Agratech Update and Thank-you

Welcome to our first blog post in a while, keep reading for updates, industry news and special offers!
Firstly, we wanted to say a HUGE “thank you” for your business during the many lockdowns. Your orders, big and small, were very much appreciated and certainly kept us extremely busy.
We also wanted to apologise that customer service suffered a little during this time, as we focussed our efforts on getting your orders out, sometimes with just one team member, as we juggled isolations, home schooling and the lot! Looking forward, and with a new member soon joining the team, we will implement live chat, alongside telephone sales and technical support.

Agratech 4 Day week operating from 25 October

As the season draws to a close, we have decided to operate on a 4 day week basis until Christmas. This means that orders will be shipped Monday to Thursday only.

There will be no order collection, customer service or technical help on Fridays. Orders placed from late Thursday (12 noon cut-off time) to Sunday will be despatched on Monday.

Remember, you can order 24/7 from our website

https://www.tidyingwithtania.com

As the dull, drab weather and Lockdown3 continues, you might decide to put your time to good use and tackle some ‘garden’ jobs like tidying out the shed, planning this years vegetable planting, and servicing your sprayers!

Hopefully, you cleaned it out after it’s last use, before storing away. if not, you might find that the lance (wand) has been frost damaged, or you may have misplaced your nozzle cap! We have replacement lances for all major sprayer brands – Cooper Pegler, Berthoud, Matabi, Marolex, IK, Mesto, Hardi, Cuprinol and Ronseal – most of the standard replacement lances are listed here, and you’ll find triggers and lance O’Rings, washers and nozzle holders within the section for your sprayer type, from here, along with extension lances and boom kits.

Service Repair and Seal Kits containing most of the seals, springs and small internal parts you need to give your sprayer a good pre-season overhaul can be found here.

For Cooper Pegler Maxipro, Classic and Series 2000 sprayers, many small parts can be bought individually, with parts drawings available to help you identify the correct part you need. They can be found here

We have collated useful videos showing simple stripping, rebuilding and repairing of some of the most popular sprayer brands on our YouTube channel.

If you need any help to find the right parts for your sprayer, please don’t hesitate to contact us. During Lockdown3, the best way to do this is by email as we continue to operate on a reduced staffing basis.

UK Covid-19 Lockdown3 Update

During this latest lockdown we are remaining open and orders are being despatched daily, Monday to Friday, although parcels to Europe are currently unavailable as Parcelforce has temporarily suspended service.

The majority of website listed items remain in stock for immediate despatch, but where items are not in stock, there may be some delays in processing orders as some of our suppliers are operating reduced staffing levels, and some have been affected by freight delays at Dover.

Telephone customer services will be limited as we are also operating reduced staffing, so your best method of contact is via email using the contact details on the website.

Our warehouse is not open for ‘browsers’ although we are offering a collect in person option for pre-ordered items. You must place and pay for your order via the website, we cannot accept any cash nor process payments at this time.

We thank you for your continued business and wish you all well.

Snow Disruption!

As pretty as it looks, this snow is causing major disruption…

Snow Gate, Rossendale, 1-3-18

Orders were prepared for despatch on Thursday 1 March, but courier services were unable to get into our yard to collect. Similarly, Royal Mail were unable to gain access to collect our mail so we tried to deliver it to the sorting office but we were unable to do so.  

We are not forecast any more snow today, so we will be despatching what we can.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused.
