Proudly serving the Mallee and Riverland for over 30 years
Max and Lynn Wishart are the owners of M & LJ Wishart Contractors Pty Ltd.
The business evolved after Max started driving interstate for his father Doug, with general freight and subcontracting for other large freight companies. After the sale of Doug's truck Max then drove for Moore Bros, a local freight company.
Max's passion for the Transport Industry saw him purchase his first truck, an Acco 30/70, tipper, truck/railer. Max seeing a real need for a bulk freight carrier in the region, slowly built on his fleet as the demand from both dry land farming and Viticulture became inevitable. From small beginnings as an owner operator, this was the commencement of M & LJ Wishart Contractors Pty Ltd.
Today the fleet comprises 12 truck/trailer combinations, , one 19 metre B double, a 25m B Double and a road train specialising in bulk cartage of grain, grapes, fertiliser, gypsum and manures throughout the state of South Australia and Interstate. The business is large enough to handle customer's requirements yet small enough to understand and know their customer's needs.
The business partners with an adjoining fully equipped, modern, workshop (Max's Mechanical Workshop & Repairs) that employs a full team of qualified mechanics, tasked with maintaining the fleet in top condition and ensuring downtime for repairs is kept to a minimum. The 8 bay maintenance workshop includes a B-Double sized pit.
