Who wants to pay full price for garage floor tiles? I don’t; you don’t. As a matter of fact, no self-respecting, bargain-hunting homeowner would want to. After all, these are tough times we are in. With people losing their jobs (and even their homes) left and right, it pays to save as much as possible whenever, wherever, and however.
The good news is that there are many ways to get garage floor tiles cheap. In this article, I’ll share how I am able to get major savings from flooring every time I need them!
The first secret is the easiest. It’s not even a secret at all. Do your research. There are many great deals found online or off; you just need to know where to look. Moreover, you should brush up on who to talk to, what questions to ask, and how to go about asking your questions. You probably don’t know this but simply by trying to negotiate, you can often get price tags lowered. Again, these are tough times we live in. Retailers and wholesalers want those items off their shelves as fast as possible, before they get worn.
The second secret is an option that is often overlooked and perhaps, never even considered. Have you considered getting tiles that are neither top quality nor top of the line? That sounds scarier than it really is because while these materials won’t ever grace display windows, they won’t fall apart either.
If you are willing to consider the second option, you’re in for a treat. You can save as much as 80% when you buy tiles that are considered overruns. Overruns are flooring that are produced based on forecasts but did not sell, as expected. They end up in retailers at a fraction of their price. Often, these items are promotional goods which were manufactured in the marketing test phase. If they sell well, they are turned into a running line. If they don’t, they end up in a store somewhere, waiting for bargain-savvy homeowners to pick them up.
If you are not comfortable with the idea of buying overruns, that’s all right. There are many more ways you can pay only 20% of the original price tag on those garage floor tiles.
