We have all seen ‘Made In America’ labels on our products, but how many of us have thought about what it really means?
To bellman cart manufacturer Glaro Inc., ‘Made In America’ is about trust. It’s a shared belief that you can get quality and reliable, durable, long-lasting products that perform as advertised, from American companies.
In our experience, customers want to know if their carts are made In the USA, or if they are buying from an American based company who farms out its manufacturing to foreign factories. The reason is that most shoppers want to buy from credible American brands. They want to be sure that they can get parts in the future if necessary and that the products are made with recycled content which are post-consumer recyclable as well. Dollars follow trust. Repeat purchases are a result of trust. Developing long term relationships with customers depends on it.
Here are some tips on how you can trust that a bellman cart or platform truck is really made in America:
First, find out where your product is designed. On U.S. soil or abroad? Ask where the concept, innovation, and product development behind the products originate. A true American product is conceived and developed in the USA.
Second, who is manufacturing and fabricating your bellman carts? Is it an American company whose hands are crafting the carts? Or, are the bellman and luggage carts really imports from offshore?
Third, where are you buying your carts? Beware of dealers importing substandard products from foreign countries. Is the company a distributor, dealer, or a store distributing imported products within the United States? Are the operations of that company including its customer service department in the USA or somewhere else? Glaro Inc., for example, proudly has a network of USA distributors through which all products are distributed after being developed and manufactured in its New York factory and headquarters. Every Glaro Inc. products has the Made in the USA label.
Finally, where are the final assembly activities, including shipping, conducted? Are they completed here or abroad?
Even if you are only focused on value (that practical combination of quality and price where you are confident you are making the right choice), knowing where a product is manufactured can be very telling and influence your purchase decision.
Additional benefits of USA made bellman carts and platform trucks include Guaranteed Quality and Faster Shipping. Glaro Inc. is a company known for making every cart to order and shipping orders in a matter of days. Carts can also be customized with logos, convenience bars, color combinations, bumper choices, wheel configurations, hooks, deck coverings, and other options. Competitors selling “generic” models cannot personalize carts with this level of detail or care.
So, while there are many bellman cart options on the market, an American made brand has many benefits, often providing the highest value and long term benefits to you. Try an American made bellman cart (e.g. from Glaro Inc.) if you have not already and email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) when you experience the difference.
