Q: How long have you been in business?
A: It's official--ZW USA is the oldest independent supplier of commercial dog waste bags and stations! Since 1989, customers have depended on us for the highest quality products, at value prices. Same day shipping, always. We're now in our 34th year, so buy with confidence.
1) Company Warehouse: A supplier should have their own warehouse and shipping staff, NOT a 3rd party fulfillment center. Avoid vendors that use words like "our warehouse personnel" or "our shipping department", when the truth is those suppliers may use a fulfillment center that is miles, or states, away from a home laptop that constitutes the 'company' they pretend is bigger than it is. Some don't even list their physical address. Why? Because, they probably don't have one. If they list an address, "Google" it. If a UPS store, residential home or fulfillment center comes up, then the supplier doesn't have their own warehouse and staff, and they have no direct control over their inventory and your shipment. Professional Managers should only do business with suppliers that have direct control of their inventory.
Only companies with their own warehouse and own staff have full, complete control over inventory security, shipping accuracy, and on-time reliability. When our competitors say using 3rd party warehousing is OK, you should think TWICE- - -buying from them puts your job, and your residents, at risk.
3) Years in THIS business: Many new suppliers will make statements like "we have years of business experience", when what they REALLY mean is that they have experience in a totally different business or industry that doesn't relate to dog waste or the property management or municipality markets. Please be wary of new suppliers that pretend to know this industry and pretend to know what you require from a supplier of dog waste solutions. Don't risk it.
4) Inventory Levels: Many small suppliers have a very low inventory of bags and stations but pretend to 'always be in stock'. Ask them how long ago they bought those bags, how many cases they have today and when their next delivery is arriving. Chances are they won't be in business when you need to re-order. Why take the risk?
