The original store was in Bon Mace Close, Tumbi Umbi, and after only a year of trading the success of the business saw the need to move to bigger premises in another building on the same street. Steve grew the business and continually diversified the range of products and services.
In 2000, the opportunity arose to purchase land near Mingara and the time was right to build a bigger and better purpose built workshop. The new building was designed specifically to the needs of a tyre & mechanical workshop with four tyre service bays, three mechanical service bays, a truck fitting bay, showroom and air-conditioned customer lounge as well as ample storage on a mezzanine level. This location on Mingara Drive is where the business still trades today.
Steve has a great level of knowledge and experience in the automotive industry having now owned and operated Tumbi Tyres almost four decades. With experience in all aspects of mechanical work, wheel alignments, tyre fitting and sales, he still oversees the day to day running of the workshop. More recently, he has also incorporated Trek & Bash car preparation into his busy schedule.
After experimenting with expanding and opening other stores in Long Jetty and Sydney, Steve realised the importance of the one shop, one owner theory. All resources and efforts are now focused on the one store in Tumbi Umbi. Having all energy focussed on the one shop, ensures that our staff can give our customers the fastest and best service possible.
Tumbi Tyres has built a great team of mechanics and tyre technicians who are experienced in a broad range of areas including: truck tyre fitting, 4WD specialist & trip preparation, mechanical repairs and wheel alignments.
