The new Bank of New Zealand’s mobile branch, Mobile BNZ, is out on the road in Bay of Plenty, Coromandel and parts of Waikato, with local bankers Judy Wood and Nichola Edwards delighted to be back amongst their community.

Parked every third Friday in the Greerton Countdown carpark, locals from Greerton Village will be able to come and do their banking with a banker between 10am and 3pm.

Mobile BNZ is a cashless banking bus that travels around the country, allowing people to meet face to face with bankers, and will also be visiting Coromandel, Katikati, Opotiki, Te Aroha, Waihi and Whangamata on a repeating three-week schedule.

“We are thrilled to be bringing Mobile BNZ to Bay of Plenty, Coromandel and Waikato,” says BNZ head of Bay of Plenty, Lachie McKenzie.

“Our Mobile BNZ team will be able to help customers with their everyday finances, provide financial advice and health checks, open new accounts and set PINs on cards.

“They will also be able to refer them to have conversations about lending and other products and services BNZ provides,” says Lachie.

Mobile BNZ staff will also support customers to use internet and phone banking.

“Our team are experts at setting up internet and phone banking for our customers and helping them understand and learn how to do their banking online.

“It’s crucial we do what we can to help lift digital skills and we’ve found the digital support offered from Mobile BNZ incredibly popular and successful in the towns we’ve visited,” says Lachie.

For safety reasons, Mobile BNZ cannot carry cash but will be located near BNZ Smart ATMs and staff can assist customers with using them for over-the-counter style transactions such as deposits, withdrawals, making transfers and more.

Customers can either book an appointment on the BNZ website or just turn up on the day.

The BNZ bus will be returning to Greerton Village next on Friday, June 18, from 9.30am – 3pm.

What a joke. Does BNZ honestly think that visiting every 3 weeks (or so) that they are offering a valuable service to the community? It’s a pity mortgage interest isn’t only applied every third Friday :-)
