CARPENTERS MOTORS officially opened its doors to customers at its new dealership and “diamond class used vehicles” over the weekend.
Principal dealer Peter Gregory said the dealership was another arm of WR Carpenters Group of companies trading as Carpenters Motors and has branches in Fiji and Vanuatu.
Its used vehicles sell for up to K20,000, with two vehicles worth more than K20,000 to be won through drawing of names of customers who do a purchase at the yard.
The names will go into a draw and two customers names will take home a Mitsubishi Pajero worth more than K15,000 and a K5,000 Lancer.
Gregory said with the launching of its ‘Diamond Class Used Vehicle’, cars bought under this concept would receive a safety sticker and free inspection for as long as they owned the cars.
“They will receive six months free service, six months engine warranty and a 20-point mechanical check as after sales services,” he said.
He said the vehicles sold
were locally used cars from existing vehicle brands sold in Papua New
Guinea as well as those imported from Japan.
Gregory said apart from the existing vehicle brands sold in the country, they were looking at importing Range Rovers from the United Kingdom next year and Kia from South Korea in the near future.
Used cars sold there include Hilux Surf, Toyota Camry, Corolla, Lancers, Cefiro, Toyota Land Cruiser, Prado and Hyundai.
The grand opening on Saturday was celebrated with a sausage sizzle, a bouncy castle for kids, a visit from the national rugby sevens team and three give-away cheques for cars bought on the day.
