Is it true that if something seems too good to be true, then it probably is? When it comes to paying an unbelievably low cost for your filters—the answer is most likely yes! Chances are, when paying such a low cost, you are sacrificing the quality of your product, and potentially the safety of your customers.
When sourcing your automotive and industrial oil, air and fuel filters, it is extremely important to understand what it means to get a high-quality, cost efficient filter from a reputable company and the effects that lower quality filters can have on your customers. A negative experience with your filters can have a long-term negative effect both on your profits and your company’s reputation.
Does cheap = poor quality?
Purchasing filters at rock bottom pricing can seem like a logical move for your company, but do you really know what you are getting at that amazing price? When purchasing your filters at low cost, you should keep the following three requirements in mind:
- Media and material quality
- Design and fit
When a manufacturer produces a line of filters, they have to take the cost of materials into consideration when setting the price. They also have to ensure that your filter is designed to fit your equipment perfectly will maintain safety and quality standards through the life of the filter.
What are the risks of a super low price, low-quality filter?
In order to provide extremely low pricing on filters, less-than reputable suppliers look to cut corners. This creates 3 risks for you, the buyer:
- Compromising on the quality of the media used for your product
- Design not being accurate to OE-level standards
- Purchasing a product that may have gone through less rigorous, and in some cases no testing
The most damaging potential risk is to your reputation with your customers and in the automotive and industrial industries which can affect the long-term profitability of your part.
