Local Builder Wins the Ultimate Tradies Tool
24 June 2013
A Lennox Head builder has won the ultimate tradies tool thanks to Coates Hire Ballina.
Over the past few months Pim Kay, builder of Kayon Homes, visited his local Coates Hire branch on several occasions to hire equipment for his construction company. On each visit Pim entered the Chariots of Hire promotion, hoping to win the major prize of a Toyota HiLux SR5.
On one visit in mid-March, Pim hired a Plate Compactor and entered the promotion as usual. It was this visit that resulted in his name being drawn from over 18,000 entries.
While he dreamt of sitting behind the wheel of the HiLux, he never thought his name would be drawn out.
On receiving the keys to the white Dual cab Toyota HiLux SR5 worth over $48,000 Pim said, “This is amazing. It’s a wonderful feeling and winning the HiLux still feels totally out of the blue. I don’t win many prizes, so this is fantastic and very much unexpected.
“I think there might be a few discussions between my wife and I as to who will drive it. I reckon the HiLux might be sharing its time between being the workhorse and the family car.”
Presenting Pim with the HiLux, Coates Hire Chief Executive Officer Mr Leigh Ainsworth said, “We are delighted to present Pim with this fantastic prize and trust he enjoys every moment behind the wheel.
“We hope the HiLux will be as valuable a business partner to him as Coates Hire has always been.”
Coates Hire Ballina branch Manager Tony Walker added: “Pim has been a customer of ours for a few years now and it’s great to see him win this prize. He’s a terrific bloke and the staff here at the Ballina branch are stoked about his success.
"We look forward to seeing the Toyota back here on a regular basis when Pim comes in to hire more of our equipment in the future.”
Listen to the call Pim received when he was told he was the lucky winner!
