Each one of the 3,500+ gas resellers in our database has the words ‘Tell staff “Found on GBR”’. And why are those words there?
Because most gas resellers have never heard of GBR – GAS BOTTLE REFILLS dot com
You see, Barbara and I started this website, which is a free service, in July 2016. Prior to that, there was no Australian website or app which enabled folk to compare BBQ and camping gas bottle prices, suburb to suburb, town to town.
The concept of the service first occurred to me when we bought an Avan motorhome in 2013. At handover, the sales lady strongly advised us not to swap the two gas bottles supplied. Those bottles fit perfectly into the Avan gas locker and are the best quality steel available. This cannot be said of all bottles in the cages outside tens of thousands of gas selling locations.
So how do we let people know about this free service we offer?
We certainly cannot afford to advertise. And in any case, the most effective form of advertising is word-of-mouth and that’s free!
This is why I am appealing for your help. When you go to purchase BBQ or camping bottle gas, please say to the sales assistant “Found on GBR”. Most are going to look at you in puzzlement, especially if their English is not so good.
However, every now and then, when not too busy, the person at the cash register will ask what you mean. If you are prepared to have a short conversation and tell them the business is listed on the Gas Bottle Refills (GBR) dot com website FREE OF ANY COST, that would help Barbara and me enormously.
In any case, if, via the link below, you tell us about a price change or any other change at that location, you may win a gas bottle monitor worth $89.95.
