Natrad Rockhampton Named Franchise of the Year

15 August 2016

Natrad Rockhampton recently triumphed over 80 other nation-wide franchisees to be named the Natrad Franchise of the Year for 2016.

Aside from the prestige of the award, Natrad Rockhampton received $3,000 for their efforts, which they donated to the Give Me 5 for Kids appeal.

Natrad Rockhampton and its partner business, Coxon’s Radiators, have been looking after cars, light vehicles and corporate fleets in Rockhampton since 1997.

The family-owned and operated business has grown in the last twelve months, as Natrad Rockhampton and Coxon’s have moved into their brand-new building just off Alexandra Street.

The location, close to town but also on the doorstep of Parkhurst’s industrial area, means dropping your car in on the way to or from work or school is easier than ever.

Natrad Rockhampton is also the first Natrad Autocare store in the country, with the workshop now a full-service destination for logbook servicing of all makes and models (from just $159), roadworthy and safety certificates, air-conditioning and radiator repairs and more. The purpose-built mechanical facility in the Natrad Rockhampton building can service up to six vehicles at once.

Natrad Rockhampton Operations Manager Joel Heazlewood says the Franchise of the Year honour is fantastic recognition for the Rockhampton team, beating out other businesses in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

“We’ve always seen strong local support for Coxon’s Radiators and Natrad Rockhampton. Winning over franchises in larger areas shows that we really do provide great service,” said Mr Heazlewood.

“Our team at Natrad Rockhampton goes above and beyond to make our customers’ experience with us a positive one. We’ll explain things to you in plain English, and make sure your vehicles are not only pleasant to drive in, but safe on the road.”

Safety on the road is an issue that the team at Natrad Rockhampton are passionate about. During Queensland Road Safety Week from 22 – 28 August, Natrad Rockhampton will be giving away a free vehicle service every day.
