Motus Honda West Rand places customer service first
Motus Honda West Rand continues to excel
Motus Honda West Rand is a well-established dealership located on the West Rand of Johannesburg. It is a flagship Honda dealer in the province and one of the biggest in South Africa measuring 8000 square metres.
One of the main reasons why this dealership has remained successful throughout the years is its staff complement, a large contingency of which have been with the dealership for many years. This includes the dealer principal, Colin Chipps, who has been in his position for 15 years.
General sales manager Maxine Prince has been with the Honda brand for 18 years and with Motus Honda West Rand since 2010. She has occupied her current position for nine years and during that time Prince has received numerous accolades including Motoring Woman of the year in 2019.
Motus Honda West Rand has been a regular recipient of the dealer of the year award in recent years. “The success of Motus Honda West Rand is built around customer service and our long-standing staff compliment has resulted in a family feeling. We all understand that customer service drives future business,” explains Prince.
“The dealer principal has been in the same position for many years and grew all the managers from within, so we have all grown together and have the same ethic that includes the high value which we place on customer service,” adds Prince.
“Being part of the Motus group affords us several advantages as well as increased buying power. As a group we can hold more stock and very often buy in bulk at more competitive prices.”
“The last few years have been a challenging time for the automotive industry but what we have done is allow our sales staff to cross sell across new used and demo vehicles as well as our Subaru franchise. This ensures that our staff are happy and that they are able to get customers into a car that suits their needs and budget, no matter which floor it is parked on,” she says.
“We will do as much as possible to assist our loyal customers, which includes the best trade in prices as we never want to lose a deal because of a trade in price. If this means making less profit on that deal, then so be it as the number one priority is helping our customers and, in most cases, this results in repeat business. In order for our sales force to be successful we have given them more flexibility to give discounts and do deals and this has been key to our ongoing success,” continues Prince.
Honda currently boast an exciting product offering which includes brand new models such as the Civic, which has been shortlisted as a Car of the year finalist and the all-new BR-V. During 2023 new models such as the CR-V in seven-seater guise and the new Type R are expected to arrive in showrooms.
“Honda’s build quality remains second to none and they continue to offer some of the best compact cars on the market. The Amaze continues to be very popular with retail and fleet customers looking for a quality compact sedan,” adds Prince.
The workshop at Motus Honda West Rand services all makes and models of vehicles.
“Many of our Honda customers have other cars in their garage too and our competitive pricing, qualified technicians and high-tech equipment have seen the variety of cars that are booked into our workshop increase. Being part of the Motus group affords us access to any information required as well as parts needed to service and repair all makes and models,” explains Prince.
Motus Honda West Rand is situated on the corner of Hendrik Potgieter &, Jim Fouché Rd, Weltevredenpark, Roodepoort.
