In News2 MinutesBy NZ Trucking magazineAugust 11, 2023

Transport Repairs Christchurch has been named Southpac Trucks Dealer of the Year for 2022.

It marks the first time the company has received the honour.

Since 2017, TRL has steadily expanded its operations, establishing dealerships across the South Island. Its latest full-service dealership in Templeton, Christchurch, commenced operations in their new facility in May 2021.

Situated strategically to cater to the trucking customers around the south and west of Christchurch and being amongst the largest Transport Repairs sites, Christchurch added another vital link to TRL’s network of exceptional dealerships.

The award ceremony took place during Southpac’s annual dealer event, where dealers from all over New Zealand travelled to Arrowtown to celebrate the 2022 year. TRL Christchurch also picked up the highly sought after Parts Dealer of the Year and a Service Excellence award at the same event.

The Southpac Trucks Dealer of the Year award is highly sought-after and is bestowed upon the dealership that demonstrates outstanding performance across five key areas: customer service, training, warranty processes, parts sales and overall dealership performance.

Mike Webster was on hand to receive the awards and he was able to share this with fellow director Jason Popplewell and regional manager Brent Soper.

Webster said he felt deeply honoured to be recognised as the top-performing dealer by Southpac Trucks and extended thanks to the dedicated team of technicians, service, and support professionals who played a pivotal role in achieving the recognition.

“With this award in hand, the dealership looks forward to upholding their exemplary standards and continuing their successful journey in the years to come.”
