A half-price helmet Sale is pretty much unheard of. And that’s because buying a helmet at half the recommended retail price means that you’re buying it at less than the retailer paid for it. In other words, the retailer is losing money. That’s why its uncommon.
But we have probably a couple of hundred helmets here in the Guildford warehouse that, for one reason or another, we won’t be marketing in the future.
We’d like to move them on and, in our experience, when something brand new is being sold for half its actual price, a lot of people want it.
Now, all these helmets are brand new and in boxes, untouched and unworn.
But, and here’s the catch, we’re going to be offering them as ‘used’ items without a warranty.
If we’re going to lose money on a helmet, we cannot afford to get involved in issues that may or may not develop in the future.
The helmets will need to be paid for by cash. There won’t be a record of the transaction on our mail-order system, and we’ll be keeping the boxes.
There’s nothing suspicious or dodgy going on. It’s merely that these helmets are taking up space. We want them gone, and we’re prepared to take a hit to get rid of them.
You have to decide whether you’re prepared to take this risk. A premium helmet from one of the major brands at a price you’ll never see again. In all probability, you’ll never have an issue, because there’s really not that much than can go wrong with a helmet. But if it does, the problem is yours; not ours.
See you on Saturday 12th. Bring your own box!
