Owner-operator keeps business flowing

Owner-operator Chad Booker, 40, who runs More Water, was pumping water into a tank on the back of his Mack Fleetliner Elite when Big Rigs saw him near Cessnock in NSW.

“I am taking on water for delivery to rain water tanks in the region. I go around the Lower Hunter region including to Singleton and Maitland,” he said.

Born and bred in Sydney, Booker moved to Cessnock in 2009 and loves the 2001 Mack.

“I bought it three years ago and had the tank built by Allquip at nearby Rutherford. I support local businesses,” he said.

His wife Lauryn helps with the administration side of the business. “She does all the behind-the-scenes work,” he said.

Booker barracks for the Newcastle Knights in the NRL. I asked him the worst road he gets along.

“It would have to be the Wollonbi Road near Cessnock. It is rough as hell,” he said.

His favourite stop off is the Kearsley Servo in the region.

Booker says he loves the paper. “I am a big fan of Big Rigs,” he said.

Outside work Booker likes camping at Lightning Ridge.
