We are Drip UK
DripUK Offer a full circular service to our customers. Starting from an initial phone conversation, potential customers provide us with field details Water supply position, Direction of planting & map references.
With this information we produce a site plan and an initial specific field quotation based on the growers own actual field site. The first time we meet with the grower we have something to work from and build upon. Growers may provide some equipment of their own which will reduce the overall cost. This approach gives growers a very accurate costing from the very first meeting with no hidden costing or unexpected call out charges over and above these early costings.
We modify this field plan and Quotation to accommodate any findings from our first meeting. At this point the growers have a full quotation for both Purchase & Hire of the new system. We can supply on either basis with several options to help the grower in their final decision-making process.
Our model usually sees us supplying Hire equipment in year one giving growers a first season to understand how systems work and how we can help and work together to get the best from the investment. Seeing the equipment work on their own soil types, their own varieties and with their own labour and existing infrastructure for pumping etc makes a big difference to future planning. Growers have the option to buy for year two or hire again. It is not unknown in some cases for us to jointly decide that Drip irrigation is not most suited for that business!
Decisions made, we supply and install all equipment, Commissioning and handing over to growers & managers for the season. In some crops we provide the management of the systems or attend weekly to assist with fertigation applications or maintenance. As the season comes to an end our team will clear the fields of equipment and remove the tape from cropped area ready to make way for harvesting machinery. Once removed from the ground we will remove the tape to a recycling facility. Providing the grower with a waste disposal receipt in order to comply with their various assurance schemes.
