Welcome to

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.
