Big Rigs - - ADVERTISING FEATURE -

MICK Smoothy, owner of Mic­jay Truck Re­pairs, is known Aus­tralia wide for his ex­ten­sive knowl­edge in Euro­pean truck, bus and trailer re­pairs.

Mick, who is based in Toowoomba in Queens­land, has been in the in­dus­try for more than 28 years and knows Sca­nias and other Euro­pean trucks like the back of his hand.

He started at a lo­cal Sca­nia re­pair and trans­port busi­ness back in 1995, where he stayed for al­most 19 years.

He then ven­tured out on his own in 2013, with his trusty Hilux equipped to do break­downs and be a mo­bile me­chanic.

It wasn’t long be­fore Mick knew that the de­mand of cus­tomers that were both loyal cus­tomers fol­low­ing him and new ones that he was go­ing to need a work­shop.

Cus­tomers come from all over Aus­tralia just to get Mic­jay Truck Re­pairs to work on their ve­hi­cles and have come from Western Aus­tralia, North­ern Ter­ri­tory and New South Wales to name a few.

Within four-and-a-half years of Mic­jay Truck Re­pairs run­ning, it has now grown to a fam­ily run busi­ness with two of­fice staff - Mick’s wife and daugh­ter and six other me­chan­ics, two of whom are his son and son-in-law, as well as Mick him­self.

The work­shop has more than 70 years com­bined ex­pe­ri­ence in Sca­nia truck re­pair, with one me­chanic Dar­ryl, who did his ap­pren­tice­ship un­der Mick back in 1999 when Mick worked at the lo­cal Sca­nia dealer.

Dar­ryl was the first Em­ployee Mick hired when he started Mic­jay Truck Re­pairs.

Two break­down utes, which are used to travel to jobs all over Queens­land and New South Wales, have trav­elled over 50,000km to jobs within the last four-and-a-half years.
