Who says there is no such thing as a free ride!
In a continued effort to support locals, Norgarb Properties offers a FREE ride and errand running service with their fun Tuk Tuks, which never fails to put a smile on people's faces.
You will no doubt have seen these cute three wheelers zooting around the Harfield Village, Claremont and Kenilworth areas and perhaps wondered what they are all about.
Due to nature of this service and in the spirit of fun and community Lew Norgarb (Principal Norgarb Properties) asks that folks remain patient and understanding of any mishaps, availability being the most obvious concern. Also that as this service is FREE, it is hoped that any issues that do arise will not reflect negatively on the superb service levels of the Norgarb Property Company.
Norgarb would be very grateful for your feedback, (whatever it may be) as a means to improve the service as it grows.

Lew Norgarb says, “I continue to look for additional ways to put something back into the local residential and business community.” His property company currently sponsors the following initiatives: The design, print and distribution of a local fun map plus an additional restaurant directory, (both of which are freely available at their office). Annual events such as the Carnival, Halloween, and Carols in the Park are also supported. This community website, online business directory, a Facebook page as well as regular newsletters are a further contribution to the area.
The intention is to deliver a FREE, fun and friendly service. “These Tuk Tuks are cute, full of character and add a smile to people’s faces,” says Norgarb. “We hope that this fun, creative and useful service will be put to good use by all.”
