When buying from WM Plant we will ensure that the correct machine is recommended to suit your application.  All machines are supplied fully assembled, oiled and fuelled if required and tested.  A full hand over procedure is given to every customer ensuring familiarity with the operating procedures and safety features of the machine.  We will also take care of registering any warranties that need to be recorded with the manufacturer so you can rest assured every machine is sold with a full manufacturer’s warranty.  This is unlike buying from the ‘Sheds’ or over the Internet where the end user is expected to assemble, oil and fuel each machine before use.  For some manufacturers, this can invalidate any warranty available if this work is not carried out by an authorised service agent.

We also offer no obligation demonstrations for some of the machines we sell including ride on mowers.  We will come to your property to show you it cutting and give you the opportunity to use it too. We also welcome part exchange.

If your job does not justify buying a machine, or you would like to try a machine for a period of time before buying our Hire department has a complete range of garden and building machinery.  All machines are serviced, and a full hand over is given to each customer ensuring they are familiar with the operating instructions and safety procedures prior to every hire.  We operate a delivery and collection service.  Please contact us for more details.
