It’s difficult to remember how challenging sourcing materials from plumbing trade suppliers could be before online stores came along. Now of course, the internet has completely changed how plumbers, and other trades, source their supplies.
In case you have forgotten, here is a quick round up of some of the benefits we now take for granted.
They are open 24 hours a day
Ordering goods is more convenient than it ever was. You can make or check orders at any time of the day or night. Also you make orders on any device, including your smart phone. So no need to wait to make an order, you can order what you want straight away.
Huge Range of Stock
The major advantage of online plumbing trade suppliers is the huge range of stock they can carry. You’ll find everything you’ll ever need (and lots you won’t) in the inventory of some of the largest online companies. If stock happens to be unavailable at the time you need to order, the range they carry means it’s likely they will offer a substitute. Alternatively, you can call them to find out when stock will be in.
Able to Track Deliveries
When you make an order, you are advised of an expected delivery date, and you can often track your deliveries so you know where they are. Often companies can text you to let you know what time they are arriving so you can plan your workload even more accurately.
If an online store has a high street presence, you can choose to pick up your orders in your local store.
Online Stores Offer Great Benefits
The online store has become so integral to how we do business it’s often easy to forget just how easy online ordering and fulfilment can be. If you use an online store with a high street presence there is the advantage of even greater flexibility.
