We are located in VIC, NSW, QLD


1800 BUGGIES (Est. 2001) is owned and managed by Pip Jewson and facilitates the hire of utility vehicles locally and interstate to large corporations and world stage events.

In 2012 we opened our Brisbane branch, with the success and demand of our products from our customers who already use our buggies in Melbourne but also managed events in Queensland. They didn’t want to sacrifice the quality of our products and services for anything less.


Overtime the demand for our services grew to a point where there was a need for us to look at the Sydney NSW market, because no one had the vehicles that we were able to offer at such a high level and quantity.

2015 the decision was made to open in Sydney, backed by our loyal customers, and various events that take place in all capital cities. We now have over 100 buggies in our fleet that allows us to transport them between states for major events and festivals.

Over recent years 1800 BUGGIES has been the supplier of utility vehicles to world famous international events such as the:

  • Formula 1 Grand Prix
  • Phillip Island Moto GP
  • Melbourne International Flower and Garden show
  • Masters Golf Tournaments
  • Deniliquin Ute Muster
  • Australian War Memorial
  • Tough Mudder
