At the age of
14, Garry would head home from school to pull covers off FB Holdens for
two shillings a seat in the then-backyard car trimming business, that
his father had started in the early 1950s.
A few years later, Garry and his 4 brothers were working full time in
the family business, by then relocated to Bentleigh.
Being an individual in a family business with four brothers was never
going to be easy and in 1988, Garry left to start his own trimming shop
and GARRY BLACKMAN Trimming was born.
Garry now has over 35 years experience and has been in own business for
over 17 years .
