Advice on product and product purchase.

"Very competent and knowledgeable staff who clearly had practical experience of their products. No pressure to buy and offering and demonstrating a range of products.
Good comparative pricing when compared with on-line purchasing with the added value of local back up and service. Well stocked store with an excellent range of products.

Will certainly return and will recommend to others."

Purchase of new chainsaw
 
Cost: £1299
 

"I dealt with Gail from start to finish, this girl is very good and really knows her products.
She gave a great description of the Stihl chainsaw range which helped me decide the
best model to suit my requirements.
The product I purchased is a Stihl MS 500 I with a 20” and a 30” light bar.
I have since been using both cutting up a mature beech tree butt and am extremely
with the performance and would highly recommend this product to others.
Thanks for your help and knowledge Gail I think you are fantastic asset to your company
and Stihl products.
Please feel free to pass on my details fo recommendations of you Company and Stihl products"

Purchase of new hedge trimmer.

"I contacted them via Facebook messenger to see if the item was in stock and got a prompt reply it was.

Went in store a couple of days later and the gentleman asked me questions about what I was going to use it for to check it would meet my needs. Explained the features and operation of the hedge trimmer and recommended accessories. A great experience showing why it pays to shop locally!

Have purchased from this company over the last 10+ years and not been disappointed."

buy hsa 86 battery hedge trimmer plus battery plus charger
 
Cost: £580
 

"i am a local gardening business(GGG Gardening Services)heavily involved in multiple hedge trimming and looking for a new top end battery hedge trimmer.I bought HSA 86 long blade trimmer plus biggest battery and largest charger.I was worried about power from any battery hedge trimmer.I would rate this trimmer 8/10 for power,it will cut comfortably to 13-16mm diameter.Amazingly the battery is recharged in 45 mins giving around 3 hours cutting time at constant power as battery weakens.This allows a cutter about 4-5 hours work session with tidying up green waste.The machine plus battery is still light enough to use for this 4-5 hour period.All in £580 that is including vat.For most domestic hedges of all sizes a decent machine.Always a pleasant experience to deal with the staff and hope they are back to full power soon after the fire."

Checking over my old lawnmower and advising me (after checking) that it was beyond repair.Recommendation of a replacement with full explanation.No charge made for the time spent checking over my old machine.I bought their recommended lawnmower.this cost £149.00

"As above. I took my old machine to them to see if it could be fixed.They said they would check it over and let me know how much it would cost to repair, before any further work was carried out.They phoned within a couple of days to advise that it would not be economical to repair my old lawnmower (in the region of £100 plus)which would be worth less than £20.
I asked about replacements and they recommended a suitable model which for only a further £30-40 over the cost of repairing my old one, came with a full 2 year guarantee.I was happy to take their advice as they have always kept me right in the past.They made no charge for checking my old machine and also disposed of it for me. I would and have recommended them to anyone."

Sold me an electric cordless lawnmower.
 
Cost: £350
 

"I went to the shop with only basic knowledge of the product and I was treated extremely well by a very courteous member of staff.
She explained the various sizes and typed of machine and helped me to make the decision.

The mechanism was explained and she answered my questions very clearly.

She then did the paperwork and put the lawn mower in the car for me.

I was extremely pleaded with the process and am very pleased with the lawnmower!"
