Finding a reputable paintball supplier
Whether you are an avid paintball player or you are just starting out in the action-packed industry, you will know the importance of finding a reputable paintball supplier you can trust. A team who is knowledgeable and can give you advice, as well as provide brilliant supplies that are of good quality at competitive prices. For those who have been attending paintballing events for some time, we are sure you will have had the unfortunate experience of using less than the best projectiles, or having a marker fall apart in your hands, all because you believed a supplier was reputable and it wasn’t. This is not your fault! With so many paintball suppliers on the market, it can be difficult to find a reputable and trustworthy one among the mix.
BattleGear UK has put together this easy guide for you so you can spot a reputable supplier from a mile off in the future and you are no longer faced with substandard equipment when you are on the playing field. As a reputable paintball supplier, BattleGear UK knows what you should be looking for in your supplier.
Expectations of your trusted paintball supplier
Up to date compliance and legality information
It’s no secret that the paintball industry is heavily governed to deter injury or assault from markers being used outside of a paintballing event. There are several pieces of legislation regarding suitable markers, their build and the projectiles they use that aim to protect others from the harm they could impose. Your paintball supplier should be up to date on all compliance and be able to advise you of the latest legislation in layman’s terms.
The paintball industry is governed closely by the United Kingdom Paintball Sports Federation and those who supply safe and effective paintball equipment can be accredited by the UKPSF if they adhere to all principles. Only use paintball suppliers who are accredited by the UKPSF like BattleGear UK.
Customer satisfaction and quality products are key
The paintball industry is a growing place but still comes under much scrutiny. Paintball suppliers who are serious about keeping the industry in the best light will want to provide the best customer satisfaction with quality products. Failure to do so could lead the industry into more disrepute and give it a bad reputation. Supplying the wrong equipment, or equipment that is faulty could not only endanger the person using it but those around them so it’s imperative that you choose a company that can provide you with high-quality products and great customer service every time you choose to work with them.

Knowledge and experience from your paintball supplier
When you work with a reputable paintball supplier like BattleGear UK, you will have peace of mind that the founders of the company are both avid paintball players and this is why BattleGear UK was formed. Paul Strutt, managing director of BattleGear designed the company to show his continued commitment to UK paintball, aimed at providing great quality products and the knowledge and experience that both avid and new paintball players want and need in the industry. Richard Widenbarr, the Creative Director, has been a paintball player for over 10 years and maintains BattleGear to ensure this growing paintball community of passionate people are supported in their sport.
A friendly and professional paintball supplier team
When you come across a niche industry supplier, it can be challenging to find a company that is able to communicate both to long-standing players as well as newcomers. For newcomers to the sport, in particular, it can be a little daunting to approach a paintball supplier with limited knowledge but a keen interest in the sport and can leave people feeling unwelcome or devalued in the sport if they are spoken to in the wrong way or assumed to be unknowledgeable. Find a company that will support you in the same effective way from the beginning of your paintball journey, right through to you being an expert player. Choose a company that is friendly and remembers you, yet is still professional and can give you the information you need in a way that makes sense to you.
Competitive and cost-effective prices for your products
With many paintball products on the market, it can be challenging to know what cost-effective pricing is and whether you are getting the most for your money whilst still getting a quality product. Good quality paintball products are not cheap, so if you have found a seemingly perfect marker for a fraction of the cost you expected to pay, the chances are there will be a catch. Aim to always purchase your equipment, projectiles and accessories from a paintball supplier who offers a satisfaction guarantee and who can show they will offer you the best price – don’t forget, the best price may not always be the cheapest, but you can be assured that you will be purchasing a safe and quality product.
