As of today, we are 6 weeks away from our biggest one day sale of the year… we call it GearUp!
Wednesday, February 27th 2019, the top commercial landscape companies in Atlanta and North Georgia will be coming to Howard Brothers’ stores to take advantage of the best sale prices on the equipment that they use day in and day out to help keep Georgia Green!
Whether it is a new walkbehind or zero turn mower, or you need some new trimmers, edgers and back pack blowers, GearUp is the best day to get those items. We have special manufacturer discounts and rebates that you need to take advantage. We’ll have sales staff and manufacturer reps on hand at all our stores to help you with your purchase needs.
Our sales team is ready today to work with you on your needs. Replace a few items, add a crew, or update your entire fleet.
2019 GearUp Parts Deal
This year, our parts deal is getting even better. To make your parts purchase easier, we are going to have 20% off all parts. That isn’t any different than we have had in past years, but this year with qualifying parts purchases, you will receive a gift card that can be used on future purchases. Depending on your total parts spend during GearUp, you can earn an additional $250 dollars toward anything at any of our Howard Brothers stores. Use that towards a new grill, maybe a Yeti Cooler, maybe equipment, parts or service. The choice is yours!
If you have any questions, see one of our parts associates who can help you create your parts needs list before the sale day.
Earn a Gift Card up to $250
Based Upon Your GearUp parts purchase!
*A qualifying total parts purchase of $250 or more earns a gift card as noted above. Card can not be used on 2/27/19 and can not be applied to an account.
Card may be used at any Howard Brothers Location.
Food and a Shirt
We’ve been feeding people for every Pro Day / Sales Event from the beginning. Come and grab a chicken sandwich or two during lunch. Come early and grab a donut. Come late and take home dinner for your family. We like to eat. We may as well break bread together on February 27th.
Any guesses what color the shirt will be this year?
In past years, we know that there has been some headaches when it comes to trying to run credit applications and needs on the sale day. Unfortunately, financing options have become more and more complicated over time as each manufacturer has unique requirements. You can help us by coming in now, before the day of the sale and getting your needs in. However, this year, we are going to have specialists in our stores whose goal is to make the day easy.
Ask about Zero Down Time
Does your equipment take sick days? Probably so. Something breaks. Something’s just not right. That somethingis going to keep you from making money while you get it fixed. You know that our shops are crazy busy during the heat of the season. With our Zero Down Time program, you’ll have brand new equipment available, if needed, while your equipment is being repaired in our shops. Ask one of our sales reps for information and make sure that you make it a part of your 2019 resolutions!
Now is the best time to Gear Up for Spring!
Get your list of what you need, in fact, come on in early if you want us to start a list for you.

Along with Synovus and 680 The Fan, we are all partnering to help restore an Atlanta-Area School Athletic Field. If you are aware of a school whose ball field could use some renovations, nominate it by filling out and submitting the form on 680thefan.com. Nominations will be accepted from June 4th-24th. Once they’re collected, we’ll select the finalists, have a final vote, and announce the winning school on July 9th. From July 13th-16th volunteers from Synovus, 680 The Fan, and our folks from Howard Brothers will renovate and repair the winning school’s field.
Howard Brother’s Ventrac Salesrep, Thad Pate recently renovated a ball field that had been neglected and needed some love. In a matter of hours, he and his Ventrac transformed this ball field into a very nice playing/practice field. Your field could be next!
Spring is coming in a hurry. That means that Atlanta and North Georgia’s grass is going to be greening up soon. Already we’re beginning to see many landscapers come through our doors and check out new product selection. They’re getting their hands on the new mowers and 2 cycle equipment which will be generating money for them in 2018.
We’ve bumped our GearUp sale up to February 28th this year. It’s a few weeks sooner than we have done in the recent past, but we believe it will be a huge year for our customers as many have expressed the need to update equipment and add additional crews.
Pricing on New Equipment
We aren’t kidding when we say that the best prices of the year are only available on 2/28/18. These are prices that often can not be advertised online or on a postcard or on social media.

Discount Pricing on Parts
While we do have some HOT BUY pricing specials on some specific parts (see reasons #3 through #6) ALL of our parts are 20% off on that day only. We will have landscape companies bring in a list of their highly used parts and purchase enough for the season or at least for several months. Any part you need… 20% off.
Edger Blades for 89 cents

Other competition have their specials on blades specify, “as low as, or From” but all of our mower blades are on sale for $9.99. Need a Blade that is normally $30 or $40… yeah, it’s on sale for $9.99. No Minimums!

Each of our stores will have representatives from our manufacturers on hand for you to ask questions, kick tires, help provide demo opportunities (Hey… if nothing else, ask them for free stuff.
