Southern Business Services have been Autoworld Zimbabwe’s clearing agents for the last 9 years and we couldn’t be more pleased with their service. Colline, Mary and the SBS Team have gone above and beyond to assist us with clearing of vehicles / trucks and all our other queries in our dealings with Zimra. We have been blown away by their willingness to help, as well as their knowledge and understanding of our core business.
