Nissan Hardbody spells holiday relief

2011-12-20 19:17

BEACH FUN, TOUCH RUGBY, SUNNY SKIES AND.... er, Nissan, which has fielded a fleet of its bakkies and a troop of licensed elves on the Natal coast to help out season-stressed holidaymakers.

Nissan has unleashed a fleet of its one-ton NP300 Hardbody bakkies on the kwaZulu-Natal coastline and highways that promises to do all the hard work while you work at playing!

Nissan’s mission is to relieve holidaymakers with complimentary services to make this stressful period a little more bearable.

Crowded beaches equally crowded car parks and longer-than-usual strolls to the water’s edge will be eased by Nissan’s little elves who will shuttle beachgoers to and from the beach, free of charge, and you can even book a test drive while on the move. One lucky beachgoer could even score a toolbox worth R5000!


At the same time, Work While You Play cleaning teams will patrol the province’s popular beachfronts to ensure they remain sparkling clean.

Those who choose to spend their time off trawling the malls have not been forgotten. Nissan’s “Hard Workers”, clad in red, will be happy to help you push your trolley to the car or take care of that dirty windscreen. You can use the extra time to book a test drive and get free parking, too.

The Nissan NP300 Works While You Play campaign will run at these places from December 18, 2011, to January 2, 2012:

•    Ramsgate and Shelly Beach (December 18-21)
•    Makro Durban (December 22 and 23)
•    Builders Warehouse - Durban (December 24 and 25)
•    Umhlanga beach (December 26-28)
•    Salt Rock beach (December 29 and 30)
•    Builders Warehouse, Ballito (December 31 and January 1)
•    Harrismith Engen Halfway Stop (January 2)
