Advantages to buying your mini skid steer attachments from a Vermeer dealer

When it comes to purchasing attachments for your mini skid steer, you have a few different options. The first (and hopefully most obvious) option is from your local Vermeer dealership. There are a few benefits to buying from your dealer: high quality and durable attachment designs, experienced service technicians, a supportive dealer network, and versatile purchasing and rental options.

As you can see, there is a lot to consider before purchasing your mini skid steer attachment, so let’s take a look at why buying from your local Vermeer dealer can benefit you and your business long term.

Attachment compatibility

Purchasing an attachment that works seamlessly with your mini skid steer is arguably the most important consideration to make. When Vermeer attachments are being made, they are designed specifically for Vermeer equipment, and to be used for niche applications within the tree care, rental and landscape industries.

Cole Chesnut, product manager for Tree Care, Rental, Landscape says, “With a specialized focus in designing attachments that work well for a variety of applications, we are able to produce high-quality attachments that complement different Vermeer machines.” An example of this is utilizing a grapple, that works well not only with our mini skid steers, but also as a way to feed brush chippers.

Dealer support

Doing business at a dealership means gaining an extensive support network. That dealership support begins at the initial purchase, all the way to the end of that machine’s life, and every phase in between.

Your Vermeer dealer is dedicated to giving you a premium experience — from selecting the best mini skid steer model and attachments for your need — all the way to providing parts and service when you need it most. When purchasing a mini skid steer, you can also purchase multiple attachments at once, making your business a one-stop-shop for a variety of applications. Another benefit to purchasing from a dealership is attachment availability. Chances are when you need a specific attachment, your local dealership will have it in stock.

With this support you can have techs out on your jobsite if issues arise or quickly make a phone call to order parts, all to get you finished with your job quickly. When you purchase from a dealership, you are building trust for a long-term relationship. This means when it comes to purchasing parts, upgrading your model, adding an attachment to your fleet or simply getting additional information on your machine, your dealer will likely be familiar with you, your fleet and your business.

Experienced service technicians

While the attachments themselves require minimal maintenance, it is important to keep in mind the service requirements necessary for your mini skid steer. When it comes time to take your machine in to a dealership, there is a Vermeer technician ready to serve.

At a dealership, your equipment will be seen by knowledgeable service technicians who dedicate time to continuing their education with hands-on practice. One way that Vermeer dealerships provide you with skilled and experienced service technicians is through the Service Technician Certification Program (STCP). Each domestic industrial dealership location has at least one certified technician, with program participation varying based on dealership.

Although each Vermeer dealership is unique in how they support customers with high-quality service, they all aim to keep you up and running by providing exceptional customer service, and a timely turnaround for both parts and service.

Versatile options

A Vermeer dealership is not only reliable, but flexible, too. If you are not looking to purchase an attachment or a mini skid steer, then a local Vermeer dealership can assist you with finding a rental store that has the equipment you need. A rental store can not only provide the attachment for a job ahead, but also the machine to pair with it if you are needing to maximize productivity on the jobsite or make a tight deadline. Flexibility also extends to the maintenance and service of your machine or attachment. If you run into an issue, you can load your equipment up to take into the dealership, or have the service done onsite.

As you can see, there are many considerations to make if you are in the market for an attachment for your mini skid steer. No matter what you choose, keep in mind the long-term advantages working alongside a Vermeer dealer can provide for your business goals.
