Ultimate cars is a family owned and managed body shop that is motivated to keep their operation efficient with all state-of-the-art equipment. Sagren Narainsamy has developed an amazing company along with some major help from a good management team which consists of his wife Viloshini Narainsamy and son Trinolan Narainsamy. Ultimate Cars management team holds excellent customer retention levels by making sure that repairs are delivered right first time with utmost quality and ultimate customer satisfaction.
“Automotive Body Repair Specialists”, “Quality Workmanship”, “Best Results” – are the company’s slogans and the words that define their business.
The company has managed to maintain highly skilled staff over the years that have assisted in keeping up with demands of efficient body repair and customisation. Walking through the spotless production hall, the area of constant investment and upgrades can quickly be seen with Aer-o-cure spray booths, Car-O-Liner chassis benches and a three-dimensional measuring systems as per manufacture specifications , all put to work to effect professional structural repair every time. Generally speaking, a meticulous workshop.
Ultimate Cars are also very proud of being a level three BEE operation. Their goal of advancing skill levels has seen the new development at the company where a fully equipped training centre can be found in-house. They will eventually become the apprentice testing centre for the Durban area for their final skills testing levels. They are also a key member of the Collision Repair Association (CRA) in Durban. Their memberships are supplemented by high end brand approvals like Izuzu, Mazda, Ford and multiple others in the current works. The company walls are packed with official factory approved certificates accompanied with testimonial assurance from a many Insurance companies.
“Process optimisation in the repair cycle is a never-ending story,” says Sagren, “You need the very best staff commitment and specialist tools to stay ahead.” The company’s interest does not remain at its customising fitting section, but it includes vintage restorations.
The quality crusade has been maintained by the company for over two decades as the skills development side of the company focus has gained official sanction from trade bodies in panel beating repair. The company’s website is packed with superb truck custom builds.
Perhaps the key feature of the Ultimate Cars operation in Prospecton, Durban, is the plain fact that their seamless way of conducting customer damaged vehicle repairs shines through on every repaired unit. That’s a hard act to get right in this business, but the Ultimate Cars team deliver on that promise every time in KZN. The family can be justifiably proud of that.
