10 Benefits of Shopping Local for Safety Storage

There are various reasons why people shopping for anything would opt for buying outside Australia for whatever needs they may have. However, shopping locally can have so much impact, more than it can impact our wallets.

It’s no question that the still ongoing pandemic has changed the way people shop, and think about shopping. However, the benefits of going shopping locally remain the same.


1.  Convenience.

The number one obvious benefit of buying locally made safety storage is convenience. You don’t have to wait weeks for your order to arrive, which greatly cuts your lead-times to perhaps more than half.

It is therefore no wonder that most Australians would opt to shop locally because of its proximity to home. Shipping domestically is significantly less expensive and more reasonable than shipping internationally, which comes with long wait times for your products/items to arrive.


2.  Reduces carbon footprint.

Australians, in particular, care so much about the environment and are conscious about environmental impacts with each and every product they use and consume.

Buying local would mean curtailing their reliance on foreign made safety products that need to be transported by vessels using fossil fuels to power them from their country of origin into Australia.

Buying local reduces the carbon footprint of these items and need only travel a significantly short distance and delivered to your place of business.


3.  You contribute in investing in your community.

Shopping for locally made storage helps in uplifting local businesses and manufacturing. But it also helps in propping up a wider local economy and community.

Consider, too, that every direct job in manufacturing in Australia leads to another 4 jobs in the local economy.


4.  Quality control.

Australia has probably the strictest quality control system in place that also covers manufacturing safety and high labour standards. This means that for each item you buy that is made in Australia, including safety storage devices, meet the minimum safety and quality standards and complies with Australian safety standards.

Australian products are made with the highest standards, so you can be assured that when you buy local, you are getting something premium for your dollars, and they are guaranteed to last.


5.  Helps in creating demand for local jobs.

Apart from being able to invest in your community, buying local also help in improving employment rates in the country. Buying local would mean there would be a need to produce more products, which translates to having the need for more people to be hired in creating/manufacturing these products.

A decision to buy Australian products has a ripple effect that benefits families and local communities while putting money back into the economy for all of us to benefit.


6.  Improved customisation and customer service.

At Wholesale Safety Australia (WSSA), we can incorporate any specific customisation or specific requirements you might have with any of our existing range of products. We can meet those needs promptly and still comply with existing government regulations and safety laws.

Get in touch with our team who are always available to respond to your queries and concerns.


7.  Environmental sustainability.

Apart from adhering to strict quality, safety, and labour laws, Australian businesses are required to follow strict environmental policies and guidelines.

Buying Australian made products help the environment by producing products of superb quality, which means they last longer, giving you more return on your investment. This also translates to lesser used up or unserviceable products ending up in landfills.


8.  You help in retaining skilled workers in Australia.

Offshore manufacturing has greatly impacted the number of skilled workers in the country. If you don’t support Australian, a lot of industries may follow suit and close shop, further contributing to the decline of the number of skilled workers that we have.


9.  Safety.

Australian products are assured of safety for consumers. This means that they are free of any biological and chemical contaminants. As with the case for WSSA Safety Storage products, they come to you without any contaminants that may affect your health and that of your workers once delivered into your place of business. 

Additionally, our products are delivered ready to use with no additional assembly required. Thereby, eliminating any injuries that may occur during assembly before use.


10.  Support the local economy.

10 Benefits of Shopping Local for Safety StoragePerhaps the most obvious in buying local is that you are keeping the money within Australia. Having the capital within the Australian economy benefits local companies, which means tax revenue for the government also benefits, and more.

We can grow manufacturing industries that work in harmony with local retailers and continue to be a part of the backbone of our communities by supporting local business, local jobs, environmental accountability, and end-of-life disposal.

Wholesale Safety Storage Australia is proud to be an Australian-owned and loved brand that values local outcomes and empowers the promotion of buying Australian.

Tailgate Delivery Terms and Conditions

Any additional handling or manoeuvring to get the items in to position that requires specialised equipment, such as a tailgated truck or a truck mounted forklift, is not covered by any free freight offers.

For those who are new to freight, a tailgate truck (also known as a tail-lift truck or hydraulic truck) has a rear platform which can be lowered to the ground for convenience when unloading heavy goods.  This is a requirement for unloading freight over 30kg when a forklift is not available on site to unload the delivery vehicle.  Carriers class this as a specialised delivery service, and charge a premium for tailgate deliveries.

Tailgate delivery is to the front door, carport, or closest practical delivery point as deemed by the driver. There must be reasonable vehicle access with height clearance.

Tailgate shipping adds an extra $135 + gst to shipping fees during checkout to cover costs.

NOTE: Selecting the WRONG answer in regards to tailgate shipping means the carrier may be unable to unload your items and may need to re-deliver it.  The Customer will be liable for any further charges for re-delivery should this occur.  Should you have questions or if you are unsure please contact us first.
