Why Choose FL Home Supply Over the Big-Box Stores

September 10, 2016

No matter what home improvement project you’re preparing for, finding the right place for materials can be a big decision. And although some choose to purchase from the “big box” stores, there are definite benefits to purchasing from other construction materials companies, such as FL Home Supply. Here are a few:

  1. Big-box stores can be overwhelming.
    For many, going into a big-box store means feeling confused and overwhelmed with all the options available. Because of this, many people end up making poor decisions or buying much more than they came in for. By being able to make purchases online, you can search for and find exactly what you’re looking for without the temptation of buying items you don’t really need.

  2. Big-box stores can’t offer the personalized attention you deserve.
    With big-box stores, it can be difficult to get the help you need when picking out your project materials, as it’s common for experienced staff to get cut and replaced with automation. With places like FL Home Supply, you’ll have the opportunity to get individualized attention and excellent customer service from a highly experienced team (with more than 100 years of experience).

  3. Big-box stores make customers transport their own materials.
    Unfortunately, many big-box stores require customers to “cash and carry” their items, leaving you to ensure you have the right vehicle to transport it with, the proper man-power to lift heavy objects, etc. FL Home Supply offers convenient home deliveries that are both quick and easy so you don’t have to worry about injuring yourself (or even lifting a finger) in the process of bringing your purchases home.

  4. Most products at big-box stores are overpriced.
    These stores typically utilize pricing methods that trick homeowners into believing they are getting the lowest price if they act quickly. However, the truth of the matter is that these products tend to be overpriced most of the time and only slightly reduced for brief amounts of time per year. With places like FL Home Supply, you’ll get fair, straightforward pricing that’s both affordable and based on current local market costs.

  5. Big-box stores tend to push sales on customers for products they don’t need.
    Even if you do go into a big-box store knowing exactly what you want, it’s sometimes hard to resist when an employee tries to upsell you. This happens often when the salesperson gives you all the details about why one product is better than the other, that one will last longer than another, etc. With Fl Home Supply, not only will you get personalized service, but we’ll give you as much information as you ask for so you can make an educated decision for yourself.

Additionally, FL Home Supply offers plenty of free online materials to help you plan your project with ease, including checklists, information-rich blogs, an in-house designer center for creating fully customized basic renderings, and more.
