Royal Highland Show, Million Pound Week for Morris Leslie

The Royal Highland Show has for more than a decade been a key date in the Morris Leslie Group’s event calendar. Being one of Scotland’s most iconic events, it showcases the very best of agricultural and construction equipment and provides an opportunity for the Morris Leslie team to catch up with industry partners and customers, both old and new.

2018’s RHS has smashed all previous records for the company, achieving weekly sales of more than £1 million of plant equipment and modular buildings. With all the machines on the stand being sold in the first 3 days the show team went on to sell a large number of machines from their extensive stocklist of nearly new equipment.

Garry Howland, Morris Leslie’s Plant Sales Manager said, “This week has demonstrated the strength of the market for top quality, modern, low houred machines direct from our hire fleet. The RHS has always been a great show for us but this year has surpassed all expectations and we would like to express our thanks to the organisers and customers, both our regular clients and those purchasing for the first time.”

With 2000 telehandler, excavators, dumpers, rollers and access platforms still for sale, this is only the beginning of what is looking like being a great summer for the company.  The equipment comes direct from Morris Leslie’s hire fleet of 5000 machines which are available for hire nationally from Cornwall to Caithness, Garry, says “We hire nationwide and we sell worldwide.”

Morris Leslie is a major national company that also runs regular vehicle and plant auctions, modular buildings and a property division. Asides the plant equipment on display, the company were demonstrating their high quality modular buildings and classic car auctions at the RHS and would like to express their gratitude to The Jim Clark Trust for joining them at the RHS and bringing along a 1967 Lotus Elan once owned by the racing legend Jim Clark himself.
