When locally owned and operated Holden dealership, Beecham Motors, purchased the Nissan dealership business from John Page Motors back in June of this year and relocated it to their Bribie Island Road premises at Caboolture they were prepared for a few bumps during the change over and moving phase.

According to Beecham Motors’ General Manager, Lockie Beecham, he and the team have been surprised at some of the hurdles they faced during the transition process. “We knew it was going to be challenging to ensure past John Page Motors customers knew about our new location for Nissan service, parts, and new vehicles,” said Lockie. Caboolture Nissan is the new trading name for the Nissan dealership, and the entire franchise and some existing John Page Motors staff have been fully incorporated into Beecham Motor’s purpose-built facility at 29 Bribie Island Road Caboolture.

“I’m proud of the hard work our team has done behind the scenes, as we’ve tried to a minimize disruption to our customers’ experience,” he said. Lockie said that he believed Beecham Motors’s reputation for customer service over the past 31 years with Holden would be translated across to new and existing Nissan owners in Caboolture. The purchase saw Caboolture Nissan bring across around 28 staff from the former Nissan dealership. The Beecham Motors dealership now employs around 50 people in the Sales, Service, Parts, Finance, and Pre-Delivery divisions.

He expressed his appreciation to new and existing customers for their patience and to his staff for their hard work during what was sometimes a challenging transition. “We would like to particularly thank John and Jan Page for their involvement in the local community over the past 41 years as a strong family owned and operated business. We saw the opportunity to continue those same values and family involvement by bringing Nissan onboard alongside our existing Holden franchise.”

While the business continues to adapt to the needs of local customers, the new Caboolture Nissan team is looking forward to proving that Good Service is Always in Fashion, is more than simply a slogan, and is instead a challenge to be met by his team.
