Sparkling Auto Care Centre Menlyn is a great concept where customers can have their cars repaired or valeted under one roof. There is a huge demand for small area repairs – and growing – as clients can repair their vehicles without losing their no claims bonus. Often the repair actually is less than the excess on an insured vehicle.
Any driveable damage can be taken care of as well such as mag wheel restoration. Sparkling Auto Care Centre is approximately 450m2 in size and employs 35 people. They believe in developing their own employees and do a lot of training and investing in their team. Business is split 50/50 when it comes to repair and valet.
“Since we switched to the DeBeer refinish brand we hardly have any reworks. We have found it to be a very cost-effective system which is important as paint usage is our highest expense item in the shop,” said Pieter van Aswegen, director of the company. “The time it takes to match colours has improved too and at the end of the day, those time savings is another important factor to our bottom line so as to deliver the vehicle back to the customer on time and good as new.”
The simple-to-use tools from DeBeer have been key in keeping colour accurate and consistent. “Morné Koen and his team at Nancefield Auto Paint in Pretoria have been instrumental from the start in helping us achieve optimum workflow and colour precision. Without their guidance, expertise and ongoing support, it would have been a much longer and expensive journey to achieve what we have done.”
This excellent aftersales service and personal attention to clients is what differentiates the team at Nancefield Auto Paint Pretoria and really helps enhance the DeBeer brand experience. “They really do care that we operate at the very best levels of delivered repairs,” concluded Pieter.
