Schlage is one of the biggest names in door hardware. It is found everywhere and as a result a lot of stores have product in stock that they need to get rid of. When they try to unload it, they lower the price significantly. Every once in a while we will get a request for price matching and the price they want us to match is so rediculously low that we’d be losing money to get the sale – we just can’t do that if we want to stay in business. Funny though, some of those customers that want us to price match end up buying from us anyway. Is it because we actually answer the phone when the call? Answer our emails or know about the product we sell? We often have customers call us for a price match because they just aren’t comfortable with the website they found. Reasons range from not having a secure website, to not answering their emails or phone to just not having a professional looking website.?They just feel more conifdent with us because we are a main competitor in the industry.
Sometimes a competitor’s price is so low on Schlage because they have only one [unpopular] finish or they just have a few in stock. I understand why everyone is looking for a low price. I often shop around as well before buying. But I think it’s important to understand that sometimes paying a little more to buy from a reputable company that will provide customer service is worth the extra cost. These days I don’t shop around quite as much as I used to. To me a fair price from a reputable company is better than saving just a few more dollars to be uncertain about the product and level of customer service that comes with the product. Customer service is important to us and something we work on consistently to improve. I know when I shop at a website that provides a good price and great customer service, I want to shop there again. Our hope is that our customers will appreciate our customer service and remember us in the future. That being said, if you have found Schlage, Kwikset or other door hardware at a lower price let us know and if we can price match it – we will.
for quite some time we have been working toward a more robust website system. We have finally made the official change. Customers can now create accounts, track orders online and keep track of their order history right on our website. I know, I know – most websites have this. However for many reasons we have remained using our basic website system because it works. And when something works, don’t fix it. Finally something on the basic website broke and it was either spend to fix it, or make the change to a better system. I think we’ve made the right choice, and so far our customers seem to be pleased with the results. Hopefully we’ll have more changes coming in the future to make the shopping experience on Direct Door Hardware even better.

Realizing the importance of creating a lasting impression for buyers in a slow housing market, sellers upgrade their door knobs or cabinet hardware to give their homes a fresh and up to date look.
Logan, UT (PRWEB) May 13, 2008 — As the housing market continues to struggle in many regions of the country; it becomes more difficult for home owners, home builders and realtors to get their homes sold. Sellers have to be aggressive and sometimes creative in how they can set their home apart from the rest and get it sold quicker. An easy and fairly inexpensive fix that can make a big difference is updating door or cabinet hardware. Especially at the front door (the first contact a buyer will have with the home) a good impression is crucial.
Direct Door Hardware, a Logan, Utah company has been helping home owners, builders and Realtors make a better impression and improve the perceived value their homes for years. Their online hardware store offers a wide variety of door hardware brands and styles to give any home an improved look. When a buyer opens the front door of a home, a good quality door knob or handle set can make a lasting impression of quality. It’s important to make that initial contact the best possible. Worn out brass door knobs can date a home and make it feel cheap and old. For a few hundred dollars a seller can replace their old door knobs with up to date styles and finishes like oil rubbed bronze or satin nickel. On a tight budget, just upgrading the front door hardware can make a big difference.
Another area of the home that sellers can make a big impact is in the kitchen. Kitchens are one of the most important rooms in the house to a buyer. Adding some stylish cabinet knobs can give the kitchen a refreshing and up to date look and make some bland cabinets look finished and dignified. Good cabinet knobs can be purchased for just a few dollars per knob or less and are generally easy to install making this a simple upgrade for a seller to make.
