Don’t be fooled by tricks and promises from the big box stores and other companies on TV. Here’s the TRUTH about some of the common “deals” they offer.
Trick #1: BUY 1 ROOM AND GET 2 ROOMS FREE!!!
You will find that there is a very limited selection that is priced 2 to 3 times what a similar product would cost, PLUS tons of small print with exclusion after exclusion and “not included” sections.
Trick #2: BUY TODAY AND WE WILL INSTALL IT TOMORROW!
Limited selection at HIGH prices. HARD PRESSURE sales approach. Huge discounts if you say NO!
Trick #3: 70% OFF
They are just making up numbers! Their strategy? Jack the prices up by 300% and then come down by “70%” or some other enticing number.
Trick #4: WE WILL BRING OUR SHOWROOM TO YOU!
At Brentwood Carpets Flooring America, we have a 10,000 sq ft showroom. They have a van! They will show you only HIGH MARGIN products. Come to Brentwood Carpets Flooring America before or after dealing with one of these companies, and you will see why we will help you buy a better product at a better price!
Trick #5: FREE INSTALLATION OR WHOLE HOUSE FOR $39.99!
How do they do it? Easy. The charges are hidden.
EXAMPLE: If the regular price of an 8 lb. Rebond pad is $3.50 per square yard ($0.39 per sq. ft.) you would expect it to be cheaper when there is a sale. On Page 3 of a contract from a major big box home center, the price was $9.00 per square yard, and buyers HAD to buy the pad to get the Free Installation!
At Brentwood, we are members of organizations such as:
- The World Floor Covering Association
- Local Chambers of Commerce, and
- The Better Business Bureau.
It’s always in the customer’s interest to ensure their carpet and flooring provider belongs to these vital associations.
Bottom Line: If it sounds too good to be true, it usually is.
