Unless the FMCG, domestic appliances are not being replaced too often. Who buys a new fridge or a dishwasher once a year? That’s why, a retailer selling these goods cannot count on high volumes.
That is why, retailers and wholesalers of kitchen appliances, especially major appliances, are always looking for some alternative possibilities of purchasing the merchandise. They never earn on the number of the deals, because their profits come from the margins. It means that buying cheap wholesale goods give them a required range of possible prices, which can be easily adjusted to the current situation on the market. If the sales go down, they can decrease the prices, and still earn a reasonable percent of the price.
Nevertheless, it is always good to have some alternatives. One of these is bankrupt stock kitchen equipment, incl. major appliances and small domestic appliances. But before one will start searching for the wholesale deals of this sort, a few facts have to be mentioned:
1) Bankrupt stock include not only brand new stock. Some lines of appliances will be of course pristine, untouched merchandise, ready for retail sales, but it is neither guaranteed nor frequent. Although used or damaged major appliances might still be sold or at least used as spare parts, not all suppliers have facilities like their own repairs’ centre. It is great to have it of course, but it requires some investments first, to have benefits in the future.
2) Bankrupt stock is not always sold under warranty. Some of the white goods wholesalers will grant it, but the other won’t. Nevertheless, the most probable scenario, is when a certain store or wholesale goes broke, not the entire brand. In these cases, warranties remain valid, as the reseller of the appliances is not a warranter.
Inspite of these facts, it is still worth having a few bankrupt stock wholesalers on the list of potential suppliers. They can supply kitchen appliances at bargain wholesale prices, but they simply will not be able to meet one’s requirements all the time and with every stock they have and will have.
