Working at the Gorge for 9 years, combined with my love of small hatchbacks finally came to an end when I realised that my current role at the gorge as volunteer coordinator required a vehicle with a wee bit more space!!
Hmmm!!! what to buy. Something tough that can go anywhere, and carry anything. It’s a no brainer- a V8 landcruiser. Perfect for shuttles too!!
Well the original idea was not to start out as a transport business. The Gorge was struggling with transport logistics. We had a new firetruck in the wings but it wasn’t quite there yet.
Finally the firetruck arrived. Woo hoo!
So what to do with the Landcruiser now, its all certed up and ready to go. The light bulb flicked on.
Always a lefty by nature, It was really important for me to be able to be able to give back to the community that has supported me, but also not go for broke in the process.
So I needed some business aims that fitted my ethos
1.) Enable well piced packages that are affordable for a wide spectrum of people to get into the outdoors- this was really important
2) Kick back 5% of my profits to provide free tranport to the community to enable great thing to happen for not for profits.
And hence the 5% strategy was born
