Varnfield & Maritz
We are a Family business, that pride ourselves on our client service. After 43 years in the business, with thousands of satisfied customers, we will do our utmost best to pair you off with the vehicle of your dreams.
What was once a dream came into existence in 1981, when 2 lifelong friends started living out their passion by selling pre-loved vehicles to the public.
It was back then when they engraved in the foundation of the business, Integrity, Passion and Honesty.
Today, 40 years later the vision of Basil Varnfield and Piet Maritz lives on through Andrew, Desire, and Ilze, who has taken over the reigns.
When you meet the family, you can feel the passion they have for the business.

Years in business
“Great Experience at Varnfield.” I was very impressed with the quality of the vehicle I purchased from Varnfield Motors, also with the staff employed there. I feel great care was given in seeing that I had a good-price vehicle. I would highly recommend this dealership to anyone that wants to buy a quality vehicle. Personnel worked to my schedule, was professional, was willing to negotiate and got me a great rate. After-care is excellent, whereas attention to my needs was prioritised immediately and even exceeded my expectations. If you want a great buying experience and a nice car. I highly recommend Varnfield Motors. I have already spread the word to my friends if they ever wanted to improve their ride.
I would like to inform you that I am really impressed with the customer service that Charlotte Johnson has offered since I purchased my vehicle. She really went out of her way to ensure that everything was on time and ran smoothly. This was the best service I have received so far and I really appreciate the effort and time she made. She is professional and always kept me in the loop with regards to my transaction and or any information that she needed from me or needed to provide me with.
Varnfield en Maritz has been disarmingly open and transparent from the start. All of this process took place, 'sight unseen' as I reside down in Cape Town, an obvious feature for a potential hurdle to developing a trust relationship... So, in a nutshell - a BIG THANK YOU to Jaco Veldsman & Desire Malan!
Excellent and fast service!! Highly recommended and will definitely do business with your company again.
The best by far. Excellent service and most friendly personnel. Thank you. Varnfield & Martiz Motors.
