Wideland Group opens new dealership

Western Star Trucks dealer Wideland Group has recently opened a new location on the Sunshine Coast.

The new dealership houses a 1,125 square-metre facility with four full-depth truck bays and two drive-through express service bays.

Located just off the Bruce Highway at Chevallum Industrial Park, it has a larger workshop and sales area than the previous Sunshine Coast facility.

With 20 metre wide roads it affords easy access for B-doubles.

The dealership also comes with an extensive warehouse to allow a greater stock of inventory and a parts express delivery service expected to commence some time in Q2 of 2022.

Wideland Group Fixed Operations Manager, Mark Dobson, said the new location will provide the business with a variety of benefits across its products.

“The newly-opened Chevallum Industrial Park afforded us the opportunity to build a facility that has improved customer access as well as an enhanced layout to showcase our Western Star, MAN, Dennis Eagle, and Detroit products and services,” he said.

“By investing in an express-service platform truck hoists, an additional four-post set of fully-wireless hoists, bunded bulk oil tanks, and centralised oil distribution metered gantries, our customers will realise increased efficiencies and turnaround times,” said Dobson.

“We are also now offering in-house weighing and brake test services.”

According to Dobson, the larger facility and new equipment combined with the expansion of sales and after sales teams will attract the best talent to support customers in the Sunshine Coast region.

Toll was one of the first major carriers to move into the site with a  new purpose-built facility it opened two years ago.
