We can trace our origins back to the early 1920’s, when Edgar (AKA Ted) Giles set up a door to door milk delivery business in the area. We can boast that the family name is still linked to our business with the 4 th generation, Ben Giles now in management. The business dynamic product may have changed along with the trading name, but we do look back with pride and still follow many of the early principles Edgar put in place, especially customer care.

Hargreaves Horticultural Machines was acquired by Roses Ironmongers in the late 80’s giving it a Garden Machinery platform to grow from. Things changed again in 2015 when the Garden Machinery and Hire arm of the business was re-branded as Shire Garden Machines Ltd. Our association with Roses Ironmongers of Devizes is as strong as ever, trading alongside each other.
We offer excellent machines and tools from our store here in Devizes. We trade with national and international companies such as, Stihl UK Ltd, Stiga UK Ltd, Ariens, Hayter, Countax, and Mountfield. These major companies have been chosen because of the quality offered within their range of machines & spare parts together with technical knowledge and warranty backup that we can pass on to our customers. Our aim, as ever, is to offer our present and future customers reliable well-built machines at very competitive prices with peace of mind with every purchase. We have a workshop of three very experienced fitters guided expertly by two highly trained senior engineers. Our Service and Sales crew here at Shire Garden Machines regularly attend service and product technical update courses provided by our machinery and spare part suppliers. Rest in the knowledge we can provide the best advice on the products available providing technical and service solutions to meet your needs. We also carry a vast array of spare parts to keep your investment running for many, many years.
