How to buy wholesale furniture
The growth in home working is driving the demand for home office furniture. Similarly the growing trend of renting versus buying a house has driven more competition in the renting market, forcing property owners to source low cost & quality furniture to compete. If you're selling furniture online, this is huge opportunity you can take advantage of.
Here are some tips to buy cheap wholesale furniture with quality:
- Know the duty for the furniture you're importing
The type of material and the size of the furniture will determine the cost of getting it shipped to your country. So do the due diligence of calculating the total duty that you will incur before you spend.
- Buy at the right time
Furniture prices fluctuate throughout the year. You should take note of popular dates where wholesalers clear stocks and refresh stocks. For example, in the U.S. the Fourth of July or Christmas is when furniture stores push to get rid of the last of their inventory and offer the biggest discounts.
- Get joined wood furniture
Furnitures that are joined (not glued or nailed) are sturdier and cheaper.What’s not to like?

Finding trusted suppliers
With all the scams out there online, it can be hard to find trusted suppliers. But there are a few steps you can take to virtually eliminate this problem:
Contact the supplier and verify their address
If they don’t list a phone number or address, keep looking. If they do, call them and Google them to make sure they’re real.
Check your supplier’s reputation and track record
The best suppliers have been in business for 10+ years. They’ll also have customers who will vouch for them. Call their clients and see how they feel about the supplier.
Purchase and inspect their products
Ordering several thousand units without ever seeing the product can be a nightmare, to put things lightly. Avoid this by ordering and inspecting samples for quality and packaging.
Test their customer support
If your supplier’s customer service sucks, it will hurt your own customer service. So test them out before you commit to them.
