Hi, my name is Bill and I have lived in New Zealand with my wife for over 23 years. We love adopting rescue dogs and currently have two gorgeous canine companions.

The start of my working life saw me dedicate over 20 years to military service between the Royal Navy and Royal New Zealand Navy. These years saw me travelling to many countries around the world and included being involved in the first Gulf War, the Bougainville Peace Keeping campaign and patrolling the NZ shoreline for Search and Rescue, Dive Training and Navigation Training. In the last 10 years I have been committed  to working with adults with acute mental health illness across Auckland’s Mental Health Hospitals. Both careers in the military and mental health have been incredibly rewarding.

In my spare time I am a volunteer driver for the Cancer Society and enjoy walking with my wife and dogs.

I am delighted to now provide Companion Driving on the Hibiscus Coast. I look forward to providing a professional but friendly driving service for anyone that wants a reliable, safe and affordable journey.

No matter if it is a short trip to the shops or ensuring you get to the airport on time for your flight, or anything in between, I am your ‘safe pair of hands’ to make your journey a great experience. If this appeals to you, I would love for you to make contact and give me the opportunity to prove that Freedom is the best Companion Driving Service on the Hibiscus Coast.

Personal driving service for tourists based in Hibiscus Coast.

Stress free and flexible. If you are on holiday and don’t want to drive or join a crowded tour try our personalised driving service for tourists. Stop when and where you like. Hire us for a half or a full day. Your own personal holiday chauffeur! We are happy to drive long distances just call to discuss.


Freedom has been a godsend to me. Trapped without transport and a work site not covered by public transport, I was in a quandary about how to get to work. Then I saw an ad for Freedom. Problem solved. My driver picks me up at Silverdale and takes me to work then returns me home. He is always punctual and the vehicle is always immaculately clean. Awesome! Thank you Freedom!


Bill came to my rescue 18 months ago when I commenced my monthly trips to Waitakere Hospital Day Stay. To be able to arrive relaxed and on time no matter what the traffic has been like with Freedom’s professional, caring and amicable Drivers is a big plus for me. Sometimes this has also been with Driver support from the North Shore Bays team. I am always taken care of in a safe, pleasant manner and look forward to the companionship during our journeys which can be up to an hour each way. I can highly recommend Freedom’s valuable Companion Driving Service which has filled a gap in our community.
