Alan's Preferred Carpet Dealer Directory
The Carpet Dealers I recommend are all locally owned and hand-picked by me personally. They must pass my strict set of requirements to be listed in my directory. Inclusion is by invitation only and no dealer can "buy" their way onto my preferred list.

Carpet scams are everywhere today! Most homeowners unknowingly follow bad advice by untrained or unscrupulous salespeople and end up hoping for a reasonably good outcome. This almost always ends in tragedy. It's getting harder every day to find honest & reputable Carpet Dealers! Over the past 6 years, I have compiled my own special list of reputable hand-picked carpet dealers nationwide who have successfully passed my test; are locally owned; give free measures and estimates; offer fair and square prices; have knowledgeable sales staff; and hire qualified installers. Don't take chances! See who I recommend near you!
Alan, What Makes Your Preferred Carpet Dealers So Special?
It takes ALL my years of carpet knowledge and experience to locate, research and verify the Carpet retailers that I recommend to my readers. Over the years I have learned the tricks and secrets to how to recognize a bad or dishonest carpet dealer, but I also have learned the ability to recognize an honest and reputable dealer when I find one. That doesn't mean that there are not other reputable dealers out there, I am sure there are lots of reputable dealers that are not yet on my list! If you know of one please let me know who they are!!
Don't take my word for it!
I suggest you visit several carpet dealers in your area and make up your own mind for yourself. I am confident that you will recognize that the Carpet Dealers I recommend are honest and reputable and will go the extra mile to earn your business and treat you right! Don't automatically go with the lowest price... The carpet you select must be able to withstand your level of foot traffic! Take my free Carpet Foot Traffic Test to see what grade of carpet you need to buy!
You Do the Math!
I've already done the legwork for you! If I were to recommended EVERY dealer in America there would be more than 20,000 carpet dealers listed on my website. Since I am so picky about who I recommend to my readers, there are only about 350 Carpet Dealers that I recommend nationwide! Each are hand-picked, one at a time and they must pass my test to be included on my website! This saves you from having to travel many miles and spend time visiting a bunch of not-so-good retailers.
Not all Homeowner Reviews or "Lists" you read online are real!
Don't waste your money! I highly suggest that you don't pay a monthly subscription fee just to read a few online homeowner reviews about carpet and flooring contractors and locally owned Carpet Retailers. Be aware that many shady business owners often ask their friends, co-workers and relatives to write up fake, phony or bogus online reviews to make their businesses appear more reputable than they actually are. Why pay a monthly subscription fee for a list of bogus online reviews that are not honest, accurate or real. I check out each and every carpet dealer personally. See who I recommend near you!
Some business owners are so ruthless that they will post phony "negative reviews" against their nearby competitors! For these reasons and many, many more, you should realize that you really can't trust ANY online or subscription-based consumer reviews to help you make wise and informed decisions. The fact is: You really have no way of knowing if the reviewer is competent, coerced, honest, educated, experienced or even a real person.

I will personally answer all your Carpet Questions! FREE!
As a Consumer Advocate since 1998 and a 30-year veteran of the carpet business, I know how hard it is to get a fair & square deal on new carpet. That's why I personally hand-pick each and every carpet dealer listed in my Preferred Carpet Dealer Directory. I choose my preferred carpet dealers very carefully using my own special set of rigid requirements. It takes hours of research for me to locate and identify a reputable dealer and then once I do, I put them to the test.
You may have to drive a little farther to visit one of my preferred carpet dealers but I'm sure it will be well worth the trip! Be sure to print out my free coupon and I suggest you call ahead to set up a convenient time to visit their store.
The Lowest Price
If you shop around and get several bids from various carpet retailers, don't automatically buy from the dealer with the lowest bid. While getting the absolute lowest price is important, the lowest price isn't always the best deal if you get cheap padding or lousy installation.
Too good to be true...
Many unsuspecting homeowners are lured in by television commercials claiming huge discounts on carpet installation or getting two rooms of carpet for the price of one. Folks, in today's carpet business you get what you pay for! There is always a catch to these offers, usually they sell inferior products and overcharge you on some items to make up for the discount on other items. If it sounds too good to be true then it likely is.
I firmly believe that first-class customer service and qualified installation are just as valuable and important as the carpet and padding you select. It doesn't matter if you get the lowest price on materials if the installation is done poorly. It also doesn't matter if you get the lowest carpet price if it is poorly made and doesn't last as long as you hope. Buying carpet is confusing, complicated and frustrating. That's why I created this website, to help homeowners make wise and informed carpet choices.
Why Do You Only Recommend Locally-Owned Carpet Dealers?
I answer thousands of emails every year and hear plenty of horror stories from unsuspecting homeowners who have bought carpet from the big box stores or those heavily advertised shop-at-home services. The list of consumer complaints is too long to list here. You can search the internet yourself and find plenty of complaints to read if you like. Buying carpet is a major expense and you deserve to get treated fairly!
That's why I only support and recommend only a select few honest and reputable, locally-owned carpet dealers. These are your neighbors who have been in business for a number of years, have a good reputation, provide first class service have a vested interest in your community. They pay state and local taxes that help support your local schools, maintain your roads and so much more. They stand behind their products and workmanship and will be there for you, from start to finish, to make sure you are completely satisfied with your purchase!
Keep in touch with me!
I really want to hear about all your experiences with any carpet dealer you choose to buy from and I welcome your comments and suggestions. Email me as often as you like. I want to help you choose your carpet wisely and help you negotiate a great carpet deal.
Feel free to contact me if you have any questions, comments or concerns.
