Quality Log Cabins from a manufacturer who cares!
When your looking for a unique log cabin, you must firstly ask yourself, if the log cabin Superstore type dealer can offer uniqueness, quality, and of course competitive pricing.
In the age of mass production, and over supply, the need for lower pricing to get rid of mass-produced substandard log cabins has now entered a new phase in our industry.
(This cabin above is fitted with CE quality residential windows and doors, they are fitted correctly and as you can see prepainted ,these are the best windows and doors in the industry hands down.)
Quality of build is not a log cabin superstore trait, mass production cabins are as they are advertised, cheap, and when something is cheap, it is a lucky dip on if you receive a quality cabin, or a pile of lumber fit only for bonfire night!
As a manufacturer, we really believe in designing cabins that are fit for purpose, we are not running with the pack, our aim is quality, not quantity.
There are a few companies that also have the same ethos as us.
However saying that I have heard, some German companies who manufacture log cabins claim to be as one idiot told me the crème la crème of the industry, how ever if you think charging customers 3x the value for a 5m x 5m in 45mm above everyone else is crème la crème, well, sadly I call is utter greed. And I say to my german brother and sisters, the Brits are not stupid!
There are a few dealers out there that have had training from their suppliers of cabins how to hype the brand, they actually are taught how to lie, and claim the brand they are pushing is amazing, and that’s why the price is super high.
Normally this is done to the elderly or gullible and of course the promise of amazing quality seals the deal, and of course the resellers receives the handsome profit. Actually the resellers earn more money than the manufacturer.
Hence, the market is awash with crooks, liars and conmen, and not forgetting substandard, also over priced log cabins.
It is very important how to choose the right company to purchase your log cabin.
What are the signs to look for?
Firstly look to see the different kinds of brand of cabins, the resellers will have the brand marked as part of the range, then look online and see how many dealers that brand of cabins manufacturer they have nation wide, worldwide. If they have over 100, they are busy players, which means MASS PRODUCTION, which means, a high speed, in out product. Means problems and missing parts and normally cheap logs.
Next,,,, ask the sub-dealer to send you the price of the cabin and close ups of the windows and doors, and if they proclaim their windows and doors are CE certified ask them to provide the certificate for that. Also send his quote to other dealers of the same brand, you will always find one of them will undercut him by 100’s, so it’s worth doing it! The cabins are cheap, so their profits should be lower, not higher. You the customer should win, not a greedy, fat lazy, reseller.
Our dealers, are amazing, they all work with customer from beginning till end, they only sell LV and what’s more important, they all charge sensibly. Greedy dealers, or dealers that fail to perform and offer a good fitting service, or over charge, are here today, and gone completely tomorrow.
Please remember when buying from bulk sellers, make sure that when your windows and doors are delivered they are the exactly same as the ones advertised, if they are not return the cabin, and call the credit card company.
Remember log cabin superstore type resellers are often selling numerous brands of different log cabins, which is a good indication that they are in the industry for the money only, and these type of resellers are normally here today gone tomorrow.
You will notice if you look on Google, that the most successful companies only sell their own brand, they believe in their own brand, and they are more likely to offer a better log cabin, better customer service, and will know their buildings inside out.
