Why Liquidators are the Best Wholesale Suppliers
When considering which wholesale supplier is the best, there are several factors resellers should take into consideration. These factors include cost of wholesale merchandise, supplier reliability and quality of wholesale merchandise, just to name a few.
Back in the day, it was possible to get reasonably priced wholesale merchandise from a local wholesale supplier who would charge a price that left resellers plenty of room to make a profit despite the premiums the wholesale suppliers would add on top.
As anyone who’s been in the reselling business for a while knows, those days are long gone. Wholesale prices from these traditional suppliers are now closer to retail prices, meaning that the profits that can be made sourcing this way have been reduced to next to nothing.
This, then, is the reason why top-tier liquidators like Direct Liquidation are now the best wholesale suppliers. Here’s why.
What Are Liquidators?
A top-tier liquidation specialist differs from a traditional wholesale supplier in several distinct ways. Companies like Direct Liquidation work directly with some of the biggest retailers in the United States, offering them spaces on their online live liquidation auctions platforms through which the retailers can dispose of their surplus wholesale merchandise, selling it directly to resellers at a considerable discount.
Whereas a traditional wholesaler will obtain pallets and truckloads of wholesale merchandise, split them up into smaller loads and then sell them on to resellers – often having first separated the best stuff from each pallet and truckload they buy – at a fixed price with a wholesaler premium slapped on top, a liquidations specialist merely facilitates the selling of unwanted returns, closeouts, overstock and refurbished wholesale merchandise on the retailers’ behalf, therefore cutting out the wholesaler middle man and, crucially, not adding additional charges that would make the likelihood of making a profit highly unlikely.
The Advantages Of Switching To A Liquidator
There are many advantages to switching to a top-tier liquidation specialist over continuing to use a more traditional wholesale supplier. The principle advantages are:
Range Of Choice
Thanks to the arrangements liquidators have in place with some of the biggest names in US retail, the range of choice available on an online liquidation marketplace is vastly superior to that of traditional wholesalers. Take Direct Liquidation, for example. They have arrangements in place with Amazon, Lowe’s Hardware, Target and Walmart. These giants of the retail world sell their unwanted customer returns, overstock, closeouts and refurbished surplus merchandise through Direct Liquidation’s online auction and sales platform.
In a nutshell, this means the sheer volume and choice of surplus merchandise you’ll find on Direct Liquidation’s site dwarfs what you’ll find if you look at the inventory of an average middleman wholesale supplier. Thanks to a liquidator dealing with large scale retailers who have huge amounts of surplus merchandise they need to dispose of quickly to free up space in their warehouses, you’ll find huge quantities of goods in an enormous range of categories.

To illustrate that point, here are the categories Direct Liquidation has on its online liquidation marketplace:
Automotive, Baby, Books, Clothing, Shoes & Accessories, Electronics, Fixed Assets, Food, Furniture, General Merchandise, Health & Beauty, Home, Home Improvement, Industrial Supplies, Jewelry, Office, Party & Occasions, Patio & Garden, Pet Toys & Pet Supplies, Sports, Fitness & Outdoors, Toys, Unsorted.
As you can see, that just about covers pretty much anything a reseller could ever want. And because the merchandise comes from some of the US’s biggest name retailers who sell all the big brand names as well as their own, highly-respected own brand products such as Walmart’s Blackweb and Mainstays ranges, you’ll find surplus merchandise made by some of the world’s biggest manufacturers such as Sony, HP, LEGO, Fisher Price, DeWalt, Apple, Microsoft, Stanley Tools, Huawei, Google, Samsung, Black & Decker and many, many more.
When it comes to choice of goods and quality, there really is no better place to source surplus merchandise than an online liquidation marketplace.
Because top-tier liquidation companies work directly with their big-name retail partners, an online liquidation marketplace has a near-constant supply of surplus merchandise to bid for in live auctions, or to buy for a fixed or negotiated price.
This means a liquidator can be relied upon to have exactly what your business needs as and when it needs it in whatever quantity that is, be it just a single box load, a pallet, multiple pallets or even partial truckloads or full truckloads of wholesale merchandise.
And because liquidators’ distribution centers are usually located very close to their retail partners’ warehouse, it also means warehouse to distribution turnaround time is short. The goods you buy through an online liquidation marketplace will be ready to ship to an address of your choice or for pickup by yourself or a third party courier in the shortest amount of time possible. Great news for resellers looking to restock their businesses in a hurry.
Of course, there’s no point switching supplier if the prices a liquidator charges are no better than what’s already on offer elsewhere. Luckily, that’s not the case and it’s all because of those aforementioned big-name retailers.
Every year, companies like Walmart and Target end up with huge amounts of surplus merchandise they must get rid of as quickly as possible if they’re not going to clog up their own supply chains. This means they rely on liquidators to dispose of this merchandise quickly and efficiently and, best of all, they’re willing to take a considerable hit on price.
Resellers buying their wholesale merchandise via a liquidator will be able to buy box loads, pallets and truckloads of liquidated goods wholesale at a price that’s well below MSRP value. That means more profits can be made when selling the goods that are sourced this way.
When it comes to price, liquidators simply can’t be beaten.
