Paul has been operating Jenkins Transport (Vic) Pty Ltd for 21 years, delivering timber for a Victorian based wholesale timber company over metro & regional VIC.
After owning a couple of second hand trucks, Paul decided to upgrade to a new vehicle. Paul looked at a number of makes of trucks, “I was most impressed with the Hino, which in hindsight was a very good business decision."
“I work long hours and travel long distances and the main reason for the upgrades was to have no downtime with breakdowns or repairs. The decision to stay with the Hino brand has greatly benefited my business. I have found Hino very reliable, and I can categorically say that I will be owning and driving Hino’s well into the future.” Paul says.
The list of Hino trucks Paul owns are a range of our 500 Series Wide Cab trucks with upgrades every 5 or so years. The first new Hino he bought was a GH with a tray. He then went on with a Hino 500 Series GH Ranger (Wide Cab) in 1999, 500 Series GH Ranger Pro (Wide Cab) in 2007, 500 Series FL Wide Cab in 2015 and a recent purchase of our 500 Series FM Wide Cab in 2020. “I have found the combination of 350hp and the nine-speed gearbox very suited to both metro and regional work.” The last 3 trucks have been fitted with a tray from Complete Truck Bodies in the south eastern suburbs of Melbourne.
Paul purchased his first Hino from Whitehorse Truck Centre when they were a dealer, and last 3 new Hino trucks were purchased at Prestige Hino at Dandenong where he gets them serviced too. Paul also based his purchase decisions on his good working relationship with the dealership. “I have found the team at Prestige Hino to be very experienced, knowledgeable and always a pleasure to deal with.” Paul says.
