Default Freeman plant sales Surrey

Hi,

Anyone had anything to do with this outfit?

They have a machine I quite fancy but haven't the time to go and look at it so am wondering how trust worthy they are.

Thanks, Ste

i look into this stuff often,

there is a limited company registered which is usually good (better than a email address)

the pictures look like the same yard which is also good

However the phone numbers really dont show much, if you google my number for example it brings you to adverts, websites, plant worx etc etc

They look ok to me, the prices are ok not to cheap for the market, also they have a lorry with graphics in the background

Thanks for the replies lads.

Regy I've kinda formed the same opinion, I like the look of the little hanix. As a cheap extra machine I think it would do and in my opinion it's about on its money.

But I haven't the time to traipse done there and could really do with another machine in the yard before the end of this week.

There's a lot newer Hyundai local to me but it's nearly double the money so it's maybe a bit more than I want to spend. That said the bloke is a true gentleman and I could have it on the yard by 9 in the morning.

Unless you know where there's anything cheap? I've no problem buying unseen if I know someone can be trusted but it is a bit strange that nobody's heard of this lot.

But hey, everyone can't know everyone can they?

If its legit its cheap as F...

usually in the trade you get to know pepople, as you know maybe i am in.

I cant understand how business's like this dont advertise on ebay and mascus and really rely on a aging and expensive plant trader and a website.

Incidentally i am sure its fine i just have a b in my bonnet over so many scammers out there and it drags the industry down a lot

We know him and have brought a few its off him without issue, he has a small yard on the same estate as us, he was at one time a Hanix dealer and had a decent plant hire business but sold out to Speedy i think.
