    I'm calling stumps.

    Just advising that with a heavy heart that I'm pulling the pin on selling parts. My illness has progressed where I am quite a bit of pain daily and my inability to communicate with speech is becoming more prevelant..
    I now need nurses to attend to assist with daily activities at home.
    I have been approach by a couple of people asking if I would sell the business.
    I declined the offer.
    Heather and I have spent tireless hours on the business and have a good rapport with our customers and had customer loyalty and many have become friends over the years and as we respect their privacy by not giving out their private details.
    We have been clearing stock over the past year and still have a little remaining on ebay.
    Wish to thank those here on Aulro who have been supportive over the years and those that have been a shoulder to cry on during the difficult times.
    thank you Mario.
    Ps ditto from Heather, Thank you guys for listening to my rants as well. You guys mean so much to us

    A sad loss to all your customers, it will create a void that will be hard to fill. Almost anyone can sell parts, but very few can do it with the speed, accuracy and brilliant service you and Heather have shown is possible.
    All the best to you both.
    If you don't like trucks, stop buying stuff.

    Hi Mario & Heather,
    The only surprise is how you both managed to keep going this long despite the obvious hurdles.

    Hopefully life will be a bit easier without the business to worry about.

    Thanks, Peter
