Why Buy Lab Equipment Online?

As e-commerce becomes increasingly sophisticated and user-friendly, you've probably done a lot of virtual shopping from companies like Amazon and Overstock. But have you considered online retailers as a viable source for purchasing lab equipment?

Benefits of Online Purchasing

Lab equipment is required to meet a number of stringent standards, so when you purchase from a reputable supplier you can be confident in the quality, whether you purchase online or in person.

In addition, there are two major reasons why buying online can be as good as or even better than traditional purchasing:

  • Online buying allows you to browse from the comfort of your office. You can compare features, specs and prices all in the span of a single afternoon.
  • Unlike brick-and-mortar stores, e-stores have a minimum of overhead. They don't have to price their products at a high enough rate to cover salaries, utilities, maintenance and other related expenses.

Questions to Ask When Purchasing Online

Regardless of the ease and convenience of buying equipment online, you still need to complete your due diligence. Before finalizing a purchase, make sure you ask the following questions:

  • How long is the warranty and what does it cover?
  • What are the return and exchange policies?
  • Do you offer payment terms?
  • What is the delivery procedure?
