The world of second-hand furniture is a market full of fascinating opportunities for those who want to buy good quality furniture at a price that’s quite reasonable. However, if you’re looking to buy from an established seller, it can sometimes be quite difficult to know what to look for. If you’re intending to buy from a wholesaler or retailer then you can use the following pointers to ensure that you get value for money.
Buy direct from the store and see if there are any returns. If the seller does return your items in a damaged state, you should check to see if there’s a good policy in place to reimburse you for the cost of replacing or repairing your items. Unfortunately, there are some sellers who will try to pass on goods that are not in as good a condition as they should be.
If you can, inspect the goods on the first visit to the store before buying. You’ll need to inspect all of the goods and ensure that they are in good condition. If you find any signs of wear and tear, make sure that you explain this to the seller and ask them to provide you with a full and honest description of the contents of your order. You will also want to ensure that the seller has a return policy that you’re happy with before you place your order.
If you’re looking for a good policy for your purchase, ask for one at the time of the purchase. A good policy is something that will cover you for any fault or damage that happen to your furniture within the warranty period. A good policy is also likely to cover major repair costs if your item becomes broken beyond repair.
It’s a good idea to ask if they offer a guarantee. Most wholesalers have guarantees but it’s always a good idea to ensure that you’re not going to be left without any furniture due to something that you’ve done to your item. It’s also a good idea to ask if they can offer a 30 day guarantee to cover any loss during this period of time.
It’s worth asking how long the seller has been selling goods and if they have an overall condition checker. An overall condition checker will help you to assess the overall condition of the furniture you’re considering. Having this tool is an excellent way to protect yourself against faulty goods.
It’s always a good idea to ask if they have been sold by a member of the community, such as a local authority or builder’s association. A supplier with such accreditation will allow you to be sure that the goods that you’re purchasing are of a high standard.
It’s a good idea to ensure that the seller has a written return policy. This means that the seller will take back your goods in the same condition that they were when you bought them from them. The good news is that many sellers will also offer a no hassle return service in the event that your item does become damaged, so you won’t have to go through the hassle of trying to repair or replace your item.
Ask about the security measures in place to protect you if your items are stolen. Some sellers have anti-theft locks on their premises, whereas others will allow you to use the same locks you use to access your own home.
Ask about the condition of the room where you’ll be placing your order. A good seller will do their best to keep the room clean and tidy.
Ask about the staff. You will want to ensure that the staff are friendly and know what they’re doing. With many new suppliers, you may be required to complete a credit check in order to ensure that you’re getting a good price for your items.
With a good buy, and some work done, you can be assured that you’re receiving the very best value for your money and you’re investing in a great product from a good second hand store. It’s a great feeling to look at second hand furniture and the designs that you find can truly bring elegance and class to your home.
