Are you looking for one of the most reliable hotel furniture suppliers for your new hotel? If so, then you have come to the right place. I have been the part of the hospitality industry since long and own a hotel in one of the busiest areas of the city. What you are looking for today, was also one of my major concerns when I planned to own a hotel. Even now when planning renovations I need furniture suppliers. This article is based on my personal experiences on how I found and selected the best. So, it might help you, as well.
How I got the names and contact details of the suppliers?
While searching for hotel furniture suppliers, the first thing I did is contacted my friends, some relatives and some of my old office colleagues. I have heard somewhere that word-of-mouth references work sometimes. So, I started with it only. Although I got very few recommendations, that was enough in regard to the first attempt. Then I leafed through some home improvement magazines and the Yellow Pages specific to my state. There I got a significant number of contacts. Lastly, I searched through the World Wide Web and you won’t believe I got hundreds of contact details. The best part was I got the web address of many of the suppliers. So, you might understand that how useful a website can be when it comes to gather relevant information.
How I made my search easy and simple?
After I have created a list of furniture suppliers, I sorted it down into three categories. The first category included the names of the suppliers who sold new furniture. The second category listed the one who sold old and second-hand pieces of furniture. The third and the last one included those furniture suppliers who were specialist in both new and old furniture. This categorization helped me to keep my search simple. After that, I visited their websites one by one to look for the items I needed. Wait! There is one important thing I would like to tell you before I start telling you about the things to consider before selecting a supplier. That is – I had already prepared a list of the furniture I needed to buy. It saved my time. So, you should also do the same.
How I selected the best?
Now, let’s move on to the next segment. Here I will tell you about some of the most important things to consider when it comes to selecting one of the best hotel furniture suppliers. Firstly, I browsed through their websites to check out if they showcased the products I needed or no. Secondly, I looked at their price quotes. Some suppliers also had a section on their website that recommended the visitors to fill out a form for quotes. I filled them out. After I have got the quotations from almost every supplier I compared them and at last I selected the one I found more suitable for my hotel. Do not forget to check out their credentials.
