“WE’LL have to make this quick, as I’ve got to catch the Spirit of Tasmania tonight to get these two trailers off to Melbourne, so this is just a quick dash into the Epping Forest Caltex for a refreshment break, and then get on with my return leg to Devonport from Hobart,” Brad Dewis, from Devonport, told us the other day.
He was driving a DeBruyn’s 2017 540 Euro V FM Volvo and towing a B-double at the time.
“I have been with them (DeBruyn’s) for about 20 months now, and I reckon it’s a great job, certainly they are looking after me,” he said.
“I’ve been on the road all up for about 14 good years, and while it, like all jobs, has its moments, all and all it’s a great job and I have no regrets at all.
“Certainly I am liking this Volvo, it does the job nicely, is comfortable and a pleasure to drive, it handles like a big sedan car and you get there without breaking your back!”
Brad tells us he spends his spare time taking the kids out adventuring, and taking it easy!
