In 1999, I entered the motor industry in South Africa, starting off an exciting journey in operations and marketing, which saw me progress from Branch Manager of a franchised ACDelco store to Marketing Manager for the Midas Group. I have always had a passion for everything automotive and delivering outstanding customer service, and with purchasing the Pedders store in Salisbury I am looking forward to building a strong relationship with our local community.
Kirk is the youngest member on the team and has over 10 years experience in the mechanical industry. Kirk has also spent a lot of this time fascinated and intrigued by how suspension performs and how to improve it. Spending lots of time on research and hands on learning through his previous jobs at 4x4 accessories dealers, Kirk has a strong knowledge of off-road suspension and GVM upgrades to suit all applications. He prides himself on his strong ‘can do’ attitude.
James has been involved in the motor industry for over 8 years and has a real passion for his work and attention to detail. A keen lover of motor vehicles and motor bikes, James has worked on many vehicles over the years. Whilst completing his apprenticeship he developed a keen interest in vehicle suspension, and wanted to gain more experience in this field. With the Pedders ongoing training offered, James is looking forward to a progressive career at Pedders.
Our team at Pedders Salisbury is highly focused on customer service. As a franchised store we get it: visiting a local mechanic can be downright uncomfortable, leaving you worried you got overcharged or swindled. Pedders Salisbury is different. Owners Michael Turnbull and Debby Webster clearly remember what it feels like to wonder if a mechanic is telling you the truth! Our aim is to run a professional Pedders workshop which is trusted and revered for its integrity, competency and high level of customer service and satisfaction.
We don't believe in scare mongering, but we will tell you the truth if your car is unroadworthy - we want to drive on the road knowing that other cars are safe too!
Safety is a priority to us and we stand by all our work. Don't be afraid to ask questions we like to keep you fully informed and are happy to explain the why's and wherefore's of cars! Our level of service and attention to detail is proving to be very popular as it would be - customers know they can bring their car here to get it repaired properly.
Our mechanics and staff are carefully handpicked and we are proud of them. With a combined total of over 35 years of mechanical experience, they are meticulous, professional and always friendly and keen to explain problems in ways every customer can understand. We prefer to have our customers for the long term, you need to know you can trust us and rely on us to do the right work on your car as and when it is required.
