Wholesale Furniture

There are some slight differences in the way wholesale business is conducted and these differences show quite clearly in the wholesale furniture industry. Not that there is anything wrong with any of the various ways the transactions are made.

Simply put, there are retail stores and others in the profession that purchase new furniture from wholesale suppliers, distributors and manufacturers for the purpose of reselling it to individual customers. These stores receive low prices because they buy directly from the distributor or manufacturer in fairly large amounts, after filing a sales tax form and other business license information with the wholesale furniture merchant.

In a slightly different manner, others purchase new furniture from brokers, liquidators and other middle men at low prices, often because the furniture did not sell in the retail store or the warehouse was overstocked with a particular model or style. This happens when new styles or designs are ready to be displayed and room must be made in warehouses or stores. Slightly damaged or blemished items are sold in this manner as well.

But no matter what the circumstances, there are great bargains in the wholesale furniture industry, for both retailers and the individual who wants to purchase at discount prices from a large distributor or directly from the manufacturer. As more than one wholesale furniture supplier emphasizes, these companies sell at low prices because they do not have many of the extra expenses that are connected to retail sites. Retail space is more expensive to rent or own, for one thing. Many times, wholesale furniture merchants have lower personnel costs as well.

But don't let the low price of wholesale furniture concern you or mislead you into thinking you are getting a "cheaper" piece of furniture. Much of the wholesale furniture offered by manufacturers and distributors is made with the same fine quality hardwood and veneers, the same top line fabric, by the same craftsmen who make the furniture you see on display in a high-class furniture emporium.

One major difference is that you may not be able to see the wholesale furniture item in person, unless you are fortunate enough to visit a manufacturer's showroom or a distributor's warehouse. But with many top quality suppliers, sales representatives are quite happy to show you full color photos or even direct you to another customer or a retailer that has the item.

One of the key questions to ask when working with wholesale furniture suppliers: What about returning items when there are problems? A few minutes discussing this policy with a representative or reading the Web information will help clarify what you can and cannot expect when problems arise. Tip: Make sure you understand how sales tax is treated, whether you order online or from a manufacturer's outlet. This can make a huge difference in the overall cost of the furniture. Of course, this will generally apply to individual buyers who are not established resellers.

So, when you are moving around in the profitable world of wholesale furniture, you can get truckloads of fine furniture for a mere fraction of the builder's cost. Those who are willing to accept choice truckloads of mixed items can often realize thousands of dollars in profit over time. That may be reason enough for some to stay in the wholesale furniture business.
