As an electrician, a wholesaler forms an important part of your life and business. We have so many wholesalers in the market today such that it can be hard to distinguish the good from the bad ones.
Below are some factors you should consider when choosing a wholesaler
It is important to purchase branded products as you can be sure that they will be fit for purpose and not a fraud. A certain safety is associated with branded products, and this works too for people who are not ready for a change. Wholesalers might provide a range of similar brands . Therefore, you need to look into other factors before settling to a specific wholesaler.
Price is a sensitive factor among electricians when it comes to choosing a wholesaler while wholesalers are happy negotiating and setting different prices for their products at different outlets because they are out to make profits. You should be very careful as an electrician not to settle on a wholesaler charging more than what is considered fair in the electronics market. Make sure to always get value of your cash
After checking on price, another important factor to look at is the staff knowledge on their job. Are they aware of what they are selling? They should be able to even advice electricians on what they need. So before choosing a wholesaler, be very keen to know how knowledgeable and experienced the staff is.
Electricians today are very busy and do not have to queue at the wholesalers premises the first thing in the morning to purchase stuff. Instead, they make orders either manually or using the computer for the wholesaler to deliver. This is where the issue of delivery speed comes in, will the wholesaler deliver your order at the right time, or you need to keep on reminding them and even lack materials to use for your job? A late deliverer is a big no when selecting a wholesaler.
Availability of products
One of the most annoying experiences with a wholesaler is delivering what you not ordered for, or going to collect items you had agreed with them to collect on a certain day only to find that they are not available. This is major as a result of the wholesaler not having enough stock. It is, therefore, important to know if the wholesaler you are about to choose qualify on this factor.
