Valley chooses Barras

VALLEY Computer Services has celebrated 25 years in business by replacing its fleet of company cars with the new generation Hyundai i20 from Barras Car Centre.

Valley Computers take delivery of five new Hyundai i20 vehicles from Barras Car Centre to mark 25 years in business. L-r: Nick Marsden, Tyler Caine, Murray Gilson, Paul Guilmoto, general/sales manager at Barras Car Centre and Valley Computers managing director Gordon Dutton-Queripel.

Managing director Gordon Dutton-Queripel said that after looking at various options, the decision was made to go with Barras Car Centre.

‘We looked around at a number of cars but there were two major points that stood out for Barras,’ said Mr Dutton-Queripel.

‘One was Paul [Guilmoto]’s response and the level of service and the other was the features of the i20, specifically its boot. It has a variable floor and you can raise or lower it and the seats fold flat. It was also the overall package of the car – it has Bluetooth, which we need because our guys use hands-free phones. The reversing sensors and the service package, warranty and the deal from Barras Car Centre made it stand out head and shoulders from anyone else.

‘The way he spoke to us was the way that we speak to our customers and it’s the way we wanted to be treated as customers.’

Mr Dutton-Queripel started Valley Computer Services in 1990 after working as an engineer at Tektronix. The company provides equipment maintenance, supply, installation and support.

Coincidentally, Barras Car Centre is also celebrating 25 years in partnership with Hyundai this year.

‘When Gordon from Valley Computers first approached us for the possible supply of some new company vehicles, we asked him what was important to them.

‘He gave us a list of features that they required and instantly we knew that the new generation Hyundai i20 would complement the dynamics of their successful computer business. The new model i20 had only just been launched and in Polar White with their choice of logo, it looks extremely smart. All this coupled with an industry leading five-year triple care warranty gives them total peace of mind,’ said Paul Guilmoto, general/sales manager at Barras Car Centre.

‘We are very pleased that we were able to supply Valley Computers with their new Hyundai i20s and love the fact that another successful local company has chosen us. The whole team here at Barras car Centre strive to fulfil all our customers’ (old and new) needs and requirements, from new and used vehicle sales to servicing all makes of cars. We are very proud of the service that we offer and treat our customers the way that we would like to be treated, which is pretty much what Gordon has said.

‘We wish Gordon and all the staff at Valley Computers continued success and look forward to being of service to them.’
