Welcome to 2021. We are back from holidays (lounging on the sands of our local beaches). We are refreshed and already in the swing of helping our customers continue to build their Kombi lifestyle for 2021.

2020 reminded us of the simples pleasures we were often too busy to see and as we settle into a new normal, we are becoming more familiar with the idea and need to travel and explore our own backyard.
