Are you scouring the Internet and you local newspapers looking for a Teak furniture sale? Join the club. Teak furniture, especially outdoor Teak furniture has become so popular that the demand is sending Teak furniture prices higher and higher with no end in sight!
That’s why it’s so rare to find a Teak furniture sale and why you should jump on one when you do find it. But don’t confuse a Teak furniture sale with a simple Teak furniture promotion. Retailers frequently offer 10% to 20% Teak furniture “discounts”, especially at the end of the outdoor Teak furniture season, but that’s not a genuine Teak furniture sale.
Anyway, retailers are not who you should be spending your money with; not if you are looking for quality crafted Teak furniture made from only Grade “A” Teak, which is the best that money can buy.
Your true Teak furniture sale on the finest Teak furniture can usually only be found when you buy directly from the Teak furniture manufacturer. And make sure that you actually are buying from a manufacturer and not from a wholesaler or a distributor. That’s because the further down the distribution chain you get from the manufacturer, the more of a markup you end up paying. Teak furniture sales that are discounting already high retail prices are not true Teak furniture sales. They’re just a ploy to get you in the door.
So, how much can you expect to save when you encounter a true Teak furniture sale that’s being hosted by an actual Teak furniture manufacturer? Fifty percent is a good starting point, but some Teak manufacturers will occasionally offer as much as 60% off to their customers who buy direct. Now that’s what I call a Teak furniture sale!
When you buy from a Teak furniture manufacturer, whether they are having a Teak furniture sale or not, make sure that they talk the talk AND walk the walk.
Quality Teak furniture manufacturers will only use Grade “A” Teak. Grade “A” Teak does not have any knotholes or cracks in the wood. It’s as near to perfect as anything nature can create. Only the best of the best Teak ends up being Grade “A”. Anything else is plain inferior and is not worth your money even if they are having a Teak furniture sale.
You also want to make sure that every Teak furniture piece you buy, especially your outdoor Teak furniture, is 100% Kiln-dried. This ensures that your outdoor patio Teak furniture is dry through and through so it won’t shrink, slip or move after it is manufactured. If you can find a 100% Kiln-dried Grade “A” Teak furniture sale, it will be your lucky day!
Hands-off the handmade Teak furniture
We’ve all been conditioned to think that nothing is better than hand made. That might be true with chocolate chip cookies, but just the opposite is true with Teak outdoor furniture sets.
When you buy a matching Teak outdoor furniture set, regardless of whether it’s part of a Teak furniture sale or you’re paying full price, the key word is “matching”. You want to make sure that each piece looks exactly like the next and that can only happen when your Teak furniture is machine made to exacting quality tolerances. Humans just can’t reach those levels of perfection and it will show when all of your Teak pieces are grouped together.
So remember – the next time you’re looking for a Teak furniture sales, look for prices that are 50% to 60% off of retail, and pieces that are machine made from genuine Grade “A” kiln-dried Teak. Otherwise, there’s no Teak furniture sales that’s worth your money.
