Flooring Installations by jackking.com – Internet Shoppers
Perhaps you have found a product (and a price) on the internet for flooring. Often, these prices are as low or lower than you can buy at wholesale. How is this possible and what are the hidden risks and costs?
- Make sure you include freight in the calculation of price.
- Internet sellers charge very high prices for trim pieces—customers assume since the material is inexpensive everything is.
- Material being sold may be seconds represented as first quality product, and this is usually the case.
- Ask how warranty issues are handled. Most manufactures process warranty claims through local distributors and local distributors won’t handle claims on material they don’t sell.
