To buy leather furniture direct from the factory, first check if the manufacturer offers direct shipment to end users, and then place your order over the phone, via the Web, or by visiting the factory or dealers. While some manufacturers offer custom-designed solutions and ship them directly to customers, other manufacturers produce their furniture exclusively for independent retailers. Contact the manufacturer’s customer support, or visit its website to ascertain whether or not the service is on offer.
Most manufacturers’ websites provide information about their distribution channels, including dealers. Examining the business model of the manufacturer as presented on its website helps you establish whether the manufacturer offers direct shipment. Contacting the customer support personnel or visiting the factory are also viable ways of finding information about the entity’s sales channels.
Many leather furniture manufacturers that offer custom designs ship the products directly to customers. Custom-produced leather furniture pieces may be more expensive than ready-made pieces, but they bypass one or more stopping points in the distribution channel. In some cases, direct shipment reduces the overall cost of the furniture due to the reduction in storage costs. Factories make custom-styled pieces after receiving orders. To ensure the manufacturer works on your request and ships it to your location, complete the ordering process, which involves submitting your requirements and paying.
