About Clock Hire New Zealand

Providing top quality digital clocks since 2006

Clock Hire New Zealand is backed by Running Events, one of the largest organisers of active sports events in New Zealand. Our clocks are based at our storage facility in Hobsonville, Auckland – but we can ship anywhere in New Zealand.

We have an extensive range of high quality, high visibility LED clocks. Our current inventory of clocks are all less than 4 years old and include mounting and power options to suit most requirements.

In addition to the dozen or so events produced by Running Events, you’ll see our clocks in use at some of the biggest events in New Zealand, including Auckland Round the Bays and the Auckland Marathon. These are hired through our partnership with event timing company Timing Sports.

We’d love to hear from you, but first …
… you might find your answer already listed here so take a look.

Our clocks feature 6 inch (15cm) high, red LED digits. They are highly visible for some considerable distance – even in bright sunshine. Each clock has 6 digits plus two decimal seperators. The exterior dimensions of the clocks are 805 mm wide x 200 mm high x 60mm deep.

Standard hire includes a collapsible 3-leg tripod with a scew-on base plate to attach the clock. The tripod can be extended to mount that clock just above head height. All clocks also include a stainless steel carry-handle which can be used to hang the clock from a support. This is suitable for inside environments only. To hang the clocks outside from an overhead structure (such as a race gantry), an optional gantry hanging kit is available which includes an aluminium hanging bracket, eyelets and a 5m extension cable.

The clocks are based at our industrial unit in Workspace Drive, Hobsonville, Auckland (only a few minutes from the motorway). In some special cases, we may be able to arrange pickup and/or delivery to other locations in the upper North Island. If this is you, please just ask.

Yes. We can arrange for courier delivery to your address at your cost and risk. You are responsible for arranging the return.

From the moment the clock leaves our premises (by however means) – and up to the point it is checked back into our premises – the care of the clock is the hirer’s responsibility. Any damage will be charged at cost + $100 admin fee. If the clock is lost or cannot be economically repaired, a replacement fee of $750 applies.

All fees and charges quoted on this web site are in New Zealand dollars and exclusive of GST.
