A sole focus on clients and team well-being drives exponential growth at Powerstar Somerset West.
“Clients are number one and so are the people working for us” says Wiehann Van Tonder from Powerstar Somerset West. “We like to invest in our own people” and this stands for this dealership’s philosophy. Can you truly keep your clients happy, if your own people aren’t? An efficient, well run dealership, starts with the heart of the dealership – it’s people.
Van Tonder has had this dealership for three years and seven months – their four-year mark is just around the corner. They opened as a pre-owned department as they “saw a huge opportunity for a truck sales department” in Somerset West. Van Tonder further explains; “there are many industrial parks nearby that were in need of good, reliable trucks that are more affordable than currently in the market”.
So that’s exactly what they did – affordable, reliable and just simply great trucks is what they bring to the table. This dealership now specialises in Powerstar FTSeries Trucks.
What Van Tonder likes most about Powerstar is that the trucks are “reliable, have a low running cost and price”. In the end for Van Tonder, “it’s a good value proposition”.
This dealership is the one to call for truck services in the Somerset West area because they have “been in the motor business for many years” and for that exact reason, they have “learnt what clients expect from a service and a retail side”.
