QandA / Policy
for more information!
do I get on your weekly mailing list? Our
weekly mailing list is a free service. It is however confidential
and can only be used for the person that it is sent to. To
get on the mailing list, just go to the weekly section of
our main web-site page and click on the mailing list option.
Please read the rules.
I advertise your goods on my web site? No.
There is to be no public advertising of any of our products.
It took us many years to get where we are today, and we have
several agreements with large companies not to market these
goods against their
your email for daily updates of our salvage inventory
I choose to buy from someone else down the line, is it okay? Sure.
You have no ties to us, but, before investing a whole lot with someone
else, you may want to run it by us. If it sounds good, we will tell
you. Yes, that's right! We will give you free advise on what to
look for or what to ask. We want to have you as one of our clients
for the long run, so we will help you in any way we can.
say I am buying from you, and I find another guy selling the same
thing you have in all details for less? Please
let us know. We will try to match or come close to the price if
possible. Please keep in mind that others may offer goods, but cannot
provide consistently, or it may be a load that has been picked over.
In any case, please let us know.
I fly down and inspect the load if I want to before purchase? In
most cases, Yes, if the merchandise is in one of our warehouses.
Some Department Stores do not like tourists for security and time-consuming
do you handle Exporting Items? We offer
this unique service to our customers. SalvageSalvage can handle
your export shipments to all major ports
in the world. We have strong representation throughout the world
and can handle all your containers in a quick and efficient manner.
We handle everything.
Door To Door
seems that some of the Department Store Loads are "Blind" ? This
is true, some of them are not inventoried, nor do they have a manifest.
Such loads are sold to us by the truckload & sometimes by the pallet.
In this Q and A, I cannot mention Department store names, but, if
I could, you would see that many of the top Department Stores sell
off their salvage loads this way. This
is not a bad thing, but a very good thing. If they added up their
costs per truckload, our prices would be much higher.
I have to go through you and a dozen other people to get the good
stuff? No, In 95% of the cases we are
direct with the Department Store, manufacturer, or warehouse in
which the items are coming from. We rarely advertise any items offered
to us via the Internet. We use our own sources and most likely will
always stay that way.
there any limits on the size of order? Being
that much of what we sell is salvage or closeouts, the limit to
the size of the order depends on what's left. Lets say a customer
wanted 2 truckloads of merchandise and only 1 was available. We
would have them pay for 1 and a week or 2 later, when we have another,
we would contact the buyer and let them know the other load is here
and ready for them. On some loads, we can offer 6 month contracts
so that the buyer can have a steady supply.
we have any contracts to sign? Yes & No.
If a buyer is purchasing Department Store
goods with us, they must read and sign a paper that they would
agree to, for instance, remove the Department Store tags before
resale, and the like. As far as our company goes, no, you can buy
a load from us once or as many times as you like. We do not make
much off of one truckload. Our money is made from customers coming
back and buying often. We try as best as we can to offer high quality
loads at the right price so that our customers can make money, like
our service, and keep coming back.
