A New Partnership: Diggermate and Plantmark
Mini Excavator hire is now available at nurseries, making this the ultimate one-stop-shop.
Plantmark Nurseries have teamed up with Diggermate to offer mini excavators and tight access earthmoving equipment rental hire from within their nurseries. This gives their customers the benefit of being able to grab all supplies and equipment for earthworks in one location.
Early 2021, Diggermate Merrimac opened its business within the Plantmark Merrimac location, offering mini and micro excavators, bobcats, and dingo’s right inside the Plantmark Nursery. Plantmark recognised the need for this relationship while searching for another point of difference, and chose to partner with Diggermate due to its extremely well-known brand, developing a franchise network, and focus on marketing and tech.
The convenience of booking machines online—which are ready for pick-up and drop-off—when picking up plants, is something that fits well with Plantmark focus. Plantmark has an equally extensive online and digital growth focus; they offer online ordering for trade customers, an extended customer service focus for retail customers, plus an online plant finder and plant advice within their website.
Diggermate founder Mick Watkins is excited about the opportunity to provide a better service to the Diggermate customers through this relationship. “I look forward to working with Plantmark to enhance our customer experience through convenience and customer service. We also see great opportunities to arm our customers with greater knowledge on how to use our equipment to achieve their landscaping goals.”
Plantmark sees the relationship as equally important for business growth and customer satisfaction. “With our growth plans in, we are excited to be able to offer another point of difference to our business model. Being a one-stop location for all your landscaping needs is a big attraction for us, and we see that the partnership with Diggermate will fit well in our business and offer our customers a great benefit”, said Plantmark Business Development Manager for QLD, Ryan.
Diggermate will be extending to the Willawong Plantmark location in early 2021.
