Where can I buy lawn mowers at wholesale prices?
Even if we were buying 100 mowers at one time we would negotiate a deal with the vendors in our local market.
Every December we test the market to see if the price we are paying for equipment and supplies is still extremely competitive (we buy most of the equipment and supplies we anticipate needing for the upcoming year in December for tax reasons).
Over the years we have spent a lot of time looking around for the very best prices. The prices we can negotiate in the local market are generally as good as any we can find.
Note: If you want maximum negotiating power buy all of your lawn care equipment at once.
Even if we were able to slightly beat the local vendors we normally buy mowers, line trimmers, stick edges, trailers, truck beds, etc from by buying out of state or 100 miles away — we would continue to purchase from the local vendors we have relationships with.
I firmly believe that if we take care of our vendors and send them a lot of business they will take care of us in a hurry when we need very fast service. (Or need them to help us find a new employee.)
If not, we will find another local vendor next year when we make a very large equipment purchase.
We try to be very loyal to our vendors as long as they are good to us and remain very competitive on price.
