FROM being a regular at the Victoria Point Sharks Club, Dave O’Donoghue has now got his name up in lights as one of Redland Bombers’ key sponsors.
Dave decided to support the club after he went into business on his own and to his undeniable surprise now gets to see his venture – Bayside Mobile Mechanic – boldly on display on the electronic scoreboard each time he ventures to Scottsdale Park.
The location of his signage was the major prize in the club’s “100 Business Club” where sponsors go into a draw with the signage the key prize.
“I was at the draw and to have the name drawn out was fantastic,” Dave said.
Dave has operated Bayside Mobile Mechanic – a silver sponsor with the Bombers – for four years now and the business is going from strength to strength.
His general operational radius spans Wynnum to Redland Bay and is always quick to get to anyone who has mechanical problems.
Dave has a very experienced background having worked in dealerships as well as with heavy vehicles.
After several years working for others he took the plunge and decided to “work for myself, by myself.”
“It’s been fantastic. I couldn’t go back to my previous life.
“You might have some slow weeks, but generally it’s pretty busy.”
It was his time as a member of the Sharks Club that forged his decision to hop on board the Bombers’ sponsorship train.
“I’d always like the staff and I thought why not sponsor a club that I enjoy going to.”
Dave is not overly immersed in AFL and is a long-time supporter of the Brisbane Broncos.
But with a neighbour’s son playing in the under 13s and with then name of his business on display on the Scottsdale Park scoreboard he gets to watch a game more often now than he would previously have done.
So, there you go, if you require someone with the expertise and experience to solve any mechanical problem you might encounter then give Dave a call on 0432207863.
Don’t forget the name – it’s BAYSIDE MOBILE MECHANIC.
