GO COMPARE – EPIC FIREWORKS Vs TESCO

Every year we get asked, “why visit your company when my local supermarket does fireworks as well?”  As a specialist company, licenced to sell all year round. We have a MASSIVE range of over 300 fireworks, offering much greater variety, whereas your local supermarket will probably have a limited selection of small fireworks mostly rated at 1.4G, meaning the fireworks can contain no more than 5% flash powder, ours can contain up to 25% flash powder.

As we have our fireworks custom made in China to our exacting specifications (the “Epic Brand”, is known worldwide as being producers of one of the top ten best blogs in the world), we specialise in the larger cakes, which are particularly suitable for Pubs, Clubs, Scout groups, Hotels and family gatherings for those with 25 metres safety distance but we do also supply the smaller Selection boxes, Rockets, Roman Candles, Sparklers, Catherine wheels, and fountains, all the usual fireworks we all know and love as for most of us our first experience would have been a small bag garden display with limited space of 5-8 metres.

One or two companies will ask you to place your order, then advise what time and date the van with your fireworks order will be there at the store as they have limited storage capacity, their fireworks being stored off-site. This does not pose a problem for us as we have an underground storage facility that is the size of Old Trafford, fully stocked all year round. Buying in bulk gives us bigger discounts when placing our yearly order, which in turn means that we are in a position to pass our reductions on to you, the customer.

At this time of year, we will sell huge amounts of fireworks every day and our customer database contains names of our valued customers, many of whom have been visiting us for over 20 years and in this industry, you must be doing it right to be around 20 years later.

HAPPY DAYS @EpicFireworks

Anyone who has ever visited us will be aware of “The Epic experience” as we pride ourselves in customer service not only do we have over thirty-five very friendly staff, most of which are fully trained fireworks display firers, we have full facilities on site being one of the only custom-built fireworks shops in the UK we can accommodate wheelchairs and offer a disabled toilet and baby changing facility’s, tea and coffee for those who arrive parched after a long trip, we will look after you from start to finish.

Just 2 minutes from junction 36 of the M1 right in the centre of the UK we are easy to get to.

After we have discussed your needs, given hints and tips, we will pick you order from our 14 40 foot containers, load your vehicle for you and offer free stock for collecting rather than paying the specialist courier we have to use by law, if you are really lucky you might also get a pork pie for the journey home.

DIY CONSUMER DISPLAY PACKS COMPARISON

As the 2019 Bonfire Night season gets underway, we compare our three best selling DIY consumer display packs which are all the same price and meet different needs.

All our DIY Consumer Display packs are created with the customer in mind. In the £295.00 bracket, we have three packs which pretty much cover all bases. We spend time in China designing, selecting and firing several products before they meet our exacting standards.

CONSPIRACY

51 FIREWORKS (14 BARRAGES (CAKES) AND 37 ASSORTED ROCKETS – RUN TIME 7 MINUTES PLUS ADDITIONAL FOR ROCKETS

This is our number 1 best selling firework pack which this year contains a selection of barrages, big a small with rockets that can be fired intermittently throughout the display.  Primarily, this pack is intended for a small/medium sized crowd and contains everything you need for a first-class display filling the sky with a multitude of effects and colours.

Our Conspiracy Pack is widely used at events including scout groups and community events where a small gathering is expected.  It does contain loud whistles and screeches along with other sonic and sky filling effects and sounds. This pack contains one of our biggest sellers which has stood the test of time; Thunderous Finale.

BLACK POWDER

82 FIREWORKS (22 BARRAGES (CAKES) AND 60 ASSORTED ROCKETS – RUN TIME 12 MINUTES (IF FIRING EACH ITEM INDIVIDUALLY) PLUS ADDITIONAL FOR ROCKETS

This pack was created with younger children in mind and contains a larger number of smaller but equally impressive little barrages (cakes) along with a huge range of rockets. If all the items are fired individually, this will give you a 12-minute display whereas if they are fired in pairs (where appropriate) it will be a little over 7 minutes.  The pack also contains one of the most popular little barrages in our range; Humming Hornets.

AFTER MIDNIGHT

10 FIREWORKS – ALL BARRAGES (CAKES) – RUN TIME 6 MINUTES

The last of the £295.00 packs is the elegant After Midnight which contains only large barrages (cakes). The pack is aimed at those wanting a high impact high noise display and certainly ticks all the boxes. This pack also boasts the fabulously loud Screaming Spiders.

So, there you have them – check them all out on our website which also has videos with every item in stock so you can view before you buy. Unfortunately, these packs cannot be changed or amended but if you are able to get over to see us in Tankersley, you also get several free products for collecting in person.
