London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) February 15, 2013 -- Pedal-Pedal the newly launched 'on-line and on-the phone' specialist cycling accessories retailer, immediately establishes a top 10 position in providing outstanding service to customers across the UK cycling market, with a 94% customer satisfaction rating.
Pedal-Pedal.co.uk was launched in November 2012 after extensive research looking at traditional and online retail cycling businesses, both in the UK and internationally. Research showed that there was a need to provide a greater level of customer experience than is currently on offer within the sector.
Pedal-Pedal's philosophy is centered on talking to its customers directly. The founders have significant experience of building award-winning telephone-based customer service operations in the UK and understand the importance of phone support to online businesses, particularly in the world of cycling where first-hand advice is so important. Initial indications are that over 85% of people calling become customers of Pedal-Pedal.
"We researched the market for over 12 months, and concluded there was a clear opportunity to provide much stronger service from an on-line retailer into the cycling market. We also wanted to speak to our customers and help them, so from the start we are combining a great web-site with oustanding and friendly telephone service. Our first customers have confirmed that they are delighted with the outstanding service that they have received from us." commented Tim Wort founder of Pedal-Pedal.
"We are passionate about building an online business that is as approachable as your local bike shop, where it is easy to find great products and easy to select those that are right for you, whether you're new to cycling, been cycling for 50 years, female or male." added Tim Wort.
In order that customers get an accurate and independent view of the products, all the descriptions are written by the staff, based on their cycling experience and their personal opinion of each product. Bespoke imagery is taken within custom-built studio facilities and products are made easy to search for, with customized on-page search that dynamically changes depending on the type of product that a customer is looking for.
Most importantly, the founders recognize that customer service is the key benchmark to success. Pedal-Pedal is working with Trustpilot, the UK leader in monitoring customer service. This offers the opportunity to independently review their experience, to all customers. Within two months, Pedal-Pedal has already achieved a top 10 position, (currently no.6) ranked against all UK bike accessory providers, with a customer service ranking of 94%. Results also show that trust levels are high with 65% of customers prepared to buy from Pedal-Peal on their first visit.
"We're delighted that from the start we've been able to deliver outstanding service to the UK cycling market, and we're delighted with the initial response we have received from our customers" said Tim Wort Founder of the business.
