SALES manager Joe Raffaele wants to show Platinum’s customers the range of customising possibilities for these Delicas, using imported and local dress-up components, from alloy wheels to rooftop tents.
The Mitsubishis are bought from Japanese auction houses, based on individual vehicle ratings. “So we work on a minimum rating, rather than a minimum mileage,” Joe said. “We have some here with 130,000km, some with 70km. We try to get as broad a spectrum as we can and cater for the budget-conscious too.”
Platinum is also building up a spare parts inventory to become a one-stop shop for service, repairs and parts for all Delicas.
