Testimonials

I dealt with Mark Hill who was outstanding to deal with.....

"I have never purchased a car before sight unseen from a foreign country!  I dealt with Mark Hill who was outstanding to deal with. He gave me the confidence to pay cash for the car before I even arrived in New Zealand. I ordered a tow bar kit and imported a cargo tray from the US and Mark arranged, without any complaint, to have them installed prior to my arrival which meant delivering the car 20 kilometres away for the installation. He also arranged to have the cam belt and water pump replaced as well as arranging the installation of a fancy multimedia system with GPS, a reversing camera and sub-woofer from a separate company. During this process we exchanged over 40 emails and at all times Mark was extremely helpful and accommodating as we has some issues with the cargo tray lighting system but he said we would work through it and we did. 

You can have complete confidence in dealing with this gentleman and with Shackel Motors in general and I highly recommend buying a car from them!"

"Their Attitude was fantastic, only to be outdone by their willingness to answer any questions..."

As a first time car buyer, I had a lot to learn and a lot of questions, as someone who is always looking for good value while maintaining good quality and friendly customer service while maintaining the professional attitude to keep me confident, I was very happy to have decided on Shackel Motors.

Their Attitude was fantastic, only to be outdone by their willingness to answer any questions. Their honesty was refreshing and all of their Vehicles had clearly been maintained and looked after beautifully.

My particular salesman Jonathan Petrie was no exception, Kind , professional and knowledgeable and honest, a pleasure to talk with.

As for value, I was happy to have been part of the "Buy Direct System" which saved me alot and Shackel Motors were more than happy to sit me down and talk me through the buying process in language that I could understand.

I recommend Shackel Motors to my friends and family and anyone interested in a future vehicle purchase.

"It was such a relief to find a truly accommodating and enjoyable person to deal with..."

We bought a vehicle from Jonathan Petrie (JP) at Shackel through their Buy Direct system. After a difficult experience with a different motor dealer it was such a relief to find a truly accommodating and enjoyable person to deal with. Nothing was too hard for JP and he always made us feel so welcome at his dealership. The Buy Direct system meant we got a really really sharp price, and we weren't under obligation to buy the car. But after we saw the mint condition it was in when it arrived, it was a done deal! I'd definitely recommend JP to my friends because I know he always had time for us, he had our best interests at heart, he worked hard to find solutions to any problems, and he's a genuine guy. We felt like we could trust him throughout the process. Thanks again JP

Shackel Motor Company more then looked after my family and I in the purchase of our new car. The service we received from salesman Mark and finance manager Rachel was second to none and made this purchase a breeze. Almost a year down the track and I still love my car - Thanks Shackels!
