Showing our Support for Bike Month

The start of Bike Month is just around the corner (it starts on Monday, May 27) and we at Classic Displays believe in what Bike Month is trying to accomplish, which is why we have decided to offer 10% off our bike racks from now until June 27 to show our support.

For those of you that are unfamiliar, Bike Month is a month long event that takes place annually to raise awareness of the benefits of cycling and to try and get people to leave their cars at home and use their bikes on a more regular basis. It’s apparent the initiative has been well received as what started as Bike to Work Day (a one day event) has blossomed into a month long event that takes place in a number of communities across the province with a variety of events taking place throughout the month.

Unfortunately, a number of us live a bit too far away from the office to be able to bike to work but we still wanted to show our support for this great cause, that’s why it was a no brainer for us to offer our bike racks at a 10% discount.

Carrying a variety of styles that hold anywhere from 2-16 bikes, our racks are made from zinc treated, powder coated steel or galvanized steel to outlast the elements. With the option for customization on certain models and various mounting options available our racks can enhance any community street, BIA or commercial/retail property.

So make it easy for your residents, customers and tenants to take part in Bike Month by having bike racks that offer the security your patrons are looking for.

Brightening Up the Streets(ville) with Classic Displays

The arrival of spring, or in this year’s case summer like weather, means our production and installation has ramped up for another busy season. Although site furniture is a year round business it certainly has its peek times which is something we at Classic Displays have grown accustomed to managing.

We work with a variety of customers including large cities and property managers who often order a large quantity of products for multiple locations, which means simply manufacturing and shipping the product isn’t always the easiest or best option. It’s for this reason we offer our customers our installation services.

Here at Classic Displays we understand that sometimes the last thing a customer wants to worry about is finding someone to install the benches or waste bins they have just purchased, which is why we have a crew dedicated to the installation of our products, and trust us, they are a very busy crew. In a single week they can be in Tillsonburg one day and Streetsville the next. In fact they were there, last week.

In Streetsville’s case they were looking to replace a number of wooden benches in their BIA, and having worked with them many times in the past they came to us. Using the existing design of their benches we made slight modifications to our Classic Heritage model to meet their request. Once produced, in house of course, an installation date was set and our crew went out, removed the existing benches and installed the new ones.

The benches were bolted to the ground using stainless steel hardware (we always recommend our products be affixed to the ground) to avoid rusting and maintain an esthetically pleasing look while ensuring the bench is secure. Once the installation of the benches was complete our crew delivered the old benches to the cities yard as requested.

As our installers can attest Mother Nature doesn’t always comply with our installation schedule (stay tuned for posts during Christmas installation season) but that’s what layers are for! In busy times like this we can’t let some bad weather get in the way of meeting our customers deadlines.

With customer satisfaction being our number one priority, we want our products to not only enhance a city street or commercial property but act as a reminder to our customers of how easy it was to work with us so they will want to continue to work with us in the future.
