About Dayman Motors
The Dayman’s legacy was born in 1965 by Garry’s father and mother, Peter, and Pixie at 172 Bridge Street as a car service business.
In 1971, Dayman’s moved to 201 Bridge Street. Garry stepped in and decided to take on the world of sales began selling used vehicles. Garry admits he was never great with his hands, so selling cars was the next best gig!
The Dayman Motor Group continued to grow and in 1995, the family business moved for the final time from 201 Bridge Street to where the dealership lives today – Corner of Collingwood Street & Halifax Street.
As part of the new location, the family built a Mobil service station next door.
The Dayman’s business has always been about strong family support. Scott has fond memories of watching his pop in the service department while he cleaned cars in the school holidays to earn some pocket money.
While the business experienced a change in hands and a name change in previous years, it was inevitable that Garry and Scott would be drawn back to Dayman’s.
Deciding to move back to the original name in 2021, is special to Garry and Scott. Its pays tribute to the hard work the family has dedicated to the Nelson community. They are proud of being part of the community and hope to continue serving the Nelson community for many more years.
