You can save money when you buy remodeling materials from Internet stores, but since returning the materials requires shipping fees, can this work if you’re the type of person who needs to see it, and feel it, in order to know if it will fit well into your bathroom design?
The biggest advantage of Internet retailers is they carry a very large selection which you can visual scan via their websites. In 20 minutes to you compare hundreds of different sinks, or faucets, or toilets, etc.
The biggest disadvantage is returning the item (or items) if you decide they’re not right for your remodel requires shipping. Here’s an idea for how this becomes practical:
- On the website of the Internet retailer, you can determine the size of the shipping package and it’s weight, as well as the return policy of the company (you’ll need the zip code you might be returning it to).
- Armed with that information, you then go to the post office website to find out what it costs to ship that package from your home to their return center.
If the cost of the product from the Internet retailer plus the cost of return shipping is less than the cost of the product at a local brick and mortar, your financial risk goes away, and you should feel free to order it.
