If you need to source general purpose batteries for your retail business, you may find it tempting to import them from abroad. You may believe it is the cheaper option. However, we believe it is far better to order your batteries from a UK wholesaler like us. There are several reasons why ordering your wholesale batteries from a UK-based supplier is wiser than obtaining them from abroad. You may be surprised by some of them.

1. Cost

While it may seem cheaper to buy batteries internationally, the shipping costs can be prohibitive. Any savings you make on the batteries themselves can be cancelled out by the cost of importation. The cost of importing batteries is particularly high because sending certain batteries using the Royal Mail’s networks is currently prohibited. It can be more cost-effective to buy batteries from UK suppliers. While we can’t use the Royal Mail to send certain batteries, we don’t have to worry about other importation costs, which allows us to keep our costs lower.

2. Quality

When you import batteries from abroad, you have no way of knowing whether they will be of decent quality. It is harder to hold international sellers accountable for the quality of their products, so it is usually wiser to purchase your batteries from a UK wholesaler instead. Here at House of Batteries, we can guarantee that every battery we sell is of impeccable quality because they come from highly-respected manufacturers such as Duracell and Philips.

3. Age

Batteries can deteriorate and lose their charge over time. If you order your batteries from abroad, you may find out that they are older than you expect. You can’t be sure of the age of imported batteries for the same reason you can’t be sure of their quality. By the time they arrive, they may even be too old to be usable. Obtaining your batteries from a UK wholesaler like us ensures that they will be within data.

Here at House of Batteries, we aim to ensure that every battery you buy from us is reasonably priced, high-quality and new. Don’t waste your money on imported batteries: contact us instead!
