In 1988, AAD Truck & Bus first opened its doors to sell commercial vehicles to business owners in the Cape Town area. The dealership, situated in Epping, has been a franchised dealer for UD Trucks SA for the past 19 years. The dealership is in the process of upgrading its premises and once all the renovations are completed, an investment of approximately R750 000 will have been made. A complete overhaul is taking place, and some of the major renovations include:
- Painting of interior and exterior building
- Upgrades to offices including air conditioning and wall art
- Additional signage and flags
- Customer and driver facilities upgraded
- Sales and Parts departments upgraded
- Dedicated area for technicians to diagnose and work on job cards
AAD Truck & Bus dealership clients include SA Metal, Parmalat, Fleet Africa, Laser Transport, Faircape Dairy as well as Cape Town municipalities.
It is a well known fact that a pleasant and aesthetically pleasing working environment contributes to employee morale, motivation and improved productivity. Since we started with the renovations, an increased sense of pride has been instilled in all our 65 employees. They feel proud to be associated with AAD Truck & Bus and UD Trucks, and now enjoy inviting customers to come and see what we do at the dealership.
“The upgrades have also resulted in improved and more efficient workflows,” said Allan Thomas, dealer principal of AAD Truck & Bus. Some of the dealership’s biggest clients include SA Metal, Parmalat, Fleet Africa, Laser Transport, Faircape Dairy as well as the City of Cape Town and surrounding municipalities.
Feedback from customers are positive and they now regard the dealership as warm and inviting, more safe and secure for trucks and drivers and a welcome and refreshing change. As one customer put it: “This is what a truck dealership should look like!” Congratulations on your new fantastic-looking dealership, we are sure it will make many more good impressions on current and future clients.
