Hire Info

If we haven’t covered something below please drop us a line.

Hire Periods & Bookings

Our preferred minimum rental period is a week because it does take time to show a new hirer how things work and check/clean everything when it comes back.

However it is possible to hire it for a weekend. We generally won’t confirm a weekend rental until 3 weeks before and last minute hires are always welcome.

Our booking form is here (Word Doc or PDF). We’ll need you to fill it in and pay a deposit to confirm a booking.

Hire Inclusions

Our hire rates include everything you need except food, bedding and clothes. We supply crockery, cutlery, cooking equipment, chairs, table and, of course, the Tvan!

You need to bring a sheet and doona for the bed, pillows, food and clothes.

Early pickup/late dropoff

Tvan can be taken to the hirer’s home address for loading/cleaning but must be kept overnight at that address. This service may not always be available as it depends on other bookings and will be verified using the GPS tracker. Most of the money goes towards the insurance – we’d rather you had a relaxing trip by being able to pack early and do a proper job of cleaning it when you get back home.

Payment

Unfortunately we are unable to accept credit cards – EFT is preferred but cash is also possible. Our account details are on the booking form.

Security Deposit

A $2000 deposit is payable before departure. You can either deposit the money into our account or leave us with the cash. This is to cover the insurance excess or other damage if you are at fault.

Cleaning

The Tvan must be returned clean otherwise a cleaning fee of $250 will be charged.

GPS Tracking

The Tvans are fitted with a satellite GPS tracker for theft recovery, hire condition checking, damage investigation and to allow early pickup/dropoff.

If your friends/family would like to monitor your progress to share the excitement or just make sure you are alive we are happy to provide a password protected link to the tracking portal for them. It is a satellite based system so it will work outside mobile coverage areas.

Tyre Pressure Monitoring System & Stone Guard

We supply a Sensatyre TPMS and Stone Stomper stone guard – see the Towing page for more info.

Where can we take it?

Pretty much anywhere but…

  • No beaches or salt water
  • No narrow/overgrown tracks where the sides will get scratched
  • No deep water

We may use the GPS track information to check compliance with this. Any damage that occurs will be charged to the hirer.
