Experienced Garden Machinery Repair Services in the Bromley/Chislehurst area

Your local specialists for servicing, maintenance and repair of all types of garden machinery and horticultural equipment.

We are a brand new company comprised of ex FR Jones workshop staff with decades of industry experience. Our priority will be undertaking repairs for our local customers in the Bromley, Kent and South East area. We’re offering the same great level of quality craftsmanship, but with a much speedier turnaround.

We are operating from a new workshop from our residential address in Chislehurst on a temporary basis, until we are able to acquire premises that is more appropriate and convenient for our customers. We are actively seeking premises so any recommendations/referrals would be gratefully received. In the meantime, please reach out to us by phone or email to obtain the drop off location.

We look forward to welcoming you, and thank you for your support!

Matt and Sami

*UPDATE* ~ We are now your local authorised agent for Masport, Echo, Mountfield, Stiga, Cobra, Billy Goat and Ego machinery.

What's involved when servicing your machine?

We are not your average service agent.

We've broken servicing down into two categories, an intermediate service and a full service. The reason is, some machines just require a simple engine service and a blade sharpen which we consider an intermediate service. Other machines that have in-depth engine/drive issues will require a lot more time so will be a full service. When were fully servicing a machine, we like to make sure it is just like it was when it was new.

When we service a machine, it's more accurate to call it an overhaul/restoration because we are so thorough.

All petrol machines have their engine and drive systems stripped down, fluids drained and are then jet washed. This is mainly done so we can see for any failing parts that may be covered with debris. Electrical machines are hand cleaned.

All moving parts are inspected for correct function and any worn items (belts or bearings for example) are replaced. If the budget begins to creep up we contact you so there are no nasty surprises.

Every service job has the following replaced: air filter, recoil rope, spark plug, oil and diaphragms.

The carbs are all thoroughly cleaned using compressed air and then take a bath in our heated ultrasonic cleaner. Worn diaphragms/gaskets are replaced and then the carb is tuned.

Blades are sharpened and set (or replaced if really worn), cables are lubricated and adjusted.

We take pride in our craft and every service comes with a three month guarantee. Our work will not let you down!

(accidental damage, misuse or excessive wear and tear excluded).

All repairs are risk-free. You are only charged if a repair is successful. If we are unable to repair your machine for an economical price, you are not charged.

All of our repairs are backed by a three month guarantee. This excludes general wear and tear, misuse and accidental damage.
