'Door To Door' Camping Gear Now For Hire Online In NZ

Kiwi holidaymakers and overseas visitors can now hire quality outdoor gear online for an intrepid journey on the home turf.

NZ Camp Site Ltd are adventure and camping specialists, providing a range of quality gear booked online and delivered door-to-door. Director Jacqui Wilkinson says appeals to Kiwis and overseas visitors who want an adventure holiday without outlaying a fortune on buying quality gear.

"Many people are curious about getting outdoors - they're just not sure where to begin. And with so much gear on the market, buying outdoor equipment can be a risky business."

Experienced outdoor adventurers, Wilkinson and partner Chris Daya, offer a streamlined online service for would-be campers and trampers. They provide comprehensive advice, pack all the gear and deliver it direct to the customer's door.

Wilkinson says the quality of the gear determines the success of an adventure holiday and the company only provides superior brand-name gear that's light weight, compact and in excellent condition.

"There's nothing worse than heading outdoors with inferior gear. We only hire gear in near-new condition and we thoroughly check it after every trip."

The company offers a full range of gear for hire, from dome tents to gas lanterns. Wilkinson says all the gear is designed to withstand New Zealand's changeable weather conditions and diverse terrain.

"We want people to really enjoy their adventure holiday - and that means setting them up for a comfortable and safe trip."

A weekend excursion or three-week bush expedition, Wilkinson says customers choose only what they need for their outdoor excursion.

"They might just hire a tent or a dozen items. We want to encourage people to explore their own country without going over budget."

Campers can choose from a variety of tents, sleeping bags, air inflatables, camping pillows, gas cookers and refillable cylinders, gas lanterns, foldable chairs and tables.

The tramping gear includes lightweight tents, sleeping bags, air inflatables, pillows, hiker stoves and disposable gas cylinders, backpacker gas lanterns, packs, gaiters, waterproof jackets and pants

The site has excellent advice about the country's most desirable camping spots and tramping areas. The couple are also passionate about preserving our native land, and thoroughly brief travellers about caring for the environment. For novice outdoor types, there's also detailed safety information online.

"People shouldn't feel like their out of their depth, otherwise it ends up being a nightmare trip."

Nothing beats a night under the stars in a remote setting, and now an enterprising couple are helping you get on the road.

"We want Kiwis to discover their own country- see firsthand what overseas travellers' rave about. Mother Nature is a great teacher and they always come back buzzing."

Your next outdoor adventure is just a mouse-click away.
