Hi there, I’m Jaye, Founder and CEO of Gobi Heat®. I wanted to take some time to write a little about our Theory of Customer Service at Gobi Heat and what I believe makes us different, starting with a short cautionary tale many of us have experienced first hand.
It’s a tale as old as the internet. You find a great deal online and “add to cart” faster than you can blink. You’re rewarded with an online retail therapy high of snagging a great deal while anxiously waiting for it to arrive. But it doesn’t. So, you check your bank account and you really did make that purchase because there it is, the charge for that item. A few more days go by and nothing shows up and you have no email about it shipping so you try to remember what site you were on. Finally, you track it down and look for a phone number to call and….no phone number. There’s an email address and that’s it. You send off an email and cross your fingers.
There are hundreds of ways this story ends, but unfortunately it often ends with the product not showing up or the product being of poor quality, leaving you with a feeling of buyer’s remorse, or worrying about who out there has your bank account information. To make matters worse, there is no one to actually talk to (that you can understand). On to calling your bank and trying to get your money back.
At Gobi Heat®, we believe our number one goal next to creating industry leading heated clothing is providing excellent customer service to match. To this end, we’ve made it our mission to provide the kind of customer service to get you the answers and solutions you need so you can get back to doing what you love in the quality heated apparel you trust.
I believe that everyone can benefit from heated apparel in one way or another. When purchasing heated apparel, look for a company that has been in business for at least a few years, is USA-owned and operated and puts their customer relationships at the forefront of their business. What you’ll find is a company like Gobi Heat® to deliver you the heated apparel to confidently and comfortably get you back out there doing what you love.
Anyone who works or plays outside in cold weather knows not to leave home without cold weather gear, including a reliable heating source for your hands. After all, extremities like hands and feet are more likely to get cold faster than other parts of our body, and trying to function with frozen fingers is a job in and of itself. This leads us to the all important question: when spending time outdoors, is it worth it to invest in electric hand warmer gloves, or should you try to get by with heated hand warmers?
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, which means it’s time for the obligatory Google search for “awesome Valentine’s gifts” to find your special person a Valentine’s Day gift they’ll love. Oftentimes you’ll find that the search for new and inspiring “Valentine’s Day gifts for him” or “Valentine’s Day gifts for her” leaves you feeling a little discouraged. After all, your partner deserves something great! They deserve a totally awesome Valentine’s gift, something they’ll use and love. That’s where we come in!
While the winter months can make you feel like you’re living in a winter wonderland, instances arise where cold weather can suddenly shift direction and be just outright dangerous. One example of this is a polar vortex. So, what is a polar vortex, and how can you best prepare and ultimately protect against one?
