Small Farmer Sells Attachments Online
After careful research and only considering Chinese factories that were in business for more than a decade and offered at least a year warranty, he ordered a container of tools. He was satisfied with the quality, and the pricing allowed him to offer customers fair prices. Now he regularly places orders from five different factories and keeps his farm’s warehouse well-stocked.
Some tools, like breaker hammers, are as much as 50 percent less than comparable tools on the market. Other equipment may be 10 to 15 percent less.
“As a small business owner, I’m not in business to be greedy, but I have my margins set and offer a fair deal,” Hancock says.
“Equipment for Less is very helpful,” says an Apple Hill, Ont., FARM SHOW reader, who suggested we write about the business.
Besides breaker hammers, Hancock carries just about every kind of attachment homeowners, farmers and small businesses need. That includes everything from pallet forks to rock bucket grapples to equipment for tilling gardens, chipping wood, moving snow or leveling driveways.
There are also excavator attachments and heavy-duty tool cabinets. Ordering and checkout are easy through the website, but Hancock welcomes customers to buy directly from the farm if they want to see the quality of the products for themselves.
When shipping is required, Hancock often works with customers to pick up items at terminals to save money. Most business is with Canadians, though he can also ship to the U.S.
