Spring Bank Holiday Closure

You have got to love the month of May, just when you thought you could tip toe quietly into June, it throws out another long weekend for us all, much to the annoyance of the MD who is now trying to figure out how to use advanced quantum mechanics and temporal engineering and cram 5 days work into 4.

While he is doing that, we will be closed on Monday the 28th, what this means is orders received after 3pm on Friday 25th will not be processed until Tuesday 29th May when we will resume normal service again and if it is anything like the last bank holiday weekend, we had over 1500 orders requested during the 3 days we were closed, that receded the hair line by a few inches let me tell you.

Please remember that Royal Mail will not be delivering on the Monday 28th May nor will there be any collections that day either, so please factor in the extra day to your delivery schedules.

From all of us at Homecare Essentials that will get to enjoy the long weekend, have a good bank holiday.

New Parts For The Lawnmower? – Look No Further.

Does your garden look a bit like this?


or this?


Spring is here and it is time to give the jungle out there some much needed TLC but “oh no!” the drivebelt on the mower has perished, the strimmer spool is empty, the blade on the Flymo snapped.

At Homecare Essentials, we are mainly known for our home cleaning product range, what you may be unaware of, we also stock a huge range of ALM Replacement Lawnmower, Chainsaw, Strimmer and Drive belts.


ALM Manufacturing is a family owned company established in 1972, specialising in the manufacture consumable parts and accessories for all brands of trimmers, lawnmowers and chainsaws.

The ALM Guarantee
All of our products are quality controlled to the highest standard at every stage of the manufacturing process.

Replacement parts for mowers and strimmers can be hard to find and often require you to find a “specialist” shop as the sheer amount of different makes and models is staggering and often bewildering as the people talk in model numbers and part codes.

Well, don’t panic!

Click HERE and you will be taken to our Trimmer and Mower Spares product section, from there you can select which item you need, be it drive belts or strimmer spools or replacement blades. Each listing contains the make and model number the item can be used for.

Now you can’t use the excuse that the mower is broken to get out of mowing the lawn. Sorry.
