UD now in Harrismith
The Free State town of Harrismith is about to become the recipient of the 37th UD Trucks dealership, which will officially open its doors on September 4.
Strategically located inside the Highway Junction truck stop right off the busy N3 highway, the dealership forms part of the Morgan Group and will offer UD fleet owners convenient sales, service and maintenance support.
“Our partnership with UD Trucks spans 12 years. During this time, we have come to appreciate everything the brand stands for and aspires to,” says Dicky Roux, dealer principal of UD Trucks Harrismith.
Gert Swanepoel, MD of UD Trucks Southern Africa, says that the company is pleased to continue its partnership with the Morgan Group, which also owns the UD Trucks dealership in Welkom.
“We have every confidence in the ability of the Morgan Group and its Harrismith team to go the extra mile for UD fleet owners, and to provide them with a level of service that surpasses expectations.
“With the N3 being the main corridor between Gauteng and the Durban port, Harrismith is crucial to our objective of being there for our customers wherever they operate,” says Swanepoel.
Apart from scheduled maintenance and after-hours servicing (by appointment), the Harrismith dealership is also able to assist in case of an emergency breakdown in the area. There are also sleeping facilities available for drivers to use while their trucks are being serviced.
The dealership keeps a full parts department with daily deliveries directly from UD Trucks Southern Africa. It also boasts UD Trucks-accredited technicians and apprentices, as well as a parts manager, general manager and several other support staff.
“We value our investment in the UD Trucks brand, thus all our staff are fully qualified for their respective positions. As an ever-expanding company, we also offer additional skills-development opportunities to our staff to provide our customers with the best possible service,” says Roux.
