Victor Brown Maxwell - Boss dog
People often ask us, “who is Victor Brown?” Now we can point to our 2 year old Border Terrier and it lets people put a face to the name. Victor can often be found at the workshop on Hillside Road or riding shotgun in Paul’s ute.
Victor Brown did a great job installing the heat pump. Very friendly and professional service.
