As a plumber, you may shop around for copper fittings and other supplies when taking on a job to ensure that you have everything you need to complete your work. The last thing you want to do, is have to run around to multiple Essex plumbing supplies stores because some of them don’t have the supplies that you need. The likelihood is, over the years you’ll have shopped around and found an Essex plumbing supplies store which best suits your needs and you’ll return again and again whether you need boilers, cylinders or just your day to day plumbing essentials. But how do you find the supplier in the first place and how do you know you are still getting the best products at the best possible prices?

Speak to your colleagues when it comes to the right Essex plumbing supplies store, other people in the business are likely to have similar needs to you so if they all recommend the same place then chances are this is for a reason. Personal recommendations can be a great help, but make sure you check out online reviews as well, to really find out the background of the companies you are going to buy your supplies from.

You will want to choose a supplier who has all the products that you are looking for. From copper fittings to brass foundry and boilers, you want everything under one roof, which is why it pays to do your research beforehand. Call around suppliers or check their website before you make the trip to ensure they have the items that you need. You’ll waste precious time trekking from one supplier to another in search of a particular item but it takes just a few minutes to make a call or click onto a website on your phone.

Find out how long  the supply company have been in business, chances are the suppliers who have been established and have been selling parts for years will have a better idea of your needs than a start-up company. Longer established companies are likely to have better contacts to get in tricky hard to find parts, as well as having the product knowledge, prices and fast delivery, which can be a godsend if you’re stuck on a job.

Plumbing Supplies

How much you spend on your supplies makes a direct correlation to how much profit you make when taking on work. If you make a quote for work and know you’ll need a particular item you’ll want to get the item for as cheap as possible to ensure that you make as much money as possible from the job. At the same time you will want to save money on the items (especially larger ones such as cylinders and boilers) you also want quality items. The last thing you want is to buy an item which is cheaper, but therefore also are much poorer quality, as this may mean the product doesn’t last as long or breaks down regularly, which will reflect badly on you.
