Welcome to Durrence Layne Chevrolet Buick GMC, Claxton, GA’s full-service dealership specializing in all things Chevrolet, Buick and GMC. Formerly, NeSmith Chevrolet, we have been serving our customers for over 43 years.
Owner, Kyle Durrence is a 4th generation agriculturist who walked in for his regular service appointment one day and walked out with a plan to buy the dealership. In his words, “I often say that visit turned into the most expensive oil change in my life.”
General Manager, Cole Hendrix and Kyle Durrence met a few years prior and Kyle liked how Cole did business. “We had discussed the possibility of me purchasing a dealership one day, and us running it together. That door opened and here we are after much thought and prayer. We named the dealership Durrence Layne, using my last name to honor my family and heritage, and Layne to remember Cole’s niece who was a sweet, young lady that tragically died in an auto accident.”
Abby Layne Hendrix died at the age of 15 in an accident in January 2017. When you ask Cole, what was so special about her, he says “everything!” Durrence Layne will be honoring Abby Layne’s memory each year by awarding scholarships to young people in the local community. A very special life was lost. In Abby Layne’s honor, many lives will be enriched, and opportunities afforded to achieve dreams through education and excellence. Kyle and Cole hope that each time you drive by the dealership and see her name, you will smile at the thought of her, and recognize the hope and joy each family member can add to your life, and you to theirs.
“We’re all about family,” says Kyle. “Not only our family at home, but also our family of customers and employees. Our goal is satisfaction, to meet our customers’ needs, and to make everyone feel like family, while building our business on Faith, Integrity, and the American Way. Our hope is everyone will see and feel the difference our dealership offers.”
