The Cockram Motor Group can trace its automotive retailing history back over three generations of the Cockram family, with grandfather Bill Cockram starting what is now known as the Cockram Motor Group back in 1940.
Dougal and Angus instinctively followed in the family business tracks of Bill and Gary, and have now been in business in their own right for more than 23 years, selling quality vehicles to clients throughout the South Island. Gary still keeps a keen eye on how his boys are proceeding, with his own showroom of quality collector’s cars – Vehicles on Montreal – on the far corner of the same block as the family business.
In 1996, Dougal, working alongside Gary, established Gary Cockram Hyundai in Christchurch, a business which has become a leading New Zealand dealership, consistently winning awards for ‘Dealership of the Year’.
Specialists in both new, and used Hyundai, the Gary Cockram Hyundai ‘super-showroom’, which holds Elite Showroom status, features a comprehensive range of vehicles, with their highly-experienced team on hand to help provide the knowledge you need to make informed decisions.
‘In addition, our service department, Cockram Motor Group Service and Parts, also offers the very best terms of factory trained technicians and factory knowledge. We are also constantly striving to make the customer experience something that will bring them back time and time again. We have the goal to be the most reputable and most trusted service department’, says Dougal.
Having embarked on our relationship with Hyundai in 1995, we’re proud to be one of New Zealand’s longest-serving Hyundai dealers. As a consequence, our experience and our knowledge of the cars we sell is second-to-none, while our buying power allows us to deliver unparalleled value for money.
Focused on exceptional customer service, our team are committed to going the extra mile to help each and every one of our clients, whether you’re looking for a cost-effective second-hand model, or a late-model luxury vehicle.
