Online Superstore Reinforced for Upcoming Hurricane Season
BOLINGBROOK, IL (June 01, 2008) - Hurricane season officially starts today. Most retailers brace for the big storms by battening down the hatches.
ElectricGeneratorsDirect.com, however, isn't your ordinary brick and mortar retailer. During a disaster, the online generator superstore goes into hyper-drive. Web traffic skyrockets, and generators sell out faster than concert tickets.
In preparation of Hurricane season, Power Equipment Direct today replaced its 5-year-old web site with a brand new web store with a reinforced infrastructure and customer-friendly features.
"We went beyond a cosmetic facelift," said Jon Hoch, founder of Power Equipment Direct. "The site went through a complete structural overhaul."
The redesigned virtual store was strategically enhanced to withstand the massive influx of traffic immediately following a disaster - like a hurricane or ice storm.
The new site now offers even more robust features to help customers quickly pick the perfect generator, including:
Real-Time Inventory During a massive power outage, generators literally sell out in seconds. While other web sites simply take backorders, the new ElectricGeneratorsDirect.com displays Real-Time Inventory, helping customers order a generator that's actually in stock.
Priority Shipment The web site also offers Priority Shipment service to rapidly reduce transit times on emergency generators - which cannot be shipped on an airplane. ElectricGeneratorsDirect.com guarantees that in-stock generators will ship the same business day if ordered before 3 p.m. EST for a $50.00 service fee.
Expedited Delivery ElectricGeneratorsDirect.com now offers Expedited Delivery for customers in a hurry to get their accessories. Any in-stock generator accessory is eligible for Three-Day, Second-Day or Next-Day Air delivery service.
Storm Stories Product reviews are nice. Storm Stories are even better. Customers can now upload their own disaster photos along with product reviews, how-to advice and recommendations.
Quick Search ElectricGeneratorsDirect.com offers more than 150 different generator models. Customer can now narrow their selection in seconds with four mouse clicks.
Side-by-Side Comparison Customers can now compare up to 4 generators side-by-side with the site's new comparison tool, helping customers pick the perfect generator.
Electric Generators Direct specializes in the following categories:
Tillers Direct announces the get generator and the find generator. The product experts chose the generator site based on sales history and customer reviews. Read recommendations on the new electric generators direct website from the experts who work with them every day.
