Halfords Figures Reveal The True Cost Of Bike Theft In The UK

Bike thefts could be costing British cyclists more than £80 million a year, new figures from Halfords reveal.*

According to police crime statistics, a total of 115,147 bikes were reported stolen in the UK last year. But the actual figure is much higher, according to the British Crime Survey, due to a high proportion of thefts that are unreported.

It estimates the true number is nearer 533,000, the equivalent of a bike going missing every minute, and means almost 80% of owners are failing to report thefts. National figures** show reported bike crime is up 4% and unreported up 12%.

The full extent of the problem has been revealed by cycle and leisure retailer Halfords, who obtained the latest theft figures from each UK police force and collated them to reveal a disturbing nationwide picture.

The growth in bike thefts has come as the country experiences a resurgence in bicycle use, with 12% of adults regular cycle users and bike sales exceeding £2.1 billion last year. Six per cent of bikes purchased are worth over £1000.

In terms of regional variations, not surprisingly the problem of stolen bikes is worst in London with 21,315 instances reported to the Met in 2010 with Westminster having the highest rate of theft (1,898).

Thames Valley had the second highest rate with 6,060 instances reported in 2010. This was followed by Greater Manchester (5,185) and Cambridgeshire (4,477). Thames Valley and Cambridgeshire contain university cities of Oxford and Cambridge which account for much of the crime in those areas.

Fife has the best record for bike theft, the east coast area in Scotland only reporting 78 thefts in the past year, despite it including the student town of St Andrews where there is high bike ownership. There were 24 times more thefts in Westminster than in the whole of Fife.

The worst area in Scotland was Strathclyde, which includes Glasgow. It recorded 2081 thefts, followed closely by Lothian and Border with 2026.

Over two thirds of bike theft occurs in or around a victim’s home and research shows that while most cyclists lock their bikes when leaving them on the street, they are often unlocked when stored at a residence.*** The high number of unreported theft is put down to the belief that police will not catch the offender and that many bikes on the road are second hand.

Halfords cycling expert Paul Tomlinson said: “The scale of the bike theft is quite staggering and it can be devastating when you have bought your dream bike only to have it stolen.

“It demonstrates the need for cyclists to take precautions. We recommend bolt-cutter proof locks, because heavy-duty locks are a much better deterrent, and bike marking for all cycles.

“All Halfords locks are independently tested and rated Bronze, Silver or Gold depending on the length of time it would take a thief to break the lock and what level of equipment they would need.

“Our in-store experts are on hand to advise you on the best way to keep your cycle safe, such as purchasing the most appropriate heavy duty lock for your bike and investing in a bike tagging kit, so that it can be identified if it is ever stolen and recovered by police.”

After revealing the price of cycle theft, Halfords is calling for a unified approach to tackling the crime.

Paul Tomlinson added: “It is clear that this is a nationwide problem and many initiatives are left to local forces. We urge customers to keep their bikes secure but we would like to see more co-ordination in tackling thefts once they have occurred.”

The Police say one of the biggest problems is not recovering bikes, but finding out who owns them and they urge cyclists to take three simple steps to help reduce crime.

1) Record the details of the bike by getting it marked.
2) Register on one of the number of websites where details can be left3) Report if your bike is stolen.

Qssupplies.co.uk Helps Home Owners Avoid Purchasing Wrong Shower Enclosure

Many Home owners in UK end up in buying wrong shower enclosure for their bathroom. There are some common problems that home owners usually make at the time of purchasing a shower enclosure; the leading bathroom supplier in UK has put together solution on how to deal with those problems.

Avoiding these common mistakes can help home owners having a fabulous shower enclosure in their bathroom that will last for years. Here are Top Ten Tips for buying a shower enclosure.

1. Glass Thickness – You need to ensure the thickness of glass. A shower enclosure must have 4mm or above toughened glass.

2. Smooth Running Wheels – Doors of shower quadrant and enclosure come in use on a regular basis. You must ensure a shower enclosure have smooth gliding doors, so that’s easy to open and close.

3. Offset Shower Enclosure – If you are selecting offset shower enclosure, it’s very important to select the proper orientation of shower tray, according to your bathroom. Offset shower trays comes in left or right handed option. Depending on installation of your enclosure you need to select right or left hand offset shower tray. Many home owners end up buying wrong orientation trays, and then they have to rush to their supplier.

4. Right Size – Selecting the right size shower enclosure is extremely important. A shower enclosure must be spacious and comfortable. Before buying an enclosure, you need to sit and stand in it and make sure none of your body part touches the glass. If you are having a large bathroom, going for a walk in shower enclosure or walk in panel would be an ideal choice. And for smaller bathrooms, selecting a quadrant or pivot recessed shower doors can be an ideal choice. But at the time of selection you must ensure that the cubicle is not too compact and uncomfortable. If you have a large body person in your family, a 900mm quadrant or cubicle would be an ideal choice and spacious, while as 800mm and 760mm would be too small and uncomfortable.

5. Guarantee – Ensure that the shower enclosure is guaranteed on its finish and parts. There are many home owners who have ended up buying cheap imports, that does not carry any guarantee and it’s very difficult for them to get its parts replaced.

6. Design – Selecting the right design can create an impact in your bathroom. A well designed shower enclosure creates stunning bathroom space and offers the ultimate blend of sophisticated design and timeless functionality. A well designed shower enclosure will look new for years and gives a fresh look.

7. Knowledge – Going through magazines can help you select the right design that’s in trend. Alternative you can even visit bathroom design websites where you can come across many images of well decorated bathrooms.

8. Don’t Like – if you don’t like it don’t buy it. Many Home owners compromise on design, quality and functionality just for price. But our advice is don’t compromise, there are variety of shower enclosure available in market from reputed brand that are offered at low price. You just need to keep your eyes open and check for special offers.

9. Brand – Brand awareness is very important. Many home-owners have already repented buying cheap imports from China. Buying from a local brand is always recommended. As after sales service is always good and enclosures last long and are well designed. Even getting parts replacement is easier with local brand and with imports it’s next to impossible.

10. Visit to a Showroom – Visiting a nearby bathroom showroom can actually help you to look and feel the enclosure itself. Don’t be ashamed; get in and out of an enclosure. Try opening the shower doors and closing it to double check the gliding’s and roller quality.

A New Breed of Wheely Cool Sees a Rise in BMX

Following in the tracks of ‘middle aged men in Lycra’ (Mamil), trick obsessed BMXers are set to become the next driving force behind the UK’s continued love affair with two wheels.

Data shows sales of BMX have grown more than any other cycling category this year. BMX now accounts for 16% of the total cycle market and looks set to overhaul traditional City bikes, currently 17%.

Retailer Halfords said demand is being driven by freewheeling youngsters looking for cycles with more edgy designs and better styling, from X-Rated to Apollo to the top-end, cool looking, US designed VooDoo range.

Widely available YouTube videos showing amazing bike tricks and the spread of a BMXers language through social networks has helped to drive the revival in BMX. They are becoming a fashion and lifestyle choice of cycles for both boys and girls alike.

The BMX almost disappeared during the 1990s but now analysts GFK say figures show that one in five bike sales are BMX and 94% of BMX’s sold in Great Britain are purchased by 6-15 year olds. There’s also a trend to customise BMX bikes. Halfords says the sales of accessories like skull and dice decorated valve caps and special stunt pegs have risen, along with skater helmets and fingerless mitts.

The growing popularity of BMX has developed against a backdrop of the rise of the ‘Mamils’, who have been at the forefront of the popularity of cycling in recent years and have driven the ownership of cycles in the UK to top over 4 million.

Now Dads in their thirties who remember the fun they had on BMX bikes are encouraging the revival, according to analysts Allegra Strategies in its Project Velo report on the cycle industry.

Halfords BMX expert Peter Hunt said: “BMX is becoming mainstream once again. It was always there with the cult pros but has filtered down to a new generation. GFK reported 1 in 5 kids are choosing fashion over form, with a BMX and our sales trends support this. BMX is already well established with boys, but we are now noticing a marked increase from girls too.

“We stock an extensive range of models to ensure our customers can find their perfect bike. Our VooDoo range is particularly exciting, offering cutting edge premium bikes at great prices.

Industry Cycling magazine BikeBiz said the popularity of BMX products were now exceeding peaks seen in the 1980s when speciality bikes became all the rage among youngsters.

Success of UK riders such as BMX World Champion woman rider Shanaze Reade has done much to boost the sport’s popularity and new facilities for BMX riders are emerging all the time to cope with renewed demand for specialist facilities.

Stephen Rooke, Director of Redditch Skatepark and BMX Track, the largest outdoor supervised charity skatepark in the UK, said: We are seeing whole families taking part in racing and involved in the club. BMX has grown to become the dominant discipline at our venue.

“BMX riding is a way of life to many young people, where they gain amazing riding skills and develop a high level of fitness, agility and strength by doing something they enjoy. It is a great way to tackle youth boredom that has been linked to antisocial behaviour.”

Construction is shortly to begin on a 43-hectare ‘Cyclopark’ facility in Kent, where world-class facilities will include a 340 metre dedicated BMX circuit.

The Olympics and construction of London’s new cycling Velodrome and BMX track will further drive the popularity of the BMX, with 2012 Olympic cycling events including a BMX discipline after it was Introduced in Beijing 2008.

The Group is the UK’s leading retailer of automotive, leisure and cycling products and through Nationwide Autocentres is also the UK’s leading independent car servicing and repair operator.

UK POS to Share the Love this Valentine’s Day

UK POS, the market leader in the point of sale industry, has announced it will be keeping prices low in time for Valentine’s Day, despite this month’s VAT increase and soaring acrylic costs.

On January 4, the government increased VAT by 2.5 per cent to 20 per cent, while acrylic costs have also risen for the eleventh consecutive month. The price of acrylic rose by 40 per cent rise in the first six months of 2010 alone. UK POS uses 300 tonnes of the material every year to make its range of products such as Menu Holders and leaflet holders

As usual, demand is expected to peak in the run up to Valentine’s day as retailers look to increase brand and product awareness through point of sale advertising. And in an effort to support its customers, UK POS has looked at alternatives to raising prices, such as rationalising product lines and streamlining internal processes to avoid waste. Bulk buying and forward planning have also helped lower costs and stopped the company from having to pass on significant price increases to customers. UK POS has now pledged to continue in this vein throughout 2011.

Jason Leslie, managing director of UK POS, said Valentine’s Day, on February 14, is the next major date for the retail industry following the January sales, and the company will be ensuring customers have access to the highest quality point of sale items like Leaflet dispenser and Poster holder at competitive prices.

He said: “Acrylic prices have been at an all time low for the last five to six years, so the price increases during 2010 certainly came as a shock.

“UK POS is a family run business and has very traditional values at its core. There was never any doubt that we would do all we could to avoid passing any kind of inflation on to our customers. All departments of the business have pulled together to manage margins and this has enabled us to keep prices at a competitive level.” UKPOS will continue to make savings in order to offset rising costs throughout 2011 in order to keep prices low.

UK Point of Sale, the UK’s leading supplier of many point of sale accessories and retail supplies has urged businesses to get their orders in before the Christmas cut off date to make sure they are fully prepared for the January sales!

Whilst many shoppers are rushing round trying to get the last of their festive shopping completed many retailers will be anticipating one of the most busy times of year for the industry – the January sales – and to help maintain some sort of order during this hectic time of year UK POS have urged owners and store managers to stock up on the vital point of sale accessories they’ll need from Window Displays to Snap Frames.

UK POS provides all of these and many more to help make sure businesses are able to enhance their customers’ shopping experience with clearly labelled sections and easy to read offers and shop displays to boost sales.

UK POS’ last day for orders before Christmas is the 22nd of December; all other orders made after this date over the festive period will only be processed on the 4th of January 2011 which may be too late for some businesses. The good news though is that all orders made on the 22nd will be delivered the very next day (the 23rd of December) allowing retailers to be armed and ready for the sales crowds.

Debra Jamieson of UK POS urged businesses to act now, saying, “With the January sales being the perfect way to start the new year for a lot of retailers it is important that they are able to clearly display promotional items and mark sections of their shop out to the crowds”

“When it comes to shopper satisfaction, having a strong point of sale presence whether this be pavement signs to draw customers in or PVC ticket holders showing prices clearly, it all creates a better experience for the customer”.

For many workers, it is the time of the year when important changes are made to the way jobs are done; how they are done, when they are done, and what they were to get the job done.

HSS Hire, the award winning tool and equipment hire company, are on hand to businesses as well as the self-employed to help with the transition.

The numerous changes which will have to be implemented can be largely narrowed down into two main categories; lighting and power, and thankfully the HSS range of lighting and power equipment includes everything needed to make the change as smooth as possible. A reliable a source of lighting and power is essential for almost any work or industrial environment, and during the colder winter months, this need is intensified.

As the days become darker, earlier, HSS can be on hand to make sure poor lighting and visibility is no longer a hindrance to your busy work schedule. With a dedicated guide aimed at answering all your lighting requirements for winter, HSS has the ability to provide each element required to organise, network and run your lights which remains unrivalled within the hire industry.

HSS can provide the complete lighting package, helping plan your site requirements as well as deliver the items straight to you. Jamie Rice, Category Manager at HSS, says the revamped range is the brand’s most complete yet, saying; “We offer guides on lighting regulations, an interactive lighting demonstration in addition to our extensive lighting range. The collection is comprehensive enough to cover both construction site and public events needs such as concerts and firework displays.”

“In short, HSS can provide the total package to cater for your lighting and power needs.”

HSS can complete your tailored lighting and power needs this winter by supplying from our full range of generators. Products from the range can provide power to run small portable link lighting and also larger generators that can power the largest of event sites. HSS can deliver all the add-ons to get you up and running too, including fuel to power the generators, connection cables to link lights, junction boxed to network lighting systems and traffic ramps to cover cables running over paths.

HSS Hire is also currently running a fantastic heater hire promotion where you can stay warmer for longer, with 4 weeks heater hire for the price of 2 weeks. The offer is available for a limited period this winter, where great savings of 50% can be made

HSS Hire is a UK-based tool and equipment heater hire that has been serving big businesses, trade and DIY customers since 1957.

The ease-of-use and customisable nature of HSS LiveHire provides a personalised and tailored management system, with a live dashboard which keeps users up to speed with live contracts, outstanding invoices, as well as any items which may need to be offhired on a given day.

HSS LiveHire allows for separate user accounts to be installed, with differing levels of access if required. All products include an image and a comprehensive product specification, as well as a downloadable operation and safety guide.

UK POS Prepares Retailers For An Explosive Halloween

Last year’s retail figures suggest that Halloween is fast becoming the UK’s most favourable Autumn event, overtaking Guy Fawkes Night, with more and more Britons adopting the American way and hosting parties to celebrate. Here, UK POS lends its advice on how Halloween preparations can set retailers in good stead for the much-anticipated Halloween rush.

Consumers have become accustomed to dedicated seasonal aisles in stores and, with Halloween parties and half-term shopping contributing to a 10.7% rise in sales at clothing and footwear stores last year, retailers recorded the biggest year-on-year rise since May 2008*. Retail sales from 2009 also confirm that October last year was 3.4% ahead of the October 2008.

To make sure your Halloween promotions aren’t over looked, UK POS has recommended its most popular Halloween products; the ‘Wobbler for Data Strips’ is made of clear PVC and securely fits into shelf edge data strips, and perfect for those Halloween sweets, are the ‘Hang Strip’ or easy to assemble ‘Impulse Bin’. ‘Pavement Signs’ are ideal for promoting outside of shop hours and getting customers off the street and into the store.

Debra Jamieson, Sales and Marketing Director of UK POS, comments:
“Choosing products that emphasise special displays and indicate to shoppers where a particular product is, are essential. High street retailers and supermarkets increasingly have to compete with online retailers but have the upper hand in terms of visual impact and the opportunity to cross-sell, either on the aisles or at the tills. Halloween is a time where retailers can be more creative with their POS and choose more playful and creative options to encourage their customers to enjoy the occasion but they need to start thinking about this well ahead of the Halloween rush.”

UK POS has been manufacturing point of sale products for over 20 years and is continually adapting to changing market trends when it comes to working with retailers to market their offers. Best selling products include banner stands and snap frames.

MeMega Announces Range Of New Special Offers During Ramadan

MeMega, a technology specialist based in Saudi Arabia, is launching a range of special offers during Ramadan to encourage families to spend more time together during the religious festival.

The new special offers which MeMega are making available include a number of discounts on the latest technology to keep families entertained and engaged this Ramadan.

Ramadan, which this year runs until 9th September, generally sees Muslim families spending a lot more time in their homes as they look to enrich their soul through sacrifice, self-discipline and through fellowship with their families, friends and the surrounding community. This time is often spent with loved ones who have a similar goal and MeMega hopes that its offers on items such as cameras and DVD players will help to enhance the time spent together by many families during this period.

John Hinde, operations director at MeMega, said: “MeMega understands that Saudi families spend a large amount of time indoors together during Ramadan, which is why we’re offering this amazing range of electrical and home entertainment products that families can enjoy together.”

As well as discounts on many of its ranges, MeMega has special opening times for its showroom in Jeddah during Ramadan. The store will be open from 10am to 1pm and then again at 9pm until 2am to allow families to visit after they have broken their fast at Iftah. Traditionally this is a busy period in Saudi shops during Ramadan.

While the showroom, like many other shops and markets, will close down during evening prayers and the Iftar meal, but then re-open for much of the night, the MeMega website will remain fully operational throughout the period allowing customers to make purchases of laptops and other electronic equipment at their leisure.

About MeMega:
MeMega.com is Saudi Arabia’s leading specialist electrical and technology retailer providing the latest technology products, such as gaming laptops and home entertainment systems, to customers in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

UK POS Helps Retailers Shine In The Classroom

As figures have been released showing that parents pay out up to £201, 809 a year raising each child, and up to£37 a month on school uniforms*, UK POS is launching a campaign to help retailers strengthen their focus on their target audience through visual display holders and point of sale solutions as back to school is once again on the agenda.

No longer is there one local shop supplying uniforms to the surrounding schools. The age of the mass market is well and truly underway, with big name retailers stocking box pleat skirts, pale blue shirts and knee length charcoal grey socks which means there is even more reason to fight to stand out from the crowd with back to school offers.

The back to school market has changed dramatically over the last decade, with retailers now offering whole uniform sets for under £10. It is for this reason that UK POS is fighting to help the high street market their merchandise.

UK POS’ Sales & Marketing Director, Debra Jamieson, said: “We’ve noticed a shift in terms of customer buying patterns, especially over the last few years. Retailers are opting for more flexible solutions where they can update and change their offers regularly. We’re finding our Acrylic Freestanding leaflet Holders to be a really popular product at the minute. They sit on the head of a gondola with the image of the offer on display. Offers need to be visual in today’s competitive market place – the increase in sales of our poster holders support this.”

UK POS Kick Starts 2010 World Cup Promotion With POS Kit

Leading manufacturer and supplier of point-of-sale products is offering retailers a 2010 World Cup Point of Sale kit.

UK POS Kick Starts 2010 World Cup Promotion With POS Kit

With the 2010 World Cup only a few of weeks away UK Point of Sale Group Ltd (UK POS) is launching a 2010 World Cup POS kit to help retailers maximise their World Cup promotions this summer. The promotional kit, which includes such things as snap frames, will be offered at a special rate of £225 as a further incentive to encourage retailers to maximise sales during this event period.

The 2010 World Cup, which takes place between 11th June and 11th July, is predicated to give the UK’s economy a much needed boost this summer. According to a South African online news source, Daily News: “the British Retail Consortium estimates that the 2006 World Cup generated £1.25bn in retail sales and anticipates similar for 2010, with more if England progress further.”

Sales and Marketing Director of UK POS, Debra Jamieson said:“The World Cup POS kit has been devised with independent retailers in mind. It is designed to optimise World Cup promotions in a cost effective way, but without compromising on the overall quality of the materials provided. We are advising our customers to make the most out of the World Cup by preparing for it in advance and even dedicating a space in-store for all related sales promotions.”

“The level of sales we expect will be in comparison to other seasonal events such as Christmas and Easter. The fact it only comes around every four years makes it even more important, so we expect that both consumers and retailers will be making the most of it.”

The pack includes:
• A1 Pavement Signs
• Two A1 Snap Frames
• 10 A4 Snap Frames
• 100 Shelf Talkers
• 100 Wobbler Arms
• 100 Suspended Ceiling Hangers
• 100 Extending Wire for ceiling posters

The promotion kit includes some of UK POS’ leading products to maximise the use of space both inside and front of store. The kit provides retailers with the essential tools to fulfil all their PoS requirements and help guide customers through the store.

Campaigning Politicians Inspire Businesses to Invest In Their Own Display Advertising Strategy

UK Point of Sale (UK POS) has recently reviewed the election campaigns of all three major political parties to discover whether any lessons can be learnt from the politicians when it comes to businesses increasing their visibility and marketing in the real world.

Campaigning Politicians Inspire Businesses to Invest In Their Own Display Advertising Strategy

UK POS provides many point of sale accessories such as pavement signs and snap frames that can help improve customers’ experience when inside the shop but there have been a few parallels with the focus on the UK General Elections and how a lot of the marketing strategies could help boost UK businesses to win the public’s vote when deciding where to do their shopping.

Posters are a tried and tested method of advertising businesses but one key point of sale accessory is the suggestion box, something not unlike the ballot boxes that the whole of the country will be visiting to vote for their chosen party in May.

Debra Jamieson, marketing and sales director for UK POS commented: “It may be a New Year which generally means a new start, but as retailers face the same threat of low consumer spending in 2010, it would seem that customer influence and demand will make a bigger impact than it has in previous, more financially buoyant years. Generally consumers have stripped back their spending habits so it’s important to know what they want from their shopping experience and retailers will be expected to do act on the feedback generated.”

Some businesses during the recession may have cut back on display advertising but much like in the political arena businesses and stores need to show they have a plan to recover and generate money/sales. The strategic use of suggestion boxes whether they are placed in store or used as a part of a prize giveaway for an added incentive can give the business a key insight into what the consumers think of the layout and range of products as well as the customer service and overall experience of shopping at that particular store.

UK POS Believes In The All Important Finishing Touches

Behind any retailers strategically designed POS should be a fixing which adds a suitable and discreet finishing touch, according to leading UK manufacturer of point of sale materials, UK Point of Sale Group Ltd (UK POS). Offering a varied range of display accessories and fixings is important for customers to complete their POS packages whether that be a bespoke or off the shelf product.

It is necessary to highlight the value of quality display accessories and fixings, such as suspension fixings, ceiling fixings, wobbler strips and suction cups, to retailers. As Sales and Marketing Director of UK POS, Debra Jamieson, explains:“Retailers will have a process from which they design and print their POS to how and where it is displayed. But how is it going to be attached and fixed without the fixings looking unsightly and intrusive? The answer is to offer a variety of options whatever the shape, size and weight of the POS and an experienced customer services team who can advise on the best option. As a manufacturer of these products, we can even design and manufacture unique items especially for customers.”

“For example a leading furniture retailer approached us in the hope that we could solve a longstanding nuisance. It found that flexible wallets were always supplied with white adhesive buttons, which really stood out when placed on furniture. Having tried to source clear buttons for a while, our design team went that extra mile to mould clear alternatives to the retailer’s desired specification.”

UK POS’ range of ceiling, wall, window and shelf fixing options ensures retailers have the accessories to finish the job. The range includes suspension and ceiling fixings, which come in a variety of designs to offer uplifting promotions or to guide customers around stores. Wobbler strips provide off the shelf solutions for impulsive offers, whilst suction cups are discreet and secure making them perfect for window displays.

Currently UK POS is offering bulk buy discounts on it entire display accessories and fixings range. Customers can order products from the range online at www.ukpos.com or call 0161 431 4400 to speak to a member of the experienced customer service team.
