    Amazing Service
    Hi there We walked the Old Ghost Road starting 28th Feb 2023. I spoke with Barry on the phone about relocation of the car from the start at Lyell Carpark to Rough n Tumble Lodge at the end of the track at Sedonville. It was a seamless operation and would totally recommend this business in regards to your trip. Barry was so helpful which made our arrangements so easy to implement.

    Great service.
    Used Barry and his team to transfer our car so we could bike the Paparoa track. Easy to book on the website. Excellent communication and instructions. Would highly recommend. This is our second time customers as we used this same service for the Old Ghost Trail as well.

    If you are considering a West Coast adventure, Buller Adventures are your go to company for logistical requirements and local advice. On two occasions now Barry has taken me under his wing and been instrumental in making my adventure possible. Thanks Buller Adventures / Barry and team. See you again for my 80th? John Kidman.

    Barry from Buller Adventures was great - even phoning us the night before to check we were still good to go! Car relocation went perfectly, and it was so convenient to hire the PLB from them too. Thanks for your wonderful service 😀

    Easy relocation for backcountry adventures
    Barry had provided good relocation services for my Old Ghost Road trip last year so I was keen to use Buller Adventures again for Paparoa Track. Easy booking, good price, and clear communication. Cheers!

    Wonderful service - Barry and team gave tremendous general recommendations/advice for my solo trip on the Old Ghost Road. Car relocation service and sleeping bags on the trail were exactly as advertised. Great service - thank you!

    Excellent service, easy to book and use
    Buller Adventures did a great job with relocating our car when we walked the Paparoa Great Walk. We would highly recommend them. They were easy to book, the information they provided was clear, and the service was great.

    Awesome
    Best service ever. It’s been a while since I’ve been in NZ and was expecting the old bus shuttle service back to town. So nice having your car at the end of a long, one way hike.

    5 Star Service
    Buller Adventures provided an exceptional experience on our November 2023 Old Ghost Road Bike. Their vehicle transfer service was seamless, enhancing the overall experience significantly. They handled our equipment with care and ensured that everything was securely transported. The convenience of not having to worry about the logistics of vehicle transfer allowed us to immerse ourselves fully in the biking experience. The Old Ghost Road itself was a breathtaking journey, with its challenging terrains and stunning landscapes. Buller Adventures’ support played a crucial role in making this trip memorable. Their knowledge of the trail and attention to detail in the transfer service meant we had more time to appreciate the natural beauty and less time dealing with logistics. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to tackle the Old Ghost Road - their vehicle transfer service is a game-changer for an already incredible adventure.

Faultless service in relocating our car while hiking The Old Ghost Road . Emails came with clear and precise instructions in regards to key drop and collection- it was a very comforting sight to see our car waiting for us in the carpark after a long hike!

It was extremely smooth and stress-free dealing with Barry and the team at Buller Adventures. We had absolutely no issues at all. They gave clear instructions about how to have our car transferred, everything was right where they said it would be, and our little car was waiting for us in perfect condition when we came out at the end of the Paparoa Track Great Walk. We would totally use their services again.

Thank you Buller Adventures. We had stunning views, awesome weather, great huts and the best bird song we have heard on any tramp we have been on. Everyday was different, never a dull moment!

We booked our car re-location with Buller Adventures and had contact with Barry via email and phone prior to our tramping trip to The Old Ghost Road. The re-location service worked like clockwork and we were really happy with the service. It was very reassuring getting the call from Barry the night before the trip. We knew that he was onto it and our car would be looked after accordingly. Thank you!

Very good service provided. We hired a PLB and car relocation for the Old Ghost Road. Clear email communication about where to collect items, drop off keys etc. Car relocation was easy, left our car at the start of the track and it was waiting for us at the end. Didnt need to use the PLB thankfully but we wanted one for just in case. This was waiting for us to collect. Very easy! Thank you for providing a seamless service!

Great communication in set up the car transfer. Everything went very smoothly on the day. Clearly marked lockbox for key and PLB pick up/ drop off. Very clear instructions. Car was parked at the end of the trail as promised! Thanks! We did the OGR trail in one day - so left early in the morning - so the vehicle relocation service worked perfectly for us - thank you!
