  • Zimx Hoverboard – Competition Winner


    As we embarked on the Summer of 2018, we welcomed the onset of the sun. It meant plenty of chances to get outside and enjoy riding a Hoverboard. Which is why in August, we held a competition on our Facebook page for someone to win a ZIMX Swegway Hoverboard.

    The competition details

    It was an easy one. In order to give the public and our loyal Facebook followers the chance to get their hands on a free hoverboard, all they had to do was enter our competition and to let us know what most awesome Summer activity they would do if they won a ZIMX Hoverboard in the comments section, like the page and tag someone in their squad who’d love to join in the fun.

    We ran the competition for just under a month, finishing on the end of August. We had hundreds and hundreds of comments, and reached nearly 50 thousand people, who also made loads of shares, likes and page likes. For us this was very good as we got to showcase the UK’s number one hoverboard company to more people across the country.

    We received comment after comment and loved reading the reasons why people were entering. Some wanted a birthday present for a family member. Some just wanted an awesome hoverboard (who could blame them?). We wish we could give away lots more (but then we wouldn’t be the best business, would we?) as we do want to keep our ukbigbuy family happy!

    The winner revealed

    As it happened, only one person could win. And that person was Jane Hart. We gave her a massive congratulations for taking part and for winning the prize. It was even luckier for Jane’s daughter, who got the prize via her kind-hearted mum.

    On Facebook, Jane said “Can’t thank you guys enough you have brought so much happiness to my daughter might have to contact you about the attachment to turn it into the cart for her as well.”

    Thank you, Jane, for taking part! And we hope your daughter enjoys the ZIMX Hoverboard and has loads of fun on it.

    If you want to see some pictures of the hoverboards, the grand unveiling, and the lucky winner’s recipient beaming smile and a big hand drawn "Thank you so much" poster, which melted our hearts in our office. Don’t forget to check out our Facebook page. Jane was kind enough to provide us with some pictures.

    More competitions to come

    It just goes to show that it can happen to anyone. In fact, it could happen to someone again soon. Due to the popularity of the competition, we will be holding more in the future, giving more people the chance to get their hands on a unique ZIMX Hoverboard. Which model and colour? Well, you’ll just have to find out.

    Keep following us on Facebook for more exclusive news and information about upcoming competitions.

  • UK Big Buy - Extended Christmas Warranty

    UK Big Buy - Extended Christmas Warranty

    UK Big Buy is now offering extended warranties! It was something that we have always done every year around this time for Christmas purchases from us, so we thought we would let everyone know about it!


    Extended warranty – What does this mean?

    An extended warranty means that your warranty starts from the day the board is opened on Christmas Morning, rather than the day you bought it.

    Therefore, this means that your 12 months starts from 25th December and not the date of purchase!

    So, if you are a prepared person who likes to buy in advance, your warranty is not covering when your hoverboard is hidden away in the cupboard or under the bed!


    Extended warranties – Why are they useful?

    Extended warranties allow you to:

    • First of all, get super organised!
    • Are able to buy when we have great offers on, ensuring that you get the best price!
    • Make sure that you get full use out of your 12-month warranty
    • Ensure you get your hoverboard of choice
    • You can also cross one more thing off your to do list!


    How do I get my UK Big Buy Extended Warranty?

    Just email us that you bought your order for Christmas to

    Also let us know in the email;

    1. Your order number
    2. Your name
    3. The date that you want the warranty to start from

    Then someone will get back to you confirming your warranty request and add this request on your order file with us.


    How do I claim on my Extended Warranty?

    Here at UK Big Buy, we store all our extended warranty requests online. So, if you need to raise a warranty request, simply contact us via our Contact Us page or email us on with your order number as a reference and we will have all of your information available to us.
