Our Story


Betta Car & Ute Hire was founded by Gordon Somes in 1999. The company operated out of a local service station in Cleveland with only a few cars and utes. Before long Betta Car & Ute Hire became a trusted family owned and operated local business then in 2004 the company moved into 215-217 Bloomfield Street Cleveland this was a great opportunity allowing the business to expand the fleet from cars and utes to incorporate vans, minibuses, trailers and trucks.

Today Gordon has retired and pleased to have his son, Cameron, take over the family business as managing director together with his grandson Ryan as his assistant. Due to the company’s fleet expanding from cars and utes.
