“Continuing to operate as North Harbour Hyundai, and Isuzu and Renault North Harbour located at 175-178 Wairau Road, Glenfield, Auckland the change of ownership will have no impact on our customers wanting to visit our locations just a few minutes off the motorway on the North Shore.”

The appointment of Dealer Principal, Nicholas Tsimas, who has been working successfully in the car industry in South Africa and New Zealand for more than 18 years will return his wealth of knowledge to the Ingham Group and has already proved himself as a real asset, Trent Ingham points out.

“The challenges New Zealand, and especially Aucklander’s have endured over the last weeks have been tough, but I hope everyone managed to find some silver lining during these times. We have certainly utilised the time to prepare our new dealerships to open safely for our customers and our team, with contactless services available across all departments. We are offering test drives, vehicle valuations, competitive finance rates, technical support and of course our factory-trained and qualified team is here for all service and parts requirements.”, according to the Dealer Principal.

Ingham North Harbour guarantees that all touchpoint surfaces within and around the vehicles are sanitised prior to test drives, deliveries and service pick up’s to keep everyone safe. Contactless test drives from home or workplaces can be arranged and the delivery of new vehicles to any location across the North or South Island represents just one aspect of the exceptional service on offer.
