Before a contractor can even think about expanding his business, he needs to get established first. David Stewart, a cop, who lives in Kirwan, near Townsville took six months long service leave and spent three months deciding on what equipment to buy before taking out the finance to buy a Case Construction Equipment Case 420 skid steer loader and a 6 tonne Hino tip truck to set up his business, N.Q.2.U Bobcat and Tipper Hire.

In two weeks, David Stewart got enough work and earned enough money to cover the equipment repayments for the first full month. Before making the decision to start up his own business, David was a motorcycle cop. David established his own business.

After a long search for quality gear, he found that Case Construction Equipment offered reliable gear. He also test drove all the different makes on the market before going with Case. The next step was getting an industry card and a licence to drive the machines and he was ready to put his equipment on site.
