Home Depot Pallets
Home Depot pallets are overstock, shelf pulls, or returns, and often have very clean, nice looking returns. However, many of the time when people go back and return equipment or material to Home Depot, they are returning items that could have become damaged due to use. Though Home Depot does carry high quality items, and you can receive many brand items that are being liquidated, there can still be poor, dirty returned items as well.
You can receive in your pallet products by brands such as Chem-Dry, Behr paints, Homelite, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Ryobi and Ridgid, American Woodmark, KitchenAid, Magnolia Home, Eddie Bauer, Cuisinart, Glacier Bay, Hampton Bay, and other brands. When bidding on, or considering purchasing a pallet through an auction or wholesale site, try to obtain a copy of the manifest so that you can see what you can expect to receive.
Well, the first thing you need to remember is to not buy more than you need or can afford. If you do, you will end up spending way too much for what you get. Buying too much means that you aren't getting any profit for the pallets that you bought from Home Depot. So, if you know you that the cost of the pallet can make reselling the merchandise prohibitive, don't do it. Save your money for something else.
Second, when you get your pallet, check the contents over thoroughly. You want to separate the items into categories such as items that are in brand new condition, slightly used, in need of repair, and items that are beyond repair.
The third thing to check off your list is where you will be storing your pallets once you receive them. Is there a proper place for them? Some places, like the garage, are not good for storing equipment pallets. If you need to put them somewhere, then you need to be sure it's a dry, safe place. And very importantly, if you are renting space, make sure that you can still make money after factoring the cost to store the products. While ideally you would like to be able to quickly sell the merchandise, or even flip the pallet, give yourself extra time (and storage/rent costs) to ensure that even if takes you longer than expected to sell the merchandise, that you can still earn a profit. If you can fix items yourself, you can save on refurbishing costs on the items that can be repaired.
Once you have these three things in order, you can go ahead and order what you need. Just make sure that you are being realistic about the prices that you can charge for the items, and your costs such as shipping to receive the pallet, storage costs, and any repair related costs.
Now, let's talk about some of the perks of Home Depot. For example, they have a lot of tools for sale. Not just hardware. They have electrical tools, saws, drills, wrenches and more. You can find anything you need for your home improvement projects. It might take a while to get through everything, but it's all there.
Another great perk of a Home Depot pallet is that you can receive an assortment of all of the items that they have in the store. They also have replacement parts for all their products, so if you receive a broken item, you might be able to visit the store and buy the parts so that you can refurbish the item and have it fixed. Sometimes, you might actually need to replace the entire item; however, since you will have it in stock, you can just order what you need and have it delivered.
You can purchase pallets from the do it yourself construction chain through websites such as Liquidation.com, Bstock.com, truckloadliquidations.com, directliquidation.com, and departmentstoreliquidations.com
