Goldwagen as it is known today, had
a small beginning in 1992. The current owners rented their first
building in Pretoria West with the idea of supplying spares to
Volkswagen motor vehicle owners. There wasn't a large variety and
both new and second hand spares were sold. From the start there was
a central motivation to supply quality spares at reasonable prices.
This philosophy has stood them in good stead over the years.
It became evident to the founders
that there was a demand for their products not only in Pretoria, but
all over the country. They decided to expand the business by means
of agencies and today the Goldwagen franchise group has twenty four
branches in operation countrywide.
From the start it was evident that
their products were popular, and the range was increased to a list
of more than 3000 products of high quality replacement parts
suitable for Volskwagen, Polo and Audi vehicles that is currently
available. New products, that were not available previously are
added to this list almost on a daily basis.
The original name of the business
was Golfwagen, but as a result of discussions among the
stakeholders in 2003, it was decided that a name that could be
registered as a trademark should be selected. As a result the name GOLDWAGEN
The product range consists of both
imported and locally manufactured spares, and since 2001 certain
products are supplied under the WAG brand. In 2001 the Worldwide
Automotive Group was formed to act as a buyer/warehouse with their
own exclusive WAG brand distributing to the expanding Goldwagen
franchises. The high level of confidence in this range has resulted
in it carrying an 18 month guarantee.
Electrical and electronic spares,
normally does not carry a warranty as a result of their sensitive
nature during installation. To compensate for this however, the
Goldwagen Bellville agency offers a means by which all electrical
and electronic spares may be tested prior to purchase, and thereby
confirm that the specific item is functional. (This is a service
that is not common with spares shops in general.)
All other products carry a twelve
(12) month warranty.
