Valley Tractor and Farm Equipment in Alexandria offers the same quality service to every customer, whether they own a large commercial farm or are simply trimming weeds on a tiny front yard.

“Our main claim to fame is that we give excellent customer service both before and after the sale,” said Rick Marsh, who, along with wife, Jill, owns Valley Tractor. “People feel like they can trust us, and that’s our No. 1 priority.”

In addition to carrying the full line of Cub Cadet lawn-care equipment, both commercial and residential grade, the store will soon begin selling the full line of Mahindra Tractor.

Valley Tractor also provides parts and repair for any make and model lawn care or farm equipment, regardless of where it was originally purchased.

With a number of large farms in the area being divided and sold, Marsh said that it’s residential equipment that sells the best.

Valley Tractor has made customer service a priority for its female clientele.

“A lot of women are afraid that they might be taken advantage of since they often don’t have the depth of knowledge of the industry,” Marsh said. “But we always shoot straight and are willing to go that extra mile, answering all questions and making sure they know how to safely operate a piece of equipment.”
