British volume wholesale buyers can secure great deals on supplier or manufacturer wholesale pallets or stocklots. These are usually closeout products that are no longer in production or are product returns, and they are packaged in bulk for quick sale to clear inventory room.

However, the quality and variety of products contained in a wholesale stocklot can be varied and disappointing. Sometimes the manufacturer produces poor quality, or the returned products are damaged.  Subsequently, you must take great care in ordering quality grade wholesale pallets from trusted sources.
Questions to Ask the Seller

When you are buying a wholesale stocklot, there is usually no picking and choosing. You buy the entire pallet or nothing at all.  Subsequently, when making purchases of wholesale stocklots, you should ask the seller several questions.

Ask the seller exactly what is contained in the pallet. Is it a stock of the same item? Does the wholesale pallet contain similar goods like electronics or children’s toys? Or is it a mixed pallet with a variety of goods that are either on closeout or returned by customers?

These questions will give you a good idea of what to expect in your stocklot. Often you can get great deals on wholesale stocklots, but the buyer should always beware! You could be purchasing a stocklot with hard-to-sell items that will stay in your inventory or garage for years. Or a wholesaler may say that their £500 pallet will resell for £5,000, which may be its highest potential value. In actuality, you may only be able to sell for £2,000, £1,000, or less.

Buying Mixed Wholesale Pallets

When you purchase a mixed wholesale pallet, you are often getting a grab-bag of goods. This is when you must trust your seller to know that they are selling quality products and not damaged items that will not fetch a profit.

Ask for assurances from the wholesaler. If possible, check the pallets yourself. Look for ‘evergreen’ items. These are items that are always a sure bet to resell to customers, especially through online markets like eBay or Amazon Marketplace. Evergreen items might include designer clothing, electronic gadgets, jewellery, designer handbags, etc.
Choose Graded Stock

A wholesale pallet seller should have graded labels on each stocklot. This gives you an idea of what is contained in the pallet and the general condition of the items.

Clearance – Stock that has been cleared from a manufacturer to clear inventory space.
Letter Graded – Items listed as “A” grade are generally still in original packaging or have no defects. “B” grade items may be used or repackaged, have slight damage, but are still in working condition. “C” grade items are no longer in the original packaging, or they are items that no longer work or have serious defects.
Returns/Mixed Returns – These are wholesale pallets of items returned by customers. Mixed returns contain a variety of items.
Scrap – These are items that can be sold for spare parts.
Clothing Grade – Returned or used clothing may be Grade 1 or 2. Higher grades have perhaps a small defect, while grade 2 has visible signs of wear or damage.
Buying wholesale pallets is a great way to obtain items or inventory for resell, but only if you pay close attention to what you can really expect in the stocklot.
