Grays, Australia’s largest marketplace, is proud to offer the outstanding assets of Speedie Contractors, due to the imminent retirement of the owners. Speedie’s is an institution in Queensland, having been in continuous operation for over 60 years.
Speedie’s is a second generation family business, currently run by brothers Simon and Timothy Knowles. From humble beginnings with a couple of eight tonne tippers servicing local oil refineries, Speedie’s has flourished to become a leading heavy vehicle contractor in south-east Queensland.
With the retirement of the Knowles brothers, there is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a range of quality assets. Grays will be conducting an unreserved auction from July 16-22, 2020, with all items starting from $9. Assets include late model Kenworth, DAF and Mercedes Benz trucks, all in excellent condition, with current service histories and some only 12 months old.
Speedie’s owner, Simon Knowles, said “I’ve been selling my assets through Grays for more than 10 years and have always had a great experience. It was an easy decision to sell through them again since they always provide good service and results.”
The Speedie’s fleet consists of 9 prime movers, 7 tippers and 3 trailers. Assets on offer include:
- 2018 DAF FADCF75 Tipper Truck
- 2007 Sterling LT 7500 HX Tipper Truck
- 2017 Kenworth T409 Prime Mover
- 2016 Kenworth T409 Prime Mover
- 2016 Mercedes Benz FK2651 Prime Mover
- 2016 Trout River Live Bottom Trailer
- 2010 Kenworth T408 SAR Prime Mover
Terry Rowland, Head of Corporate at Grays, said “We are very excited to be able to showcase and sell Speedie’s fleet on our online marketplace. We have had a long working relationship with the Knowles brothers and we wish them the very best in their retirement.”
Proud to offer the outstanding assets of Speedie Contractors, Grays is providing an extensive catalogue of photos and videos, along with detailed descriptions of all assets. Each asset has an exceptional maintenance schedule and service history which will be provided. Speedie’s took great pride and care with their fleet, demonstrated by the attention to detail on each truck and trailer, quality hydraulics and regular NHVAS maintenance.
Inspections are welcome and currently available Monday to Friday from 8am to 4pm at 240 Macarthur Avenue, Hamilton QLD. Please be advised that Grays has implemented strict COVID- 19 protocols to ensure the safety of our team members and valued customers.
