You are in the position of having to buy a commercial vacuum cleaner. What brand should you get, Sanitaire, Oreck, Thermax, or one of the many other heavy duty vacuum cleaners on the market? Also, should you buy locally, it’s always good to help your local economy.
Or, should you shop on the internet and get the best price? Generally, the best price wins in a business buying decision. However, there are other considerations to think about before making that decision. Does the company that you are considering doing business with offer a money back guarantee, do they have good customer support, do they accept different credit cards and not just Paypal only.
Also, you have many choices when it comes to style. There are the old standbys that everyone is familiar with like the upright vacuum cleaner that Sanitaire makes. Sanitaire also makes a backpack vacuum that is handy for certain specific jobs. The Thermax vacuum is a specialized unit in that it combines both vacuuming and steam cleaning all in one machine. The Thermax vacuum is in a class all by itself and really is the top of the line in that category.
The Oreck vacuum is well known throughout the United States. Some people feel comfortable buying a unit that is advertised a lot on television and in magazines. However, a lot of advertising usually means a higher cost. The primary advantage that Oreck has over all others is that it is lightweight.
Shop around, check prices, and make sure the company you are going to do business with has been around awhile. If you do that you should make the right decision.
