We bought , stihl hedge cutter, strummer and kids strimmer and fuel that gave me an extra years warranty. Went back and bought kids work gloves and toy chain saw.

"Great service, great comunication very knowlageable about products and services.
We've bought cheaper garden equipment in the past and they have not lasted long and we have realised if we bought these products in the past we would have saved a small fortune.
Great discounts given from advertised price and even better we are shopping local, it's a win win.
We will definitely go back over and over again.

Customer Review
 
Purchased a Stihl HSA56 hedge-cutter with a spare battery , lubricant and visor/hat.
 
Cost: £277
 

"I received helpful and competant service in a friendly manner and would not hesitate in using Galloway Hire Tool again. The hedge-cutter was listed as a Which? consumer magazine best-buy and I was grateful to be able to source one so rapidly.

I enquired from Galloway Hire Tools on one day to be informed that they were awaiting stock and was informed the following day that they had received it. The staff kindly set-aside the tool whilst I travelled the 40 miles to collect it. I was also informed of an offer of a half-price battery deal and took advantage of this.

The staff were helpful and friendly and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again."

Purchase of garden machinery

"First class service, staff have an excellent working knowledge of their products. The store is very well stocked with a great range of products. Prices are comparable with others available on-line. When taking account of the ability to try before buy and the knowledge of staff then this is the better option.

All staff are courteous and friendly, there is no pressure to buy."

Purchased a new Stihl Petrol Strimmer / Brushcutter
 
Cost: £360
 

"The lady who attended us was very knowledgeable about the products and explained all the differences in the various models enabling us to make an informed choice. She was very polite and extremely helpful. She took care of registering the warranty and extended warranty that we took out and really couldn't have been more helpful. Galloway Hire Tools will be my first stop for my next purchase of this kind or for service /maintenance."

New Stihl Lawn mower
 
Cost: £678
 

"I went to them as I had bought a Stihl chain saw last year . Quality of product was excellent as was level of advice previously received .

I was looking for a reliable , well designed large lawn mower and heard Stihl had put own name to Viking mowers .

The advice in shop was clear and straight forward . I was happy to spend the money on a good mower and trust that i can get it serviced there in time .

The talk through the mower operation on leaving with it was idiot proof , just what I was looking for ."

Purchased New Stihl Battery powered light weight, long-reach pole & hand held hedge trimmers, extra batteries a 2 in 1 easy file. Then went back for the Stihl easy blower & a battery bag.
 
Cost: £767
 

"Only just found Galloway tools after living here 10 years, what a fantastic place. prices are very competitive even with online for just a few pounds more you can take your machine there and then, no hassle with deliveries, returns etc. I would have no hesitation what so ever in recommending Galloway tools. Staff are very knowledgeable and happy to demonstrate any products, happy & friendly atmosphere, a pleasure to buy from.

Keep up the good work x"

Equipment purchase .
 
Cost: £400
 

"We have had many years of experience with Galloway Hire tools , mainly hiring gardening machinery but also servicing and smaller sales , all staff are friendly , welcoming and very knowledgeable giving sound advice.
This was our first purchase of garden machinery from the Stihl range being a hedge trimmer and strimmer both cordless and battery powered.
The service and advice from Galloway was , as usual , exemplary and the performance and ease of use of the equipment is outstanding !"

Supply of new garden tools - long reach hedge cutters and standard size hedge cutters, small strimmer for grass edging. All battery powered
 
Cost: £625
 

"A very friendly, professional, knowledgeable and easy experience. I had been before for a few things and was impressed by the service that I received and by the very knowledgeable staff. I was very impressed and this made my decision to return when I wanted some new equipment very easy. I received the same great service and I am thoroughly pleased with the equipment that I bought. I have the added comfort of knowing that should I have a problem, I know that I can go back and talk to and deal with people who really care."

Purchase replacement pressure washer
 
Cost: £340
 

"We were so pleased with our purchase and installation of a stihl robotic mower last year that they were the obvious choice when it came to replacing our pressure washer.

Even with reduced staff due to social distancing service was great and social distancing was observed at all times."
