We rented a campervan for 3 weeks, had a flat tire, great service and help. Campervan was well maintained. We would definitely rent with them again.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
I was struggling to get any positive replies from the smaller, individual, Camper Van company's in NZ, until I came across Rankers. What a truly great result that was. Within 24 hours, I was contacted by a number of company's, some saying they could help and others saying they were full. I received an email from Vicky at G&J Camping, saying that although they could not meet my specific needs, they gave me some options to think about. Vicky could not have been more helpful, talked me through the process, as a virgin camper and they offered me a fantastic deal with a 4 berth camper.
Everything went smoothly and Ross from G&J Campers met us at Auckland Airport and showed us everything we needed to know about the Camper. He understood we were inexperienced and took his time to explain all we needed to know. He is an asset to their team.
We went on our merry way, but within 48 hours disaster struck....we were parked up 30km north of Kiakoura and the Earthquake struck!! We were trapped between two massive landslides, the road was completely torn apart and we had to abandon our Camper Van.....it will be stuck there for at least 3 months. We were helicoptered to safety and taken to Blenheim.
PC Alan Hendrickson called Vicky at G&J Campers for us, to explain the circumstances. I could not believe what happened in the next two hours.
Vicky from G&J called me back, saying that if we wanted, they would arrange for flights from Blenheim back to Christchurch, where they would provide us with an upgraded 6-berth Camper, at no cost at all to ourselves. Steve from G&J then sorted everything for us, booked our flights, arranged for our replacement Camper Van to be delivered to AKL, and after a short break, our Camper Van holiday was back on track.
To say that Vicky and Steve from G&J Campers went beyond the call of duty is nothing short of an understatement.
This is all TRUE.
IF YOU WANT TO DEAL WITH THE BEST CAMPER VAN COMPANY....CALL G&J CAMPING....end of.

We used G and J Campers found there camper to be easy to drive, all that was supplied was clean and fresh, would recommend anyone to use them:Steve and Vicki were very friendly to deal with:
We had previously travelled the North Island in a Wilderness Camper so knew it was a style of travel we really enjoyed. A late decision to visit NZ saw us with few options and we were delighted when Vicky and Steve had a van for us.
From the moment we made the booking they were friendly and replied promptly to every query.
The van was spotlessly clean and very well equipped - providing extras like additional towels and dish washing liquid was really helpful.
The solar panels on top and excellent battery system meant we could freedom camp for days on end, which enabled us to keep costs down and stay bush rather than in parks.
At less than 12 months old our van - the 2015 Fiat -had lots of conveniences such as multiple USB ports to recharge devices and a real bathroom We were travelling with my 82 yr old mother in law so that convenience was essential..
Separate bags for grey and freshwater hoses (loads of tap attachments for the dedicated freshwater hose) and crates storing the power cord etc was very professional, as was a folder with every manual for the van
One thing I particularly appreciated was that this company unlike some of the big ones did not demand an exorbitant bond.
Be aware this company is based in the south and if hiring in Auckland you will go through euro campers. The Euro guys were lovely to deal with and super helpful but they need to lift their game regarding what they think are business hours. Charging an additional $80 dollars to pick up or drop off after 11.30 on Saturday is just not fair, particularly as many Australian families arrive mid afternoon on a Saturday.
For us personally our preferred van would have large windows at the rear while this had a permanent bed so didn't offer this but it worked really well. The over cabin bed where my husband and I slept was huge and had good height above.
Mechanically it drove well, no worries heading up steep hills or over bumpy 'stone' roads.
I really recommend this company.
Really good price for the value. They care about every customer individually.
We found G&J Campers locally and could not have experienced better customer service via email, phone and face-to-face. Vicki and Steve were exceptionally friendly and accommodating to ensure our time away (in winter) was nothing but perfect. The Fiat 4 berth was clean, tidy, well insulated, all the necessary equipment and a breeze to drive. Well recommended and planning an Autumn trip now! Carla and Nathan Taylor

Great collection from the airport. VW Crafter Auto, runs well, just a little tired inside.
We didn't want to book with the big national companies, we wanted to hire for a week just before Christmas, some companies wouldn't hire out for less than two weeks in December, luckily we came across G and J Campers. We had very good communication from Steve and Vicky from the outset, we hired a 4 berth which was very reasonably priced, very well equipped and clean. The motorhome was delivered to our motel in Christchurch and we had good instructions from Steve before setting off on our 6 day journey down to Queenstown where it was collected by Steve at the end of our journey. We can highly recommend G and J Campers.
My wife and I did a 3 week trip in NZ, 8 days with a camper in the South Island. We found G&J Campers on the internet and at first were hesitant to rent (hire) from a small local business. The booking must be done with email and phone call. The owners Steve and Vicky were very professional in their communication and everything was straightforward. After a couple of phone calls we decided to work with them. Easy.
Upon our arrival in Christchurch, we called Steve and within a few minutes he was there with the camper, did a 20 minute overview and we were ready to go. He took us to a grocery store parking lot making it easy to get food before hitting the road. The next day we encountered a small problem with the water system. We were in Timaru for the night, Steve came first thing in the morning to check and work it out. The problem came back the next day and Steve did everything to get us into a place for repair along our route. We finally discovered what was the issue (process) and we were OK for the rest of the trip - no problem with the camper.
Before we arrived, we realized that the forecast for the nights was going to be much colder than anticipated. They gave us extra blankets, and a LPG indoor heater at no extra cost.
We dropped the camper at the location near the airport, easy and simple. We truly enjoyed working and dealing with Steve - he is a nice guy, very friendly and a business owner who has at heart his customers. Without hesitation we do recommend G&J Campers for international travelers who are seeking to hire a camper for their vacation.
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience with G&J Campers. We rented a campervan for 2 weeks to tour the South Island. Steve met us at the airport, gave us a tour of the campervan, turned over the keys and we were off! Easy Breezy! We had a great time in the camper and it performed flawlessly. It was perfect for our needs. We camped mostly in the DOC sites and the camper worked out wonderfully. Steve met us back at the Christchurch airport for drop off and the return was just as simple. No lines, no high pressure tactics! Can't wait until I can come back to New Zealand and rent from G and J Campers again!
Just arrived back in the UK from the best holiday ever! and had to put pen to paper in regard to the level of service that we received from Juliet and Gary at G&J Campers. From the first contact with Juliet we were impressed with the way that they helped us, we had never hired a camper van before and we can truly say they held our hand all the way through the hiring process, no question was left unanswered. We looked at loads of camper van companies, and G&J stood out from the rest, prompt replies from any emails that we sent. We hired a 4 berth camper van from G&J for 5 days, and whilst not brand new, it was in excellent condition and never caused us problems. Our requirements needed a pick up in Christchurch and drop off in Queenstown (you would be surprise how many of the "BIG camper van companies") could not or should that be would not do this! with G&J this was no problem. To illustrate the level of service this family run enterprise goes to, we overlooked a glasses case when we dropped the van of at Queenstown Airport (early morning flight but Juliet and Gary were there waiting for us) they e-mailed me trying to find what hotels we would be staying in on the north island so they could get the case back to us, I mean a glasses case!!. If you have read this review the only thing left to say is book with this company and you will not be disappointed. If we could score higher than a ten we would.
We hired two campers for a trip to Dunedin. The campers were great, very comfortable and in very good condition. Easier to travel in than we expected. Great service as well, nothing was a problem and easy to pick up and hand back.
We were looking for a small self-contained campervan and found the ideal van (we named her Rosemary) with G&J campers.We had a wonderful three weeks and enjoyed the freedom of self-contained travel. Easy booking process and great service from Gary and Juliet. We had an unforeseeable technical issue with Rosemary, but there was great communication and they sorted out the repair promptly. Excellent value and we recommend G&J campers to others.
