Newly opened sales display centre now at Farmer Autovillage Coromandel

By Jack Biddle

Much like its parent company situated in Mt Maunganui, Farmer Autovillage Coromandel, based at 6 Abrahamson Drive Whitianga, has experienced rapid growth since its inception in April 2021.

Farmer Autovillage celebrated 30 years in business late last year and has always strived to offer customers total vehicle care services. “With the addition of our recently opened sales display centre, which is located next to our very busy service operation, we can now continue that theme and essentially offer that same one-stop-shop experience for motorists on the Coromandel” says locally based Sales Executive, Brent Willcocks.

The sales centre has a large range of the latest products on display including Plug-in Hybrids and fully electric vehicles. “There are a tremendous amount of changes happening within the industry overall with electrification of the fleet now becoming a topic of interest and discussion for the average motorist. They are perfect for some consumers, but not the preferred option for others just yet, so we encourage people to call in and discuss their own particular motoring needs with us. Our model range available for test drives and sale is extensive and includes well established brands such as Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda, Subaru, and Jeep as well as recent arrivals to the New Zealand market, HAVAL, GWM, MG, SEAT and Cupra. We are even agents for the popular Roller team and ZefiroMotorhomes,” adds Brent who has a wealth of knowledge in both sales and service, after spending the majority of his working life in the auto industry.

For those looking at a used vehicle, Farmer Autovillage Coromandel has direct access to the literally hundreds of stock units held in Mt Maunganui, and Brent can once again talk through options and arrange test drives as required from the sales centre in Whitianga. He will even do a thorough vehicle appraisal and provide an estimated trade-in valuation if required.

In addition, there is absolutely no pressure placed on those wanting to call in and simply ask questions or seek some clarity on any specific technical aspect of all the new technology now available.

Group Managing Director, Michael Farmer, is excited about the future of the Coromandel in general and is delighted that Farmer Autovillage can play its part in the Peninsula’s continued growth with helping to meet the current and future needs of motorists in the region. “We pride ourselves on being a one-stop-shop operation for our existing and potential customer base and have total confidence in the Whitianga based team to continue to represent our business and the vehicle brands we sell with distinction. The new sales centre is a sign of our commitment to the region and I encourage people to visit, check out the overall package we offer and have a chat to Brent and the team about all things motoring.”
