About HireShop Kaitaia, HireShop Kaitaia Team

Our team are proud to support Kaitaia and the Far North Region with a complete range of equipment, machinery and tools for hire.

Available at competitive rates, with weekend specials and long term hire options available, it's our pleasure to help you get the job done!


Carol Carr and Johno Brien are owner operators of Hireshop Kaitaia Limited.

Running their existing Stihl Shop business on Commerce Street gave them a great understanding of the community and its needs.

"We saw that there was real demand for quality product hire here in Kaitaia - not everyone needs to buy a concrete mixer or mower for a single weekend job, it's all about providing what people need, at an affordable short term basis."

They purchased the HireShop business and opened their doors in 2012 with a vision to create a trusted, 'go to' hire shop that the local community would use to support their projects - both at home and at work.

They have since been expanding the range of equipment to include larger plant such as a 2.6t digger, 9inch chipper and a full range of trailers, as well as increased stock of popular power tools, event equipment and garden tools. 

Their dedicated Hire Operators manage the day to day HireShop bookings and customers care as well as keeping the fleet of equipment in great working order. Led by manager Johno, they work closely with the Stihl Shop team sharing skills and knowledge to get the job done!
