What our clients say about us…

“On December 10th around 10:00 pm, I received a call from a local contractor asking if the City of Clinton could help out with a sewer problem in a neighboring community. They explained that the community had a sewer back up and the contractor was unable to clear it with their combo truck. I called the Public Works Director of the community to offer our assistance.  He explained to me that this line had been plugged since 4:30 pm and subzero temperatures that day were not helping. They made several attempts with a jet trailer, but eventually blew a hose. After the hose blew, they called a local contractor that does industrial level cleaning to help out. This contractor was also unable to clear the line, so they finally called me asking for help. I sent our guy out to help.  He took the new Harben Jetter truck we just purchased from Elliott Equipment Company and he had the line cleared within 45 minutes! The operator said it only took two passes to clear the line.

Some of the issues that the other town had was due to the Extreme temperatures that day.  The big advantage we had is with having the 4000 PSI Harben and its ability to work through the plugged line before experiencing issues with cold weather!”

“Temps Disposal was founded in 1952.  With 65 years of experience and 3 generations we know service.  In this business, we need all of our equipment to be dependable and safe every single day.  We can rely on Elliott Equipment to have the service expertise and parts on hand to keep our trucks us up and running year round.  This is the reason we have been working with Jeff at Elliott Equipment for almost 25 years.”

Shelby – Temps Disposal

“Just wanted to take this time to say how pleased we are with the service and quality of the products we have purchased from Elliott Equipment Company.  Elliott has taken very good care of us and is always there if we need anything.  Your company makes sure to follow up on any issues we may be having and works hard to get them resolved promptly. Recently I came up with the idea to build a flusher truck with a portable camera unit, and your company worked with the manufacturer and myself to design and build the truck.  After working out some design issues and making some changes to the first truck, we ordered four more trucks!  Elliott is currently working hand and hand with me and the manufacturer to make sure that they are the best and most operator-friendly trucks, not only for us, but others that may want to purchase that same kind of set up.”

“If you are looking for a company to do business with and build a relationship with, then look no further than Elliott Equipment Company.  I cannot say enough about how the shop in Grimes has stood with us these past two months.  From the guys out in the shop, Shawn, Barry and Mike, who have always taken time to discuss our problems and help us rectify them.  To my salesman, Corey, who has sometimes received several calls a day from me – and always taken the time to answer questions, explain what’s going on or just listen to my concerns.  All the way to the top, to Mr. Gene Elliott.  It’s difficult in today’s world to find a business owner that will stand behind the customer and not only say ‘we should take care of our customers’, but actually take action and do it.  We recently have had some trouble with a truck we purchased from Elliott Equipment.  They not only stood behind the product they sold, but took excellent care of us every step of the way and kept us up to date with progress reports.  I cannot thank them enough for being a standup company.  They definitely have a customer for life!  Thank you again!!!”

Elliott offers a variety of different products  and has a large inventory of parts that minimize down time. We will continue to use Elliott Equipment for our equipment needs for another 30 years.”

Aaron Vander Meiden – Midwest Sanitation

We have worked with Elliott Equipment for many years and generally purchase one or two new refuse trucks annually from Elliott.  We appreciate the integrity and commitment that Jeff K. and his staff provide.  The crew from Elliott Equipment is extremely knowledgeable and listens to the customer’s needs.  The responsive and sincere customer service is greatly appreciated.”

Steve Hart – Kearney, Nebraska

“I was very impressed with the help I received on 10/5/2016. Shawn and Mike were very helpful when it came to finding and solving the problem on our RST equipment. They show what customer service is, and know how important that is. I hope Elliott equipment knows how lucky they are to have them as employees. They are few and far to find, and hope they get the recognition they deserve.”
