      Hello fellow members,
      I am interested in your comments regarding a new business that I am about tojoin. I have spent over 20 years in the wholesale plumbing supply businessnd I know how important it is to the trade to get delivery of product on a
      timely basis. Most supply houses can’t have everything on the shelf, and many don’t focus well on the “special order” business. That’s where I come in. If your supply house doesn’t have the item you need, would it be helpful
      to you and/or your staff to have a website and a toll free 800 # where you could go to to get that product ordered and shipped out that same day?
      Ground UPS would be approximately $10.00 for a faucet or two, and next day delivery would be available for $20.00. Sinks, lavs, whirlpools etc would
      have a fixed freight amount.

      Some of the product lines available are: Kohler, American Standard, Delta, Moen, Grohe, Hansgrohe, Hansa, Chicago, Sloan…… and many more!!

      What do you think??

      I think this is a good idea. __ YES __NO

      I would order from a source like this. __ YES __ NO

      Any comments here would be helpful and appreciated:

      Thanks,
      Jim

      The rason I agree with Bill completly is one of my supply houses is a guy right next door to my office and already does this AS ANY good supplier would do.

      Today with the Internet especially E bay and home centers there is no reason for anyone having to wait for parts.

      Even custom made Cast Iron drains I was able to get (Pricey items) BUT nevertheless possible. I am sure ANY MANUFACTURER will sell to me if I am willing to pay the right price.
      Service is the key and no I do not need a middle man to make a phone call for me or my supply houses. Thanks,
      Jim
      your welcome Sylvan
