3. Buying office furniture directly from Karo – The PROS

  • Lower Costs – purchasing directly from the manufacturer rather than a distributor ensures you get the best price.
  • Sales Process Control – As the manufacturer, we assume all responsibility and control over the sales process. This simplifies communication and decreases lead times.
  • Direct Feedback from Customers – By receiving direct feedback from our customers, we are able to accommodate product and service requests more efficiently. Direct customer feedback on product issues helps us improve the quality of our office furniture.
  • Improved Shipping and Delivery – Having no 3rd party in the sales and distribution process, simplifies communication and control. Furthermore, the simplified distribution network reduces the likelihood of damage occurring during transport.

4. Buying directly from Karo – The CONS

  • Test driving the product – Our showroom is located at our factory in Gauteng. If you are located further away, it may not be convenient for you to visit our office furniture showroom to test-drive our products.
  • Lead time – If you are looking for immediate delivery, some retailers have stock on-hand in their stores and are able to provide a ‘cash and carry’ solution. The only way we can supply your order immediately, is if you visit our factory and we have the product you are looking for, in stock.

5. Return Policy

If you are not satisfied with an item that you have purchased from us, you may return the item within 14 days for a full refund or a product exchange, subject to our Refund Terms and Conditions.
