Buying Shop Fittings

Before buying shop fittings you must first determine your needs and requirements. A cheaper alternative to buying brand new shop fittings is to purchase them used or second hand.

You must take note however of the quality of these used fittings, since the safety of your product is at stake.

Shop fittings are available with from online stores or walk in stores. There are so many different types to choose from and these ranges from displays, racks, mannequins, wall panels, security gates, sunglass display, gondola, metal shelving’s and many many more.

You must determine the type of store fittings you will need or your store. Take a look at the area mass of the store or shop you plan to install your shop fittings. Also note what type of items you wish to put on display, this will also help you decide on what is the best shop fitting for your store.

Take note of the height, width and overall diameter of the preferred shop fitting. Make sure that when you place it in your shop it will not obstruct any movement. There must be a continuous flow of movement allowed, especially since you will want all your displays to be in plain sight of the customer as well as accessible.

Usually, especially when starting a business or shop, shop owners opt for the cheaper alternative of buying used shop fittings. If there is a local store that sells used fittings then take a look and browse through their items. Otherwise there is always the internet in which you will find several options to choose from. Compare the prices from all of these products and choose accordingly. Through the purchase of used shop fittings you will be able to save plenty of money. Inspect the fitting you wish to purchase and ask about the damages and even the previous owner and what he or shell sold on those fittings (most applicable with shelves), though most of the time these are not as visible when the fitting is stacked up with products.

The same rules to buying new fittings are also applicable to the purchase of used ones. The quality of the products is very important so you should purchase your shop fittings from stores that have at least a limited warranty. This will guarantee to the buyer that the item being purchased is in good condition. You may also ask if the price you pay for the shipping is inclusive of installment or not. This is another way to cut back on expenses, you may simply just install the fittings yourself instead of having the seller do it for you. This is of course as long as you know how to. Otherwise do not risk the safety of your products by attempting to install fittings yourself without professional supervision at least.
