4 Recommendations for Buying Discount Medical Supplies

You've finally decided that you want to be safer in your own home.

Your parent wants to stay at home longer and you worry about their safety.

You can't be his caregiver but he still needs the assistance.

What do you do and where do you start?

Firstly, kudos to you for picking safety and pre-planning over fear.  It's easier to twiddle our thumbs all day worrying about what we can and can't afford than to actually take precautions.  And believe me, buying a bath safety chair is much less expensive than replacing a hip.  Carex® Adjustable Bath and Shower Seat

So you know that your loved one needs some assistance in the home.  Having these medical supplies on hand and delivered straight to her door is mentally less worrisome than figuring out who needs what, who is driving to the store to get the incontinence supplies, will the store have specialty products (probably not), etc etc. Tranquility® SlimLine® Breathable Brief

Go online and buy what you need.  In today's day and age, website shopping is secure (see the https on the web address bar), it's easier (the internet is open 24/7/365), and it gives you thousands of variations on any one theme (the internet always has the color of walker that you want).

But maybe you are still hesitant.  We Get It!  Here are our 4 recommendations for buying wholesale medical supplies online:

1.  Is the online store secure?  Do they show you security symbols at checkout?  Is their web address https?  Do they accept PayPal or have an alternative credit card processor that is accredited (for example Stripe)?  Do they have a visible return or refund policy?

2.  Does the website look updated?  Does it look like business is performed regularly or does it look like the "shelves" haven't been dusted in 10 years?  Do they have customer testimonials?  Do they have product reviews?  Does your gut say that there is someone on the other end of the line?  Is a phone number even offered or a current way to contact someone?

3.  Do the products show clear images?  Are there images at all?  Are you able to see all of the different colors or prints available or do they just tell you a print is offered without showing it to you?  Do the images match the products and descriptions?

4. And finally, what does your gut say?  Does the website look reputable?  Does it work when you try to checkout?  Do you get the appropriate order confirmations and shipping confirmations emailed to you?

If you said NO to any of these 4 suggestions, please take a good, long look and then either purchase or move on.  

There are a thousand wholesale medical supply sites out there.  You deserve to served by one that will fulfill your needs quickly and securely.
