Being able to offer finance has definitely helped to secure more sales for this family business in Northern Ireland.
Established just three years ago, Ballycastle Climbing Frames is the leading manufacturer of domestic and commercial climbing frames in Northern Ireland. In addition to their individually crafted play equipment, they also supply bespoke playground furniture, garden furniture and luxury garden buildings.
The company was set up by Nicola and Barry Graham, and it soon built up a wide range of customers, from young families through to older couples. Their non-domestic customers include entrepreneurs, established businesses, schools, nurseries and local authorities.
At the beginning of 2023, Ballycastle Climbing Frames began working with Ideal4Finance, to make flexible payments available to their customers. Director, Nicola Graham says: “It was becoming clear to us that some of our customers would prefer the option of paying with finance. We also thought we could attract more and different customers if offering finance was available.”
The business saw customers taking advantage of the finance facility within just weeks of it being set up, with payment plans quickly approved across the whole product range. “Being able to offer finance has definitely helped us to secure more sales,” says Nicola. “We think our sales have probably increased by about 30% because we can now offer monthly payments.”
Ballycastle Climbing Frames is known for its meticulous attention to detail and incredibly high standards for safety, quality and eco-friendly practices. They are recognised as a trusted Educational Authority Supplier and an approved disability installer. With a brand new website recently launched and a finance option in place for customers, the future is looking good.
“We’re so pleased we teamed up with Ideal4Finance, as they’ve helped us offer our customers a more manageable way to fund their projects,” says Nicola. “From parents wanting to give their children a magical play area to new business owners wanting to improve their facilities, the finance option is making it easier for customers to purchase.”
