Company Profile

2003 saw the opening of Merit RV. This yard has taken off with a flourish, selling a large range of new and second hand motorhomes, campervans, and caravans.

Now with three yards, each specialising in a particular market, the business can provide vehicles for every need. "The separation of the business into three yards gives people the opportunity to go to the yard whichever specialises in the type of vehicle which best suits their individual need", Paul Butler, Managing Director explains. The Merit RV yard is managed by Nathan Butler, one of Paul’s sons who is well qualified to advise customers of the features and benefits of owning or even renting a motorhome or campervan. He is aptly supported by Ken McLean who has a number of years experience in motorhoming and brings a fresh perspective to customer service. Justin, Paul’s oldest son is in charge of detailing and grooming.

In 2005 the yard was doubled in size to provide one of the largest selections of quality second hand motorhomes and campervans in New Zealand.

"We sell our lifestyle vehicles throughout New Zealand, and have a number of overseas customers. Our overseas customers often purchase to keep or arrange a buy back agreement with us for anything from 3 months upward. This often works out very economically compared to renting."

“We are now importing brand new Swift caravans from England which are superb in finish and feature. They are of such good quality that it leaves a lot to be desired in the NZ and Australian manufacture equivalents which are up to 500kg heavier and therefore harder to tow with heavy down loads on the towbar. We have researched the market and believe we are now offering some of the best value new caravans available in New Zealand.”

Merit on Leach sells later model, high-grade cars imported direct from Japan and priced at $9,000 and above. This yard is managed by Paul Butler, who was inspired by his fathers involvement in the motor industry from the early 1950’s, and who helped Paul start into the industry in 1990. He is aptly supported by Terry Kidd who has over 30 years in the industry.

Merit on Molesworth sells mainly under $10,000 vehicles mostly traded vehicles from the other yard with a few first time imports to add to the flavour. Craig McMurray capably tends to the needs of customers on thiis yard. With the wide selection of quality vehicles we have available, customers have a wide range of choice but, as with the other yards, Merit RV and Commercials will buy to a customer's requirement if they do not have something specific in stock.

All first-time imports imported vehicles purchased by the Merit Car group undergo stringent inspections, complianced to New Zealand Standards, mechanical servicing, Warrant of Fitness, full grooming and detailing before being sold.
