They say you don’t ever forget your first (fill in the blank…kiss, date, car, etc.). For many VW customers who showed up prior to the actual opening of the new Coastal Volkswagen on Route 53 in Hanover, they will probably not forget the dealership’s first employee, Master Technician Brad Mogan.
“We’ve actually had quite a few people show up over the last few weeks looking to have their car serviced while we were still putting the finishing touches on the façade and service bays,” said Mogan. “Most people were good sports when I told them we weren’t quite open for business. But it was really nice to see the excitement for this dealership.”
Mogan started working for Coastal Volkswagen at the end of June and has been an integral part of getting the new facility ready (it opened for business on August 8). Mogan spent the previous five years as a technician with Quirk Volkswagen in Braintree. Overall, he has 18 years experience as a technician, the majority of those years with VW.
A South Shore native, Mogan resides in Scituate with his wife Heather and their daughter Shelby. When he heard in February that a VW dealership was coming to Hanover, Mogan wanted to get his application to the top of the pile. He didn’t anticipate being employee number one.
“The biggest reason I wanted to work here is probably the same reason so many people are excited about Coastal VW—location. If you live further south on the South Shore, it’s just easier to get here than Braintree, Norwood or even Hyannis where the other VW dealers are,” said Mogan.
Coastal Volkswagen represents the only VW dealership and service center south of Quincy and north of Hyannis for Volkswagen owners who live, work or play in the Route 3 corridor.
“We’re thrilled to have Brad aboard. His extensive experience with Volkswagen has been an invaluable resource to us as we hire additional technicians for the new dealership,” said Tom Norton, co-owner of Coastal Volkswagen.
The new Coastal Volkswagen, located on the southbound side of Route 53 just before the Hanover Mall. The dealership’s future inventory will include 200 new vehicles and a huge selection of high quality pre-owned models. Among the new automobiles coming soon to the Coastal Volkswagen include the much anticipated 2012 EOS, Jetta and Passat.
The dealership’s amenities will also include a state-of-the art service center with eight bays and customer amenities like a kids’ area, high-definition televisions and complimentary Wi-Fi in the waiting area. Coastal VW will also offer a complimentary shuttle service.
