Cavanaghs of Charleville appointed Toyota authorised repairer

Cavanaghs of Charleville has been appointed as a Toyota Authorised Repairer for the North Cork/Limerick County region.

The dealership, which is better known for its association with Ford and Hyundai  is now an authorised Aftersales Centre for Toyota, which means it can carry-out servicing, repairs, warranty work, manufacturer checks and software updates on behalf of Toyota. It can also supply genuine Toyota parts and accessories to existing Toyota owners.

The Toyota appointment brings to three the brands that Cavanaghs represents along with the existing brands of Ford and Hyundai. The recent appointment comes on foot of Cavanaghs also becoming an Authorised Agent for Bosch car parts so that it now carries Ford, Hyundai, Toyota and Bosch parts for the public and trade. The Toyota and Bosch appointments will add considerably to Cavanagh’s capabilities in offering a one-stop-shop solution for motorists in North Cork and Limerick county.

The expansion comes on the heels of the company being awarded Franchised Dealer of the Year by the Society of the Motor Industry in 2010. A year later, it was appointed a Deloitte Best Managed company. Cavanaghs has also been acknowledged on several occasions within the Ford network, winning the Ford Chairman’s Award for outstanding customer satisfaction in Aftersales seven years in a row from 1997 to 2003 and 4 years in a row from 2008 to 2011.

The Service and Parts departments at Cavanaghs employ 25 full time staff. It has 16 Servicing Bays including four commercial lifts and it has access to diagnostic software for Ford, Hyundai and Toyota and is open six days a week including Saturdays.
