  • ICEGRIPPER Customer Story - Dancing on Ice

    One of the most rewarding things we do at ICEGRIPPER is talk with our customers about why they need our products and how they use them.

     

    These ‘Customer Stories’ are sometimes heart-warming, occasionally funny, but always enlightening. They reveal that our products are often used in ways we didn't expect them to be. Demonstrating inventiveness and the amazing way people think and work.

     

    We publish the best of them on our blog and website and hope you find them interesting. Here’s Dave's Customer Story…

      FlameOzFlameOz are the UK's premier fire act who have performed their award-winning brand of dynamic fire dance, acrobatics and circus skills in over 40 countries, with an unusual challenge. They were touring with a Mexican ice show. The challenge was to perform their amazing fire routines on ice! They needed an unobtrusive ice grip product, which whilst giving them the necessary grip on ice, allowed them to also perform dance routines - with fire!

    How did you come across ICEGRIPPER and our products? "FlameOz were asked by "Illusion on Ice" a touring Mexican ice skating spectacular to perform a bespoke choreography on the ice rink. Clearly this  presented a particular technical challenge - performing fast paced synchronised dance-style choreography on a surface created for maximum slide! After an online search, I contacted ICEGRIPPER to discuss options available from their extensive catalogue".

    What product did you choose and how did you apply or use the chosen product? "ICEGRIPPER looked like the right retailer for us. The website was clearly laid out with loads of information. I could tell that a conversation with Carl would be fruitful and I wasn't wrong!".

    What benefit did it provide to the situation? "Carl recommended ICESPIKE as it was flexible (we could apply it where we needed), robust (it is!) and easy to fit to a range of sizes (small girls and big guys). The ICESPIKE were super easy to apply - just screw them into the sole of the shoe. When we needed to make changes in the configuration there was no immediately visible damage to the sole of ICESPIKE by ICEGRIPPER the shoe (a teeny screw hole/mark). Over a run of 60+ shows, 7 days per week for 4 solid weeks we had a total of only two ICESPIKE's come out of the shoes. Not a bad failure rate at all bearing in mind we are pirouetting, twisting, running, turning etc".

    "I can't comment on their use for running, but WE found them to be an excellent product in a very demanding ice dance environment. The feedback from the team in Mexico is fantastic – we will be ordering more ICESPIKE’s from ICEGRIPPER, thanks Carl!"

  • ICEGRIPPER Customer Story - Golf Wellies

    One of the most rewarding things we do at ICEGRIPPER is talk with our customers about why they need our products and how they use them.

     

    These ‘Customer Stories’ are sometimes heart-warming, occasionally funny, but always enlightening. They reveal that our products are often used in ways we didn't expect them to be. Demonstrating inventiveness and the amazing way people think and work.

     

    We publish the best of them on our blog and website and hope you find them interesting. Here’s Chris’ Customer Story…

     

    Chris, Hemel Hempstead, Feb 2017

    What was the problem you were trying to solve? "I’m a winter golfer and unlike the sunny images you see on TV of the Masters being played in exotic locations, we play in the rain and mud! For some years, I’ve been trying to buy a pair of Golf Wellies - Wellies with spikes, or studs, but nothing existed. The nearest thing was safety boots."

    ICESPIKE by ICEGRIPPER

    How did you come across ICEGRIPPER and our products? "Recently I searched on Google and got a link to ICEGRIPPER and thought there were some products I might be able to use."

    What product did you choose and how did you apply or use the chosen product? "I thought it would be worth trying the ICESPIKE. So, I ordered them and fitted them in to my own Wellies."

    What benefit did it provide to the situation? "Fantastic! Since fitting ICESPIKE to my wellies I’ve played golf in slushy deep mud and packed ice with a firm grip at all times. No slipping, dry feet and clean trousers at the end! ICESPIKE from ICEGRIPPER has provided a cost effective, long term solution and highly recommended. I’ve ordered another set to put into my comfortable trainers for summer golfing. Best wishes and thanks for a great product, Chris."

    Chris has received a free set of ICESPIKE for sharing his wonderful story. Have you got a ‘Customer Story’, you’d like to share with us?

  • ICEGRIPPER in the Movies

    ICEGRIPPER in the Movies

    When you start a business you never know where it will take you? In ICEGRIPPER's case it's taken us into the movies and onto TV!

    We've always had a pretty diverse customer base - ranging from the elderly who buy our ice grips to provide underfoot security in winter, through to anglers, who use our ice grips to prevent slipping on slimy slipways and river banks whilst fishing. But over the years we've conducted an increasing amount of business with film and TV production companies.

    It's not unusual for filming to take place in cold weather locations and the pressures of time and the cost of lots of crew and equipment mean they often want good underfoot traction, so they can work quickly and safely. ICEGRIPPER have provided ice grip traction products to a number of film and TV productions:

    The Jump 2016 ICEGRIPPER supplies ice grips to the production

    THE JUMP We provided ice grips for Two Four, the production company behind Channel 4's The Jump. The series that followed celebrities as they tried to master various winter sports including ski jump, skeleton, bobsleigh, snowskates, ski cross and giant slalom. Presented by Davina McCall, the third series saw Ben Cohen, former England rugby unionplayer winning. ICEGRIPPER suggested a variety of ice grip products for the differing requirements of the camera crew, trainers, presenters and participants. Because we have stock available all year round we could quickly service their requirements for filming in the Austrian Alps.

    Huntsman Winters War - ICEGRIPPER supplies ice grips for the production

    THE HUNTSMAN WINTER's WAR A serious A-list cast assembled in the UK to shoot 'The Huntsman', the prequel to the 2012 feature Snow White and the Huntsman, with the main leads Chris Hemsworth and Charlize Theron back on board. ICEGRIPPER supplied ice grips to the production company - whether they ever saw the bottom of Charlize Therons boots we cannot say!

    Dancing on Ice - ICEGRIPPER supplies ice grips for the production

    DANCING ON ICE Remember this one? Dancing on Ice, the TV show presented by Phillip Schofield and Christine Bleakley, in which celebrities and their professional partners figure skate in front of a panel of judges. It ran for 9 series, but after Torvill and Dean announced that they would leave the show it folded in 2014. We supplied ITV staff with several orders of ice grips.

    FlameOz - ICEGRIPPER supplies ice grips for the production

    FlameOz Although not strictly TV or movies, this problem was still a showbiz one! FlameOz, the UK's premier fire act who have performed their award-winning brand of dynamic fire dance, acrobatics and circus skills in over 40 countries, approached ICEGRIPPER with an unusual challenge. They were touring with a Mexican ice show. The challenge was to perform their amazing fire routines on ice! They needed an unobtrusive ice grip product, which whilst giving them the necessary grip on ice, allowed them to also perform dance routines - with fire! Needless to say we rose to the challenge and provided them with the perfect product.

  • ICEGRIPPER Postage Options - Fast UK Delivery

    When customers make the decision to order products from an on-line retailer, the last thing they want, is to be waiting ages for their products to arrive. ICEGRIPPER offers FAST UK delivery on all its products.

    We set ourselves a target of being able to offer delivery comparable to large market leading companies because we were aware our products are often needed for well being and safety. It's quite difficult for most small companies to compete with larger, better resourced companies, but at ICEGRIPPER we set out to design our business to offer order processing, packing and delivery times, as good as the top performing on-line retailers.

    Postman delivering ICEGRIPPER products

    ICEGRIPPER offers 3 classes of delivery, providing excellent value for money. Giving our customers a choice of speed, related to budget and linked to the importance of their order. All our delivery options are FLAT FEE - you only pay for the delivery of the order, whether you order one product or ten products. Here are our current delivery options:

     

    ‘Standard’ - Royal Mail RM 48 RM 48 is a simple cost effective service benefiting from improved delivery times. Although not guaranteed, RM 48 offers a very good delivery time for a 'standard' postal service. With over 90% delivery within the 48 hour service standard (following dispatch). Many of our customers like this service because it does not require a signature. Anything which cannot be fitted through a letterbox can be collected from your local Royal Mail sorting office, via a ‘Red Card’, which will be left informing you of attempted delivery. If you have a regular postman you can often leave an instruction for your order to be left inside a porchway, or with a neighbour. The downside to this service is that it is 'best effort' and untracked. Claims for non delivery will be subject to the Royal Mail Compensation Claim scheme. Claims cannot be made until after 15 working days of non delivery. What's good about this service?

    • Cost effective
    • 90% delivered within 48 hours of dispatch
    • No signature required
    • Can collect from Royal Mails extensive sorting office and local depot network


    ‘Enhanced’ – Royal Mail RM 24 Tracked 1st class postage - with additional tracking. Your order is scanned as it leaves ICEGRIPPER’s depot and then again at several points through the delivery system. Finally it is scanned as it is delivered through the letterbox. Customers do not need to sign for delivery if it can be posted through your letterbox, or you are at home to accept delivery. If no-one is at home a ‘red card’ will notify attempted delivery. You can then elect to have your order re-delivered or collect it from your Royal Mail sorting office or depot. If your order is of a higher value, important to you, a Christmas or other special occasion gift, this service is recommended. Non delivery claims are minimal and easier to rectify because of the traceability. This service ensures more 1st time deliveries, greater convenience and improved customer satisfaction. What's good about this service?

    • Scanned as it leaves ICEGRIPPER depot
    • Scanned as delivered
    • No signature required
    • 90% delivered within 24 hours of dispatch
    • Can collect from Royal Mails extensive sorting office and local depot network
    • Order can be tracked via Royal Mail's tracking site: https://www.royalmail.com/track-your-item


    ‘Priority’ – FedEx or Royal Mail Next Day These services do what they say on the tin! Provided your order is placed with ICEGRIPPER before 12.00 noon (mon-thu) it will be processed and delivered next day between 09.00-17.30 Orders placed after 12.00 noon will be delivered the day after (please do not use this service after 12.00 noon Friday through to Sunday evening as your order cannot be delivered until Tuesday). FedEx have one of the best delivery records in the courier market and were voted a UK Business Superbrand in 2013. Whilst Royal Mail is tried and tested and relied upon by millions of customers every day. The services require a customer signature. If you are out, a FedEx or Royal Mail card will notify attempted delivery. Orders can be collected from one of FedEx’s depots, or Royal Mails sorting centres. Your order is tracked end to end and can be monitored in progress. This service is ideal for larger product items and more valuable orders. Or for items which you require urgently and need re-assurance about their arrival. What's good about this service?

    • Priority service, delivered next day after placing order
    • Order scanned as it leaves ICEGRIPPER depot and tracked end to end
    • Signature required, timed and recorded as proof of delivery
    • Predictable and secure delivery method


    In addition to these postage options we offer delivery to Argos stores through our EBay listings. This is a great service for customers in larger towns, where they might leave the house early in the morning, but can access the town centre at lunchtime or on their way home to collect their order from their local Argos store.

    We are also working with Royal Mail to introduce Royal Mail Local Collect®. This service will offer our customers a new ‘Click & Collect’ option. Simply select your most convenient Post Office® branch when placing your order to enjoy collection from over 10,500 Post Office® branches, with many offering extended opening hours in the evening and on weekends, including Sundays.

    So when the snow starts falling, or the weatherman forecasts icy weather, there should be only one place to come for your ice grips, ice cleats, boots and 400 other traction and winter products..... Walk, work, run and play on winter ice and snow with ICEGRIPPER
