Well-known truck and trac­tor busi­ness grows

Central and North Rural Weekly - - MAINTENANCE FEATURE -

TOOWOOMBA busi­ness DT Truck and Trac­tor has en­tered an ex­cit­ing new sea­son of growth. Known for its qual­ity prod­ucts and friendly coun­try ser­vice, the fam­ily-owned busi­ness has been part of Toowoomba’s land­scape for more than 80 years.

Now recog­nised as Toowoomba’s Daim­ler Trucks and New Hol­land dealer, the truck and trac­tor deal­er­ship has been build­ing mo­men­tum since its change of own­er­ship in June. In ad­di­tion to its line-up of trucks and trac­tors, the busi­ness also runs a busy ser­vice cen­tre, parts store and smash re­pair shop to take care of all its cus­tomers’ after-sales needs.

Along with work­shop fore­man Bren­dan Fisher, Trevor Thorne leads a team of 12 tech­ni­cians.

DT Truck and Trac­tor can ser­vice any make or model of truck, with the fac­tory-trained tech­ni­cians spe­cial­is­ing in Mercedes-Benz, Freight­liner and Fuso ve­hi­cles.

Cus­tomised ser­vice plans are of­fered for each new truck sold and 24/7 road­side as­sis­tance is pro­vided.

In ad­di­tion to the grow­ing ser­vice cen­tre, the busi­ness has also re­cently de­cided to ex­pand into Gat­ton after be­ing ap­pointed the New Hol­land Agri­cul­ture and Con­struc­tion dealer for the re­gion.

Led by lo­cal Steph Nielsen, the Gat­ton store spe­cialises in parts for New Hol­land’s range of farm ma­chin­ery. It will also co-or­di­nate sales and ser­vic­ing for DT Truck and Trac­tor’s cus­tomers through­out the Lock­yer Val­ley.

For cus­tomers in Western Queens­land, the busi­ness has part­nered with ser­vice cen­tres such as BDS Me­chan­i­cal in Roma for ser­vic­ing closer to home.
