Avon City Ford commenced trading in 1965 from the current five-acre site opposite the southern roundabout on Blenheim Road, the main arterial route south out of Christchurch. Since then, it has developed into one of the major dealerships in the South Island selling Ford passenger and light commercial vehicles. Avon City Motorcycles operates from the same site with the Suzuki and BMW franchise.
With over 100 staff on site plus a satellite service centre in Rangiora, Avon City Ford covers all motoring needs with expert salespeople, a finance department, car and light commercial technicians, parts advisors, a full paint & panel division and a grooming department.
All new vehicles are prepared on site where they are put through a comprehensive pre-delivery check and road test and any accessories are fitted according to the client’s instructions. The grooming department completes the vehicles to ensure they are delivered in pristine condition.
Used vehicles are fully checked mechanically prior to going through the paint and panel department to bring them up to our high standard for resale. Our in-house buying team only retain the best possible vehicles for resale. Our finance department offers competitive rates on lease agreements and can organize finance through several vehicle-focused providers by tailoring finance packages to suit all individual needs. We also have a full Auto Training department with a number of course spanning multiple NCEA levels and qualifications as well as a number of industry certified courses.
