How can Hosking Hardwood Flooring sell hardwood flooring for less?

Hosking Hardwood Flooring has been in business for over 75 years and started online sales of retailing hardwood flooring in the mid 1990's and have been selling on a national basis ever since. Because of our sales numbers and our resiliently strong relationships with our hardwood flooring suppliers, manufacturers and trucking companies, we have incredible buying power within the hardwood industry.  We, in turn, pass all of these savings down to you, the consumer.

It really comes down to: our costs are less, so we can sell for less.

There is a downside to internet sales over physical hardwood flooring showrooms: homeowners aren't able to see a product in person, seeing the exact color or feeling the actual texture of the hardwood floor. We try to compensate for this by offering samples of the many hardwood flooring products that we carry. Shoppers on our site are able to order samples of a product with the click of a button and have them shipped directly to you.

We showcase over 50,000 different flooring styles and colors to try to offer that many sample types is impossible. If a particular style and color is not available in samples we recommend going to the manufacturers website such as  Anderson and Quickstep, who are making it easier and easier for consumers to view their products in person by either offering samples directly from their own website or by allowing website visitors to locate a local showroom by utilizing a zip code search. Below is a screenshot from the QuickStep website, where you can get detailed product information as well as order samples to be shipped directly to you.

Are the hardwood flooring products you sell low quality or 2nds?

We are an authorized dealer of every brand we sell and therefore, all products are 1st quality materials with valid manufacturers' warranties. Our low pricing comes from our buying power and our bulk truckload purchases. Overall, shopping for hardwood flooring via Hosking Hardwood Flooring is an easy and money saving option for homeowners looking to add beautiful hardwood flooring to their home.

One of the major benefits of shopping at Hosking Hardwood Flooring is that we carry something at every price point. You can check out our instock specials or our  top grade brands like Somerset and Anderson or our premium collections from Lauzon and Vintage Hardwood Flooring. With space limitations in showrooms, local retailers typically only carry a small fraction of the products that we do.

But what about "Internet Policies" on brands' websites warning against purchasing their hardwood flooring products online?

Again, we are an authorized dealer of every brand that we sell on the Hosking Hardwood Flooring website and our sister store front brick and mortar locations. Many manufacturers include these caveats regarding internet sales on their own websites as a way of guarding against purchases made on eBay or Amazon (where you can't really be sure where the flooring is actually coming from). We comply with all guidelines set forth by hardwood floor manufacturers (including Minimum Advertised Pricing, as discussed further down on this page) and only get our hardwood flooring material from authorized suppliers or, in some cases, directly from the actual hardwood flooring manufacturer. We have excellent relationships with all of the manufacturers we carry and open lines of communication with sales representatives from each.

So what is "Minimum Advertised Pricing?"

Naturally no one likes competition and other retailers are not pleased with any online competition being able to retail the same exact products for a lower price, other flooring stores take the issue back to the manufacturer. The manufacturers, trying to keep everyone happy, put into effect "Minimum Advertised Pricing," or MAP for short. Different manufacturers have different specifics for these policies, but the basis is the same: these are the lowest prices internet retailers are able to post online for particular products.

Not all the manufacturers that we showcase on our site enforce a MAP policy and believe, as we do, that this "price fixing" technique is not fair to the end consumer. Hosking Hardwood Flooring acting in your best interest, can and will save you money.

Save even more on our site: automatic coupons, shipping discounts and "cash" savings

At Hosking Hardwood Flooring, our mission is to save you money on beautiful hardwood flooring. Hardwood flooring has so many advantages, we want our customers to be able to afford a quality hardwood floor for their home and not be forced to settle for less than desirable materials that may be found in a big box store or through a liquidator. Alongside our low product pricing, you'll also find that there are other ways you're saving when you purchase from Hosking Hardwood Flooring.

Some of the products at Hosking Hardwood Flooring feature automatic discounts with a minimum purchase. Products featuring this instant coupon will show a message (shown above) when you click on an individual color and the sale price for that particular color will be crossed out. Simply add a square footage to your cart and you'll be able to see the pricing. These online discounts automatically appear when the minimum carton quantity is added to your cart for a quote. On the cart page, you'll see a discount automatically pop up in red as your PRODUCT DISCOUNT SAVINGS. This discount is automatically applied to your order right then and there --- you don't have to send in a rebate or fill out an online form.

A second way we can save you money on your new hardwood flooring is on the shipping. Hardwood flooring cartons can get pretty heavy. And, if you've ever shipped anything before, you know that the more something weighs, the more it's going to cost to send. We build automatic discounts into the shipping rates for our customers. So, the rate you pay is lower than the actual price we pay to the trucking company for your shipment.

A completely optional discount that many of our customers take advantage of is our "cash discount." We can take 2% off the grand total of your order if you send a check or a wire transfer rather than using a credit card for the purchase. You can opt to add this "cash discount" to your order by placing an order online and choosing the "Pay by Phone" option. Our website will then prompt you to call our office and at that time you can let us know your payment method and we can apply the discount. It's important to keep in mind that we can't process your order until we receive the wire transfer or until the check clears, therefore extending the total lead time in which you'll receive your new hardwood flooring.

Ultimately, we know that a lot of time, thought and money goes into choosing a new hardwood floor for your home. It's our job to help make sure that the money part doesn't break the bank. We invite you to take advantage of our site and the discounts we have to offer.

Terry, by your comment below you are apparently very frustrated with your local flooring stores and didnt take a minute to look through this site to see your options which are clearly shown with pricing. You just came here and spurted your frustration about problems finding flooring locally to you. Take a moment and look around, I did and i found just what I am looking for and am going to order now. Good luck with your search.

We are looking for solid hardwood flooring with character. We have a budget of up to $8/sq. ft. but would of course get the best deal that we can. Basically we are tire of flooring companys senting samples that look great but are out of our price range. So going forward we are going to do this a little different. We will pick so flooring items then ask for the pricing. If in our price range then we would like to see the samples. If a company cant do that we will just "go to the next house" as my dad would say. So can we work this way ? Oh yea I dont know what a rating is so I just picked the first one on the list. My email is tlangston@centurytel.net. Thanks for your time.
