Campermate founder travels with Transfercar
Adam Hutchinson, co-founder of Campermate, recalls:
''I was quite surprised about how it all works with Transfercar. Yes, you have to sign up and give some details, but the process works. Once you sign up and select your vehicle, you have to pay a deposit with your credit card, then an email is sent to the vehicle rental company (their details are retained from you up until this point), when the company confirms an email is sent back to you with details on pick up time and location. The vehicle I was relocating was a Lucky Rentals campervan, which I picked up from near the Christchurch airport. Once you get there, you are treated as a (paying) customer, either that or the guys at Lucky Rentals are just always super friendly. Within 5 minutes, I was on the road, cruising past Belfast (northern suburb of Christchurch) and heading toward Kaikoura in my 1998 Toyota Estima.''
