We fight for you History shows us that some automotive manufacturers have tried upsetting local motor dealerships through a number of means. These include setting unreachable sales targets, restricting dealers from having multiple brands and threatening to not renew Dealership Agreements if the business is not sold. M+K's Motor Dealers team has assisted clients in this position through a range of unique strategies. These have included improving business performance through our commercial team and disputing the validity of sales targets. We've also assisted Dealer Principals get all their affairs in order before selling their business to achieve maximum sale price.
Protecting your business On 30 January 2012, the introduction of the new Personal Property Securities Law came into effect. Our Motor Dealers team has been working with dealerships to ensure they protect themselves, their businesses and their assets when selling vehicle or parts.
When things don’t work out We have assisted clients in disputes ranging from customer complaints over alleged defects, customers not paying, and recovering vehicles from Wholesalers who have fallen into Administration.
