About Us

Get to know us

At Daimler Trucks Toowoomba we supply and support trucks, tractors and agricultural equipment for customers throughout southern Queensland.

We are proud to call our dealership Queensland’s largest Daimler dealer, with a service area covering over 100,000 square kilometres of Australia’s regional hubs.

Our History – Westco Truck Sales

Formerly known as Westco Trucks Sales, we’ve been part of the Toowoomba community for over 80 years.

Upon entering the road transport industry in 1934, our founder Mr J.C. “Cyril” Anderson, C.B.E. established his first business – the company that would soon operate Australia wide and become known as Western Transport. Comprising of 100 prime movers and 100 other trucks, 340 semi-trailers, 14 refrigerated trailers, bulk fuel tankers and many other pieces of specialised equipment, the trucking business was a huge success.

This success led to the development of the Great Western Group of Companies, from which Westco Motors was born in 1953. The family-owned business has provided quality products and friendly country service to Queenslanders ever since.

A New Season – Daimler Trucks Toowoomba

In mid 2018, Westco Truck Sales was sold and under its new ownership and management Daimler Trucks Toowoomba was established. Although trading under a new name with a new direction, the legacy of how it all began will continue for generations to come.

Our focus now is looking after our customers for the long haul. We’re stepping up our after sales support through our workshop, panel shop and parts shop, plus we’re excited to get more involved with our community and partner with other local businesses.

Our joint Dealer Principals, Cameron O’Hara and David Lowe, are exciting to get to know our customers and take an already successful business to the next level.
