Michigan Granite & Natural Stone Contractor in Steiner

Have you ever looked at two pieces of granite that looked similar but were priced drastically different? Why is there a price difference? For many materials it is as simple as logistics. Compare driving from Steiner, MI to Brasil and then traveling from Steiner, MI to Zimbabwe. So the higher priced stone is most likely from a location that requires more handling.

Granite Countertops And Price Haggling… (Shelby Township, MI)

 

When it comes to used car dearlerships, most people are familiar with price haggling. From the time you walk in the door, look around, and see the price stickers, many people are ready “to deal” with the salesperson, until they feel like they are getting a bargain. Well I don’t know about you, but used car dealerships have always turned me off. I personally do not the like the haggling, even if it is expected. I always thought, “What’s wrong with selling something for a fair price?”

Well lately, I feel like the remodeling industry, and countertop business in general, has turned into somewhat of a haggling business, and boy am I turned off by it! What is it with people who try and nickel and dime you to death? These days, it is almost an everyday occurence. Some customers feel it is necessary to mention that they can get their granite countertops from “so and so” for “such and such” a price.  Some customers also threaten that,  ”if you can’t match the price we’ll use the other competitor,” even though the whole time they really aren’t interested. Again…”What’s wrong with selling something for a fair price?”

When is the last time you walked in to your local Cub Foods, or other grocery store, and started haggling about the cost of milk, or bread?  How about walking into your local Wal-Mart to negotiate a price on a stereo? Give me a break. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with comparison shopping, but look around please. How is Competitor A, different from Competitor B, or C? Could it be that Competitor A has better Customer Service, a better website, employee’s that are willing to help and go the extra mile, people that answer the phones, a shop full of running equipment, installers and measuring technicians, etc. ? Now let’s look at the price? Is it worth it to you to pay more for Competitor A? If so, why not pay what they are asking, as long as it is within reason, and leave the price haggling for those car dealerships! According to paramountgranite.com
