Just Truckin’ Around – Regan Sanford

Thursday, February 4, 2021



Trucking is in the blood for Regan Sanford. He’s followed in the footsteps of his father, who drove for local Southland stalwart, DT King and Co. Regan spent a lot of time in the passenger seat alongside his father during the school holidays. DT King was also where Regan got his start, on a 400hp Nissan. Roll on 12 years having completed stints at Switzers Valley Transport driving field tractors, and Te Anau Transport, Regan is now at Sinclair Transport in Winton and still enjoying the industry.

“No one day is the same for me and I get to see the countryside and get paid to do it,” he tells Craig Andrews. Regan drives a 2019 FH16 Volvo for Sinclair’s, solely on livestock cartage around New Zealand. The Volvo is a relative newbie with only 105,000km on the dial. He enjoys the close-knit family operation at Sinclairs and the great bunch of guys that he works alongside. There was nothing in the industry that Regan dislikes. He is proudly pictured with his daughter, Kynleigh.
