Hendra’s Newest Tyre & Mechanical Hub Goes Platinum

Hendra’s Newest Tyre & Mechanical Hub Goes Platinum

Being passionate from an early age about everything cars, Steele Childs and best mate Brett Vandersee, naturally took to a career in motoring, doing their mechanic apprenticeships shoulder by shoulder in Emerald, Central Queensland. While Brett mainly stuck to mechanical servicing of cars and trucks for the past 25 years, Steele took over the running of the family tyre business for the past two decades.

Passionate about top service and quality workmanship, as that is how things are done in country areas, they have looked after local motorists in the Emerald area for many years as well as earned contracts with earthmoving contractors and mining companies to undertake their tyre changes.

Fast-forward to October 2016, we saw Brett and Steele opened the doors to their brand new Hendra Tyre and Mechanical workshop in Nudgee Rd, bringing their quality mechanical services and full scope of tyre service to the local area. In seeing that in the city service usually takes the back-seat after price, Brett and Steele have decided to take the country-style customer service and quality workmanship they have provided for two decades and bring it to Brisbane, together with top-quality tyres at affordable prices by opening the Kumho Tyre Platinum Dealership in Hendra.

Joining the exclusive full-service network of around  qualifying Kumho Platinum dealerships nationally, the two country boys are offering full mechanical services for cars, 4WD’s, light commercials and right through to trucks of all sizes, as well as tyres from wheelbarrows, to cars, 4WD’s, commercial vehicles and all the way to earthmoving equipment and any size truck tyres.


In bringing the same quality tyre service and unsurpassed customer service from Emerald to this community, they are set to look after local motorists as well as offering an off-site tyre service for trucks. With a massive 1100sqm of workshops, showroom, customer lounge and ample parking Brett and Steele welcome locals to check them out for their next service, mechanical repair or tyre change. Offering the full Kumho tyre range, approved customer service and free tyre health checks, local motorist and their rides will be in good hands.

David HooperNational Trade Marketing Manager said, “We are pleased to welcome Brett and Steele and their team at Hend ra to our Platinum Dealer network, and look forward to extending our top level service to the local community.”

“Choosing Kumho Tyre really was a no-brainer,” says Steele, “Bringing our time-tested country-style service and the quality and competitive prices of Kumho tyres together and to the local area made good sense and we look forward to letting locals decide for themselves if they like to get both, city prices and quality country service for their vehicles.”

The exclusive Platinum Dealership network spans nationally and sets high standards in terms of service and customer offering, making it a recognition in itself for Hendra Tyre and Mechanical to join the ranks. As a platinum dealer they also provide a customer lounge with TV and complimentary tea and coffee, however talking true country-style service, they even offer a free barista coffee at a choice of four cafes within a 200 meter walk of the workshop and also offer a pick-up/drop-off service for those that are too busy to wait.
