Tony Carsburg Holden Dealership

Tony-Carsburg_imageFor 38 years Tony Carsburg Holden has been providing old-fashioned country service to the good people of this Shire. In addition to selling new Holden and used vehicles they are the local NRMA country service centre for the Mullumbimby district and are an authorised RTA vehicle inspection station for vehicle safety checks.

Yes, they are pretty much a one-stop shop where all your motoring needs can be met. They sell fuel (with full driveway service), supply all NRMA needs and of course they sell and service motor vehicles. At Tony Carsburg they are proud to offer country style, no-pressure service while remaining very competitive on pricing.

When asked about what they like about being part of the Mullum community Tony replied, ‘The Mullum community is unique in that it provides a diversified range of clientele who are as passionate about dealing locally as we are about providing quality service to the local community.’  He went on to say, ‘In a community like Mullum it is not uncommon for four generations of a family to be dealing with us. Local business is a two-way street. It works for our customers as all their needs are met without leaving town and they know the people they are doing business with.  It works for us because we rely on local business to ensure our viability in a very competitive market.’

Over the 38 years Tony has owned the business, Tony Carsburg Holden has supported and sponsored numerous local sporting groups, schools and service clubs and is regarded as one of the shire's most generous businesses when it comes to sponsoring community events.
