Keeping Clean on a Budget
Finding that one stop shop for cleaning supplies can be difficult. There are thousands of different suppliers, options, and price ranges, and it can be difficult to know what’s right for you and your business. You can always order online in bulk, but wouldn’t you rather at least work with a supplier that provides real customer service advice to help you find the best cleaning supplies for you?
When you’re looking for online cleaning supplies, particularly suppliers catering to the restaurant and catering industry, you’ll want a company with experience, and one that knows how to manage both the front and back ends.
What Can I Get Online?
Aside from quality materials, you’ll have the benefit of dedicated customer service that will help you find the right products that you need for your business, at the right cost. Whether you want to stock up on your janitorial supplies or you’re a homeowner looking into upping your cleaning game with some top of the line equipment, you can look online for great deals.
Some of the categories of supplies available online are:
- Cleaning Chemicals
- Hygiene Paper
- Cleaning Equipment
- Floor Cleaning Tools and Equipment
- Window Cleaning Supplies
- Waste Bins and Bin Bags
- Health and Safety Equipment
- Fire Safety Equipment
- First Aid Supplies
- Safety Signs
- Winter Ice Removal
- Hand Wash and Soap
- Repair and Maintenance Equipment
- Electrical Supplies
- Light Bulbs
- Batteries and Chargers
- Security Supplies
- Plumbing Supplies
Can’t I Just Buy in Bulk at the Store?
You can, but buying online gives you a wide variety of options and brands to suit your needs. Big box retailers or wholesalers might be able to offer competitive rates, but they won’t be able to offer the same variety that shopping online does. Shopping for cleaning supplies online allows you to go to one place, instead of multiple stores to find your supplies, and it also allows you the ability to sort items by price point and brand. Online shops also tend to offer lower rates on supplies and will ship them directly to your door.
Some companies even have showrooms, so you can look at the different supplies they offer and speak with staff who can help you find the right products. Showrooms allow consumers to test products first hand and see how various tools and machines work. They can be a convenient location to pick up supplies or be your first stop towards online shopping. If you’re not a fan of any of these options, you can always request a paper catalogue or look at a virtual one.
The other great benefit of shopping for cleaning supplies online is that many websites offer credit accounts, so you can order based on the need and pay later on a billing cycle. This is perfect for companies just starting out who might need more materials quickly and not necessarily be able to afford it all at once. While accounts are subject to approval, you get the benefit of a designated account manager, and exclusive discounts for becoming part of the retailer’s family.
