If you’re a homeowner, you’re probably thinking “why should I be reading this if they’re talking about wholesale?” Surely wholesalers only sell to the trade and in bulk? Well, a lot of wholesalers sell to individuals like yourself now, whilst at the same time giving you the best prices they can.
This means you can save yourself money and save for a new car or even spend it on a holiday. Before approaching a wholesale supplier, however, you’ll need to have an idea of what you want and the price you’re wanting to pay for it.
By their nature, yes, wholesale suppliers will give the trade better prices. They are buying in bigger quantities, but as an individual or a business, their price shouldn’t be the only deciding factor you focus on. You’ll also want to look at reviews from past customers to see if they were happy with, firstly, the quality of the product, and secondly, the service they received. Also, if you’re in a rush to get your desired item, have a look at how long on average they take to deliver to customers to see if they’ll be able to compete for delivery within that timeframe.
If you’re renovating your home, it can be extremely useful to choose wholesale as you’ll need to be saving money wherever you can should anything go wrong or any unexpected costs creep up. If you’re redesigning your kitchen, for example, there are a wide range of wholesale cabinets to choose from that, first and foremost, provide you with value, but more importantly, a more diverse choice of cabinets to choose from so that you can find one that complements the existing design of your house.
Many wholesale suppliers will have products in stock from brands you’re familiar with as well. This helps as you’ll have confidence that the product will be of high quality despite the low price. Also, after you’ve bought the product, you’ll find that the delivery or shipping costs associated with wholesalers are a lot cheaper than their retail counterparts. They’ll have a bigger transport infrastructure set up which allows them to deliver to you at a lower cost.
However, not every wholesaler will be able to sell to individuals and smaller businesses so it’s worth enquiring as to whether there are any minimum requirements to purchase from them. For example, some wholesalers might have a minimum order quantity or value you’d have to meet to buy something from them, others might not. However, you’re only going to find out if you approach the wholesaler themselves. Don’t be afraid to speak to them, you’re not going to look silly if you can’t meet the minimum order value or quantity.
Hopefully, this has taught you a bit more about what wholesalers are all about and why you should consider purchasing from them in the future, whether you’re a small business, a large business or even just an individual. In the grand scheme of things, you’re going to be saving a lot of money if you find wholesaler suppliers than can sell you what you need either for your home or for your business. The money you save can be spent elsewhere or even for a future occasion or another renovation.
