Cricks was founded in 1995 when Garry Crick bought the Nissan and Mitsubishi franchises in Nambour on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, before partnering with John Eastham in 2005. Garry and John are principal shareholders of the Autopact Group, which includes Cricks and other dealerships in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
Cricks Sunshine Coast is now made up of five locations: three in Maroochydore, one in Nambour and one in Noosa. At each of our dealerships, there is a Dealer Principal who is an owner in that dealership and a local in that area, so we really are invested in our local communities. We’ve got a diverse mix of teams across the Sunshine Coast, but one thing we all have in common is that we live and breathe our ‘Drive Away Happy’ mission, which is that every one of our customers drives away happy, every time.
Whether it’s your first or fifth car, you’re a team of two or a family of eight, you’re in the market for a new car or just need a great local mechanic, the Cricks team is here to help you.
We’re proud to be a major sponsor of The Compass Institute. As well as cash support, every car purchased receives a box of jams & chutneys made on Compass Farm. We also collaborated to bring the Compass Connections Café to life in Nambour, and sponsor Happy and Cherokee, two beautiful assistance dogs.
Cricks Sunshine Coast has a proud history of supporting many community groups and not-for-profits doing important work in our local community; from surf clubs and Christmas parades to cycling teams and cancer patient support organisations.
