Two local businesses win a Toyota Highlander for a year

Local post COVID recovery gets a boost with the Toyota Small Business Driver - DeVille Cafe and R&R Kayaks win a Toyota Highlander for 12 months, and a portion of the Million Dollars of Advertising from the Mediaworks MediaFund.

Nelson's DeVille Cafe, and R & R Kayaks from Marahau, have been selected as two of the 100 small businesses around the country to receive the free use of a Toyota Highlander for 12 months.

The Small Business Driver programme was conceived by Toyota New Zealand, and partnered by MediaWorks, as a way to help small businesses keep moving after the sudden economic shock of COVID-19.

Applications from businesses who had received Government wage support and employed fewer than 20 people were received in June and assessed by an independent panel of judges.

Al Mapperley, Business Manager from Bowater Toyota, said the response to the offer of help was well beyond Toyota’s expectations and highlighted the need for all New Zealanders, businesses and consumers, to support small businesses.

“Over the years many small businesses in this area have been loyal to us and to Toyota. As a result, we have developed strong bonds with our local customers,” Al says.

“The economic impact of the pandemic is making it tough for many small businesses. Our dealership is no different –as a small business these are difficult times. But Toyota has the capacity to help and a heart that cares about other businesses and the local economy.”

100 Toyota Highlanders available to help keep small businesses moving

To mobilise and support small businesses impacted by COVID-19, Toyota New Zealand are providing 100 businesses with a Toyota Highlander SUV for 12 months.

Toyota, in partnership with Mediaworks’ MediaFund, is calling for small businesses to apply for the use of a Toyota Highlander for a year and a tailored advertising campaign including media and creative material.

Andrew Davis, Toyota New Zealand Executive, said Toyota had been impacted by COVID-19 like most businesses, but was able to mobilise its resources to help out other business owners.

“Small businesses are the backbone of the New Zealand economy and many have been loyal Toyota customers for decades. In these difficult times they need all the help they can get – from Kiwi consumers, from the Government and from other, larger businesses.”

“Toyota cares about business owners and their employees. We’re part of everyday life in New Zealand and want to help businesses to keep moving during these uncertain times. Any way of reducing their expenses will help so we are drawing on our inventory and putting up 100 Highlanders for use for a year,” Andrew said.

Any small business can apply for the Small Business Driver package. They just need to show they employ fewer than 20 people and have received the Government’s wage subsidy.

Almost there folks! Right from the start in 1945, we remain committed to the local communities we operate in and pride ourselves on offering our customers a regionwide network of brands to choose from. All our BMG showrooms and workshops will be open for onsite business under Covid alert level 2 from tomorrow, 14th May. We will be minimising contact through physical distancing and strict contact tracing policies and respectfully ask that when you do visit us in store you adhere to our health and safety guidelines. This is to ensure the safety of everyone.
When you come into one of our businesses we ask that you maintain a social distance, as exciting that it is to be out and about again.... We will also collect some personal information off you, as this enables us to follow the government’s contact tracing requirements. If you are taking a vehicle for a test drive, or picking your vehicle up from a service, we will ensure the vehicle is thoroughly sanitised before we hand the keys over to you.
We continually strive to make Driving Your Dream as easy as possible, but if you do have concerns you can just give us a phone call.
We look forward to seeing you in one of our stores soon!
