Australia, you’re spoilt for choice. When it comes to wholesale office furniture suppliers, there are no less than 15 companies nationwide competing for your business. At face value, there might not be a whole lot that separates them, but each office furniture wholesaler has its pros and cons.
One business might cater only for retail stores, while another specialises in supplying drop shippers. Then you have wholesalers that avoid direct selling altogether, choosing to only work in the project fit out and refurb industry.
So how do you pick the best furniture wholesaler, especially considering our industry doesn’t have a comparison meerkat on standby?
We’ve compiled an archive of regularly updated articles that not only educate but will help you decide which furniture wholesaler is the best fit for you.
