About us

On 1 February 2021, Hooper Motors (“Hoopers”) acquired Honda in Shelly Beach. The dealership is still conveniently located just off the N2 in Shelly Beach – 494 Izotsha Road. Services offered include new Honda sales and aftersales, a growing selection of approved used cars, continued servicing of all vehicle brands, as well as Matrix tracker fitments.

Hoopers has a proud heritage in the motor industry with humble beginnings in Pietermaritzburg in 1933. The dealership moved to Durban in 1935 and sold General Motors products until 1960 when the franchise changed to Renault. That lasted until 1968 when our central Durban operation took over the Volkswagen franchise. The association has stood the test of time and Hoopers still serves Volkswagen customers in Durban to this day.

The business was founded by Harold Hooper on the premise of "Sales on Service" with the customer at the centre of everything we do. We try to provide a personal touch and our approach to business is one of long-term relationships built on honesty and trust. These are principles that Dave Hooper, great-grandson of Harold and current managing director, still strives to bring to all the company’s business dealings to this day.

Honda South Coast is run by a very capable team. Take a look at the contact section to see who will be taking care of you. The team is headed up by Greg Tutton who grew up not far from Shelly Beach. He is excited to return to take up the challenge of bringing sound advice and personalised service to Honda customers on the South Coast.

So, if you drive a Honda, we cannot wait to see you again! If you are not driving a Honda, well… what are you waiting for?
