The Big Garage

The Big Garage

“The Big Garage” Bairnsdale is one of Australia’s oldest dealerships and one of the first to sell GM products in Australia.

Starting in 1926 in a purpose-built garage at 628 Main Street Bairnsdale by Mr John Capuano Senior, the business was the largest service or breakdown garage between Melbourne and Sydney, with its own Motor Vehicle Ambulance (Tow Truck).

From selling Buick, Vauxhall and Pontiac products in the early years to now providing full Sales Service and Parts facilities for Holden, Nissan, Suzuki and Subaru Franchises.

In the past two years the Dealership has had a change in senior management and all dealership staff are now very customer and community focused resulting in increased sales and staffing levels.

Employing 34 full time staff we are always looking at how we can further contribute to the community. Local memberships include Rotary, CFA, Football and Netball to name a few.

We also sponsor local events like the East Gippsland Power Boat Club’s Paynesville Gold Cup, the recently announced Cycling Victoria’s, East Gippsland Masters Road National’s, Mission Australia’s  L2P Learner Driver program and we are proud to be a sponsor of the East Gippsland Business Awards.

Please take time to call in and experience the Evolution at The Big Garage.
