About Tasman New Cars

Tasman New Cars was founded by Jack Kofoed with the sole intention of removing the bitter tastes and unpleasant aspects of the car buying and selling process. Shortly after Jack was joined by long time best friend Andre Heimgartner with the two joining forces to take on the best providing class leading customer service across New Zealand & Australia.

Both Jack and Andre’s passion has always been cars and going fast. With Jack growing up racing domestically in New Zealand before making the move to Australia where the journey in automotive retail began as a Trainee New Car Consultant on the Gold Coast. Within two years Jack had progressed into management and has since spent years successfully working with brands such as KIA, Honda, Holden, Ferrari and Audi.

Now returning to New Zealand, Jack has set out to iron the kinks in the market and make changing cars a pleasant and fun experience.

Andre’s story is one that embodies many of the great qualities required to succeed. Reliance. Determination. Talent. Relentless. Meticulous. All paired with an almost sickening work ethic. All the attributes that enable Andre to bring a new level of value to the Tasman New Cars business.

  • We purchased this car. Jack was excellent and responsive to deal with. His business is a welcome addition to the market and I would definitely deal with him again. The next time will be as a vendor.

  • Without doubt the most hassle free vehicle purchase we have ever made. Jack goes above and beyond with his customer service and attention to detail, not to mention very competitive prices. Honesty and reliability is so hard to find in the car sales industry but we certainly found it here!

  • We purchased a car through Tasman New Cars for our granddaughter. The process was effortless from negotiation to delivery 2 hours south of Auckland. Car was delivered with a full tank of petrol which was much appreciated by our granddaughter. More importantly was the after sale follow up. We have purchased many cars over the years and never has anyone followed up whether we were happy with our purchase. We give Jack and his team 10/10 for this sale!

  • I can honestly say this was the best experience we have had buying a car. Jack was professional from start to finish and not pushy or overbearing in any way..
