Servicing the Sunshine Coast since 1975 with efficiency and integrity.
Sunland TV Service is still the largest home electronics repair company on the Sunshine Coast with its workshop in the heart of Maroochydore. We have been trading since 1975 when Mr George Dokic started an antenna and TV repair service in Bli Bli. It rapidly grew to a well respected business and it was relocated to Maroochydore on Horton Parade shortly thereafter.
In 2000 Sunland TV Service won the Australian Institute of Management Award, and during that period we had a staff count of 25 people, composed of nine administrative staff and sixteen technicians ranging from specialised television technicians, audio and video technicians, antenna repairs/installer technicians and field service technicians.
Sunland TV Service changed to the current owner Nando Strano in 2002, and after a reconstruction of the company it was relocated to the current address of Norval Court Maroochydore. Nando commenced his Electronics course in Italy in 1978 and completed his apprenticeship with Hills Industries (Hills Telefix) in Melbourne by the age of 21. After transferring to Brisbane he managed Hills Telefix, Kedron branch for five years and in 1993 he commenced working for Tomas Electronics in New Farm and subsequently bought the business in 1995.
Nando’s electronics and business skills, together with his wife Maria, have allowed him to run successful businesses.
Our long lasting apprentice, Doug Tilley commenced his apprenticeship with Sunland TV Service and offered his service some fifteen years ,before branching out on his own.
In mid 2009 our technical team was joined by Mr Don Garrow formerly of Garrows TV & Video of Caloundra. Don operated his own business for many years and his priceless experience has benefited our organisation. The strength of all our technicians combined assures professional repairs to all our customers.
Our service manager, Gary Tulk trained with OTC in Sydney and has been offering technical and managerial skills to Sunland TV Service for eighteen years as the front person at our office. Gary retired in 2017.
Currently our front office is attended by Bianca Swanton who cares for customer enquiries and job bookings. Bianca joined us after Gary retirement at the end of 2017.
Shortly after, our team was joined by Brett Collins, formally from Comscan Electronics. Brett has brought us an immense amount of IT skills assisting our daily performance and running of our business.
With the assistance of the Manufactures we train all our technicians to ensure the highest possible performance. Since 2002 we have had 4 apprentices qualifying successfully, currently our third year apprentice is Adam Donaldson.
Our technicians attend regular training and are kept up to date with the latest technology by the leading manufacturers for which we are authorised service agents. These companies include Panasonic, Samsung, LG Electronics, Sharp and many more. We are the preferred repairer for the leading extended warranty organisations such as Domestic & General and Harvey Norman Extended Warranties (Product Care), so whenever you buy a product from any of the retailers on the Sunshine Coast and you have purchased an extended warranty, you will more than likely be guaranteed the professional service of our organisation. Our service area covers from Tewantin to Glass House Mountains and west to Nambour.
Our field installer/driver is Lane Steele who came to us from Harvey Norman. Lane has been with us since 2017 and a huge asset to our company.
In December 2018, our store was engulfed by fire, destroying absolutely everything. We returned to trading within 36 hours, relocating to our current temporary location on Aerodrome Rd.
All going well we will be back at Norval Court by the end of November. Bigger, Better and Stronger!!
