Special Delivery: Consider Direct Shipping for Your Customers

Your business depends on your ability to satisfy the needs of your customers. You stock the best products, provide expert advice, and help them face the many challenges of growing quality crops. Our mission has always been to support your efforts to be a reliable resource for the growing community. We understand that every one of your customers is unique, so it is important that we offer a variety of ways to help you adapt to a diverse and dynamic industry.

One of the solutions that we are able to provide is the ability to drop-ship directly to your customers’ desired locations. In certain circumstances, this can prove to be a preferable option that offers several potential benefits.

Inventory

If your inventory space is limited or you would simply rather not carry an abundance of products in anticipation of potential sales, drop shipping could be a valid option to relieve yourself of that burden. We’ll worry about keeping our shelves stocked with an adequate supply of product while you retain the ability to fulfill your customers’ requests. This can be particularly valuable when working with large commercial accounts that would otherwise require substantial overhead costs related to storage, inventory purchases, and canceled orders.

Convenience

Some of your customers may operate their grows in locations that are a significant distance from your shop. Traveling to and from remote locations for all of the various tools and products they need can be a hassle, and more importantly a waste of valuable time and money. Everyone is familiar with the common misfortune of needing to make multiple trips to the store just to finish one project. A drop shipping option can be a great convenience that increases a grower’s efficiency and productivity, not to mention a general appreciation for your role in making their lives easier.

Logistics

Thanks to our established relationships with logistics companies, we can handle the coordination of shipping, which can save you time and money. Once you have collected all the necessary order information and delivery details, our sales representatives will work with you to make sure the products arrive safely.

Customer Retention

Left Coast Wholesale doesn’t sell directly to customers, which means you will be able to maintain your unique relationship with them. Our role is simply to facilitate your efforts to assist them.

Safety

If you or your customers are concerned with safety issues related to COVID-19, our direct shipping option can be an effective way to achieve contactless delivery. You’ll be able to collect and execute orders without any physical contact required.

Is Direct Shipping The Right Fit?

While drop shipping can be a great choice in certain cases, it may not be appropriate for every situation. Actual shipping costs and logistics can vary depending on a variety of factors, such as destination, order size, etc. Left Coast Wholesale sales representatives will be able to provide you with all the information necessary to determine whether direct shipping is the right option for any particular order.
