Carpet Sales Scams Revealed

©2021 Alan Fletcher - Carpet Expert and Consumer Advocate

 

Carpet Sales Incentives

 

Another sneaky sales trick that contributes to homeowners receiving bad or unsound carpet advice from an unprofessional salesperson is due to manufacturer or distributor sales incentives and retailer sales contests that include cash bonuses, paid vacations, cruises, prizes and other valuable rewards for Dealers or salespeople selling the most amount of a certain brand or style of carpet, pad or other flooring product. 

 

Similarly, if a deceptive carpet retailer buys a large quantity of a particular carpet or pad because of a special discounted price, a shrewd store owner or manager may require that their salespeople encourage, push, urge and suggest the goods to their customers whether it is a suitable choice for you or not. 

 

Any homeowner could become a victim of this type of carpet scam under these circumstances and end up with carpet or other flooring products that doesn't meet their needs or perform the way they may had hoped or expected. 

 

You could easily waste hundreds or even thousands of dollars just by selecting the wrong carpet or padding. 

 

 

Facts:

  • Homeowners must have access to honest & accurate carpet buying information in order to make wise and informed carpet buying choices. 

  • Homeowners often receive conflicting information and are duped by unscrupulous carpet retailers into buying products or services that are unnecessary and overpriced.

  • Homeowners need to know how to recognize and avoid common carpet scams, sales gimmicks & rip offs. 

  • Homeowners need to know which carpet dealers are honest and reputable, offering fair and square deals and providing qualified installation.

 

 

There are plenty of honest and reputable carpet stores and lots of very knowledgeable carpet salespeople read and waiting to help you make a good carpet purchase, but it's not easy for homeowners to tell the good ones from the bad ones.

 

That's why I have created my own special list of locally-owned carpet retailers that I recommend to my readers. I use my 30+ years of experience to locate only the best locally owned carpet dealers I can find all across America.

 

We haven't yet discussed getting your carpet measured properly, which is also a very important factor you must consider. You need to have your home measured properly if you want to save the most money possible.
