MTS Group help DIY SOS for the Manchester Veterans Project

Thursday 29th October 2015 - MTS Group, MTS Plant Hire & Sales

DIY SOS Veterans Special

October 2015 saw BB1 show one of the most moving pieces of TV for some time, the DIY SOS Veterans Special. The two part episode saw Nick Knowels and the team tackle their largest project yet, as they set about the task of renovating the whole of Canada Street in the North of Manchester.

The newly refurbished homes are to be provided to a number of deserving military veterans, in what is equivalent to a small favour when compared to the sacrifices which they have made for all of us.  The TV special followed three military veterans and their family’s all of whom had been affected either mentally or physically by the recent confits in Iraq and Afghanistan. The program progressed to finally show the veterans introduced to their new homes and the extraordinary team of workers who have donated their time to make this all possible in what was an emotional ending to each of the two shows.

We were very pleased when we were asked to help with the project by supplying some of our machinery, and jumped at the chance to be a part of the fantastic venture, even in this small way. It is an honour to be able to help our ex-service men and women in any way, all of whom have given so much for us all.

We provided a brand new Bobcat E17 mini excavator along with two dumpers for use over the course of the project. The compact 1.7T machine was ideal for the landscaping work needed in the gardens of the homes, and could easily access the narrow path behind the properties to get to where it was required.

At MTS Group we are always more than happy to assist a worthy cause, and have previously helped of DIY SOS on other projects across the North of England.

Testimonials

Chiz Carter - Lead Administrator - Toyota Manufacturing UK Ltd

We were extremely impressed by MTS Group's high standard of customer service and communication during the hire of event vehicles for a VIP visit at our facility. The vehicles were delivered on time in great condition. Many thanks for your great service.

John Cassidy – Travis Perkins

MTS has been a great company to cross hire small plant in for our customers. The great thing about MTS is the friendly staff who are very committed to making sure Travis Perkins is a priority customer and will move things around in their daily transport too fit urgent orders in. Myself and my team now use Mts as our first point of call as we have confidence in how the business works from the staff to the machines themselves.

Andrew Fairnie - Golf Services Manager, The Gleneagles Hotel

Our guests have high expectations when they come to golf at Gleneagles, and the classic aesthetics and high quality finish on the Club Car vehicles have met their needs perfectly.

The GPS system in particular has been very popular – in addition to providing course information, it even allows golfers to email themselves their score card to review at home.

Nick Rushworth - Golf Operations Director, MacDonald Linden Hall

It is a pleasure to work with MTS Golf and Utility Vehicles, the service and support they provide has been first class. We originally signed up for 14 brand new buggies for one year to sample working with the company.

We were pleased with the service and the product provided and have since signed up for the next few seasons and hopefully with many more to come after that.
