And if you take a pit-stop at Brian Roderick Motors today, not only will you receive his expertise – you’ll also get value for money.
Brian Roderick ready to help you find your dream car.
Brian remembers the very first car he sold. "It was in 1972. I worked for the local Holden dealer and it was a brand new Holden Belmont. The price was $3422."
Brian Roderick Motors has been on the corner of Cameron Rd and Sixteenth Ave since 1982 – but Brian’s been selling his own cars since 1978.
"I think I’m pretty much the only dealer left in town from the 1970s, it’s been great fun all the way."
One of the first to head to Japan in the mid-1980s, when importing Japanese cars was emerging on the used cars market, Brian believes the Japanese cars are good value for money.
"I just believe they’re the best value for money you can buy on the used car market; that’s what I’ve specialised in since 1988 when I first recognised that."
Testament to that is Brian does a lot of repeat business. "I sell to the grandchildren of customers.
"I like to look after people when they buy a car off me; I like to think I go the extra mile."
And look after people Brian does. All of his imported cars have a standard six-month warranty, with verified and certified mileage, a full service; and Brian says he will fix any problems with his cars.
"I believe I offer some of the best value for money you can get anywhere in the country."
