Dates not available? Occasionally because of estimated shipping buffers between rentals, gear may still be available when it shows as not here. Please contact us if you'd like to double check specific dates you're after that don't show as available.
Do you need to rent a Gaming PC for virtual reality?
These are VR Ready PC's, and come with tons of games already on them for free. Plus there's free space left on the SSD in case you want to play your own games too.
Each PC can plug it into a TV or Monitor with HDMI, at the same time as your VR headset. There's labels on the back showing you where they go, and setup is easy. If you do need an HDMI cable, or a keyboard and mouse, simply tick the options above and there's no charge for them.
For more information on hiring gaming computers, please see the tabs along the top of this description, which detail computer requirements, accessories, shipping and our terms and conditions. You can also see the date a headset is next available, and book dates by e-mailing us.
What else do you need?
Only a monitor or a TV. We can include an HDMI cable with the PC at no charge (simply tick the option up above), but you may require a different cable or adapter if your monitor or TV doesn't have an HDMI port.
We can provide a keyboard and USB mouse, plus an HDMI cable if needed. There's no charge at all for these, and they can be selected in the Optional Extras section above.
We use Courier Post to ship nationwide, and shipping is charged per item. The shipping price includes return.

When does my rental begin?
We aim to have your gear delivered on the day you select the rental to start. Occasionally it may arrive a day earlier (freebie bonus!) and very rarely later because of courier post delays or other issues. In the case it arrives later, your rental begins on the day it does arrive, and the end of your rental is extended also.
This is rare, but it's also why we recommend for any event or such where you require the gear on a certain date, please book the rental to start at least 3 business days before you absolutely need it. Aside from Courier delays, this covers you for any issues setting it up. That's also rare, but like your mother probably told you, better safe than sorry. Although your mother also probably told you not to sit so close to the TV, or your eyes will go square. Look ma, see how close the screens in this headset are!
How do I return the rental?
On the day your rental ends, the parcel just needs to be returned to any NZ Post shop before their last pickup (usually around 4pm to 5pm at latest). The prepaid courier sticker we give you with the gear, just gets stuck on the parcel, they scan it and give you a receipt, and you're done. Easy. But also sad, because goodbyes are always hard.
Can You Rent?
You need to be 18 or older (unless married), have a valid NZ drivers license or valid NZ passport, and be able to afford the full replacement costs of the item if needed. Those costs are detailed in the T&C's below
What Happens In Addition to Checkout
❶ You'll need to email us a photo or scan of your ID to upload. Either a valid NZ drivers license or valid NZ passport.
❷ You need to read and sign the Terms and Conditions, and email us a photo or scan of that. You can electronically sign if it adequately identifies you as a match to your ID.
I know it's common to skip reading the terms and conditions, but for your own protection it really is important to read these. They cover a lot of potential costs which you must be able to afford if you're renting, and have been kept as easy to read as possible.
If you have any questions at all, please do feel free to e-mail and ask.
