Col Crawford’s is launching our ‘WE’ Brand Campaign.

Col Crawfords is launching our ‘We’ Brand Campaign.

We are Crawfords… That is, the entire company, and all of the staff and the extended Crawford family, interacting with our Northern Beaches community.

We have been looking after our customers motoring needs for over 50 years. We don’t believe there is another car dealership on the Northern Beaches like Col Crawfords. We are very proud of who we are, what we stand for and what we have achieved. Our We Brand Campaign reflects on our history, touches on “the now” and announces the future.  We know that there is little difference in product and price these days and that the market is very competitive. The real difference for the consumer is the brand, the culture of the business and being rewarded with the best customer service experience.

We have 3 locations: Brookvale, Narrabeen and Mona Vale. We have 8 leading brands and sell over 5,000 cars a year.

We will be the first car dealership on the Northern Beaches to seriously get behind Electric Vehicles, giving our customers a choice of product and also assisting them to address their domestic power solutions at the same time.

We remain very proud of our past and who we are today. We continue to invest in our people, our facilities and state-of-the-art technology, so that we are geared for tomorrow.  We will always value and respect the origins of the business, as well as the core values that have been our foundations for over 5 decades.  But even more importantly we understand that what will drive you tomorrow will be different from today.

We have. We do. We will be here to look after you in every way. We is a commitment; a promise – and the future is exciting.

Nissan announcement

Further Information on the Non-Renewal of the Col Crawford Nissan Dealer Agreement

As of 31st August Col Crawford ceased to be a Nissan Dealer. After 47 years of representing Nissan (originally known as Datsun), Nissan Motor Company Australia has chosen not to renew our Dealer Agreement. This decision by Nissan has not been performance based. Such as a Manufacturer (Franchisor) can design and have in place in a Dealer Agreement with the current Australian legislation and franchising codes, non-renewal, and in our case the franchisor has simply made the decision not to renew the franchisee’s (Col Crawford’s) term as a Dealer.

Our 50th Birthday Year … Let the Celebrations begin!

Our 50th Year … let the celebrations begin!

In May 1967 my Father, Col Crawford, started his own business on a small block of land in Brookvale. Dad was really lucky that a Bank Manager was prepared to back him, lending him the money to buy the Pittwater Rd land that had a burnt out cottage on it.
