As a consumer of any product, you have the right to demand and expect the very best quality imaginable. Doesn’t matter if you are getting a bargain deal or if you are buying higher end wicker furniture. But not all wicker furniture is created equally, and neither are all manufacturers of same. In fact, who you buy from is about as important as what you buy. How can that be? Because there are a variety of factors that go in to ensuring your happiness as a consumer, and some businesses could care less about what those factors are. They just want to take your money. Here are a few things that some wicker furniture manufacturers won’t tell you about the product you are thinking of buying (theirs):
1. Unhealthy working conditions
Some manufacturers care very little about the “how” of their products’ production. They subject their workers to unsafe working conditions, and as such, they put you at risk of getting a below quality product put together by compromised workers in poor conditions. The quality can only suffer in such cases. Ideally, you want to make sure that the chair or furniture set you are purchasing is crafted under the best possible conditions, because that’s the only way to ensure that you will consistently get a great deal every time. When the human factor is present in the production process, quality can and does suffer. Maybe you get lucky. Maybe you don’t. But do you really want to take that chance?
2. Wicker furniture longevity
Many wicker furniture manufacturer’s do not want you to know about the lasting power of their products. While some will not make a good enough product to live up to those standards, it is the intent purpose of a company to develop repeat customers. Therefore, they aren’t free with information regarding steps that you can take to make the product maintain its same quality for decades. The main thing is that you keep the wood in ideal conditions for it to breathe and be nurtured over time. Extremely dry environments could lead to cracking and splitting, and when that happens, the furniture doesn’t have long for this world. And voila, you have to buy more products. The manufacturers only hope that maybe you got enough use out of it to consider giving them your money once more.
Many wicker furniture manufacturers do not want to acknowledge their competition. They don’t want you to know that you have options, because they know if you did, they would be forced to compete on pricing and service standards. But you do have choices, and that’s why you should buy only from a wicker furniture manufacturer, who respects you as a consumer.
