Queenstown has always been a bustling hub for the South Island but in recent years, its growth has boomed creating a new crowd of tradies and active DIY’ers. Kennards Hire has responded to this growth and continual demand for hire equipment by relocating, revamping and expanding into a 2,600sqm purpose-built equipment hire branch in Queenstown.

Tom Kimber, General Manager, New Zealand Operations said, “We are proud to be able to support the local community not only with ongoing investment into the area, but with the clear sign that Kennards Hire is here for the long term.

“Through the relocation and new build, we have used local sub-contractors, trade suppliers and logistic companies. We employ local people in what is a state-of-the-art branch, delivering on our core promise to make our customers’ job easy.

“It is because of the ongoing support we have received from our locally based customers that we can repay their loyal custom with a brand new branch, stocked with the latest gear so they can just concentrate on delivering their services to their customers.”

The expansive branch officially opened on Tuesday, 23 March and offers an extensive range of equipment to support local trades, residential and commercial construction, recreational industries as well as DIY enthusiasts across the Southern Peninsula. The new location has a purpose-built site that consolidated two locations into one, stocking everything from gardening and landscaping equipment for the home, all the gear for tradies, along with some of the largest excavators in the country.

Nathan Wise, Branch Manager said, “Having originally opened our Queenstown Branch in 2018, we’ve seen enormous growth in the area. Our new branch has all the gear needed to meet the increased equipment hire demand for residential, commercial and constructions projects in Queenstown and surrounds.”

“The new branch is fully stocked with the most popular gear in the region, including earthmoving gear, such as mini loaders. Knowing how Kiwi’s love their lawns, and with Easter just around the corner, we’ve got all the equipment and advice they need to perfect their lawn over the long weekend.”

With a focus on delivering exceptional customer service, the branch is staffed with an extensive, knowledgeable team with over 15 year’s equipment experience between them.

Open 7 days a week, and conveniently located at 22 Glenda Drive, Franktown, Queenstown. To celebrate the opening, Kennards Hire is offering two days hire for the price of one at the Queenstown Branch until 11 April.
