Finning to launch Ready2Go at Plantworx 2017

Finning UK & Ireland will launch its retail proposition, Ready2Go, featuring the Cat 300.9D, Cat 301.7D and Cat 305E2 CR excavators, on stand J52 at Plantworx 2017.

Built around customer requirements, the Ready2Go proposition will address the industry’s need for available, accessible, and affordable machines, as and when they’re needed.

The Finning and Caterpillar® team will be on hand across the three days to discuss what Ready2Go means for customers, providing further guidance on accessible, affordable machines and flexible finance options, available through Cat Financial.

Commenting on the launch Janine Turner of Finning said: “Ready2Go is all about simplifying how a customer can purchase a machine from Finning, or our Cat Compact Dealers. It is very similar to the way individuals are used to buying a car from an automotive dealer showroom.

“At Plantworx we will be launching Ready2Go with three key machines, the Cat 300.9D, Cat 301.7D and Cat 305E2 CR. Each unit will be clearly priced, coming with three buckets, two years unlimited hours warranty and access to 24/7 online parts ordering through

“For those customers wanting to finance a purchase, we have teamed up with Cat Financial to develop both affordable and flexible finance options that not only encompass the purchase of the machine, but also any additional items like service packages, hammer attachments, trailers and even an Isuzu D-max Pick-upTruck.

“So visitors to Plantworx will literally be able to drive away with a new machine and trailer, which really highlights the most important part of Ready2Go. It is all about fulfilling the immediate equipment needs of an individual owner operator or plant hire business. These units will be available in stock, prepped and ready to be delivered, so we will become very accessible. 

“As Ready2Go develops, we will also be looking to include relevant parts and service bundles within a single fixed and clearly costed package. Plantworx is just the start of this exciting new approach, with more machines, both new and used, set to be a part of Ready2Go.”
