Eight Major Traps Of Buying Bathrooms, See If You Have Been Trapped?
First, counterfeit origin
In the market, the vast majority of ceramic sanitary ware are produced in Guangdong. For Guangdong products, whether in quality, style or brand are slightly better, but also recognized by most consumers. They are using this psychology to deceive consumers. Some unscrupulous businessmen such as the floor around 2000, “Ou Dian event” as well. The ceramic sanitary ware which is not made in Guangdong will be made in Guangdong packaging to deceive consumers, in order to figure out illegal profits.
Second, to fake the truth
In the market, brand-name sanitary ware whether in color or style, are leading the fashion trend. These attract the eyes of many consumers. Therefore, some businesses take advantage of the consumer’s pursuit of brand psychology, making some imitation brand style of bathroom. Their selling price is only half or one-third of the famous brand. Some consumers buy such imitation products because of greed for cheap, but do not get the brand’s services and quality assurance.
Third, the transfer behavior
Although consumers in the store in the brand products, it is not expected that some unscrupulous businessmen to take the transfer behavior. The product sent to the consumer’s home is the same color style of other brands of bathroom. If the consumer has objections, then return the product. If consumers do not see the flaw, they take the opportunity to earn the difference.
Fourth, not clearly marked prices
In some bathroom stores, not all the goods have a price tag. Unscrupulous merchants often mark only one of the lower-priced goods. They wait for consumers to check other goods, take the opportunity to inflate prices, so that consumers unknowingly fall into the price trap designed by the business. All of the above are currently on the market some illegal businesses for profit and plotting mischief. Consumers in the choice of ceramic sanitary ware must beware of all kinds of fraudulent business. Professionals say, just in case, consumers are better off to some regular brand merchants to select products better.
Fifth, defective products at low prices into the market of refined housing
“Now the large real estate companies are in great demand. But they are also very strong suppression of manufacturers prices, and the price is very low. Therefore, it is very low, or even no profit for building materials dealers to do the brand of the finishing room market.”
General ceramic sanitary products themselves have a grade. They are mainly divided into superior products and qualified products (or called B products). The so-called superior products is the best quality of finished ceramic sanitary ware, and various tests are up to standard products. And qualified products are selected from the finished product and slightly defective products. They are some of the defective products due to color differences, size deviations, flatness and other problems and can not be included in the superior products.
Sixth, cost-saving engineering sanitary ware to reduce the formulation standards
With the retail market has been tightening in recent years, home improvement and engineering channels have undoubtedly become the direction of development of many sanitary ware enterprises. In order to seize the engineering market, many companies have lit up the “engineering-specific products” slogan. Some companies have opened up a special engineering class bathroom production line. In addition, the opening of an engineering class bathroom product line is unrealistic. For the so-called “engineering special products”, sometimes they are only small and medium-sized brands in the original production line, reducing the standard of raw material allocation to produce products.
Seventh, the business “steal the dragon and turn the phoenix”
Due to the fierce competition in the engineering channel, there is a backlog of sanitary ware qualified products that have been “civet for prince” situation. They are mixed into the end retail market by replacing the packaging and other ways, and mixed with the best products sold to consumers.
In the superior and qualified products from the factory, most of the standard manufacturers will be marked on the packaging. In the store retail process, merchants are also obliged to inform consumers of the grade of the products purchased. However, there are still some loopholes in the market: unscrupulous merchants replace or remove the packaging. They sell qualified products as superior products; small and medium-sized bathroom brands do not follow the rules of packaging. They packaged factory products according to the requirements of dealers. This phenomenon of fraudulent counterfeiting occurs from time to time.
Eighth, agent shady
At present, the foreign name of the selling point of the bathroom store or sanitary products accounted for half of the mountain, but the real imported sanitary products are rare.
At the same time, if the sanitary products to obtain foreign “birth certificate”, they must pass customs inspection and obtain a full set of certificates such as customs declaration, bill of lading, container invoice. However, the reporter visited and found that some of the sanitary ware products claiming to be imported brands are unable to get a valid import certificate.
Customs declarations are easy to get hold of, as long as the bathroom sanitary ware produced in China shipped abroad. After “packaging” outside the country, then they will be shipped back to the domestic sales. This way they can get customs declarations. The value of the product will jump several times. However, this declaration is limited to a batch of goods import certificate. Some unscrupulous businessmen will use the customs declaration, falsely claiming that each batch of their products are imported. Some consumers do not know much about this, so it is easy to be fooled.
