Caloundra Motors Service Centre
Caloundra Motors has had a long and solid history in the local area. It first began in the early 1930s as a mechanical business in the main street of Caloundra.In 1980,the business was moved to Kings Beach by the owners Grandson, Robert Smith, and his wife Glenda, and began operating as Kings Beach Service Centre. The business had a strong local reputation providing old fashioned driveway service, fuel, mechanical services & repairs. They have been affiliated with RACQ for just as long.
At the end of 2016 the business was moved to 3 Sydal Street in Caloundra to provide better geographical coverage for the breakdown service & to allow for growth. The business also re-branded to the historical Caloundra Motors to better suit the new location and a way to acknowledge the strong ties to Caloundra, and the contributions made by generations past that assisted in the success of the business today.In April 2018 the business was sold to long time employee,Glen Morris,who completed his apprenticeship at Kings Beach Service Centre. Together with his wife Leisha, Glen has taken care of the day-to-day management of the business for many years,which includes the provision of the RACQ roadside assistance service for the Caloundra area and the management of the automotive repair workshop. Leisha also has historical ties with Caloundra Motors as her Father completed his apprenticeship at the original Caloundra Motors with Robert’s Grandfather. It is an exciting chapter for the family business. Caloundra Motors aims to continue providing the good old fashioned service of days gone by.
