About Us

We know what we are talking about because we’ve done it in the family for generations! NC Equipment was founded as North Canterbury Equipment in 1965, and taken over by the current owners Gerard and John Bassett in 1990. They came from farming and mechanical backgrounds which provided the experience as well as a shared passion for machinery.  6 members of the next generation have now joined the company and continued the tradition of being a trusted provider of assured quality equipment, trusted experience and world class service solutions to the farmers and contractors of New Zealand and beyond.

Forging strong, trusting relationships with the farming community over that time has made the business what it is today; strong, respected and valued for its ethics and honest and trusting family values. We are located on more than half a hectare on State Highway One in Amberley, with a 1600 sqm building which consists of; offices, showroom and  service workshops. The core of our business is buying and selling of all farm machinery, both new and used sourced from both NZ Manufacturers and Overseas.

OUR HISTORY


NC Equipment was founded as North Canterbury Equipment in 1965, and taken over by the current owners Gerard and John Bassett in 1990. Forging strong, trusting relationships with the farming community over that time has made the business what it is today – strong, respected and valued for its ethics and honest and trusting family values.

In 2012 we shifted in to our current purpose-built building housing the different divisions of our business under one roof.

In 2012 we split off the hire part of our business to be run as a separate company NC Hire, run by other family members.

In 2015 we took on the Kymco range of bikes

In 2016 we took on the Walker range of Rideon mowers
