Brown's business transporting since 1955
FINDING a business that you trust should be your first priority, especially when using them to transport your goods.
One great way of knowing if a business is trustworthy or not is by seeing how long they've successfully run their business for, and how loyal their customers are.
Reginald Brown and his wife have been operating Brown's Citrus Transport since 2002, taking over from his dad who established the business in 1955.
Along this time, the business has grown to employ 40 full time workers in the transport department.
"We run a modern reliable fleet of transport, trucks and trailers to service the industry," he said.
The business consists of refrigerated transport, working interstate and across Australia.
They specialise in grocery cartage, mainly with fresh fruit, as well as cartage from eggs to mushroom compost near Sydney and Melbourne.
While they are based in the Burnett, they're well known in the area for reliably transporting citrus fruits, as shown in their name.
"Gayndah has great customers that support us continually, and so our core business remains there. However, we are a growing business that plans to keep branching out with our coverage," he said.
Mr Brown believes the quality of the staff sets his business apart from other transport businesses around the area.
"Our workers are very experienced and capable, and some of them have been with us for over 30 years," he said.
Mr Brown said his business values reliability and integrity to show customers that the team can do the job in the best of their ability.
"We make sure our customers always feel comfortable, and we will always advise what we're capable of handling before the job starts," he said.
If people require the services from Brown's Citrus Transport, Mr Brown said don't hesitate to call the business to book in a meeting in advance.
