"We started working with Dennis and his dad in 1974. We went to the Vermeer factory and asked for dealers since we were interested in buying a round baler. Our first piece of equipment was a 605C new round baler. Time went by and we bought another. . .over the years we’ve bought at least a dozen. There’s a lot of trust—service, and trust. He’s not going to sell a machine unless he’s confident in it, and the parts are there. He gives me answers and advice over the phone, he’s available when I need it.”
“We started working with them in 1958, we were a dealer, then a distributor, then a customer buying from them. Our first round baler was a 604XL and we traded it a year later. Over the years, they’ve been real honest people to work with. If there was a problem, and Dennis said it was my problem, I knew it was, if it was the equipment, he’d tell me that, too. I bought my first tractor at 12 and have done a lot of buying over the years, and NEVER met someone like these guys—I’ve never been put off with them. He’s fair, straight, never push, and tells it like it is."
“Awful good service, and awful good availability on parts—I don’t have to wait for parts new or used. Since my first baler in 1974, I can’t think of a time I didn’t get my hay baled because of their service and parts. One time he even loaned me a baler! If Dennis tells you something, that’s the way its going to be. I don’t even look anywhere else—I do shop around for other things—but I only go to Hammes Vermeer for balers.”
“I found Hammes Vermeer 7 years ago through a newspaper ad. I called Dennis and he came over and I traded balers—he gave me a fair price. Over the years he’s talked me through numerous things over the phone and offered to come over and do what he could to help. There was only one time he didn’t have the parts on hand, and it was because Vermeer had never replaced the part before, otherwise, he always has what I need. He’s second to none—and I’m not just saying that it’s a 30 mile trip for me and worth the drive."
