G and J Campers provided us with 2 camper vans for 19 days during February 2017. We had a great time travelling around the South Island and the vans were comfortable and reliable. We had one issue that Steve resolved without fuss and promptly. The only complaint I would have is that some more detailed instruction in the use of the van would be desirable, particularly for first time users like ourselves. Other wise a really good experience.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Very, very helpful company. Vicky & Steve did all they could to provide us with suitable camper van despite being the busiest time of year. We had to change vans because of availability towards the end of our booking, but the changeover was very easy and we ended up with a larger, more comfortable van at no extra cost. The vans were very well equipped and proved very reliable. Vicky & Steve responded very quickly to all our many queries & questions. G and J Campers highly recommended.
Great to deal with. I would recommend.
We took a 2 Berth Camper from Christchurch to Picton for 2 weeks. Since we did the northern island by car and hotels, we were glad that a return in Picton was possible.
The Campervan was a Mercedes, diesel, automatic, ca. 200.000 km run but perfect maintained, everything was fine and as expected. So the value for money was really good!
The booking process was also easy and fine - nearly too easy and informal for germans ;-) Honestly, at the beginning we were a bit afraid due to the fact, that beside rankers.co.nz I didn't find much feedback regarding G&J Campers. But we are very glad that we choosed to go with these guys.
Beside this, Vicky and Steve (Owner of G&J Campers) were great. If there is something unclear, just give them a call and you'll find a solution real soon.

I did my research on my NZ road trip recently and came across Rankers, which was extremely useful in my search for an affordable and reputable campervan from G & J. Planning was easy with Rankers on activities and campsites. Definitely will recommend to others. Just a feedback that if the map for campsite locations is more detailed, that will be awesome!
We can highly recommend this company. We discovered G & J Campers thanks to rankers and the amazing and truly reviews left on the website. Our experience confirms all the good feedback you'll find here. G&J even if a small company compared to the majors provide a service of higher standards. Great communication, quick problem solver, listener to the customer questions. Maybe there are other small companies that can provide a cheaper vehicle but I do not believe they can guarantee the service provided by G&J, they went more above our expectations.
If one day we'll manage to travel again in New Zealand I'll definitely look again for them.

Très bonne expérience avec G&J campers , le van était super, en très bon état, agréable à conduire, très propre et Steve / Vicky très disponible à la moindre question ! Pour la réservation ils ont également pris le temps pour tout m'expliquer et leurs réponses étaient très rapide et claires !
tout était parfait pour notre voyage de noces et pour découvrir la nouvelle zélande ! je recommande vivement cette compagnie!

We would highly recommend this smaller company (G & J )as they were spot on when it came to very friendly/efficient service and communications. The VW camper van was clean and worked well. Most
important for me was it be a diesel with auto transmission. We had a great experience touring both islands and avoided the earthquake area on the South island.
I can highly recommend this service! Vicky and Steve do a great job!
When we received our camper everything was as described and in good condition. And compared to the big companies this is a really good deal.
During our trip we had a small issue with the gas stove and got an answer email with a working fix-solution within a few hours - perfect.
Also the use of the "track-hopping service" for the Routeburn Track was not a problem. It was not a big deal to have a thrid driver from track hoppers in our contract.
Use G and J Campers, you wont regret it!

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.
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.
