Dan Seaman: Driving on for 5 decades

Wednesday, 12th August, 2020 5:32pm

A customer-first approach by Dan Seaman has allowed him to command the position of one of the most respected automobile dealer in Cork for the past five decades. 

Clonakilty was home to Dan Seaman’s first car-dealership in the mid-1980s, before later relocating to the city centre where the business is now situated on Forge Hill

His focus on customer-service skills have been adopted by his children - Gerard, Rohnan, Gavin and Annemarie who also play integral roles within business.

Lots of customers have kept returning to Dan Seaman since his humble beginnings in the ‘80s. Working alongside his family, the two-storey dealership has evolved over the years into a modern, state-of-the art facility.

Dan Seaman said: “Dan Seaman Motors has been witness to many changes over the past 50 years, but our client-first philosophy will always remain the same.”

The Seaman family operate as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for both existing and prospective car owners, offering everything from mobility vehicles to car maintenance services carried out by the aftersales team.

Dan Seaman Motors has established itself as the main dealership for brands such as Mitsubishi, Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Jeep and Fiat Professional in Cork.

Due to the pandemic and the inability to operate in-person services, the team at Dan Seaman Motors strategically developed an online car-showroom for customers. This enables customers to generate trade-in requests, apply for car finance and receive trade-in value quotes, all from the comfort of their own homes. They have also introduced a convenient ‘test-drive-from-home’ concept, in which a member of the team will come to the customer, removing the need to travel to the dealership itself.

Seamans understand the needs of an evolving society. Their client-first philosophy has allowed them to maintain the status as one of the most highly regarded dealerships in the industry.

With a commitment to ensuring trouble-free motoring and the best value vehicles for their customers, it is no surprise that the Dan Seaman Motors dealership - still managed by Dan Seaman himself - has thrived for the past 50 years.

Their ability to react and alter their offering should ensure their viability in serving the community of Cork for a further 50 years to come.
