Setting up a new shop, next to the N3
“Trucks, especially those of the calibre of a UD Trucks vehicle, are measured on their work rate,” says Ron Byng, dealer principal of Combined Motor Holdings (CMH) Commercial UD Trucks. “In order to remain profitable, a truck fleet must spend as much time as possible on the road. With that in mind, we have invested heavily in creating a one-stop shop for fleet owners.”
CMH is expanding its commercial vehicle offering with a R45-million investment in a new state-of-the-art UD Trucks dealership in Pinetown, KwaZulu-Natal.
The company adds that, together with the existing CMH Commercial UD dealership in Pietermaritzburg, this new facility will further enhance the company’s service to truck fleets on the N3 highway – one of South Africa’s busiest transport routes.
The new dealership sports some specialised services, such as brake and roadworthy testing, which can now be undertaken on site. It also offers full 24-hour roadside assistance, after-hours servicing and a dedicated express service facility for time-pressed fleet operators.
Byng adds: “In designing the new facility, we have also considered support services that fleet operators require. Our trained dealership team can source, finance and insure trucks as well as offer specialised advisory services to customers who may be unsure which truck to buy and where and how to best equip it.”
Jebb McIntosh, CEO of the CMH Group, concludes: “CMH recently decided to expand our business through the development of brand new dealership facilities. Our R45-million investment in the Pinetown dealership not only supports this goal, but is a sure sign of our commitment to the South African economy and its trucking lifeblood.”
