“They can safely store all their gear. A lot of people buy Hiaces and fit them out to suit their needs with components and compartments.”

Buying the vehicle from Mackay Toyota, Budget Guys joined the numerous other Mackay businesses that turn to the dealership for their work vehicle needs.

“A lot of other businesses in Mackay purchase their vehicles from us and many of those have long time relationships with our business,” Jason said.

Jason said they are in a “lucky situation” at Mackay Toyota, in that they have many long-term, knowledgeable employees.

“We employ 260 locals and they have good product knowledge and know vehicle capabilities.

“People will come in knowing they need a vehicle but not what type of vehicle and our staff can help them identify what type of vehicle they need.”

On top of the knowledgeable staff and being a long-established family-owned and operated business in Mackay, Jason said Mackay Toyota tips money into local charities on the back of locals purchasing from them.

“We’re associated with various charities. Recently, we passed on a donation to the Mackay Hospital Foundation after some numerous charitable events we ran throughout the years.
