Whether for commercial or private home use, one needs to be very careful when purchasing playground equipment. This will be both for safety as well as the economy. Playgrounds play a very important role in the growth and development of children and should, therefore, be handled as the priority they are. After one has compared the various quotes from different suppliers for playground equipment and after comparing the safety and flexibility of the various supplier’s products, it becomes important to think about the partnerships that are available. This is mainly because the playgrounds will be used on a daily basis for an extended period.
It is very important that as a buyer, one avoids falling into the trap of that the decision on the project of buying playground is one to be made in a hurry. This is because this simple looking decision will have far reaching effects. This is especially the case when one is dealing with playground suppliers for a commercial playground.
Whenever a company is bidding for a supplying tender, they may be tempted to over-promise. Most suppliers will offer top-notch after sales within the warranty period. One may be taken by these promises only to realize later that they were stringed along. The simplest way to find out if a company is true to their word is to find other clients whose project is ongoing and still within the warranty period and enquire from them about their supplier relationship.
Within the warranty period, maintenance will usually be free but that will only last so long. One should find out what the cost of maintenance will be after the warranty runs out. It is best to ask this question out rightly from the very start as opposed to finding out much later that it will cost an arm and a leg to repair the commercial playground equipment.
Availability of stock
One should make sure that the supplier in question is capable of supplying all the playground equipment themselves. In the case where a supplier has to buy from another supplier, the entire process will end up costing more. It will also take longer to complete the process. What’s more they cannot guarantee the products that they purchase from another dealer. It will, therefore, be more beneficial to find a dealer who is well within their means to supply the entire stock without the need to outsource from other dealers since it will be less time-consuming to finish the purchase and it will also be more water-tight.
