Now that we’ve piqued your interest in Techo-Bloc, you’re likely wondering where you can go to find the perfect Techo-Bloc products for your home’s exterior, landscape, or hardscape. Fortunately, it’s not difficult for NJ homeowners to get their hands on these incredible materials.
While Techo-Bloc itself does not sell products directly to customers, they do authorize reputable dealers to offer their products to the masses. This post will serve as your roadmap to finding the best, locally owned and operated Techo-Bloc dealers in NJ.
Although it may seem obvious, it’s very important to be pragmatic about your options when selecting a Techo-Bloc supplier – especially when it comes to location. Throughout the years, we’ve seen too many people get burned by attempting to buy their landscaping and hardscaping materials online.
In many instances, they were attracted by incredibly low product prices, only to be extorted for astronomical shipping and delivery fees in the long run. It’s a lot safer and simpler to find a local, NJ Techo-Bloc dealer that will allow you to take a look at the products it has to offer and that can provide you with no cost or low cost, local delivery.
Evaluate Industry Experience
In addition to being situated in a convenient location, you should also consider the history of your prospective Techo-Bloc supplier. Find out how long the company has been in business, and how long it has been affiliated with Techo-Bloc.
Businesses that have been around for awhile will have the most rock solid reputations for product quality, integrity, fair pricing and excellent customer service. It’s also good to determine whether or not landscaping/hardscaping is the primary focus of your supplier.
Some companies sell a wide range of products, materials and services, with Techo-Bloc materials being just a side gig or a way to make a few extra bucks. It’s a lot better to give your business to companies that are industry authorities and who are passionate about landscaping and hardscaping.
Look for the Techo-Bloc Stamp of Approval
So, you’ve found a supplier that sells Techo-Bloc products and they’re located right in the heart of NJ. You’ve done a little research and you’ve discovered that they’ve got a long history in the hardscaping businesses and they’ve been in operation for years.
While all of that is wonderful, it won’t do you an ounce of good if they aren’t actually authorized to sell Techo-Bloc materials. Make sure that you visit the Techo-Bloc website and look up their list of authorized dealers in your area to make sure that your prospective company is mentioned.
Visit the Showroom
Once you know that everything is on the up-and-up with your locally authorized Techo-Bloc dealer, it’s time to pay a visit to their local showroom. If the company doesn’t have a showroom, we strongly suggest that you look for a different supplier.
It’s really important to have the ability to take a full, 3D, 360 degree look at the different Techo-Bloc products that are available, and to see how they work within the scope of a landscape or hardscape.
When visiting a showroom, you’ll be able to see how certain materials interact with one another, and you glean a lot of inspiration from the displays. It’s the best way to make sure that you’re 100% in love with a product before you buy it.
While you’re visiting the supplier’s Techo-Bloc showroom, you should take the opportunity to get to know how knowledgeable the dealer’s team is about the products it sells. The more educated a supplier’s employees are about Techo-Bloc, the more you can feel confident in their ability to steer you in the right direction with their insider tips, insights and advice.
Don’t hesitate to ask specific questions about the materials, including how they were manufactured, the patterns available for installation, construction techniques, seasonal maintenance and ongoing care/repair. Look for staff members who are able to talk about the products with confidence and ease.
Check Out Industry Connections
A supplier may tell you that they’ve been working with Techo-Bloc products for years, but how can you be sure that they are being honest? One of the best ways to determine how much history a company has with a specific line of products will lay within its connections to others within the industry.
If a dealer has only been selling Techo-Bloc materials for a few months, they won’t be able to refer you to local contractors who have experience in working with Techo-Bloc. A company that has been affiliated with Techo-Bloc for several years, however, will have the insider scoop on all of the best, most experienced and fairest contractors available in your local area.
It’s always a good idea to shop around and compare the prices on Techo-Bloc products in your area. An authorized dealer will be diligent about offering fair and competitive rates for Techo-Bloc materials. Be wary of any vendor or business that is charging a lot more or a lot less than the majority of other dealers.
State Your Demands
At long last, it’s time to state your needs and your demands to your Techo-Bloc supplier. If you’re like most homeowners, you will need to have your Techo-Bloc products delivered to your work site, and you’ll have specific requirements for the location where the goods will need to be dropped off, and the window of time in which the drop off must happen.
Any supplier that’s worthy of your time and business will listen carefully to your needs and will go above and beyond the call of duty to make sure that each one is addressed and taken care of.
