The main advantage of shopping for concrete saws in local industrial supply stores or dealers is that you can see and touch the concrete saws for yourself; you can also take possession that day instead of waiting a few days for shipping. In contrast, shopping online can be a lot more convenient and efficient than driving across and around town to visit the various stores and dealers in person, especially if there is no dealer close to you. Shopping online for concrete saws can also be done 24 hours a day.
Selection- when shopping for concrete saws, you will find that there is a difference in selection among retail and online concrete saw stores. When researching concrete saw online, don’t just stop on the first site and pick something- do a little bit of browsing among sites first. As you visit the various sites, check out the selection as it might surprise you how many options you have.
Price- of course, price should be a consideration for any purchase you make, including concrete saws. All other things being equal, it usually makes sense to go with the concrete saw store that offers the lowest price. However, don’t make price your only criteria for choosing the best concrete saw for you.
Shipping- unless you will be buying your concrete saw from an industrial supply store, you will have to consider not just shipping costs, but shipping times. In general, the larger the concrete saw, the longer the shipping time and the higher the cost. But don’t forget that sometimes this can be offset to some degree because you usually don’t have to pay a sales tax for online purchases.
Warranty/Service- when comparing warrantees, check for warrantees of the web site AND of the concrete saw itself. Is there a guarantee on the delivery date/time, or a guarantee on the overall satisfaction of the site’s service? How will returns/exchanges be processed? In addition, make sure to find out how the concrete saw will be serviced, both within and beyond the warranty period.
Reputation- Generally, the best-known and most successful businesses are those that make a good product, earn repeat business, and earn a good reputation over time. Make sure that the concrete saw you purchase has a solid reputation among those who are familiar with the concrete saw make or model.
