What we offer

Heaphy Track - car relocations are our speciality

A $20 extra charge applies to prices below for rental vehicle relocations.

Heaphy Track Vehicle Relocation Service (in either direction)


Cost for trampers: $290 (plus fuel).

There is some flexibility about the arrangements for getting you to the Brown Hut (Collingwood) track start for your Heaphy Track Great Walk. Usually we ask you to drive your own vehicle to the Brown Hut carpark, or there may be other arrangements. We will drive your vehicle around to Kohaihai carpark (Karamea end). Derry often comes through the Track on foot, meeting you along the way, but there may be alternatives to this arrangement. Therefore we ask you to provide a spare key for your vehicle if this is possible.

It is a simple reliable solution to the transport logistics, saving you time and giving you freedom at the West Coast end.


Your vehicle is driven from Kohaihai carpark to Brown Hut. During our busy period the cost is often discounted to $200 plus fuel. This is negotiable, depending on circumstances.

Relocations from the West Coast to Golden Bay can be done at any time of year but the cost will be the standard westwards charge during the quieter season, unless we happen to have a booking in the other direction.

Mountain Biking Groups

At most times we can relocate your vehicle. An extra charge of $30 usually applies because of the tighter timing.

Discounts negotiable for eastwards travel.

Otherwise try Martin Langley at The Quiet Revolution, Bike Tracks or Escape Adventures. Details of these and other transport options for mountain bikers are on our Links page.


Cash, cheque or online payment at time of service. No advance deposit required. No EFTPOS or crediit card processing facilities are available. We are not registered for GST.
