TR Group rental - everyday's a new day.

It’s been nearly a decade since I joined the TR rental team and all those years have led to a great career with a great team, with a great company. Ten years isn’t a short time, so you may be wondering, how anyone, really, could possibly stay in one company for this long. Well first, a love for trucks is the main fuel to the fire. There are so many reasons why I love what I do ...

TRym: The gym that brings people closer together.

Focusing on health and fitness is becoming more and more important and a number of businesses have built fitness areas and gyms for their staff to use. In most cases, having a gym at the workplace is simply useful and convenient for its employees, but what makes TR Group’s gym, or TRym as we call it, different is how it came to be and what it contributes to the company. It’s m ...

Teaching good habits from an early age

Habits are easier to form in children especially when they learn how to continue to do these things as they grow up.  You don’t have to be behind the wheel to start forming the habits of being a cautious and responsible pedestrian. If you learn these as a child, it will be easier for you to relate to pedestrians and other drivers when you start to drive. This is what the Safet ...

Transformed by Technology

TR Group was founded in 1992 and 11 years later we installed our first fleet management and accountancy software to help the business keep pace with its growth. We believe that to become better at what we do, we need to continuously improve and adjust to the times. We can’t keep using horses when cars are available. But why stop there? From the beginning, TR Group has always b ...

Weedons School’s Year 7 Barbecue

The very core of TR Group are its people and how we share the same values. So even with 12 branches, nationwide, these values are reflected by each and every team member no matter where they are in the country or in the world.

New Zealand Truck Driver Championship

Imagine New Zealand’s roads being the safest in the world. We might have a long way to go but road safety starts with those behind the wheel. Which is why TR Group is proud to support the Road Transport Forum’s New Zealand Truck Driver Championship. The New Zealand Truck Driver Championship is an annual competition hosted by the Road Transport Forum (RTF) in partnership with T ...

Youth Team Trust

Nelson Mandela stated that “the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow”. When Andrew Carpenter founded TR Group in 1992, together with his good mate, Neil Bretherton, they were only a few years out of their teens. They had a great love for trucks but they knew right from the start that TR Group was not about trucks, but about people and the relationships and interactions we ...

As technology advances, the number of children who prefer screens over books has dramatically increased. In other cases, there are children who simply do not have access to books, hindering their potential lear ...
