With some saying that the economic climate isn’t looking quite so gloomy as we enter spring, many golf clubs, sports and amenity venues, and local authorities are still struggling to get credit. Fortunately, Lely UK has created a new interest-free finance plan to help its Toro customers buy the new equipment they need.
Available until June 2010, customers buying a brand new Toro can pay half now and half in a year’s time at zero per cent interest.
“Having the right machinery is crucial to maintaining course quality,” says Lely UK’s Toro sales manager Jeff Anguige. “So if you’re struggling to get by with old, inadequate equipment because you think you can’t afford to replace it this year, then think again! We’re delighted to be able to lend our customers a helping hand with this new deal.”
Meanwhile, a breadth of Lely customers also continues to enjoy the financial peace-of-mind that the Toro Protection Plus (TPP) plan brings. Aiming to provide the turf industry’s most comprehensive machinery protection, TPP enables customers to cover themselves against unexpected repair bills while securing their investment and helping them manage maintenance budgets to the penny.
TPP gives extended protection on commercial equipment beyond the company’s industry-leading standard two-year warranty for up to another three years, therefore providing cover for a total of five years. A prudent measure given the continuing credit crunch, costs can be built into customers’ operating budgets to help them stay-on budget and avoid repair costs from failure of a defective part or assembly.
“Overall, TPP offers excellent value for money as the cost of any repair could far exceed the cost of a plan, plus it locks in current prices against the cost of future repairs,” Jeff continues. “It can even be combined with equipment financing into one monthly payment to further ease the squeeze. It’s also worth speaking to your local Toro dealer about secondhand equipment to save on the cost of buying brand new.”
