Avis Van Rental Rossburgh
Rossburgh Van HireAvis Van Rental’s Kwazulu operation first opened it’s doors in Durban on 1 July 1999, celebrating its 7th anniversary in July this year.
We were the third of the founder franchises to open after Cape Town and Kempton Park. We operated from premises subleased from NMI Prospecton, not knowing that 5 years down the line the owners of NMI, namely Barloworld, would one day also be the owners of Avis Southern Africa.
Our initial fleet of 15 bakkies has grown by a 100 % and we opened offices in Pietermaritzburg in August 2002 which is ably run by Dion Scannell and more recently in Riverhorse Valley located in Riverside Bus Park.
Our original staff namely Aslam Lokhat in operations and Penny Veck in sales are still with the company and form the nucleus of a contingent of 16 staff members: Tracy Bruce - administration, Carol Naylor - sales, Norman Perumal - operations and our two driver supervisors - Patric Kweyama and Fazal Mosthapha.
Avis Van Rental Durban can look back proudly on the last 5 years, having established the brand in the region as one of the market leaders, achieved consistent growth, operated profitably, established a sound customer base consisting of major corporates, government departments, small and medium businesses and individuals.
We look forward to the next 5 years with great enthusiasm, particularly in light of the recent announcement of our successful 2010 soccer world cup bid and the ANC’s successful KZN regional election results - which will result in Pietermaritzburg finally becoming the official Provincial Capital with a positive spin-off for our Pietermaritzburg operation.
