Key stop on trip up north

The Weekend Post - Motoring - - OFF THE BEATEN TRACK -

WHEN plan­ning your next trip off the beaten track, make sure you visit the team at Cairns to Cape 4x4 be­fore you head out.

The lo­cal four-wheel-drive spe­cial­ists have ex­pe­ri­enced me­chan­ics and can do a pre-trip in­spec­tion of your ve­hi­cle.

They will make sure it is me­chan­i­cally work­ing 100 per cent, to get you to your des­ti­na­tion and back, has­sle­free.

They are also the home of Iron­man 4x4 in Cairns and have an af­ford­able range of four­wheel-drive sus­pen­sion, bull bars (winch com­pat­i­ble), snorkels, winches, re­cov­ery gear, tow­bars and more.

Owner Nathan Lock­yer has more than 25 years of four­wheel-drive me­chan­i­cal and sus­pen­sion ex­pe­ri­ence.

He says Iron­man 4x4 makes good qual­ity gear at af­ford­able prices.

“Any­one who owns a four­wheel-drive or is think­ing of buy­ing one and is think­ing of head­ing off-road should drop in and see us,” Nathan says.

He says he is truly pas­sion­ate about four-wheel-drives and help­ing peo­ple en­joy their time in the great out­doors, while also en­sur­ing they re­turn home safe and sound.

All the staff mem­bers at Cairns to Cape 4x4 are four­wheel-drive en­thu­si­asts them­selves, so they know how im­por­tant it is to set up a ve­hi­cle cor­rectly be­fore head­ing out on a trip.

“It’s all about help­ing cus­tomers cre­ate mem­o­ries us­ing their four-wheel-drive,” Nathan says.

“We en­sure that all of our cus­tomers know how to cor­rectly use all the equip­ment we sell.

“En­sur­ing their safety is paramount, es­pe­cially when us­ing re­cov­ery equip­ment.

“There is noth­ing bet­ter than when a cus­tomer re­turns af­ter a hol­i­day and shares their ex­pe­ri­ences and photos with us.”

Nathan’s top five items you should never go bush with­out:

1.Up­graded four-wheel-drive sus­pen­sion kit 2. Snorkel 3. Bull bar 4. Winch and re­cov­ery gear 5. A good beer/wine fridge Cairns to Cape opened 15 years ago, and the team looks af­ter cus­tomers from the tip of Cape York through to Cairns and across the Table­lands.

Iron­man 4x4 is Aus­tralian owned and all prod­ucts are de­signed and tested for Aus­tralian con­di­tions and dis­trib­uted through­out the world.

Nathan Lock­yer and the team from Cairns to Cape 4x4 can help you pre­pare your four-wheel-drive cor­rectly be­fore you head out on a trip.
