CJD Tasmania takes DAF Dealer of the Year award

CJD Equipment Tasmania is the first-ever Tasmanian dealership to win a PACCAR dealer award. The company was recently crowned ‘DAF Dealer of the Year’ for 2013 at the RACV Torquay Resort on Victoria’s Great Ocean Road.

The highly sought-after DAF Dealer of the Year accolade is judged on a points system across five main areas, including general dealership performance, truck sales, customer service, finance and parts support.

Speaking at the awards ceremony, PACCAR Australia’s Managing Director, Mike Dozier, commended CJD Equipment Tasmania for its outstanding DAF sales, service and support.

“The DAF Dealer of the Year award is not about who sells the most trucks, but which dealer provides the best overall performance for the customer. CJD Tasmania is most deserving of this award. It is an excellent example of a DAF dealer and a credit to the CJD group,” he said.

“This dealer operates from first-class facilities akin to those in major capital cities on the mainland. Most importantly, it has maintained high industry standards for a number of years by providing exceptional customer service in every facet of the business.”

CJD Tasmania’s State Manager, Daniel Rice, said he was delighted to accept the DAF award on behalf of all his staff.

“The DAF Dealer of the Year award belongs to everyone who works in our two Tasmanian dealerships – especially our DAF salesman, Service Manager and Parts Manager and their respective teams, who are all genuinely passionate about this premium brand,” he said.

CJD Equipment Tasmania is a unique PACCAR dealer, in that it comprises two dealerships in Launceston and Hobart. It has been a DAF and Kenworth dealer since January 2008.

PACCAR Australia also presented the DAF Service Dealer of the Year award to Brown & Hurley – Brisbane, and DAF Parts Dealer of the Year award to Kenworth and DAF of Melbourne.
