When you’re shopping for floor paint, particularly for use in industrial and commercial premises, it’s important to use a supplier you can trust. So, what should you look for when selecting one? Let’s look at the factors you may want to take into consideration.
The Location Of Your Supplier
If you’re based in the UK, it makes sense to buy your paint from a British company. Not only will you save money on delivery charges, but they’ll be more likely to sell paints that comply with UK and EU safety standards.
Make sure you choose a supplier with firm roots in the industry. As specialist industrial paint manufacturers, we understand exactly what our customers need when it comes to external floor and other paint products.
Where Their Products Are Made
If a supplier sells products manufactured by other companies, they won’t have control over the quality of those paints. We make all of our paints in our Wolverhampton factory, so we know that every batch we produce has been made to the same exacting standards.
The Amount Of Information They Provide To Customers
You can get an idea of how much expertise a paint supplier has by looking at the information they provide online. For example, if their website includes colour charts, it suggests that they are confident shoppers will like the shades they offer, while if they produce ‘how to’ features and practical guides, it shows that they know what they are talking about and want to help their customers out.
The Size Of Their Product Range
If a supplier offers an array of products, it can indicate that their paints sell well. However, look for a company that specialises in certain areas, rather than trying to be all things to all people, as they are more likely to have an in-depth understanding of their market.
Whether They Can Offer You Bespoke Solutions
If a supplier is able to provide you with paint tailored to your needs, such as products in shades that aren’t on their standard colour charts, it’s a good sign that they are experts in their field.
How Competitive Their Prices Are
While choosing paint based purely on cost isn’t necessarily the best thing to do if you want a high-quality product, reputable suppliers will ensure their products are competitively priced. What’s more, when you buy paint directly from a manufacturer like TA Industrial Paints, you won’t be paying the mark-ups applied by middlemen.
How Easy Their Products Are To Buy
If a supplier has a simple ordering process and a swift delivery service, it means they are focussed on meeting their customers’ needs. Purchasing products from TA Paints is easy, thanks to our user-friendly online ordering system, and your paint will usually arrive in a few days.
