MEET THE TEAMSteve Evans
Mobile No.: 0418 816 554Growing up in a trucking family I naturally progressed to owning my own trucks starting with taxi truck work, local TNT Express deliveries and intrastate car carrying. I bought 4 trucks from our then Stillwell Trucks Adelaide Dealership, including a new D Series Ford in 1978 and a new Ford Louisville LNT9000 in 1979. The Louisville was set up as a 7 car carrier and I carted new Ford Falcons, Cortinas, Escorts, Fairlanes and LTD’s around Australia until 1980 when at the age of 21 I won a contract with Pearce Transport. Off to the South Australian outback I dragged my young family with the Louisville set for Road Train work towing 2 overloaded semi trailer tankers of water from Woomera to the fledgling Roxby Downs mining camp and the Andamooka opal mining township. After 3 years hard slog on the outback dirt roads I went down the hole as an underground miner for a couple of years until we left Roxby and the outback to own a pub in the Flinders Ranges. I went back to driving interstate on the Sydney to Perth Express run until 1987 when I joined my father selling trucks at Stillwell Trucks Adelaide. In 1990 the Chairman asked if I would move to Melbourne to help set up the groups newly acquired Dealership, Austrans Ford Truck Centre in Footscray as Used Truck Manager. I progressed through various management roles with various brands through to General Manager in 2003. We stayed at the old Footscray Dealership through its many iterations and changes until the big shift to our new site, Fuso Port Melbourne in December 2018. While truck and truck industry knowledge got me the job and helped with life as a truck salesman it is the great management and staff of our dealership and group that has kept me here for nearly 32 years!
