The Replacement Lightbulb Company
Click, and nothing, the bulb’s gone. It's one of the most frustrating things that can happen in the home and the workplace – because when you click that switch it's invariably dark. Where are the replacement bulbs? Do you have a replacement bulb? Are you sure that the bulb you have is the right size, the right type, the right wattage?
Once upon a time there were just a few kinds of bulbs and most of us knew what they were. Screw fit, bayonet, fluorescent tube…
These days things are not so simple, there are so many varieties and sizes and even in the smallest office or home you can need a huge number of different bulbs to fulfill your needs. It's a minefield and it can be a very expensive one too in addition to that inconvenience. You know how annoying this can all be at home so imagine the headache it can be for property management companies and businesses.
The Replacement Lightbulb Company was formed as a dedicated service to replace and fit lightbulbs for both businesses and for individuals. Managing director Mark Packwood recognised a need and came up with a solution. "Over the years, light bulbs as a product have become more complex. With different varieties and wattages available, as well as specific processes for installation, this has resulted in health and safety being a more pertinent issue. This is particularly true for businesses with regulations to follow, as well as being a risk for individuals trying to do it themselves.
Mark Packwood has over 30 years experience of working with property management companies to improve their efficiency and customer service and he has been able to use his enhanced skill-set to improve working practices and elevate productivity within the property industry.
With this insight into the way that properties are managed, he came up with the idea for The Replacement Lightbulb Company – a dedicated service to fill a gap in the market which focuses solely on replacing and fitting light bulbs.
"Here at RLC we are set up to step in and provide a professional and swift installation and replacement service. We have a team of knowledgeable operatives who can make the right product recommendation for you, and ensure it is ordered and installed in a timely manner. Most products on order will take only 24 hours for delivery in comparison to our competitors’ average turnaround of 3-5 days. We pride ourselves on being highly cost effective to our customers, with no extra charges for call outs or any hidden costs. What you see is what you get.
"When you need a light bulb replaced, your first port of call will probably be to attempt it yourself. However, with the plethora of bulbs available, and the health and safety risks involved in changing one, how do you know you are carrying out the job properly? If you’re unsure, your second port of call might be to contact an electrician. This can be incredibly costly – but there is another better way.
"The Replacement Lightbulb Company is a speciality service solely dedicated to the replacement of light bulbs, providing a cost-effective solution for businesses and individuals. This means that you can save significant amounts by choosing to call upon their help in place of an electrician.And because they specialise in bulbs, they know the product inside out. From LED’s to tubes, halogens and spotlights, we can assess your needs and provide you with the fitting of a high quality bulb. Energy conscious? We are too. We’ll help you get the most out of your bulb whilst saving money on your electricity bill. We are incredibly confident in our response times too – we’re faster and more convenient than the competition, plus we’ll get you a better deal on bulk discounts for bulbs for you too. Our delivery time is typically within 24 hours, but we’ll be sure to keep you up informed. It’s very important to us that you are happy with the work we have carried out. Which is why we like to follow up with all of our customers and ensure they are fully content. If you’re happy for us to do so, we can give you a call or drop you an email to check in."
