Hello & Welcome!
We love cars. We love to look after our customers.
Roger has been in the car game for umpteen years (over thirty if you want to be more precise). He is an award-winning dealer with an extensive and varied portfolio.
He cut his teeth many years ago at the very busy Turners Car Auctions in Auckland, where he was, at different times, an Auctioneer, a Vehicle Valuer and a Vehicle Buyer. He then spent many years as a Vehicle Buyer for the Japan-based Marubeni Group, buying cars for their Nissan dealerships across Auckland. Roger was Sales Manager for Winger Subaru and from there he started up his own business in Auckland, specialising in disposing of trade-ins from large car dealerships. This is where Harpers for Cars began. He then moved to South Canterbury for a more relaxed lifestyle and has since been involved with the running of Holden dealerships locally.
He was recently awarded the highest accolade in the worldwide GM Dealer Network – The Grand Masters Chairman Award which recognises GM's top-performing international dealers.
Roger works on the KISS theory - Keep It Simple Stupid.
Do the basics and do them brilliantly.
Feel free to call / email / text to tee up a time to come and view the vehicle you're interested in.
No pressure. No sales pitch. If you like it, that's great. If you don't, that's fine too. We're cheerful, positive and friendly and prefer to help you buy a car, rather than try and sell you one. Bring the kids. They can meet the chooks, goats, dogs and cats. It's a family affair here at Harpers for Cars.
Love it? Buy it!
Test drive on quiet country roads. We'll put the billy on and you can join us for a cuppa while we complete the formalities.
Drive away and enjoy your new car, knowing that you have bought a car from someone who not only knows his stuff, but loves cars and cares about your driving experience.
