Tim Mulligan

TIM Mulligan works for Brisbane company 1800 Backloads and delivers furniture.

The 38-year-old Tim (pictured left) carts furniture between the state capital and Cairns and was with his assistant Andrew Greenwood when we saw them on March 14.

He was driving a Hino 700SS powered by a 480hp motor.

Tim enjoys listening to music and also a spot of fishing.

Although Tim and Andrew certainly couldn't lay claim to be Vic Hislop type shark catchers, they did manage to catch one recently.

"We landed a bull shark from the Cardwell jetty and we heard there are crocodiles around there as well. We have seen the warning signs but never any crocs," Tim said.

A truckie for 10 years, Tim rates the Bruce Hwy around Gladstone as one he dislikes travelling along.
