I have had the pleasure of dealing with Avis Ballarat for a year now and what a great partnership it has been. I work for a mining company that was starting a project, so my requirements were specific that i needed a certain amount of vehicles. I needed them straight away and needed them to be mine site safe. It was a big ask yet this company bent over backwards to help us. I have always found Avis Ballarat to be so easy to deal with, the staff are very friendly and always willing to help and I thank them for their continued sevice and support in meeting our needs.”
