BM Tech Canterbury has expanded into the workshop next door.
Car Sales Announcement
Eight years ago, when we moved to our current location on Canterbury Road,
the size of the new workshop was a huge contrast from the old Box Hill site;
Canterbury was so big! However, it’s amazing how quickly we out grew it.
Our customer base is growing rapidly and we are beginning to experience the
same issues that were evident in our old workshop. We desperately
needed more room to move and additional areas for work bays.
Fortunately, the property next door became available just in time so we made
the decision to expand.
We now have four more working bays and a wonderful new car park at the front
which will make drop-offs and pick-ups even easier than before. Our capacity
to service and repair cars and provide better, more efficient customer
service has improved noticeably.
BM Tech Car Sales has closed its doors. After 4 years of trading we decided
that selling cars was not as important as our Service Department. The
Service Department was growing faster than we expected and we needed the
extra room. We found the car sales industry to be very
competitive & difficult to find good cars to sell, particularly ones that
met our high standards. With the service workshop rapidly growing, it
was only logical to close the used car sales area and expand the repair and
service side of the business.
The winner of the "Win a Samsung TV" competition was Pamela
Green from Melbourne. Congratulations to Pamela for winning such a great
prize. A big thank you to all who entered the competition. It
was very successful with nearly 1000 people entering. Looks like we
may do another one this year! We'll keep you posted.
New BMW 3 Series Has Arrived
The winner of the BM Tech "Refer a Friend" competition for
2011 was Mr Arthur Apostoleros from Footscray. Arthur referred a
couple of new customers and for that he won a dinner for 4 people at the
superb Grossi Florentino Restaurant valued at $400.00.
A very big thank you to everyone who referred new clients, it was one of the
biggest years for referrals we've ever had. Remember, this is an
ongoing competition where a new winner is drawn every December, so good luck
for this year.
The all new BMW 3 Series or F30 as we call
it has arrived. There will be three versions available in Australia;
the economical and surprisingly powerful diesel engined 320d,
the new 328i will have an engine that is actually a four
cylinder turbo which will combine the best performance with terrific
economy, and then there’s the 335i with the incredible
turbocharged six cylinder engine. These cars have been designed with
near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution for amazing balance, handling and
agility. I think these new F30s are going to sell very well.
