The Truth About Second Hand Clothes Wholesale Trade
The second hand clothes market is absolutely booming at the moment. There are a number of different reasons for this. The main reason for this boom in the second hand clothing industry is the fact that there is still not a whole lot of cash to go around. Sure; we have escaped the recession that gripped the western world just a few short years ago, but people are still being incredibly careful with their money.
Like most industries on the rise; there are a number of different people springing up all over the place looking to break into the market and hopefully make a quick amount of money. In the second hand clothes market there are a number of wholesalers who are doing this. I am here to tell you right now that you need to be careful. Whilst many of these wholesalers are brilliant to work with, there are a few out there who are literally doing things to make a quick buck. They will disappear incredibly quickly soon afterwards.
It is vital that you work with reputable second hand clothing suppliers. You do not want to work with those who have just entered the industry. Now; this may seem a little bit harsh, companies do have to start somewhere. If you are trying to start your own second hand clothes business then you are obviously trying to start from somewhere too. The problem is that there are too many ‘dodgy’ new clothes wholesalers out there (we will look at the problems soon). This is an industry-wide problem and it even impacts those who are trying to deal with new clothes too. If you work with companies that have yet to establish a reputation you will most likely end up putting the reputation of your company ‘on the line’.
What Are The Most Common Issues Experienced By Buyers?
The main issue for you will be the fact that you really do not know where the second hand clothes that you are purchasing have been sourced from. This is not a market where absolutely everything can be traced back to a factory somewhere. You are having the clothes placed in your hands and you are pretty much being told that you need to trust where they came from. This could mean one of a number problems occurring:
- The clothes that you are purchasing have been sourced from less-than-savoury locations. I have lost track of the amount of people who are trying to sell second hand clothes wholesale when they have been stolen or something similar. This is not good for you. If your company purchases stolen clothing, whether you knew or not, you will end up dealing with a number of different legal issues which you most likely do not want to end up dealing with. This can completely destroy your business as you will not get back the money that you initially spent on the clothes that you purchased.
- The clothes could be fake garments. There are a number of second hand clothes wholesalers out there who are attempting to peddle the fact that they offering fantastic deals on second hand clothing from some of the biggest fashion houses in the world. You have absolutely no idea whether what you are purchasing is going to be real or not. This again is going to cause a number of different problems for your business.
On top of this you may end up paying more for the second-hand clothes than you should do. Obviously you will be buying from a wholesaler as you wish to boost the bottom line of your business. The problem is that a great number of the newer wholesalers on the market who have yet to build up their reputation are pricing their products as if they were selling to the end user. This of course means that prices are going to be considerably higher. If you end up purchasing the clothes that these wholesalers are offering for a high price then you are not going to be able to make a profit. This is going to be detrimental to your company. This is why you need to work with reputable companies. These are the people who know how the industry works and the prices that both they and the people that they deal with will be able to command for products.
If this is not enough; second hand clothing is a tricky product to deal with. Let’s be honest; much of the clothing that you see is not absolutely perfect. It could be dirty or may suffer from a number of defects. This is why you want to work with a reputable wholesaler. Those who work in the industry and have done for a good period of time will be able to work out which product is worth selling and which one should be destined for the scrap heap. This ensures that retailers are not lumbered with products that they will have no chance of ever selling. In addition to this; in the rare event that they do send out a less-than-stellar product you can have the confidence knowing that there will be somebody there on the other end of the line who is more than able to help you out. This is not something you get from newcomers to the industry. Most newcomers will purchase a ton of things, sell them, and hope for the best. They do not seem to care that selling second hand clothing is incredibly in-depth.
Thankfully there are a number of top suppliers out there in the second hand clothes wholesale trade. As a new business it is your job to find out who these people are. Once you have done that you are going to make it a whole lot easier on yourself to actually start making profit in the industry.
