Are you looking for an established and growing truck mechanics?

All mechanical (especially diesel), repairs and servicing of heavy vehicles on or off-site.

Software diagnostic repairs.

Welding repairs for trailers and curtain repairs of trailers.

The key business features are:

Large premises.

4 roller door garage.

Regular corporate fleet customers.

Major growth corridor.

Why is this business successful?

Operating from a large industrial premise presents the opportunity for expansion as the Victorian Governments Princes Highway West A1 Corridor Strategy (2002) indicates that travel demand is predicted to increase by up to 3.5% per annum. The business comes equipped with a 4-roller door shed large enough for four trucks and additional space at the front and side of gated premises, the location and premise are ideal for handling more work.

The industry is set for growth driven from major road works such as the Princess Highway West Upgrade, stimulating additional business from trucks transporting agriculture, logging, grain growing, dairy and smelter products from the aluminium plants at Geelong and Portland. With additional road projects and committed state and federal government funding over the coming years, this should see improved roads and an increase in heavy transport movement. The project initiatives aim to complete or develop key links. The additional road projects to come are:

Upgrading the Freight Connections to the Port - heavy transports from Melbourne and the Western District that travel via the Geelong Ring Road to the port of Geelong.

Upgrading the Midland Hwy to Bannockburn - Bannockburn has benefited from the opening of the Geelong Ring Road, with growth at the town forecast to increase by almost 90 per cent to more than 10,000 between now and 2036. Safety upgrades on the Midland Hwy to cope with growing traffic and to improve the connections between regional centres have been completed. Planning for the duplication of the Midland Hwy between Geelong and Bannockburn is underway, and funding is required to complete road construction.

Constructing the Ballarine Link (Geelong Ring Road extension) to the Bellarine Peninsula - development plans for Armstrong Creek define a corridor for the East-West connection linking Baanip Blvd to Barwon Heads Road. A detailed corridor planning study to determine the alignment between Barwon Heads Road and Portarlington is underway with the first four sections already constructed.
