Why Buy From Us?

Hello, and welcome.  So glad you’re here.  

In 1987 our founders started what became DaltonCarpet.com, located in the carpet capitol of the world, Dalton, GA.  As a husband and wife team they recognized the need for a way for people to buy carpet direct and save money. They saw that many times the way carpet was being “retailed” was simply inefficient, causing extremely high prices.  Carpet is different from other stuff we buy.  It’s big.  It’s bulky.  Handling carpet was expensive.  And making it more expensive is having to pay for retail space to store the carpet for months, and once sold had to be picked up and delivered again, this time to the consumer.  So we decided to do it differently.  We ship direct to you, without a middleman and all that extra expense.  By shipping direct, that alone can bring the cost down by about 20%, and that’s only the beginning of savings of buying direct.  That’s good for you!  So now you know when you see a good savings from us, it’s not because it’s “too good to be true”, it’s because we have found the most efficient and cost effective way of buying and shipping quality flooring.
 
With a history of working in carpet mills and sales, they already knew about the carpet industry and products, but just needed to figure out a way to get the carpet to the consumer direct and inexpensive.  After much research, they were able to contact a few freight carriers that did haul carpet, and this completed the task of knowing this could be a reality.  They begin advertising in newspapers and national magazines, and what was once a passing thought and dream, began with a small office and a used truck.  Through the years the business grew through two warehouses. 
 
Since that time, the mission has never changed.  For more than 32 years our goal has always been to provide flooring made with a higher level of technology and fibers.  And as always we take pride in the best, most personal customer service, and expert advice, in the industry.  If you have any questions or feedback, please don’t hesitate to reach out.  If you find a better price, we would like nothing better than for you to contact us and give us an opportunity to sharpen our pencil for you.
 
Today, we are thankful for our many quality partners.  We continue to offer the best products on the market, but at direct pricing.  We partner with some of the best from Shaw, Floorte’, Mohawk, Tuftex, Engineered Floors, US Floors, our quality tufters, dye houses, and many, many more.  
 
Our company values each and every customer.  To our new clients, you are the lifeblood of our business, and we are excited to help you as you complete your flooring project.  And to our continued patrons, we could not have done this without you.  As a customer you are not a distraction to us, you are the reason we have a job.  It is our pleasure to serve you!

Save Money on Your Carpet Experience

We all have dreams and ideas for the special place we call home. Whether it's a new home you are building or a remodel that you have been saving up time and money to accomplish. But more often than not, our dreams and ideas are cut short when it comes to flooring. Why? Because often times retail pricing puts the look we want out of our budget. Most choose not to go forward simply because the cost is simply too great. We want to help make your ideas a reality! That's why we at DaltonCarpet.com make it affordable to put your ideas on the floor. With savings up to 50%, you have just given yourself more options.

Buy Direct

Did you know that almost half of every dollar you spend on a retail carpet goes directly into the retailer's pocket? When you buy direct from DaltonCarpet.com, you get wholesale discount pricing without the hidden retail markup. The truth about shipping costs...

If you decide to purchase carpet from a wholesaler, the seller will find the best shipping rate based on contracts they have established with common carriers. In some areas of the country, this can be as little as $.35 a yard. While freight charges have escalated recently, remember... your local carpet retailer pays these same rates to ship carpet from Dalton GA to their showroom!Retailers simply build in your shipping costs. Why not know exactly what you're being charged?

Make The Right Choice

Experienced and established discount carpet wholesalers, like Daltoncarpet.com, are more knowledgeable about carpet construction and performance because they are based in the carpet manufacturer hub, therefore, they can help you make the best choice for your project from the beginning and avoid costly mistakes.

Do The Work Yourself

You’re probably not able to install the carpet—leave that to the professional carpet installers. However, you can save money by taking up the old carpet and pad. You can save money by moving your furniture in and out of the rooms. The tear up of your carpet might be messy and dirty. You will need to make arrangements to have the old pad and carpet hauled away.

Planning Can Save You Dollars

If you need the carpet installed for your daughter’s wedding on Saturday, you will pay a premium price and have fewer carpet choices. (Not a good deal!) By giving yourself more flexibility about when you need the carpet and the types of carpet choices, you gain the upper hand. You control the shopping process rather than being controlled by other circumstances in your life.

Don't Pay For Carpet Quality You Don't Need

No sense spending $25 per square yard for carpet when you expect to move or build in two years. On the other hand, spending too little may result in uncleanable, flat, dead carpet on the floor for many years to come. Keep in mind that most carpet doesn't "wear out" as much as it "uglies out."

Beware of Marketing Ploys

  1. Private Labeling
    There are a lot of different carpet brand names to choose from. And although many of these brands are the same type and quality of carpet, they are all sold at different prices. Actually, many different carpet brands are the exact same carpet with different names. A lot of big-box and chain stores do this to hide your ability to shop prices, in fact, they enjoy this confusion because it helps them maintain their high-profit margins which pay for their large, expensive retail stores. Buying direct from DaltonCarpet.com avoids those expensive traps and gives you value in your flooring purchase.
  2. The “Fiber Face Weight” Ripoff
    This happens when a sales person tells you that a carpet has a face weight that is higher than it actually is. They know that if a customer wants to get an actual face weight measurement, that customer would have to spend at least $200 to have the carpet tested, and that is only if the customer could figure out how to go about having it tested. Unfortunately, it is common in the carpet industry for sales people to inflate these numbers when they know you will probably never know the truth, all done in order to get a sale. The only real way to be sure of your face weight is to buy from an established carpet supplier who is honest enough to put the weight in writing (either online or in spec form on their samples). nbsp; At DaltonCarpet.com you will always find the face weight and total weight printed for your peace of mind. We have been in business for over 25 years - you can count on DaltonCarpet.com for accurate information for a good experience in your flooring purchase.
  3. The “Pad/Carpet Cushion Weight Density” Ripoff
    This happens when a sales person tells you that a carpet pad has a density that is higher than it actually is. Again they know that it would be almost impossible for a customer to get an actual pad weight density measurement. Unfortunately, it is common in the big box stores for sales people to lie or ignorantly give you wrong information when they know you will probably never know the truth in order to get a sale. The only real way to be sure of your pad weight density is to buy from an established carpet supplier who is honest enough to put the pad weight density in writing (either online or in spec form on their samples). At DaltonCarpet.com you will always find the pad weight density printed for your peace of mind. 
  4. The “Guaranteed Lowest Price” Ploy
    Retailers, usually big box or chain stores, who offer this guarantee can do so because they are private labeling the brand that is being guaranteed. That retailer is the only retailer that carries that brand of carpet, which is why they can not be undersold. You can usually find a better value elsewhere.

If you are thinking about buying carpet, the first bit of advice is to get to know the person you will be buying from. The cheapest dealer is not always the best. You want to find someone whom you can trust and who understands carpet. Buying carpet should be a pleasant experience. Buying from someone who tries to sell you carpet that is not well suited to your needs will make it a miserable experience. At DaltonCarpet.com, we know flooring its all we do and we've been doing it for over 25 years. Our job is selling flooring. Saving you money is our pleasure!
