Carpet Buying Questions & Answers

By Alan Fletcher - 30-Year Carpet Expert & Consumer Advocate

 

 

So how would you know if you were getting a good deal on your carpet or other flooring? 

 

A. It's not easy to know if you are getting a fair and square deal because there is not a Carpet Blue Book. There are no consumer flooring magazines.  My Free consumer information websites offer the best and most complete information to help consumers obtain a square deal on carpet. 

Until now, all carpet buying consumers could hope to do was to shop around from one store to another to hopefully find another similar or identical products to be able to compare prices. It is very time consuming and not easy to compare by any means.

 

 

What about the great offers of Free Padding or Free Installation with my carpet purchase?

 

A. Its easy to fall for those "FREE" gimmicks! It is very common for retailers to "hide" those FREE  items in the price you pay for the carpet. Make no mistake, they know if they can lure you into their store, then they'll have a good chance to convince you to buy carpet from them...Beware, you can spend hundreds more than you need to.... You can get a good deal on carpet but you need to get informed!

What about the banner hanging outside the carpet store that says, "Wholesale to the public?" or Factory direct prices? Is this really true?

 

A. No, their statements are just a play on words. Carpet retailers are middlemen, they have a brick and mortar store to operate and employees to pay. All these signs, banners and other gimmicks are used to lure you into their store. Once you go inside, they will use every trick in the book to get you to select one of their products and buy from them. Beware, you can save hundreds by avoiding these type of retailers.

The truth is, there really is no free lunch!  Anything offered to you for free will be charged to you one way or another, or else the free item is not worth having. 

 

Often, a retail flooring salesperson will ask you to feel how soft the carpet is with your hand. dig your fingers into the pile. Feel how thick and luxurious it is? Perhaps they will have you walk on a swatch of carpet with a square piece of pad underneath it to show you how good it feels underfoot. 

 

These common sales techniques are just like the test drive at the car dealership. If they can get you to imagine in your mind how great the carpet would look and feel in your home then they know you will buy it. 

 

You need to check out some carpet samples and take them home for a few days! This will give you the opportunity to consider and compare!

 

How a carpet feels and looks when it is new has absolutely no bearing on whether or not it is a quality product, if it will last, if it will clean easily, and especially if it is the right carpet for you....
