In 1988, Michael "John" Scobie recognized the need for Ballarat car yards to receive timely transportation of cars on an ongoing and regular basis. Not only should cars be delivered daily from and to Ballarat, but should arrive safely at the destination, on time - every time.
So, as a one man band, he purchased his first truck and began his daily trek to and from Ballarat. From Monday to Saturday, John would take cars to and from Melbourne, Geelong, Maryborough, Ararat, Horsham and Stawell. Well, that was about 30 years ago.
Today, John Scobie Car Carrying boasts a fleet of three car, six car and seven car carriers and the Company still delivers to the same Melbourne and Rural areas it did 30 years ago.
The "Scobie" drivers are a fully experienced, friendly and devoted team who go that extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction.Truck Driving is clearly in the blood of the Scobie clan, because today, his son Matt has stepped into John's shoes and operates this highly reputable and admired transport company with the same pride, enthusiasm and devotion as his father had for years before.
If you ask both John and Matt, what is the one reason anyone should phone John Scobie Car Carrying to freight their vehicles- their answer is without hesitation. " We are a local company, well established and have a terrific reputation with our clients. We strive to deliver the cars on time, every time and at the most competitive price." (Matt Scobie)
John quietly adds, "I've seen a lot of cowboys come and go, undercutting the price in the industry, delivering cars for peanuts. And I cant remember not one of them who lasted longer than 12 months. We know our industry, we know what level of service clients expect and we deliver"
Michael "John" Scobie passed away in 2019 as one of Ballarat's Most Loved and Respected Icons
