If you are building a new home, or even if you are just renovating and updating your current home, you will probably want to find distributors for the products that you need. Purchasing your materials form wholesale manufacturing and distribution companies can help keep your costs to a minimum while allowing you to select from some of the best materials you can find in any warehouse or local retail store. The cabinet distributors that you can find online often offer extra discounts for purchasing through them on the Internet, so feel free to do your own research even if you have contracting company already hired. Chances are, their cabinet distributors can offer you discounts as well, but you want to have done all of your own research so you know what a great price is and what discounts are merely bringing your cost to a very standard price.
Cabinet distributors may be a little difficult to find depending on what you are looking for and where you need your materials shipped to. If you have a friend that has recently built a new home or remodeled their kitchen, they can likely point you in the right direction as to where you can get your new cabinets. At the very least, your friend will probably be able to suggest a list of cabinet distributors for you that you can then research yourself and select from. Depending on the area that you live in, this list may be quite long or quite short. For example, some cabinet distributors do not like to ship to Hawaii or Alaska. The ones that do will obviously have to charge a fairly hefty shipping fee due to the cost of shipping and the long distances.
Your contracting company’s cabinet distributors are usually more local manufacturing and distribution businesses, and your contractor will have already developed a great reputation with this particular business. Cabinet distributors like giving discounts to a repeat customer and this is how you can get a great discount through your contractor alone. You still want to do your own research, however, because your contractor may still tag on additional fees in an effort to make extra money off of you even though the distribution company is giving them a discount.
Cabinet distributors are very helpful. If you have any questions or concerns with your cabinets or their shipping, do not hesitate to call a customer service professional and ask about what is worrying you. Cabinets are a big purchase and you want to fully understand all of the information before you make your selection.
