Stihl Imow supplied and installed
 
Cost: £2350
 

"From first contact to final installation Kev and Linda provided a fantastic professional service. I had dealt with Kev at a family members installation so knew the great service we would get. Kev provided us with knowledge and understanding of what we required and kept us up to date with the timing on delivery. Once the imow arrived it was installed immediately and Kev was fantastic continuing with the set up over the following days.
Can't speak highly enough of Kev and Linda at Galloway Hire Tools"

Purchase of a new Stihl strummer

"Knew what I wanted to buy ,so was in and out quickly .
Machine was started up and new features were explained how it differed from my previous version,which I bought from the same supplier years ago .
Both ladies were friendly and had a bit of banter about them ,which is more pleasant to deal with"

Bought a new Stihl Cordless mower.
 
Cost: £480
 

"I had been looking for a new mower to replace a heavy petrol mower as neither myself or my wife could use it anymore, I had read reviews about various cordless mowers and Stihl seemed to regularly come up on top . Called in and was shown the range by very friendly knowledgable ladies and bought one that day. Everything was very well demonstrated and explained and it is great to buy and support a local business."

Stihl MSA300 Cordless Chainsaw
 
Cost: £699
 

"A great chainsaw, but a bit different to previous cordless chainsaws. So they guided me through how it functioned and how the different power levels work. Very much impressed with the saw and the usual fantastic service and extra details requested."

I had 2 imows installed and purchased a strimmer
 
Cost: £6200
 

"My initial enquiry was very quickly followed up by a site visit and within a few days I had both Imows installed with no inconvenience whatsoever. Their service is excellent. Called to say that my dog had dug up some cable and it was dealt with the very same day. I cant rate them highly enough.

Galloway hire tools recently helped HMP Dumfries in aquiring new machinery, changing from fuel based to battery operated.
 
Cost: £6000
 

"Galloway hire tools staff from start to finish during the whole process were very helpful and understanding from giving us initial information on the product we were intending to buy, detailed quotes, and the delivery and after care advice which was of a very high professional standard. They were very knowledgeable and helpful with all our questions and queries. I would highly recommend anyone to use them in the future."

Purchase of new cordless hedge cutter.

"Over the years I have used Galloway hire for all my stihl tools and any servicing and repairs I have needed.usually when I go in I have a idea of what iam after and they will show and explain what they can offer itís not a case of them selling the most expensive tool but more explaining to you the tool most suitable for your job they will explain to you any extras that are available but never push you into buying them. as a local family run business they should be supported before the big national companyís who lack the personal service and after care support."
