There are two main ways to buy pavers today. The first is to go to the building supply store and purchase them. The second is to order pavers online. Internet shopping is very convenient. You can do it from anywhere at any time, even if the store is closed. That being said, there are some drawbacks that could convince builders to buy in person rather than over the web.
Online Ordering vs. In Person Buying
There are many appealing benefits to ordering pavers online. You can search for products just by typing in a few keywords or browsing a website. There’s absolutely no travel time because orders can be paid for online and shipped to your location. The downside is that you cannot inspect the product before you place an order. You may also find that shipping fees for heavier pavers are pricey and can greatly increase the overall cost of your project.
In person buying requires getting in your car or truck and heading to the seller’s location. However, once you are there, you can actually see what you’re paying for up close. You can also speak to someone who understands pavers and can provide sound advice or product recommendations on the spot. It is much easier to compare building materials when you can see them right in front of you!
Should You Shop for Pavers Online?
Online shopping might be a good choice for:
- Busy customers who don’t have time to visit a showroom
- Customers who already know which paver they want to buy
- Experienced customers who have no questions or uncertainties
If you have questions or are not sure which paver you need, then consider stopping by one of the ABC Brick Sales showrooms. Expert staff members are available to provide suggestions and answer questions. If you’re on the Gold Coast, we have everything housed inside our one-year old, architecturally designed facility which contains 4 football fields worth of stock space. You can actually see the product to determine if the colour, size, and texture is what you really want.
Displays in the showroom provide a better example of what you are buying than an image on the internet. Any job that requires pavers or masonry is an investment in your property. Make sure you know all your options before you buy pavers online. Get your next building project off on the right foot by visiting the ABC Brick Sales showroom!
