On the 6th March 2020, our team members excitedly attended the New Zealand Volkswagen Dealer of the Year Awards.
This is an annual event where Volkswagen New Zealand recognises and rewards all-round excellence, celebrating achievements across the NZ dealer network at every level; Parts, Service, Finance, Passenger Sales, Commercial Sales and Marketing.
We are proud to say that we walked away with some amazing results this year from both our Hamilton and Taupo branches. Most notably, our Hamilton team were awarded the title as the Overall Volkswagen Dealer of the Year.

The night was also the first outing since the Volkswagen brand re-fresh, which includes a revised brand logo soon to be launched. The evolution of the Volkswagen brand was on display and you could walk by ‘Volkswagen in the ages’ – which was especially complimented by the heritage venue that it was in, the grand Auckland Town Hall. Another highlight of the evening was watching and listening to the host of the evening, Hilary Barry. She guided the evening with humor and a true understanding of the Volkswagen community.
It was a great feeling to be recognised for all of our achievements over the past year. Thank you to all of our customers who made this possible for us.

Last week we had the pleasure of delivering one more vehicle to IT Partners which completed their Volkswagen fleet.
While we were there we asked IT Partners Director, Andrew Johnson, “What made you choose to transition to VW for your entire fleet range?”
“Ebbett Volkswagen are so easy to deal with and they’re there when you need them. When we have extra staff starting, it [a new car] just happens. When we make changes, it all just gets taken care of. I sign a few bits of paper and we just get new cars all the time, it really makes life easy.”
“On top of that, the vehicles are better/safer for our team, and the VW brand fits in well with our brand values.”
“If I had to describe Ebbett Volkswagen in three words, it would be reliable, onto it, and organised.”
