We understand that not everyone has the means of getting your ride on lawnmower to our workshop. We do offer a collection and delivery service. If you are within a certain radious this service is free of charge. If you happen to be out of our free collection radious there will be a slight charge dependant on how far away you are. This will be discussed upon booking your lawnmower in with us. 


We would advise the best time to service your ride on lawnmower is out of season during the winter periods. We understand when the grass is growing you will not want to be without your machine for any period of time.
