Our Community

As a Canterbury-owned and operated business with a history spanning more than 20 years, we know how important it is to get behind our community. We’re proud to be involved with a number of local organisations, initiatives, and events.

Proud to Support the SPCA

We’re immensely proud to support the SPCA, helping to drive a better future for the pets of Canterbury. As pet lovers ourselves, we have a mutual interest in furthering the care and protection of animals in need. We’d noticed that SPCA’s fleet was looking tired, with some vehicles not suited to their particular uses, so we worked with the SPCA’s team to put together a fleet they could be proud of.

We’re honoured to be able to provide the type of hard-working and dependable vehicles that the SPCA team needs to do what they do best, advancing the welfare of animals in our community.

Israel Dagg

Miles Continental is proud to be the driving force behind New Zealand rugby legend, Israel Dagg!

We’ve put Izzy into a proper ute in the form of the Volkswagen Amarok V6 as we felt a high performer needs a high performing set of wheels! He’s already received some excellent feedback from the team and is loving the 580Nm of torque that his new Amarok delivers.
