SAC gives bakkie owners a new home
Klerksdorp is home to the first Steve’s Auto Clinic (SAC) Bakkie Centre, which offers the vehicle servicing and performance enhancement for which SAC has become known; focusing solely on bakkies and the SUV leisure market.
Focusing on a small number of vehicles from well-known brands means the SAC Bakkie Centre can offer a one-stop-shop to the owners of these vehicles. The services offered include vehicle maintenance and servicing, performance enhancement and dyno tuning, as well as the fitment of off-road and leisure equipment together with specialist advice.
In support of this new venture, SAC has partnered with the off-road and lifestyle specialists at Safari Centre 4×4 – making a comprehensive range of off-road conversion equipment and accessories available, together with the technical expertise to fit this equipment.
Says SAC Trucks MD, Hein Lategan: “SAC has become a lifestyle, which is expressed in both work and leisure. SAC caters for the truck owner, who needs to keep his vehicles operational, as well as the customer who wants to enjoy his vehicle or bakkie during his free time.”
According to Charl Roos, co-owner of SAC Trucks and SAC Bakkie Klerksdorp, the overwhelming increase in requests for commercial vehicle enhancements and accessories prompted the decision to create the new SAC Bakkie Centre.
Customers benefit from the company’s “Why Worry Warranty” that guarantees all service parts and workmanship. The SAC Bakkie Centre builds on the expertise and nationwide network of the SAC Group.
Today, the company employs over 375 staff and has a network of ten SAC Truck centres and nine general service centres, as well as an engineering division.
