    Run rate orders

    Hi guys,

    I've got a question for you. Where do you go for your run rate day to day orders?

    The reason i ask is that a lot of you come to me for your project work etc (which i appriciate so thanks for that) but not for your smaller orders so i wanted to see who your using now and how i could tempt you away

    As you know, i give everyone free shipping and i'll always try and beat your current prices. Hopefully we can start doing more day to day stuff too

    Thanks in advance guys

    Luke

    Thing is though it's not about beating other prices but about providing better pricing the first time.

    Well for me it's like that anyway.

    Same here (not related to you but all suppliers)

    We go on first prices for normal small stuff, no point wasting time and money going back and forth hundreds of quotes etc etc to save £1 off the end price.

    Good point well made.

    Well i should be cheaper most of the time anyway because of the free shipping and the fact that i personally do all the buying so i'm able to haggle to get better prices. However im realistic and i know that other companies may have offers on etc so it's hard to be the cheapest first all the time. But what i will say is that the more you use me, the cheaper i can make your prices.

    I'm all about the bigger picture too so as well as getting the best prices, the service you'll get will be great too. Credit terms, deliveries, returns and extras will all be customised to your needs.

    I get what you & @Steve21 are saying, all i'm saying is give me a chance and i think you'll be impressed. Anything big, small or whatever, just drop me an email or give me a call and we'll go from there.

    Sound like a plan????

    Plus, lets say I quote you on some toners and you buy them, then the next week/month or whenever you want the same again, just send me the order without asking for a quote and, unless my cost dramatically changes so that I'm making a loss (which it almost never does) I'll just get it sent out to you.

    On the rare occasion that it has changed, I'll just call or email you and we'll sort it out between us. Nice and easy

    Ha, I know some of you guys do! Just not all of you so I wanted to see what I could do to change that. Maybe then everyone would be as happy as you @witch!

    Regards the chocolate pizza, you'll have to keep your fingers crossed for the Summer Promo

    Morning guys,

    Just a thought, would it help if i came out to see you? Nothing formal, just a meeting and a bit of lunch (on me obviously). So you know who you're dealing with rather than just a voice or an email address.

    Are you all alllowed visitors?

    Luke
