PDQ Machines mercy dash to Chelsea Flower Show 2014

For the fifth year on the trot some of the world famous gardening show exhibitors are using our not-quite-as-famous short term rental credit card machines at the 2014 RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Mark Piercy of Light Innovation Ltd who offer a unique range of lighting, a quality range of products adding aesthetic appeal and ambience to any home.

Chris Lisney who creates striking outdoor sculptures

And Joanna of Jardins Animes who offer useful, decorative and innovative garden products. “The best of innovative plant-supports, windchimes, topiary frames and much more…”

Things have been so busy at PDQ Machines HQ we weren’t going to pay a visit to brush shoulders with all those green-fingered celebs this year. But although weren’t there in person we were always available by phone, ready to act at a moment’s notice…

…as we did when Joanna of Jardins Animes called us yesterday because her credit card terminal went down. Our illustrious Director Simon Pond whipped out his Oyster Card and headed to Sloane Square before you could say: “Alan Titchmarsh”, with replacement machine in hand ensuring Joanna could continue trading until Saturday 24.

Joanna said: “A big thanks to Simon and PDQ Machines for acting so quickly. The Chelsea Flower Show is one of the busiest weeks of the season for Jardins Animes, and a working credit card machine is a vital component to ensuring we have a successful time at this spectacular event.”
