We were both thrilled with the day and how everything worked out.  The marquee (put up and take down etc) was fantastic, we wouldn't change a thing!! Thank you to all your team, great effort for a very special day.

Sian (Wedding, Spencer Park, March 2017)


Pete and Panther were absolutely outstanding in what was a tricky job. We have had many functions at the back of our place over 35 years but have never had such a professionally set up job with lots of complex solutions needed. A lot of care was taken to ensure everything ‘looked good’. This is something we had never experienced before. There is no doubt if there had been the massive rain or wind that was predicted the system would have laughed it off. Many thanks again

Dr Stuart Gowland (Function Merivale, April 2017)

We had such a great day and we were so lucky with weather!! It was so hot and beautiful. The marquee was perfect, I didn't want it to come down it just fit perfectly on our lawn! Loved it and made such a cool vibe!! Thank you so much,you guys were so easy to deal with and made the whole process relaxing! 

Bridget (Wedding - Cheviot, March 2017)

Thank you for your help, everything went very well, and your team were efficient and professional at all times, impressed a few with what hard work is involved by your guys, could you please thank them for us.

Stella & Richard (Wedding -  Purau, February 2017)

We've used J&C Hire for business events where they cater for all our requirements. when we're not working we like to race scale model IC race cars.

The best venue in NZ is at Ruapuna, now known as the Mike Pero Motor Sport Park. For some years now J&C Hire have erected and dismantled a marquee at the track for us, sometimes twice a year.

We fly in and fly out so we need J&C to organise things for us. They never let us down, are easy to work with and go the extra mile for us.

This is the third time I have used Johnson & Couzins within 18 months and as always, you provided fantastic service with good product and everything is spotlessly clean. Drop-off and Pick-up is easy, flexibility to change the order was never a problem and staff are fantastic - once again thank you so very, very much.

Judy Sparks (Wedding, Springston)

 We just wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for the service you provided up until the day of our wedding on the 24th of January. From our first email exchanges, we knew this was the company we wanted to deal with... and we have not been let down since. From the discount provided for being a referral customer, to the advice about types & numbers of glassware, the last minute additions to our order, and the helpful and friendly drop off and pick up guys... the entire dealings with JNC were fantastic - thank you!!!!

We have of course, recommended you to a number of future wedding couples, including via the 'Christchurch Brides' facebook page. We hope you get more and more service from future bride and grooms. Thank you again!

Claire and Matthew (Wedding, Huntsbury)

Johnson and Couzins offered a competitive and convenient solution when we needed multiple marquees. Their customer service was excellent in providing a timely quote and offering a product that suited out needs. As the date of the event approached they contacted us in advance to organise the delivery and ensure a hassle-free service. We would recommend their service to anyone and thank them for helping make our event a success.

Richard Goodwin (Boys brigade Camp, Waipara)

I just wanted to let you and the team know that we were very impressed with the service and goods provided for our wedding. We received many compliments from our guests about the wonderful set up and how beautiful things were (the fairy lights were especially popular). Thanks again to you all and I would highly recommend you to anyone else thinking about having a marquee wedding / reception.
Helga & Greg (Wedding, Amberley)

We were recommended to use Johnson and Couzins Hire for our Wedding. From the first moment we contacted the team they understood what we wanted to achieve for our special day and did everything they could to help us.
Amanda was extremely efficient and prompt to get back to all queries. Nothing was a problem and she goes the extra mile.
Lee travelled from Christchurch to Lake Tekapo to inspect the site, he was incredibly professional and reassuring that there would not be a problem – and there wasn’t!
We could not talk higher about Johnson and Couzins Hire and we will now be recommending them.

 We cannot recommend Johnson and Couzins highly enough. Amanda was amazing - we sent hundreds of emails with changes and additions, she was always helpful and nothing was ever a problem.

Amanda you were great !! Your product knowledge and 'nothing is a problem' attitude made planning our wedding so easy. Thank you to Hamish who made a site visit to ensure the marque would fit, which it did perfectly. The installers were great, they had it all up and ready to go in no time! All of your gear was in tip top condition, the finished product looked great. All in all you are great at what you do!.
We cant say thank you enough and we would have no hesitation whatsoever about recommending you to our family and friends, infact, we already have!
Kirstie & Dave (Wedding, West Melton)

Thank you so much for all of your guys help! It was really easy, even from the other side of the world (England). Both the office team and the guys that came out to site were friendly and professional, so thanks again.
Anna & Simon (Wedding, Okains Bay)

Johnson & Couzins Hire were the only company that would put a bigger marquee down our driveway, everyone else said it wouldnt fit. They turned up in force a couple of days earlier and set it up within a few hours.
I felt like i had rung or emailed Amanda almost daily to change something or add something to the list of products that were available to hire. Amanda was sweet with everything. We went to the office a couple of times to check the equipment out and Amanda was such a gem to deal with, nothing seemed a problem.
Our day went to plan and it was nice to have the marquee a couple of days before and after the event to be able to set everything up.
Thanks Amanda and Johnson & Couzins Hire, we really appreciate your efficiency and professionalism.
Karen & Rachel - (Wedding, Christchurch)

Many thanks for your service and an outstanding job in making our Xmas Function a Success. Amanda you made my job easy with outstanding service, thanks to your team too.
Bridget (Xmas Function, Road Metals)

Our daughter got married on the 24th November 2012. We had to have a sudden change of venue due to the one we had booked being closed and chose to have a marquee. We found the perfect spot and engaged Johnson & Couzins Hire to put up the marquee for us. Everything was better than we imagined. We arrived on the Friday to the marquee installed without any hassle, on time as promised. When we saw it decorated and tables set out by Moveable Feasts, we were overwhelmed. Both parties have been very professional and provided amazing service. We would recommend Johnson & Couzins Hire to anyone looking to have a wedding in a marquee
Suzanne & Bill McKnight (Wedding, Harewood)

Thanks to Amanda, Hamish and the Team. Great having you on board and it really was a pleasure doing business with you. Greatly appreciated your "can do" attitude. I can honestly say it was the best marquee we have ever had.

CRFU have used Johnson & Couzins' marquees for several christmas parties and they have been a life saver each time, once for shade on a 30 degree day and then as shelter from a nastly easterly.

We will definately continue to use their services in the future.
