Study the Quotes you get

Our business is based on integrity & Ethical Trade.  The Corporate Responsibility section of our website shows who we are & how we work.

We do not waiver from these principles.

Our products are very popular & we sell a lot of bags, but we are never the cheapest.

Because we're not the cheapest, we loose a lot of orders based on price.

However, when the comparison quotes are analysed, we tend to have the better price.

The way it occurs is :
  1)  we receive the details required for the bags
  2)  we quote on the requirements as stated
  3)  our pricing is invariably more expensive than the competition

The hidden factor is usually found in the competitive quotes - whereby they have under-quoted on the specifications requested & as such they'll win the order because the quotes are not scrutinised closely to check comparability.

The result is that you, your business, your clients & customers are undersold on the quality that was expected.

Don't undersell your business - make sure the quotes you receive are based on like-for-like products.

When the playing field is level, you'll find out pricing is actually very competitive.

Be sure to Contact Bag People for your reusable bag needs.


When making comparisons, be sure to compare :
  --  fabric weights
  --  fabric colour option - are they an additional cost?
  --  plastic base board - included or additional?
  --  handle stitching method - sewn to top seam only, or sewn all down the side
  --  any additional print set-up charges
  --  local taxes, duty or clearance fee's
  --  courier & delivery charges
