Why All Second-Hand Car Dealerships Are Not The Same

Some Pretorians are rightly concerned about some of the used-car dealerships in the city. One day, you drive by a previously desolate corner and suddenly there is a purveyor of pre-owned vehicles doing business on the premises. Not long after, they are gone, only to be replaced by something else. What is the point buying from car dealerships that are here today, gone tomorrow? How can you tell whether they are honest, will give you a good deal, and will even be around if you have a problem? Nobody wants to overpay and be done in by a fly-by-night establishment, so be sure of whom you deal with.


Atterbury Motors bucks the trend by having been around for so long and having become so well-known in Pretoria that everybody knows who we are. Unlike some car dealerships, we are in it for the long haul and our showroom at the corner of Johan Heyns Drive and Fred Nicholson Street has become a well-known landmark in Wonderboom South and a trusted name in the industry. There are several good reasons for this:

Testimonials. Talk to our customers, search online, and peruse Hello Peter and you will see a common thread – our customers love our service because we value their needs. That is why we get so much repeat business.

Affiliations and accreditations. Unlike used-car dealerships of doubtful repute, we are members of or affiliated with various respected industry bodies, such as the Independent Dealer Association, the BlueChip Dealers group, and the Motor Industry Ombudsman.

Regulated in-house F&Is. Our finance and insurance providers on the premises are registered with the Financial Services Board and all the financial services we conduct are audited monthly by VAPS Consultancy (Pty) Ltd.

Ethics. All our employees share our vision and values of honesty, integrity, and transparency and they are hand-picked through a thorough process psychometric testing.

Trade-ins. We offer excellent prices on trade-ins and even if your vehicle is not suitable for our showroom floor, we will most likely be able to sell it elsewhere in our dealership network.

Value-adding products. A variety of products are available, such as a deposit protector, retrenchment cover, tyre/rim cover, roadside, assistance, and mechanical warranties.

Our vehicles. Last, but arguably the most important, the vehicles on our showroom floor set us apart from other used-car dealerships. Reflecting the needs and buying habits of the market, only the best reaches our stock list and all vehicles have to pass an AA DEKRA roadworthy test and are detailed to remove all their small blemishes before being offered for sale to you.


A Changing Market


Market conditions have changed and we have changed in pace with it to offer our customers what they want and need. To this end, the vehicles on our floor reflect current buying tastes and we always have a wide range of bakkies, SUVs, crossovers, and city cars available. Dealerships that don’t sell what the market demands are doomed to fail and we make doubly sure that we keep our finger on the pulse of the industry so that you will always find what you are looking for when shopping with us.
