The Pros and Cons of Company Location

The location of the company you plan to purchase a wall bed from can be a very influential part of the decision making process. While your decision should be chiefly based upon the wall beds and how they fulfill your personal needs and wants, there can be influential factors regarding a company’s location. Whether you are worried about shipping costs, taxation or the possibility of visiting a showroom, it is important to look into company’s that are both near and far from you to ensure that all of your needs are met.

Showroom Availability

Choosing a company that is locally based near your home offers the possibility of visiting their showroom and viewing the product in person before placing an order. This can be an important factor for those wishing to see exactly what their wall bed will look like, how easy it is to operate and how it will match with their existing furniture.

Shipping Costs

The location of a wall bed company can also affect the shipping costs that you will pay. Shipping costs vary from company to company, as some operate on a case-by-case basis and others offer a flat shipping rate. For company’s operating on a case-by-case basis, the closer you are located to the company the greater the chance that the shipping costs will be lower. For company’s operating on a flat fee shipping rate, you have more flexibility to base your choice solely on the wall bed itself, as your shipping fee will not be affected by your location.

Sales Tax

The application of sales tax to your order is another important element when purchasing a wall bed. If you reside in a state that does not implement a sales tax but are purchasing your bed from a state that does, you may be required to pay tax on your order. Likewise, ordering from a state with no tax may be beneficial to you as a customer, as your order may not be taxed.

It is important to remember that your overall satisfaction with your wall bed is the central goal, and considering a company’s location is just one step in the decision process. Keep coming back for more tips on choosing the company that is right for you.
