Big claim right? Not to worry – we can back it up 🙂
1. WE SELL 1.3G Fireworks
Epic Fireworks is the UK’s No.1 supplier of 1.3g fireworks.
What’re 1.3g fireworks? ANSWER: 1.3g fireworks are the most powerful fireworks that consumers aged 18 or over can legally buy in the UK. Typically, supermarkets and other firework shops sell 1.4g fireworks where they are limited to 5% powder. Our 1.3g fireworks are 5 times more powerful and contain up to 25% powder which is far superior in terms of performance. More information on 1.3g Vs 1.4g fireworks can be found here.
2. AWARD WINNING FIREWORKS
Over the last couple of years we have been reviewed in a number of national publications including FHM, Wired Magazine, theLADbible, the editor of the UK Fireworks Review, Front Magazine, Men’s Health Magazine, Sorted Magazine, the supplement ‘Live’ in the Mail on Sunday and recently our fireworks featured in EastEnders and Lana Del Rey’s music video ‘Blue Jeans’.
We buy our fireworks from the very very best firework factories in China and make over 5 trips a year to China to ensure the quality, consistency of product, compliance of British Standards and to make sure that production meets our exact standards.
3. THE BIGGEST RANGE OF FIREWORKS IN THE UK
We sell fireworks and nothing else. We stock the biggest and best range of fireworks in the UK from all the leading brands. With over 300 fireworks to choose from. You can view firework footage on our website of each and every firework so you know exactly what it does, how long it lasts, what colours, effects etc…
4. HALF PRICE FIREWORKS
All our fireworks are half price or less. How can we do this? ANSWER: We buy in bulk so you don’t have to. Every year we go through over 100 containers of fireworks from China and our buying power allows us to sell all our fireworks at half price or less. Simples.
5. OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK
We are open 7 days a week all year round. Many of our customers will travel over 300 miles to come and visit us and sometimes our customers can only visit on Saturday or Sunday due to family/work commitments. Being a family run business, we are very flexible – sometimes our customers turn up at 0600 in the morning or 2030 at night, if you are visiting very early or late, get in touch and we’ll make sure somebody is here to serve you.
6. CELEBRATING 25 YEARS IN BUSINESS (1987-2012)
“Great oaks from little acorns grow”. Jimmy the MD started selling fireworks back in 1987 out of a small 10 foot by 10-foot shipping container. Year on year the business grew, grew and grew. ‘Word of mouth’, ‘top quality products’ and ‘our half-price fireworks policy’ were the biggest contributors to the rapid growth and success.
7. THE BIGGEST FIREWORKS SHOP IN BRITAIN
25 years of hard work and we are now officially the biggest fireworks shop in Britain. Back in 2004 Jimmy bought and developed a multi-million-pound 5-acre site. The Health & Safety Executive granted Jimmy a 30-ton explosive licence – YES 30 tonnes of gunpowder can be stored on site to fulfil demand. We have the biggest bespoke fireworks showroom in the UK with free secure on-site parking for over 300 cars.
8. THE BEST IN CUSTOMER SERVICE – GOOD OLD FASHIONED YORKSHIRE HOSPITALITY
We started many years ago as a family business – and shall continue as such to ensure that our costs are kept to a minimum and personal service is retained.
9. FREE DELIVERY ANYWHERE IN THE UK
We have our own fleet of vehicles to deliver our fireworks all over the UK which gives us more control and ensures a first class delivery service. All our delivery drivers are ADR trained to carry explosives and we make over 6000 deliveries a year.
10. THE WORLDS MOST INTELLIGENT MAN
The World’s most intelligent man – Stephen Hawking – was a loyal epic fireworks customer. Professor Hawking was an astrophysicist at Cambridge University and became internationally acknowledged as one of the greatest and most intelligent men of our time.
As a child, he and his family used to make fireworks in their greenhouse. He continued throughout his life to hold onto his fascination with pyrotechnics and regularly ordered from Epic fireworks through the years for both his birthday and numerous other events including his Mars Party and his Bank Holiday bash at his holiday home. We were privileged to know him and his family and were highly honoured to be among the guests invited to his funeral.
If these 10 reasons don’t persuade you to buy from Epic Fireworks then goodness knows what will 🙂
Hope to see you all soon.
