For just under two decades, Canford Magna Garden Centre has catered to its customers by offering a wide selection of quality garden furniture and outdoor gardening supplies.

Background & Brief

Established in 2006, Canford Magna Garden Centre sells a large selection of quality garden products. They specialise in pack bedding and pot bedding. The business also displays 30,000 square feet of outdoor garden furniture and indoor cane furniture.

Canford Magna Garden Centre is developing and expanding its site to include the sale of exotic specimens. Large potted olive trees, imported from Spain and Italy put the garden centre in a tricky situation. With no means of safely transporting them, they reached out to Locators for advice.


Having reviewed their situation, we recommended a Manitou 625 telehandler. Paired with a pot handling attachment to safely transport the olive trees – it’s a winning combination. The pot clamp is Manitou Group homologated, which provides it with a load chart in accordance with the EN1459-B stability tests.

Manitou is famed for its fleet of easy to handle, ergonomic and safe rough terrain vehicles.

The Manitou range of telehandlers offers one of the widest range of telescopic trucks available on the market. The compact MT625 is the most popular machine in the range and is well-suited to operations with limited access or height restrictions. This truck will provide a versatile means of safe and efficient transportation for all types of plants and materials around the site. We certainly know it will assist Canford Magna Garden Centre with its flourishing product range.

“Quality kit and reliable service is a given with Locators, so we knew they would be the right people to talk to about this venture.”
