Our values are what separate us from other car hire and truck hire companies. When you choose Network Car Hire & Truck Rentals you can be confident that we take our core values seriously:


From maintaining a modern and reliable fleet of vehicles for hire, to providing first-rate customer service – quality is an important aspect of our business that we consistently strive to uphold. Nothing but the highest quality standards will do.


In order to stay relevant and provide the best experience for customers, innovation is essential. As such, we’re constantly on the lookout for new ways to make our customers’ lives easier.

Service Excellence

We will never lose touch with what is the most important aspect of our business; you. Therefore, service excellence – including the functionality of our website, responsiveness of staff and the quality of our products remains one of our strongest values and is ingrained into the culture of our business.


We understand that as a vehicle hire company we have a responsibility to provide you with safe and reliable transportation. With regular safety and performance checks on all our vehicles, we honour this responsibility and value the well being of our customers above all else.

About Us

With a story stretching back more than 30 years, Network Car Hire and Truck Rentals has grown from humble beginnings to become one of Australia’s leading car and truck hire companies. It all started in 1981 when the business commenced under the name Rent-A-Ute; a small three vehicle fleet that operated from a local service station. After just three years, the ambitious owners began franchising and by 1990, Rent-A-Ute merged with Network Rent-A-Car; changing their name to Network Rentals, and experiencing exponential growth in the process.

At this time, Network Rentals Pty Ltd became the only wholly Australian owned and operated national vehicle rental company in the country. Being Australian owned and operated is something that the business continues to draw pride from today. With over 50 locations managed by more than 20 franchisees in New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria – the company is proud to be facilitating the employment of hundreds of Australians.

In 2010, after a full management buyout (from part owners Motorama Group), Network Car Hire & Truck Rentals refocused the business to include both truck and car hire as its core services. Over time, other offerings like airport valet service, one-way rental and repairers pick-up have been added, making Network Car & Truck Rentals a truly full-service player.

Looking to the future, we will continue to offer customers high-quality vehicles, impressive prices and the personalised service that’s helped us thrive for more than 30 years. Indeed, our commitment to these cornerstones is what will continue to set us apart from the rest.
