Piet Steyn , the founder of Golden Rule Motors , decided to take early retirement in 1995 due to health reasons. He had been involved with Mercedes Benz and Honda for 25 years by this time and had acquired a very well earned reputation as a problem solver on Mercedes Benz cars.
He never intended to sit around and do nothing, but thought that he would stay busy by servicing the odd car for friends and acquaintances. He soon realised that he would have to start a small workshop since he was overwhelmed with work at home.
He then started Golden Rule Motors with his son Piet Steyn jnr ., also a Mercedes Benz qualified mechanic, at small premises in Durban road, Bellville.
The name Golden Rule Motors was an inspired choice. When Piet started thinking of a name for his fledgling business he knew that he wanted to base his business on exceptional service and customer care. He was given the name when he prayerfully searched for a name. “Do unto others as you would like them to do unto you”. This philosophy is the “Golden Rule” and is the basis of our business approach.
In the twenty years since that small start, Golden Rule Motors have grown to a business that still adheres to those same principles of customer care and service excellence, but now has a team of employees with modern equipment and a passion for Mercedes and Honda cars.
Come and meet the team and become part of our family.
