MTA Queensland – Don’t Get Taken for a Ride

Trust – in an overly commercialised world where we are continually exposed to marketing tactics, and people often struggle to make purchasing decisions, trust can be the deciding factor.

In particular, when you are making large purchases such as your home, family holidays, car, or vehicle servicing equipment, finding a credible vendor that you can trust will give you faith and assurance in your investment choice.

These days though, with the market saturated by scammers, the old “handshake” deal and approach of “going with your gut” are simply not wise.

So how can you make sure that your purchases will provide you with maximum benefits?

Every industry has its own ways of regulating suppliers to be accountable for upholding safety and quality standards in their products.  Several organisations do this nationally and statewide when it comes to the automotive industry. We have the Motor Trades Association of Queensland (MTAQ) here in Queensland.  As a consumer, here is what you need to know…

What is the Motor Trades Association of Queensland?

The Motor Trades Association of Queensland (MTA Queensland) is an organisation that represents the interests of employers in the retail, service and repair sectors of Queensland’s automotive industry.

MTA Queensland member businesses operate in many different automotive industry sectors, including:

In addition, the MTA Institute is the largest private provider of automotive apprenticeships and training in Queensland.


To be accepted as an MTAQ member, businesses must satisfy several criteria designed to uphold industry benchmarks in safety, quality, service, integrity and accountability.

The organisation works to support automotive businesses and their customers through training, information and advice.  Members and clients also have access to free education on new and emerging technologies and products.

Although MTAQ is not a regulatory authority, they represent its member businesses handling complaints.

In short, you can trust a business that displays the MTA Queensland logo.

As a supplier to the automotive industry, Genesis Equipment is a long-standing MTA Queensland Member.  We work hard to instil a sense of assurance and trust at every touchpoint in our customer journeys.
