If you are in the market for a ride on mower for sale, but aren’t quite sure where to start your search, you have come to the right place. There are a number of ways that you can work towards finding your next mower, but some methods will hold more success for you than others. In this article, we have outlined 6 of the methods that you could choose to use.

Local Supplier

We are sure that there will be an outdoor power products supplier somewhere nearby – you might drive past them on your way to work each morning or see the advertisements on the school run. It is definitely worth dropping into your local supplier to see what they have on offer – not only will you have a shorter distance to travel, you might be able to get something delivered that day and will be supporting local business.

Online

For many people, shopping online is the easiest option – you can do it at a time that suits you (on your lunch break or whilst relaxing in bed of an evening) and you can easily compare all of your options. Just make sure that you are looking at Australian stores (or stores that will ship/have premises in Australia) to avoid disappointment. You might also want to go into the store to check out the mower before you make a purchase.

Newspaper Ads

If you are interested in a used mower, you should be able to pick up a bargain in the classifieds section of the newspaper. This is a place where many people choose to advertise equipment they no longer need. If you are set on a new model, you should check out your local newspaper – suppliers in the surrounding area are known to take out advertisements in most issues, especially if they are having a special of some kind.

Radio Ads

Most people spend at least an hour in the car each day – of this hour, how much time do you spend listening to the radio? Many of the suppliers around your city may choose to advertise their products and specials on the radio, especially at certain times of the year (such as end of financial year). The next time you’re in the car, make sure you keep an ear out for a local supplier who is having a sale on mowers or has a lot in stock.

Television Ads

Even though this is probably the least common way that mower suppliers advertise themselves, it is still worth keeping an eye out during the ads for someone nearby. You will find that the kinds of suppliers who have the money to advertise on television are often quite large, meaning that they have a lot of stock and offer good discounts. Just be way of adverts for suppliers who aren’t in your suburb, capital city or even in your state.

Word of Mouth

Arguably, one of the best ways to find ride on mowers is by asking around – your family and friends are sure to have dealt with a supplier or two over the years. Start by asking those who live nearby or who have lots of experience with outdoor power products, as they should be able to point you in the right direction. Be wary of any horror stories and try to avoid these suppliers where possible to prevent falling into the same traps.

As you can see, there are a number of ways that you can find high quality ride on mowers for sale – the method that you choose will depend entirely on where you live and how much time you have. We would actually recommend that you use a combination of methods to ensure that you have all your bases covered and know exactly what you’re looking for.
