Emergency pick up/return details

18.9.2019 – please note that due to the emergency closure of the Wellington Ferry Terminal building customers will need to find the Thrifty van located in the Ferry Terminal Carpark to pick up or return rentals. We expect this is only a short term solution while alternative arrangements are made and we apologise to our customers for any inconvenience this may cause.
