Carpet Sales Incentives
Another sneaky sales trick that contributes to homeowners receiving bad or unsound carpet advice from an unprofessional salesperson is due to manufacturer or distributor sales incentives and retailer sales contests that include cash bonuses, paid vacations, cruises, prizes and other valuable rewards for Dealers or salespeople selling the most amount of a certain brand or style of carpet, pad or other flooring product.
Similarly, if a deceptive carpet retailer buys a large quantity of a particular carpet or pad because of a special discounted price, a shrewd store owner or manager may require that their salespeople encourage, push, urge and suggest the goods to their customers whether it is a suitable choice for you or not.
Any homeowner could become a victim of this type of carpet scam under these circumstances and end up with carpet or other flooring products that doesn't meet their needs or perform the way they may had hoped or expected.
You could easily waste hundreds or even thousands of dollars just by selecting the wrong carpet or padding.

That's why I have created my own special list of locally-owned carpet retailers that I recommend to my readers. I use my 30+ years of experience to locate only the best locally owned carpet dealers I can find all across America.
We haven't yet discussed getting your carpet measured properly, which is also a very important factor you must consider. You need to have your home measured properly if you want to save the most money possible.
