South Africa 4 x 4 Rentals New Mobipaid Payment Link


When making payments

South Africa 4×4 Rentals have been using credit card authorization forms for deposit payments for as long as I can remember. This has been working quite well for us despite the constant back and forth communication with our clients regarding this. We have now introduced a new Mobipaid payment link where clients can pay their deposits as well as final payments.

How does it work?

After your invoice has been generated and sent to you, we send you the Mobipaid payment link via email. The client then clicks on the link and proceeds with the payment. No app or account registration required. The details required on this payment link are the details on the clients credit or debit card. Once payment is done, client will receive a confirmation of payment. The client will also see if the payment was unsuccessful and will be able to try again.

Benefits/Advantages of the Mobipaid payment link to clients:

  • Quick and easy to use
  • More secure method of payment
  • Full control over payments
  • No cost to client (No bank charges)
  • No paperwork involved


From the above mentioned benefits, it is clear to see that the Mobipaid payment link is a better payment option than the credit card authorization as well as bank transfers.


Feedback from clients

The feedback received from clients who have been using the Mobipaid payment link is very positive. Clients say that is a much more secure and easy payment method. The fact that they do not have to print out authorization forms to sign and send back is a plus. Payment is quick and easy with less effort.

South Africa 4 x 4 Change of Address

South Africa 4 x 4 Change of Address


For over 2 years, South Africa 4×4 Rentals have been operating from the premises at 62 Radio Street, Alberton North, Johannesburg. This is the address where we met and assisted many of our very satisfied customers, made lots of memories and met wonderful people.

Time for Change


Although we absolutely loved operating from 62 Radio Street, we felt that it was time for change. We have since moved from the above-mentioned address to our new premises not far from the old one for various reasons, some of which includes:

  • Space – Bigger premises
  • Privacy – More privacy on the premises
  • Comfort – We get to make it our own
  • Safety – Full control over who enters the premises

Change was brought forth to benefit both the company as well as our clients.


New Premises


As form the 1st of December 2018, we have been operating from 1 Jacoba & Prinsloo street, Alberton North, Johannesburg. We have since assisted many of our clients at our new premises, some of which were return clients and they loved our new premises more than the old one. Some feel that the new premises brings forth a sense of nature and fits perfectly with the idea of an adventure. With our slogan being “Your Adventure Starts Here”, it only makes sense that our clients feel that way upon collection of their rented 4×4 vehicle.

South Africa 4×4 Automatic Toyota Hilux

South Africa 4×4 Automatic Toyota Hilux

Since the start of South Africa 4×4 Rentals, we have been operating on manual transmission vehicles. From our Toyota Hilux & Land Cruisers to our Land Rover vehicles. We have never had any automatic vehicles apart from our recovery vehicle. We are very proud to welcome our very first automatic Toyota Hilux vehicle, Springbok.

Where did the decision arise from?

In the past few years, a few of our clients have asked for automatic transmission vehicles. We have not had any in our fleet until recently when director, Luan Dreyer, decided to get our very first one on board. This was a very well thought out decision from Luan and I must say that it was a great one. The vehicle is amazing both in looks and on the road. I guess that is what you should expect from a Toyota Hilux Double Cab 4×4.


Benefits from the decision

  • Some of our clients are used to driving automatic transmission vehicles. They may even own their very own automatic vehicle.
  • This means that they are most comfortable with driving this vehicle and in turn will enjoy their adventure much more.
  • An enjoyable adventure means happy clients which leads to loyal clients.
  • We now have a wider variety of vehicles to choose from in our fleet.


The transformation!

When we purchased our very first automatic Toyota Hilux, like all our other new vehicles, they come standard. Our well groomed workshop staff then transformes the vehicles and creates the best possible vehicle for your adventure. You can follow the whole transformation process on our facebook page. From the purchase of new Springbok to the final product. You can follow us on facebook using the following link. https://www.facebook.com/SA4x4/

Run Away Clients Card Imprints

Card Imprints – South Africa 4×4

I have seen some interesting things the past 2 weeks. Referring back to my postings about accidents. Some clients do not want to pay for accidents they caused. Some clients just run away and is not to be found. I must admit that I am shocked to see what people get up to. These people have unfortunately spoiled the way we do business hence I have to introduce the following to ensure we get paid as per our rental contract.

We do take imprints of your credit card for R 2500 admin fee, R 20 000 single vehicle roll over and if you booked on standard insurance.


Below samples of the imprints.
