As a leading provider of agronomy services, Advance Grass Solutions caters to loyal customers – from domestic lawncare right through to Ryder Cup venues and Premier League football clubs.


Advance Grass Solutions (AGS) is a leading provider of agronomy services. They hold industry-recognised degrees and qualifications in sports turf, soil science and sustainable land management. Last year, their head office purchased a refurbished Aisle Master 15NE. This was bought from Locators to accommodate their facility’s newly installed racking. However, expansion of the business saw AGS open a new storage depot just down the road from their current site. This required a new forklift to maintain day-to-day operations and ensure the business continued to run smoothly.


Locators investigated how best to approach their materials handling solutions going forward. Owing to the optimised layout of their head office, the Aisle Master would remain and an existing Toyota 1.8 diesel truck would be transferred. This was simply because AGS had come to rely on the Aisle Master’s for its innovative space-saving prowess within their current facility. However, this left their head office devoid of a truck for yard work and the unloading and loading of goods outside. That’s when we suggested a refurbished Toyota 8FDF25. This versatile diesel-powered truck capable of intensive operations – both inside and out. Safe manoeuvrability and fast acceleration make the Tonero range ideal for productivity. Happy with the solution, AGS agreed to purchase the truck and we delivered it to their door in our own covered transport.

“AGS have purchased several machines from Locators over the last two years. The latest was a Toyota Tonero truck. I couldn’t be happier with the outstanding service that James and his colleagues delivered. They efficiently dealt with our dilemma and perfectly understood our requirements – going so far as to have had the refurbished model at hand. Pleasure to work with and exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend.”
