Wholesale Tools

With most users of tools, the quality of materials and construction is of prime importance. This may be even more important when it comes to wholesale tools. Of course it depends on the motivation behind the purchase and sale of wholesale tools, but most people who work in this field agree that a cheaply made tool is often worse than no tool at all.

As more than one wholesale tools merchant emphasizes, there are numerous companies now offering tools on Web sites as well as through print advertising and catalogs. In many cases, the tools are the same brand. So what sets one wholesale tools supplier apart from another? Price is, of course, one of the key factors. But there is more to it than mere numbers.

First of all, many a reliable, established wholesale tools merchant will offer only quality tools in a true wholesale system. This means that the supplier will work exclusively with retail shops, mechanics and other professionals, not with individual buyers from the general public. If, in fact, the public can purchase from these suppliers, the prices will still be discounted from retail, though not necessarily at true wholesale level. In addition, the tools will still be top-quality, usually brand name products. Tip: Quite a number of suppliers offer their discount prices to all, believing that it is a privilege to have any new customers.

Other factors to consider when assessing the supplier of wholesale tools:

*Shipping costs or free shipping
*New inventory, including real improvements in tools
*Support and assistance after the sale is complete
*Guarantees and warranties honored without hassle

With any wholesale venture it would be good to understand, from the start, the minimum order policy of the wholesale tools supplier, as well as to understand the shipping and payment policies. These can vary from one merchant to the next. Some suppliers have no minimum order requirement. Others, especially those who sell exclusively to retail stores, professional mechanics and so on, have reasonable minimum order levels.

Some wholesale tools suppliers use a method called "drop ship." This can be an efficient way to do business, if the wholesale distributor/manufacturer you order from is reliable and accurate. If so, your customer receives the products directly, after placing the order through you. This often eliminates the need for the middleman (you) to have a large inventory or warehouse facilities. The cost for providing this method is figured into the price paid to the factory or major distributor. With reliable sources, this system can significantly lower the financial risks of the wholesale tools business.

Perhaps it would help to look at some examples of the great prices a supplier of wholesale tools might offer:

*A 24-volt cordless drill suitable for professional or home use – about $50, one-third the cost of a similar drill purchased at a large retail store.
*An adjustable torque wrench, dual scale – about one-third the price of similar retail wrenches.
*Industrial strength power wrench - $67, compared to about $200.

Prices such as these are what draw numerous entrepreneurs to the wholesale tools business.
