About our site
Let me give you a little history to explain why Fire Protection Online is so determined to save you lots of money.
Back in 1983, when I started in the fire extinguisher industry, service engineers (also known as "sales engineers") found that they could easily make lots of money by convincing customers to buy high-priced replacements on the spot without comparing prices. Sometimes, without there being any problem with the old extinguisher!
This has been a problem that the fire trade has tried to stamp out with its own, government-recognised British Approvals for Fire Equipment (BAFE) schemes that have raised the quality of the equipment, the companies and their service technicians. However, there has never been a consolidated effort to stamp out the industry-wide high prices.
Hmmm, I wonder why!
But, nowadays, there is no excuse. Amazon.com came along and showed what could be done to book prices. More people buy books now and the shops are still on the high streets. Tesco, love them or hate them, have revolutionised the way we buy groceries and nowadays, everything else for the home, with their online shopping. Online banking has brought more choice and better interest rates from newer banks.
We now only need to use Currys to see what an item looks like before finding the same thing at a much lower price online.
I don't know about you but I love to shop on the internet as, not only can I find the best prices without visiting every shop, but the modern companies that operate only online seem to put customer service high up their list.
So, that is why Fire Protection Online exists.
To bring unheard of customer service along with unheard of low prices but for the same high quality fire safety equipment.
No Mission Statements, no Customer Charters, no marketing speak. Just plain old guarantees that the world can see on every page (see them at the end of this page) that promise full, no-quibble refunds instead of excuses and low prices, always.
It's your money and you worked hard for it. If you give us the honour of spending it in our online store, we expect to work hard too and aim to be one of your favourite online suppliers; good enough so that you will hopefully recommend us to your friends and colleagues.
