Enter the term Wholesale pallet or liquidation pallet into a Google search and you will receive thousands upon thousands of links to all kinds of companies ready to take your money. Who do you buy from? Who is honest and reputable? If you’re just getting started in the world of wholesale liquidations, how can you research and cross-check various liquidation companies from the comfort of your home?
Ok, let me explain a bit further with today’s post:
Resources from the audio post:
RipOffreport.Com – Online database/forum where people can voice and open up communication with transactions that go wrong. Not just limited to wholesale companies, RipOffreport collects complaints from all kinds of businesses. As I state in the audio, a couple of complaints for a company that has been in business for years is not necessarily an indication of a suppliers honesty or quality of products. Remember the old saying, “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.” Some people are never happy.
ComplaintBoard.com – ComplaintBoard is a service offered to consumer to submit their dissatisfaction with any company, about variety of different products.
I hope you find some of the techniques I use helpful in your search for reputable suppliers. As I said in the audio, this supplier research is not science, but rather a few simples steps that just might reveal information that will make you think twice before making a purchase.
The last piece of advice I’ll offer is this…start with a small purchase. While it’s true you save money buying in larger bulk quantities, smaller purchases help you become better acquainted with prospective suppliers and what to expect with liquidation merchandise in general.
