1. We are owned and run by skaters!

Ain't no-one as passionate and caring about skating as we are! We have been deep in the skate community for over 17 years as skaters and are widely respected in our skate circle. So we absolutely have a vested interest in giving you an excellent experience as well as excellent skates! This also means we know lots of stuff about rollerskates too. We have a HUGE amount of accumulated knowledge - we're basically walking encyclopedias!

2. We have a physical store as well as online

You can try on boots and skates as well as look at products in person AND speak to a real live human. Our specialty is our skate fitting service where we spend a whole heap of time with you getting the right fit. In fact sometimes customers spend upwards of 3 hours choosing their dream skates!

3. Our stock

We are like an Aladdin's Cave of rollerskates! We have full fitting stock of most of our major brands and unique access to many more products that we can custom order in for you. We often operate as a J.I.T (Just In Time) business which means we keep small amounts of stock in the shop and re-order in often. This means we can constantly update our products, getting in the latest things for you and we're not sitting on huge amounts of old products. If you don't see something on our site but know it exists....contact us and we very well might get it in for you! All our online orders are fulfiled from the stock we have at our physical premises, so we always know what's available. In order to be able to carry as many items as possible and give you the most amount of stuff to choose from, some things we order especially in for you at the point of purchase.

4. Our Distance Fitting Service

Created in 2019, we realised we had many UK customers who simply couldn't get in to see us. So we started this service where we can send multiple sizes of skate boots to you to try on at home, then once you've decided we mount them up and you got yourself a new pair o' rollerskates. This has been super successful in getting the right fitting boots for our customers across the country.

5. Postage tracking, Easy Returns and Exchanges

We send all our items tracked and our system sends you an email with the tracking number so you know exactly when to expect your order. We have a returns and exchanges portal accessible from your customer profile on our website which enables you to request returns and receive returns labels via Royal Mail or Parcelforce.

6. Personalised Website Content and Product Knowledge

Since day 1 we have always photographed our products in house against our iconic DTS back drop. We want you to know that we have physically looked at and tested most products in our store. When we get new products in, we can then write about them from experience. You'll find our product descriptions, blogs and FAQs full of personalised content rather than just cut and pasted from the manufacturer's website.

7. Savant-level dedication to knowing stuff

Want to know if that wheel will fit that axle? Which plate size will fit that boot? Which wide truck is compatible with which plate? Which boot you will fit based on what your current boot is despite the sizing being wackadoodle different? We can tell you because we have spent years worth of our time collating information, creating spreadsheets and compatibility charts.

8. We're Great When We Make Mistakes!

We can't get it right all the time but we reckon the mark of a great business is being able to get it right when we've got it wrong. Rest assured you won't need to get stern with us and start a fight to get a wrong righted. We want to make sure you'e happy so don't worry if you need to tell us we did a boo-boo!

9. We're Inclusive!

We are woman and queer owned. We are big fans of the LGBTQ+ folk, we are trans-inclusive and anti-racist. We support many local community groups and are a welcoming and safe space for those who belong to marginalised communities.

10. Free Stuff!

Everyone likes free stuff right? We always include goodies in your online orders and when we send your gear out.

🛠️ Standard Skate Mounting Services 🔧

📢This is for standard rollerskate boots. Please check our other products for custom trainer mounts or ice conversions. 

''PRICE STARTS FROM'' info:

This is for used boots that require holes to be filled - we say this because honestly, some re-mounts are absolute bastards. Rusty bolts that are impossible to get out, old boots that have weird shit going on with them, non-standard parts that require different tools, etc, etc. Honestly some of them aren't worth the amount of time it takes us to do them! As much as we love you and we go that extra mile, time is money, and sometimes we have to charge you for that time! If it looks like your mount is going to take over the alotted time we set aside for re-mounts, we might give you a call to let you know that we need to charge you more. Unfortunately we can't really know this til we get started. Be assured we are not cheeky and we absolutely don't take the piss with this, but unfortunately we noticed we're being caught out on some jobs, and rather than just raise the price for all re-mounts, this is the best solution we can think of.

✉️ Email for Expert Advice: Got specific mounting needs or need advice? Drop us an email at info@doublethreatskates.co.uk.

🕒 Mounting Availability: Unfortunately, we can't offer same-day mounting right now due to our busy schedule. Wait time for all mounting jobs is between 1-2 weeks. In addition, if you're getting a re-mount and we need to glue the holes, the glue we use takes 24 hours to dry so this means it can add time on.

Chaya Boot Mounting - A Bit Tricky but Worth It!
Chaya boots can be a bit tricky to mount, especially if you want anything other than the DCM system. Due to the extra time they take, we have to charge a bit more.

📦 How to Bring or Send Your Plates:
You can either bring your plates into the shop or post them to us - whichever suits you best!

🛠️ What's Included:
All skate build services come with a mounting kit (nuts n' bolts for fixing plates). 

⚠️ Didn't Purchase Boot and Plate from DTS? Choose This Option:
If you didn't buy the boot and plate from us, go for the 'Did Not Purchase from DTS' option.

Precision Matters - Your Skates, Your Way!
🎯 Specific Preferences? Let Us Know:
We pay close attention to mounting plates to boots, considering factors like size and shape. If you have specific preferences, inform us before mounting.

👀 Aesthetic vs. Performance:
We prioritize performance over aesthetics, especially when dealing with hand-made, custom-built boots that may have minor irregularities. Let us know if you prefer an aesthetic focus.

🔄 Re-Mounts and Potential Gluing:
Re-mounts might involve gluing old holes. While it might not look perfect, rest assured it won't affect performance or boot longevity.

 

🔄 Re-Mounting Old Skates Warning:
Re-mounting plates on very old, used, or 'vintage' skates might encounter issues like rusty bolts or glued soles. Just a heads up!

If any boots require removing rivets, that falls under the 'custom mount - ice conversion (includes blade removal)' product.

Please note: While we are always careful, we cannot guarantee plate mounting without the plates being marked. Once boots and plates have been mounted, they cannot be returned.

By purchasing this product, you are agreeing to these T's and C's.

We have a couple of shipping options available. Priority Tracked is usually 2-4 business days. Non-Priority Tracked can be between 3-7 business days. We offer FREE non-priority postage for orders over £100.00
Both options depend if we have stock ready to go, if we do, you might find you may receive it next day, regardless of the shipping selected! This time frame includes processing time, packaging up as well as the actual postage time. You can read more about our policies HERE

Unfortunately this is only for our UK customers however we can arrange returns/exchanges for International too. You can read more about our returns and exchanges policies HERE

Purchasing from us internationally? Thanks friends! If you are not purchasing from within the UK then you will notice we do NOT charge you VAT when you purchase from us. This makes our prices seem very cheap as they will appear 20% cheaper for you! VAT/taxes, and any customs duty (usually approx. 3%) and processing fees by the courier will be paid for you when the item reaches your country. This includes for all EU customers. VAT/Taxes, customs duty and fees vary country to country - so we cannot give you an accurate guess of what this might be. We just like to let you know so it does not come as a surprise!

Sorted my skates!

I left my old skates in to have new plates fitted as I couldn't remove the plates myself with the old rusty screws involved. DT helped me pick out new plates and wheels, sorted my skates for me, posted everything back with some new skate tools. They were so helpful and did a brilliant job - totally recommend to anyone. Thank you!
