Ebbett Hamilton have opened the doors to their new home in Te Rapa, Hamilton. The purpose built dealership stands with Ebbett Volkswagen on a 25,000m² shared site and features state of the art architecture and a stunning, customer-focused showroom.
Home to Isuzu, SEAT, CUPRA, GMSV and a magnificent collection of preowned and vintage classic vehicles this new dealership takes automotive retail to a whole new level.
The new site in Te Rapa is a comprehensive base for customers with a wide range of services such as multi-manufacturer sales, certified servicing, genuine parts & accessories, finance & insurance, panel & paint and wheels & tyres, all in one convenient location.
Incorporated into the new dealership is a workshop that is home to the Ebbett Hamilton technicians, trained and certified in using approved diagnostic equipment to carry out repairs to the highest standard. The new workshop includes multiple service bays, significantly increasing capacity and improving the efficiency of repairs.
Brand new car wash and grooming facilities put the cap on what is an amazing, industry leading space for the aftersales team to take care of our customer’s vehicles.
Along with our vehicle specialists, Ebbett Hamilton also houses the head-office team taking care of group operations. This team are situated on a second floor that features a boardroom, meeting room, reception and multiple office spaces. The second floor is incorporated into the structure in what architects call “a building within a building” with exposed concrete and steel used in collaboration with floor to ceiling glass sections.
Since 1928 Ebbett has been a household automotive name in the Waikato and the group now represents 20 brands across 17 dealerships throughout the North Island. For Ebbett Hamilton, leaving the city centre was not an easy decision as this is where they’ve served customers for the past 93 years. However, the automotive base in Te Rapa presented so many benefits to the team and the service they can provide, it could not be passed on.
The Anglesea St site which has served us so well will be replaced by the exciting Union Square development, a marque office and retail site strategically located at the south-end of the city’s CBD. This unique lifestyle space will deliver a world-class commerce environment in the heart of the Waikato.
Construction of the Union Square development is well under way with framing steel for the first of five buildings already erected and whilst we are sorry to finally be leaving our home of so many years we are very excited about the opportunity Union Square offers the city of Hamilton as its replacement.
