TESTIMONIALS/ PAST PERFORMANCE
BROOKS QUARRIES has been a large part of the development of the Lockyer region in recent years, supplying quarry materials & earthmoving machinery to the Lockyer Valley Regional Council on a regular basis.
We also have ongoing relations with Rugby Farm, Polman’s Nursary & Nolan’s Interstate Transport where we have developed large areas of their property.
BROOKS QUARRIES also work for & supplies the smaller farming community & local residences with such services as dam construction, road construction, civil works, house and shed pads, trenching & labour hire.
Our strongest point of difference to our competitors is that we have been in the local area since 1955 and have a strong relationship with the local council & surrounding businesses.
We also have all aspects of the earth moving industry covered with experienced operators offering knowledge & machines to meet all of our customers/clients and contractors requirements and a large number have worked for the company for many years. We have our own quarries making & supplying a large range of products. With our fleet of trucks we are able to transport our products, and the equipment to locations around the Lockyer Valley region of up to 100km approx.
WE OFFER PROMPT SERVICE WITH RELIABLE ADVICE AT REASONABLE RATES TO YOU.
