As a Regional Franchisor for Jim’s Test and Tag, Grant Anderson was looking for a vehicle to match the high brand standards required. More than that, he needed a vehicle that would comfortably seat his family for long journeys as well as ably carry the high volume of equipment needed to carry out the electrical testing he performs for businesses on a daily basis. Grant got in touch with Driveline and in less than a month he drove away in his ideal vehicle, fully signwritten and at a lower price than he was able to get elsewhere.
“Having seen the kind of service that Driveline deliver, I am confidently recommending them to my new franchisees,” says Grant. “They took all the hassle out of buying a new vehicle – and the deal I got couldn’t be beaten.”
Jim’s Test and Tag has been in business in NZ for 3 years, and Grant was one of the first NZ franchise owners, and the first in Auckland. Their services assist businesses to meet their obligations in providing safe workplaces required under the Health and Safety and Electrical Acts. As a Regional Franchisor, Grant is responsible for a number of franchisees so he needed his own vehicle to be of a high standard, and he also wanted to find a vehicle provider that he could confidently recommend.
Grant spoke to Laurie Brown-Haysom from Driveline, talked through his requirements and then let Laurie take over from there. Laurie presented a number of options – both in terms of vehicle and financing, and took care of all the details which freed Grant up to get on with running his business.
Once they had selected the Nissan Navara double-cab ute, Laurie used Driveline’s nationwide network of dealers to source the vehicle and then passed on the buyer discount to Grant who paid significantly less than he would have elsewhere. Signwriting was taken care of according to the Jim’s Test & Tag brand specification, and all Grant needed to do was pick up his new vehicle.
Grant’s relationship with Laurie and the team from Driveline continues. Driveline is recommended to new franchisees as they join, and as Grant’s business grows they keep in touch in terms of changing vehicle requirements.
