When times are tight, it is even more essential for contractors to offer an efficient, reliable service in order to maintain client loyalty and attract new any new business that is going. And for landscapers and grounds maintenance contractors, this means having the latest and most cost effective machinery, a tough call when established work from the housebuilding sector is in short supply.
Financing machinery purchases has become increasingly difficult as the major players withdraw from this sector, but CNH Capital, part of the New Holland family, remains committed to supporting its customers and helping their businesses ride the difficult financial climate.
CNH Capital is offering some attractive finance packages for the groundcare market this year. While packages can be tailored for individual needs, all purchasers can take advantage of a 0% finance deal being offered on the entire groundcare power unit range. This entails 2+22 payments at 0% on 50% of the list price, a boon when cashflow is tight.
It could permit a contractor to get his hands on the new Boomer series compact tractors which can handle all manner of landscaping implements, or finance the purchase of the latest G6000 series commercial mowers, ideal to enhance that grasscutting contract.
Concerns about breakdowns and maintenance costs can cause sleepless nights, so New Holland has devised the Service Plus warranty programme which allows the customer to protect his investment against mechanical failures for up to five years. All major components except wearing parts such as tyres and belts are covered, offering considerable peace of mind with a busy workload.
Both programmes are available until 31st December 2009, and New Holland's groundcare specialist James Doyle comments: "These packages allow the customer to accurately budget his fixed costs, which is a great help in times of restricted cashflow. We work closely with CNH Capital to ensure that all packages are designed to meet our customers' needs, and we would expect these to be particularly successful in the landscaping sector, which needs top class machinery but is currently experiencing a financial squeeze."
