Wholesale windows can be purchased directly from the window manufacturer or a distributor. A minimum quantity of windows may need to be ordered. Price breaks occur at certain quantity levels that vary based on the company.
While some companies may state that they offer wholesale pricing, true wholesale pricing is typically only available to other businesses. An individual can sometimes get a better price than usual by purchasing many windows at once. A cash payment rather than financing the windows can also influence the price. Sometimes window companies, such as Anderson Windows, can help offer contractors and property developers a better price than typical retail pricing due to the size of the order and terms.
Receiving an order of windows sooner rather than later can result in a higher overall cost. A local window and glass retailer may be able to offer a cost very close to their own. Larger building supply stores can help source the best windows for a big project and tend to be able to offer lower pricing than smaller firms. Customers can contact a window manufacturer directly to inquire about the possibility of lower pricing for projects. Additionally, check with multiple window providers to compare pricing.
