went well, the ski box was fantastic and we enjoyed your thoughtful extras such as the flask and cooler bag.
The loan of the SIM card for the phone was also very helpful, thank you.
We will recommend you to our friends travelling to NZ/skiing and will use ANZED next time we come to NZ.
Richard, Jun 2010, Warragul, VIC, AUSTRALIA
…The car went very well and look forward to our next visit to NZ.
David, Jul 2010, Balgowlah Heights, NSW, AUSTRALIA
…Thank you for everything you do for us each time we visit, from the pick-ups and drop offs at the airport to the eskies and mobile phone. Your service is second to none and it is always a pleasure to do business with you…
We are in Queenstown tonight after having spent the last 5 nights in Cardrona with great weather, especially the last 2 days. George had a great time skiing again and is advancing all the time with ski jumps now part of his repertoire.
We are leaving for Australia tomorrow.
We hope to see you again whenever we visit Christchurch next.
Bill, Carolyn and George, Jul 2010, Wollongong, AUSTRALIA
…the car was trusty as always. We will see you when we are in Christchurch again.
Kind regards and care
Lisa, Jul 2010, Kyrrajong Hills, NSW, AUSTRALIA
…Your extra key is in a envelope at the reception of Sudima Hotel. We did our best to keep the inside of the car clean as it was very muddy where we went. Also, you should check that we had returned the snow chains in proper condition.
Thank you. Great service
Rob Pilling, Jul 2010, QLD, AUSTRALIA
…Thanks. You make life easy.
Michael, Jul 2010, Asquith, NSW, AUSTRALIA
…We will be back next year and we will definitely use you again
Paul and Nicola, Jun 2010, Kent, ENGLAND
…It's been our pleasure to meet up with you. It will definitely not be our last time seeing you. We enjoyed our holiday so much that we are thinking of travelling to NZ again so do expect us in the near future.
Thanks to your wonderful car and we had no issue with it at all. Have a great day.
Aslinda, Jun 2010
…the car was great n the family had an enjoyable n memorable vacation. Will definitely pass on your contact to friends visiting South Island.
Ernest, Jun 2010
…Garry and Fran couldn’t get over your car rental service, they were thrilled that you offered them a lot of extras eg. thermos, eski bag and various other items. They said you were just so friendly and couldn’t have been anymore helpful.
Esther & Alan, Jun 2010 Perth, W AUSTRALIA
…Thanks for the excellent service given to us. We were very touched by your thoughtfulness, such as, the provision of rice cooker, maps, SIM cards and thermal bag.
The lucky car was fantastic and definitely served us well throughout our journey…
Once again, thank you for making our holiday an enjoyable and pleasant one. We should be back soon as we have yet to visit places like Dunedin and Milford Sound…
Andy, May 2010, SINGAPORE
…I am sorry we had to leave NZ early, as we were having a lovely relaxed time and with a little car that was perfect for our needs
It was a huge shock to receive the bad news from home…
Thank you so much for the refund and next time we visit NZ we will certainly know where to rent our car.
Once again many thanks and best wishes
from Bryan and Margaret Priest May 2010 Goonellabah, NSW, AUSTRALIA
ps.. my son wants to visit NZ to go skiing latter in the year and wonders if you have four wheel drives to rent.
…We thank God that we made the right decision to choose your car rental company. Though we did not know each other, we felt safe in relating to you. We like your friendliness and honest feedback. In addition, the rental car was in good condition, clean and tidy when it was delivered to us. All these made our trip to New Zealand more memorable.
We do not know when we will visit NZ again. However, if there are friends or relatives visiting NZ, we will definitely recommend your good services to them.
Thanks again with warmest regards
Paul & Tess, May 2010
…Many thanks for your excellent service…
Cheers from Perth
Sue & Brendan, Apr 2010
We had a great time in New Zealand. Thank you so much for your attention: you own the best rental car agency in Christchurch!
We have mailed you your phone chip on Tuesday, April 20, while still in NZ. It was sent from Rotorua.
Please let me know if you don't get it.
Aldo, Apr 2010, Campinas – SP, BRAZIL
... We would use your car rental business again.
Robyn, Apr 2010, Brisbane, AUSTRALIA
...Thank you for your kind service, we will definitely contact you again when we need a rental car again and I have given your details to my other friends who may travel in NZ soon. Hope they will get the great chance to enjoy your service!
Wenwen, Apr 2010, Hamilton, ON, CANADA.
…we enjoyed our trip, appreciated your help…
Penny, Apr 2010, HONG KONG
…thanks for the wonderful reception and service! We enjoyed our NZ trip and do look forward to going back one day.
Betty and Darren, Apr 2010
…It was great meeting you again, and once we get organized for next year, I will certainly get in touch with you. Great car and great service. Once again, thanks
Murray, Apr 2010, Ormeau, Brisbane, QLD, AUSTRALIA
…Home safely and now recovered from the long journey. The rental car went very well for my travelling around Dunedin and Central Otago. These things (faulty fuel/air sensors) happen with cars… Rest assured that I’ll still be happy to rent from you on my next visit, whenever that may be.
We had a wonderful holiday, particularly when Liz, Margaret and I had the last week together in Bay of Islands. We managed the trip to Cape Reinga and Ninety Mile Beach, places I had always wanted to visit. The whole holiday was full of such memorable moments and we look forward to the next visit.
Very best wishes to you and your family,
Fiona , Mar 2010, Dundee, UK
…It's been wonderful to meet you again. Both the two rental cars were great!..
Zait, Mar 2010
…Just a quick email to say thank you so much for the wonderful service. Both my husband and me thought the personal service that you offered helped to make the start of our trip really enjoyable. I have passed on your details to other family and friends and will be happy to recommend your car rental business to those I know travelling via Christchurch.
Thanks again and take care.
Pam McCulloch, Mar 2010, QLD, AUSTRALIA
…We are not sure when the next time will be but certainly we'll be in touch then.
Roger & Sandra, Mar 2010, Bedfordshire, UK
Thanks a lot. We will certainly recommend you to our friends. A most enjoyable experience.… Just posted this on tripadvisor.com, Bob (3. Re: Car rental Mar 08, 2010, 4:46 AM)
“After reading all the complaints about car rental companies in Christchurch and looking at the prices, I decided to give Teddy at Anzed Car Rentals a try. He has older but well maintained cars. We got a Nissan Pulsar 4 door.
What a pleasant experience. First off, when you get to his office which takes only a few minutes from the airport (he picked us up in minutes), he goes over every rule and peculiarity about New Zealand road rules. We live 1/2 the year in New Zealand and 1/2 in USA and have driver's licenses in both places. I can tell you that he covered everything you will need. Next, he includes a chilly bin (ice chest) at no extra charge, freezing blocks and a nice thermos. Maps and booklets, and good advice
You can reach him virtually any time by phone. We forgot our camera in the car. By the time we had landed in Palmerston North (about 2 hours) he had already phoned us and made arrangements to have it posted to us.
And no, Teddy is not posting this - you can check my other posts and you will find some not quite so complimentary. So, give Teddy a try - you will be glad you did if economy and service are important to you.”
Bob, Mar 2010, USA & NZ
…Just in the lounge at Brisbane airport waiting for our flight back to the UK.
It was a pleasure doing business with you again. IF we return to Christchurch we will certainly rent from you again.
All the best
Humphrey, Mar 2010, Altrincham, UNITED KINGDOM
…Thank you very much. My parents were very happy with your assistance and wonderful service as we always have been. They liked the rental car very much.
We might be seeing you again this winter and will keep you posted if we do come again.
Bill and family, Mar 2010, Wollongong, NSW, AUSTRALIA
…Comparing xxx with Anzed is like comparing a Ford with a Roll-Royce. Anzed's treatment of us has spoiled us for anything else.
If xxx was our first experience of renting an older car, we would regard it as very good. But it is not in the same class as Anzed….
Is there anything I can do to spread the word about the exceptional service provided by Anzed? You have loads of testimonials already and I don't think Trip Advisor cover car rental yet.
But if yet one more testimonial helps, here goes:
“I strongly recommend anyone thinking about hiring a car from Christchurch Airport to consider Anzed as an excellent yet much cheaper alternative to the big-name car rental companies.
Teddy, the very personable proprietor, will meet you in person and drive you to his office nearby. There he will ensure you are familiar with NZ traffic rules, one of which is strange even to keep-left Brits and dangerous if it is not explained carefully.
He will supply you with all the maps and guides you need and some that you just might need. And he will also offer to lend you entirely free of charge a range of enormously useful items from his Aladdin's cave of equipment: camp chairs, cool bag, ice packs, CDs and, best of all, a New Zealand mobile phone.
I have rented cars before in NZ and in Oz and the US and in many European countries but I have NEVER experienced such a warm, person-to-person car hire service, nor have I had elsewhere such confidence in the mechanical reliability of the vehicle. If you really want this year's model, go to one of the world-wide names because Anzed's cars are not brand new, but if you want a beautifully serviced and maintained car that perhaps won't turn heads but will save you NZ$40 a day or more, try Teddy.
One day, all car rental companies will be like Anzed.”
If I can do anything else to help, please tell me.
Fond regards (from Fran too)
David, Mar 2010, Ashbourne, UK
…thank you for the excellent service – the little Sunny went well and the mobile phone is a great help!,
Sorry that I didn’t get to meet you again this time…
Peter, Mar 2010, One Tree Hill, South Australia
…thanks again for your help. Yes, all went well and the car gave good service. Much appreciate the refund (for the one day early return). Left you a can of fuel, which is full. I think I may have told you that I had to buy a little camp stove as they would not fly mine to Christchurch, and even if they had, with the concerns they raised about a faint fuel smell ( it was completely empty), I might not have been able to bring it back. So a lesson learnt. But the fuel was a spare and someone else may well want. Maybe it will still be there in Nov when I hope to get back with Bryce for some walking.
Hope all continues to go well.
Thanks and regards
Terry, Feb 2010, Ocean Grove, VIC, AUSTRALIA
…Many thanks to you also for making our trip a memorable one, even though it was a short stay. Wish could stay there longer...
Nevertheless thanks again for informing us the different roads rules in NZ, I do find it very helpful. And of course the free loan of the pre paid card too!
My family members will be visiting NZ in the near future, rest assured that I will recommend them your great service and be sure to give them good discount ya..haha..
Sofian, Feb 2010, SINGAPORE
…It was a pleasure meeting you and renting the car. All the positive comments from former customers were well deserved and we have to say that this was our most personal and friendliest car rental experience on all of our travels. Getting a cooler bag, CD's to listen to on the road and a thermos was above and beyond any expectations. The rental car performed very well and took us to wonderful sights all over the island. We highly recommend you to our friends here in California and to our friends in Little River too.
Thanks again for contributing to our wonderful vacation,
Lothar and Melanie, Feb 2010
Rocklin, CA, USA
…I am glad that you were satisfied with the condition of the car. I had a good time apart of the little incident at the very end. Could you please mail me an approval of the paid 200 dollars for the repairing and with an explanation what had to be done. I'll talk to my insurance at home if they cover that on my third part insurance
thank you very much.
many greets from Picton
Larissa Mueller, Feb 2010, Zug, SWITZERLAND
…We are sorry, but we lost one of the keys. Not sure where, but probably in a Motel room so hopefully they will call you when they find it. Otherwise we will pay for a replacement.
All was well with the car and it is in the Airport Delta ready for pick up. Thanks for all the info and tips. I was able to help my uncle find the overdrive button on his hire car thanks to your training.
Roger, Feb 2010, North Epping, AUSTRALIA
…the car was excellent, didn't miss a beat...
Thought you should have your company name & phone number on the back window of the car like all the other companys. Free advertisement.
Many thanks for your service & loan of your cooler bag will recommend you to any one we know who travels to the South Island.
John & Joan, Feb 2010, Ocean Reef, WA, AUSTRALIA
…We will happily keep your offer in mind for our next trip to NZ and will come to you first. You provided us with courteous and personalised customer care and that makes a big difference when it comes to dealing with rental car agencies.
I hope all goes well for you this year.
With Kind Regards
Michael and Kim, Feb 2010, ST Lucia, W AUSTRALIA
…Thank you for the excellent service. We would be happy to hire a car from Anzed Car Rentals again.
Syma, Feb 2010, VIC, AUSTRALIA
…we all have a wonderful holiday in South Island and in fact feel sad when we return the car to you; my girls are asking me to change our car to one like yours.
We’ll surely recommend you to any of our friends when they need a rental car.
Do keep in touch
CC WOO, Jan 2010, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND
…As always it was great and we truly appreciate your service. This car is really good for our family with too many suitcases! And we will be back again for Christmas 2011. It sounds far away but time flies…
Thanks in advance and I hope you have a great year!
Mark, Andria, Saskia and Nikolai, Jan 2010, The Hague, The Netherlands
…yes, the People Mover was absolutely fine, and it was all smooth at the Greymouth end too.
Good to meet you also, and I'm sure we'll be back down there sometime.
Chris, Jan 2010, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND
…It was a pleasure renting a car from you
Oskar, Jan 2010, Stockholm, Sweden
…we didn’t let the weather spoil anything. The South Island is magnificent.
Will definitely be in touch the next time we are over.
Janet, Jan 2010, Brisbane, AUSTRALIA
…We’ll be back I’m sure!!!
Richard, Jan 2010, Remuera, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND
…Thanks again for a great service. The car was fab! Have a good year and we will see you in December.
Gabrielle and Mike, Jan 2010, BAHRAIN
…Thanks…Our third hire from you and we were very pleased with the X-Trail. Knowing our car hire is straightforward means we can enjoy our holiday even more. Enjoy your summer (we are enduring our coldest and snowiest winter for 30 years!) and see you later in the year.
Happy New Year
Howard and Marion, Jan 2010, Amersham Bucks, UK
…I am sure you will see us again. We were very happy with your friendly service and all the little extras you provided - cooler, thermos, CDs, SIM card and brochures. We will definitely be renting from you any time we return to your part of the world.
Kay, Jan 2010, Ipswich, QLD, AUSTRALIA
…Thanks…The 4wd SUV gave us no problem at all. Thanks for the guidance and device and the esky bag , flask and phone all of which was very useful in making our trip comfortable.
Josh, Jan 2010, NSW, AUSTRALIA
…And thanks again to you for looking after us. We really appreciate it.
Lilian and Peter, Jan 2010, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND
…Yeah the rental served me well. Sorry about the dent I will pay for it. Bill it to my card. Thanks
James, Jan 2010, a KIWI in JAPAN
…Jonathan and I have just arrived home after our wonderful trip around NZ and want to say thank you very much for your input.
The rental car was absolutely great and all the extras were very muc appreciated. It was wonderful to deal with such an efficient firm and to feel we had great personal service.
I am still enjoying the Bee Gees tape and am grateful for the extras which no other Rental firm provides. We will be back in NZ in a couple of years and will be contacting you, once again, for another of your cars.
Happy New Year and very best wishes,
Sue, Jan 2010, Whetsone, London. UK
…Yes the car was great and the thermos and cool pack were much used and appreciated.
We will have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who is holidaying in NZ
We had a wonderful holiday in your beautiful country.
Thanks and have a successful 2010
Ian and Christine , Jan 2010, Snug, AUSTRALIA
…It had been a very rewarding holiday, all 1,999.5 km of it in 7 days. The car made the drive enjoyable. We would definitely recommend Anzed Car Rentals to all we know.
I have yet to cover Dunedin and the northern parts, so I guess I will go down to Christchurch again.
Chee, Jan 2010
…First of all thanks for providing 8 seater MPV, without which this wonderful NZ trip would not be possible. The MPV was in good condition and all of us had safe travel and
enjoyed trip thoroughly…
Navin, Jan 2010, NSW, AUSTRALIA
…Many thanks to you for specially opening on Christmas day for us and for your excellent service. We will definitely be using Anzed again when we bring bub down to see his Christchurch relatives.
Dianne, Jan 2010, Auckland
…Happy New Year to you and your family!
Thanks again for being so helpful and kind to us, we all have had a vey memorable NZ trip indeed. Hope we will be able to meet up in the very near future!
I have referred a very good friend of ours Milarose and John … to hire a car from you! Please look after them for us! She will contact you via email shortly.
All the best to the coming year…
Jasmine & Pieter, Jan 2010, NSW
…the family had a great time in New Zealand. As driving is an integral part of our trip, you (and your company) contributed enormously for us to achieve that. The rice cooker was a great bonus and the phone does help alleviate additional changes. Thanks for the driving explanation. I tried my best to abide by the local rules but the tough one is definitely giving way to the on-coming joining traffic when making a left turn – subconsciously it’s difficult because it’s against what you have been doing on a daily basis!
We definitely try to keep to the speed limit and consciously paid for the parking whenever there’s a requirement; especially so in the bigger cities (e.g. Dunedin, Christchurch). As there is a possible lag in the traffic fines, let us know if inadvertently we broke some traffic laws. But I’m pretty sure we are clean.
We didn’t ‘clean up’ the car but we try our best to make sure we exercise the same attitude as if it’s ours back home. Do let us know if you find unexplained bumps to the car. Because there is no rear proximity sensor, we make sure we have greater allowance when reversing…
It was nice seeing you again.
Hadi & Siti, Jan 2010
…Happy New Year! Just returned to office today.
Thanks for accommodating us. The rental car has served its purpose definitely!
It's a real pleasure meeting you AGAIN.
Had a jolly good time in Christchurch. Hope to return soon and probably longer stay...Lucky you to be living is such an awesome place.
Till then take care and all the best for 2010.
Aishah & Azmi, Jan 2010
…Thank you for the car - it was really good and we enjoyed the trip more than we expected. I will recommend you to anyone else I know going there and will use you again if I come to NZ in the future. Good to meet you and once again thanks for all your help with everything.
Nolene, Jan 2010, Clayton, VIC, AUSTRALIA
…It was a nice car and didn't cause us trouble on the road. We will surely recommend ANZED Car Rentals to our friends and will visit you the next time we plan to go to South Island NZ.
Marcelino, Jan 2010,Redfern, NSW, AUSTRALIA
…It was great meeting the two of you in the office. We were very happy with your company's rental car service. We wish you a very happy and prosperous 2010.
Angie, Jan 2010,Los Gatos, CA, USA
