Naismith & Jones About Us


A Little Bit of History

The business was established in Tauranga in 1964. Arthur Naismith owned it for twenty of those years and Howard Jones, current owner/manager for the last 25 years plus. Over this time we have developed and maintained our high standards in the business of small quality motors for property and garden care.

Our many loyal customers, throughout the Bay of Plenty, are testimony to our superior products, sound careful advice and reliable service work shop. Today we have 80 plus years of combined expertise in the field of power equipment.

The benefits to you as one of our customers

We invite you to be a customer of ours. When you buy a lawn mower, a chain saw, a ride on mower or any other small motor item from us there are several benefits. Amongst others free fuel up, free pre-delivery running check, prompt free pick-up and delivery within the city, free first service check (after specified time), free appraisals for repair or trade in.

The right advice from us will ensure that you buy the right equipment for your individual property needs or your contracting work. This is important. The market choice is wide and varied; mistakes made for lack of the right advice are costly. We can arrange home visits to larger properties for advice or demonstration of appropriate equipment – arranged on an individual basis.

Words of Wisdom

Cheaper products may seem tempting. We deal with the consequences of such purchases every day – these include breakdowns, early wear and tear, unreliability or simply not being up to the job. On numerous occasions spare parts do not exist. Buy from us and care for your purchase well, you will not be disappointed and your property care will always be a pleasure.

Our Point of Difference

We have some rather good “old fashioned” principles that have been our guide in that we feel strongly that our personal friendly and honest approach, within small premises, gives you the best possible service.

We do know our stuff and stand by what we say and what we do, that coupled with our free benefits makes it all rather different than shelf buying from the larger stores. Why not give us a call or come in and see us.
