Morris Leslie Event Hire Invest Further in Gator Fleet

The youngest Gator hire fleet in the UK has just got even bigger! Morris Leslie Event Hire have expanded their fleet at their Woking Depot in Surrey to over 120 Gators and after listening to customer feedback have purchased 10 four seater models to compliment the fleet. “We have been using the John Deere HPX 2 seaters for a number of years now as part of our comprehensive range of plant equipment for events and festivals and last year we trialled a few four seater Gators which went down very well with our client base. ” explained Graham Ogilvie, Group Operations Director. “The trial’s success was down to the new John Deere S4 model’s ability to move 4 people around a showground or 2 people and plenty of kit, quickly and efficiently.”

The Morris Leslie Gator fleet can be found at many shows, TV sets, festivals and events across the UK and Europe with customers finding them a reliable “go anywhere” utility vehicle. Sarah Del-Bianco, Account Manager, has taken on running the event hire at the company and is looking forward to offering greater choice on the 4x4 utility vehicles from Morris Leslie. “One of the biggest contracts we have is supplying 40 Gators to a music festival for a 4 week hire to help with the build up and take down. The main reason for sticking with the John Deere brand is the reliability and proven success which keeps customers coming back for more and offering the 4 seater model will now mean greater flexibility for event organisers.”

Morris Leslie has worked closely with local supplying John Deere dealer Farol Ltd in the purchase of the latest batch of Gators. “We are very pleased Morris Leslie chose Farol Ltd again in the supply of the Gators and strengthens the relationship between the two companies” James Moore, Farol Ltd Golf & Grass Director added. “All the machines were prepared and delivered on time and most were sign written before being delivered to Woking so they can go straight out on their first hire jobs”

The Morris Leslie Group have gone through a large expansion over the last few years and have recently purchased 1300 machines to expand their plant and event hire business including more than 500 excavators and 450 telehandlers. Operating from 9 depots across the UK and employing over 200 staff the Morris Leslie group is certainly going one direction, forwards!
