Some large distributors stock in excess of one hundred different carpet ranges which include as many as twelve different colour ways. This means that the overall stocking level for a single distributor could be as much as one thousand two hundred rolls of carpet in stock.
The average roll is twenty five metres in length by the standard four metre width. This would then equate to one hundred and twenty thousand square metres.
The quality of the carpet ranges would run from products which are two pounds sterling per square metre to twenty pounds sterling per square metre. This is all dependent on the type of material, quality, thickness and backing.
Some carpets will have foam, felt or Hessian backing and are made of nylons, polypropylene or wool content fibres.
So, What is the Key to Buying Cheap Flooring?
All the manufacturers may make surplus to requirements or may inject the wrong dye quantities into the manufacturing process. This will leave them with non-standard colours and qualities. These products are known as “specials.”
Also, through faults in the manufacturing process, a carpet may be made sub-standard. This is known as a “B grade” product. This could happen for one of many reasons: line faults showing running down the width or the length of the carpet; bald patches running throughout the carpet; carpet pile tufts missing and insufficient amounts of adhesive used for bonding the backing to the broad loom.
The manufacturer offers these products at a discounted price to the normal named ranges. They are of the same quality and density, with all the same specifications, however, are slightly different in some way.
The wholesalers purchase negotiate a job-lot deal and sell the specials directly to the retail carpet outlets. The retailers are keen to buy these products and hold them in stock as they will receive a fifty per cent saving on trade price, but they will only reduce the retail price by ten per cent, thus making extra profits.
Some carpet retailers specialise solely in marketing and sales of “B grade” and “special” lines. They are known by the wholesalers as “stockists.” The large stockists of these products are informed on a first come first served basis and the wholesalers are quick to offer all the purchase stock to the first retailer to buy.
The less stock a retailer is able to take to purchase, the less chance they will have of obtaining the best selling colours as the largest stockists clear the popular colours first.
To obtain these great deals, a good-working and trustworthy relationship has to be developed between wholesaler and retailer. These cheap flooring products are obtained by all wholesalers throughout the year. Ask the company representative for details.
