The city is home to the first SAC Bakkie Centre, which has opened on the corner of Meteor and Chromium Road in Uraniaville, Klerksdorp. The new SAC Bakkie Centre will offer all that SAC has become known for, including world class vehicle servicing and performance enhancement, but it will focus solely on pick-ups and the growing SUV leisure market.
In support of this new innovation, SAC has partnered with the off road and lifestyle specialists at Safari Centre 4×4. This means that the new SAC Bakkie Centre not only offers vehicle maintenance and performance enhancement services, but also a comprehensive range of off road conversion equipment and accessories and the technical expertise to fit this equipment.
According to Charl Roos, SAC Trucks and SAC Bakkie Klerksdorp co-owner, the overwhelming increase in requests for commercial vehicle enhancements and accessories made the decision to create the new SAC Bakkie Centre easy. “And who better to compliment the SAC culture than a well-established and prominent entity in the 4X4 sector than Safari Centre!”
Says SAC Trucks managing director, Hein Lategan: “SAC has become a lifestyle which is expressed in both work and leisure. We at SAC cater for both the truck owner that needs to keep his vehicles operational as well as the customer who wants to enjoy his vehicle or bakkie during his free time.”
The SAC Bakkie Centre builds on the expertise and nationwide network of the SAC Group. Today, SAC employs over 375 staff and has a network of 10 SAC Truck and general 10 SAC service centres. It also caters for Harley-Davidson owners through its SAC Raging Bull centre and has a world-class Engineering division.
Using this network, the SAC Bakkie Centre starts from day one with highly specialised technical staff on board and access to the Steve’s Auto Clinic warehouse and distribution system, which delivers daily to Klerksdorp.
The SAC brand also means that bakkie and SUV owners who service and upgrade their vehicles at the new centre will have all the benefit of SAC’s affiliation with Unichip and Powerplug for performance enhancements and the peace of mind of the company’s Why Worry Warranty that guarantees all service parts and workmanship.
“By drawing on this nationwide SAC network and that of Safari Centre 4×4, the new SAC Bakkie Centre can offer high-quality and affordable service parts for all main brand bakkies and SUVs and a range of accessories that are readily available and regularly updated,” says Charl Roos, co-owner of the SAC Bakkie Centre and SAC Trucks Centre in Klerksdorp.
The SAC Bakkie Centre has opened its doors on 1 April 2016. For more information, contact Jaco Smit on 087 551 7627.

Bolt on exhausts
Gone are the days that you take your half a million-rand Bakkie to a corner exhaust shop for a cheap free flow exhaust. It’s fair to say that the bolt-on free flow exhausts of today at SAC have been revolutionized and are becoming more and more popular amongst the enthusiasts. It is no longer just a poorly welded and routed exhaust that rattles and knocks over every bump, it is a properly engineered, big bore, mandrill bent stainless steel-low restriction exhaust system. It is manufactured in such a way to be a bolt-on fitment in a workshop with very little effort to ensure perfection. Seeing the exhaust system in its raw form, packed and laying on a shelf – it is clear to see that this is an export quality product that will be installed on your vehicle, and it will compliment without any doubt – the performance enhancement plug and play kit and or upgraded intercooler system in many ways – most of all the sound and power will be much improved. The bolt-on exhaust system is routed along the exact same rout under your vehicle and hangs with similar brackets on the standard rubbers. The heat protection that has been provided by the manufacturer under your vehicle to protect the undercarriage is still effective and useful with the fitment of these bolt-on exhaust systems. So, if you want the ultimate Bakkie performance enhancement package speak to our sales and service advisors about a bolt-on exhaust system. Contact us today for your free quotation.
