What affordable entrance mats are for you will depend upon the objectives of you, the end user. We take pride in our knowledge of entrance mats and empathize with the various conditions that our customers face. To arrive at which type of floor mats are truthfully the most affordable mats, we like to ask a series of questions. Armed with this information, we can then recommend several types of walk off mats in a Good-Better-Best Scenario that is based upon the functionality of the matting.
With this information, the end user is then equipped with which types of floor matting will best suit his needs. It is common for our recommendations of entrance mats to vary in price. This combination of functionality and variable price points allow the end user to now be in control of just which type of floor mat will be the most affordable entrance mat for his particular situation.
Myth of Buying Direct
One thing that we have noticed is that when people search for products on the web, they often become pre-occupied with trying to "Buy Directly from the Manufacturer". It is a common misconception that one will get a better price if he can "eliminate the middleman". With regard to finding the most affordable entrance mats on the web, most of the companies offering entrance mats online are not manufacturers at all, but rather they are distributors. And if they are manufacturers, they are not manufacturers of all of the floor mats that they offer for sale.
Most matting manufacturers would rather sell to a distributor who maintains a focus on selling floor matting products. The manufacturer would prefer to offer a discounted price to someone who buys $50,000 worth of floor mats from them each year than to someone who may buy only $500 worth of floor matting one time.
As a result, the manufacturers realize that they would be cutting the throats of their customer (the master distributors like The Mad Matter, Inc.) if they were to offer their floor mats at too discounted of a price. That said, just because you may be buying from the manufacturer of a product, it does not logically follow that you will be getting the best price for that floor mat by buying direct.
Another fact to consider when talking with "manufacturers" is "Would they offer a competitor's product to you if it was truly the best floor matting for your specific requirements?" Master Distributors like The Mad Matter, Inc. would. We build our business by fitting you with the right floor mats for the intended application. THE RIGHT FOOR MATS ARE THE MOST AFFORDABLE MATS.
That said, there are also many categories of "Distributors" as well. Some distributors sell a host of products that may also include a line of floor mats. For instance, janitorial suppliers may sell glass cleaner, floor wax, mop buckets and a line of floor mats from one or two matting manufacturers. A janitorial supplier is looking for opportunities to sell you something. He doesn't care if it might be a toilet bowl brush or a floor mat. They are generalists, not specialists.
FACT: Master Distributors, like The Mad Matter, Inc., sell floor mats. We focus on floor mats, We know about all types of floor mats.
I pose another question "Who do you think would be most qualified to offer the best selection of affordable entrance mats - a janitorial supplier or a Master Distributor of floor matting?"
When considering an entrance mat for your particular situation, let us walk through an abbreviated process of choosing an affordable entrance mat. It is imperative to ask a few questions.
As you can see, choosing an affordable entrance mat is not as simple as one might think. If you told us that the entrance mats were to be used outside of an office building where expected traffic were to include wheelchairs, delivery hand-trucks and a high level of pedestrian foot traffic, we would recommend a certain category of entrance mats. If you told us that the entrance was rarely used, and you were only looking to safeguard your property and not to spend an arm and a leg, we would opt for an entirely different category of entrance mats. Again, you can see that what is an "affordable entrance mat" may well be different with any changes in your expectations.
These are but a few of the considerations that we look at when assisting you to choose the floor mats that will be best for you. Our people are trained to ask you pertinent questions that will reveal which types of matting fall under the category of affordable entrance mats for you.
