Small Business Award 2020 – Burgess Automotive

Recognising a business that sets a high standard of performance, service quality and customer satisfaction

The Small Business Award recognises ‘a business that sets a high standard of performance, service quality and customer satisfaction’ and this year the very worthy recipient was Burgess Automotive, a family owned business that has been operating in the North West of Christchurch for more than forty years..

Wayne and Janet Burgess started their first automotive business in North Road in 1977 before moving to their present location in Sturrocks Road twenty years ago. They have now been joined by their son Jeremy and from humble beginnings they have progressed to a staff of seven and have premises and equipment that would be the envy of much larger automotive companies in Christchurch.

They understand that the North West of Christchurch is constantly expanding so keep up to date with the changing needs. Their service is backed by the Motor Trade Association whose membership depends on a high level of performance which they are very proud of.
