The queries on sourcing from India have quadrupled since the time of the pandemic. Every country is looking for an alternative to china. Furniture being the fundamental element for any home or office requirement, there has been a flood of orders at all manufacturing units in jodhpur for the upcoming festive season.
Why source furniture and why hire buying agents in India?
There are thousand and one reasons you should love India, and furniture is one out of the thousand reasons you will love India. India is one of the major exporting countries of furniture. Whether it is wood or metal, a combination of both; or marble and granite; India has the best possible options for exporting in general and furniture in particular.
Since furniture is the major cost bearing integrant for any residential or commercial project, furniture companies want to buy furniture at the best prices and wholesale. An individual will cringe at the prospect of coming to India for his/her home project, hence he goes to the best available options in his country. The wholesale furniture merchant finds it easy to place orders in countries where the labor cost, raw material availability is easy and at the optimum price so that he can build a market and earn profits.
Little surprise then that Walmart is already laid down a strategy to get into partnership with Bharati for the potential it sees in procuring and supplying in diverse segments, furniture is one of the major components of Walmart. Walmart wants to buy from the Indian market for its foreign stores and that is the reason they have a direct sourcing office set in India.Source
For midsize companies tying up with buying houses is better because maintaining an offshore office can add a lot to the overall cost of running a business, whereas a buying house cost on the buyer is only on the dispatches and a certain percentage on each invoice. The risk is minimized in hiring a buying house because the buying house looks after every order knowing the supplier profile, and having good relations with the suppliers. The buying house gets paid only if the merchandise received is faultless.
Another benefit of a buying house over a company-owned office is the advantage of goods inspected by a 3rd party individual/company which is always preferable.
In this, India is the best option since the costs are relatively lower than the home country. We at WeSource have been sourcing furniture from manufacturers who have been in the industry for anywhere between two and five decades. Thus sourcing for us becomes easy and effortless.

- Avoid establishment costs:
Establishing an offshore office can be a humungous task. There is a steady outflow of money. There are fixed costs and there are floating costs. Fixed are in having an office set-up with legal formalities, taxes, purchase and insurance of vehicles, etc. and the floating cost in rental or purchase of property, hiring skilled professionals. Charted accountants, travel expenses, utilities, and this cost is excluding any third party hiring of inspection agencies, surveys, and audits, etc. The best option is to outsource business to avoid these costs.
