This week we spoke to Ashruf Adam, Dealer Principal from Sure Drive in Durban as part of our mission to share the great people within the South African automotive industry.

He gave his valuable time to unpack some of the most important things that car buyers need to consider before making a purchase.

Ashruf says that trust & transparency are the keys to a safe purchase.

“If you’re buying from a dealer, make sure you know who you’re buying from. Insist on some sort of quality check from the dealer, a report or something to that effect, so you know exactly what you’re buying.

So we, as a dealer, we do that, so we know exactly what we’re selling and the customer knows exactly what they are buying, therefore we are both on the same page.”
