Tips and Tricks of Buying Liquidation Pallets

Liquidation Pallets

People have been buying liquidation pallets for a long time. Yes, even before the internet was birthed this was a process that took place at in-person auctions and events. Nowadays, there are hundreds of places and/or sites that you can purchase liquidation pallets from.

Your job is to learn which wholesalers and products work best for you and then exclusively pursue those opportunities. Just like everything else, this is a lot easier said than done. However, the best teacher is experience and your only option before the experience is to learn from the successes and failures of others.

One of the most important steps that you can take is to work with a wholesaler that has a trusted brand, is upfront with their pricing, and offers clear policies regarding shipping and returns. After you have chosen a partner to work with, the next step is to determine your expected return on investment.

This number will act as a guide when purchasing products and well as deciding how much you are willing to spend on shipping, marketing, etc. Lastly, it is important to choose products that can be easily resold and/or remarketed. After all, you want to be able to move your products just as quickly as you purchase them.

This allows you to quickly recoup your investment and reinvest in more products, business infrastructure, and marketing efforts.

Work With The Right Wholesaler

Choosing the right wholesaler can be a “make or break” moment for your business. If you choose a wholesaler that is known for late shipments, defective products, and bad customer service, it can negatively affect your profits and reputation. Though you are essentially buying products at below market value, you should still ensure that they are quality products.

If you are new to purchasing liquidation pallets, you can utilize chat rooms, blog post, online videos, and word of mouth to learn more. Furthermore, having an understanding of your chosen wholesaler’s return policies can help you to make a more informed decision.

No one wants to buy a liquidated pallet of inventory that they can’t sell. This is totally antithetical to the idea of turning a profit.

Determine Expected Profits Before Purchasing

As a warning, you will not always get this right. No matter what type of business you choose to pursue, you will make mistakes. However, you can still set your intentions and make every attempt at limiting yourself from costly mistakes in the beginning.

Eight out of 10 businesses fail because they did not execute their business plan or didn’t have one. Determining how much you can spend and what you would like your ROI to be can help to guide you in choosing the right wholesaler, products, marketing plan, retail outlets, etc.

Find Products That Can be Easily Resold and Remarketed

This step may take some creativity. For instance, you may purchase costumes from a Halloween store and remarket them as Carnival costumes. Another example could involve purchasing winter clothes from a North American outlet at the end of the season and reselling them to South American customers during their winters.

As you can see, there are a plethora of ways to remarket and resell products. However, it is important that you conduct your market research and have your plan in place before you make your purchase.
