Wholesale Container Load

How Does Our Wholesale Container Load Program Work?

If you are a retailer with warehousing space and a budget to spend on stock our Wholesale Container Load programme could be just right for you. By purchasing either a 20ft or 40ft container direct from us you can take advantage of increased savings over our usual trade prices and also benefit from unlimited customisation opportunities to make our products your own. 

As an experienced manufacturer and supplier of high quality furniture to the 4 and 5 star hotel industry and established retailers such as John Lewis we take on full responsibility to ensure that the products that you order are of the highest quality and meet all British standards.

Advantages of being a member of our Wholesale Program

Pricing – up to 30% price advantage

Once you sign up on Distinction Furniture you can have access to our trade prices, please note these are trade prices in pound sterling. Once you shortlist the products, we would be in a position to offer you wholesale prices, which can be lowered by up to 30% off the trade prices. The percentage reduction will depend on a variety of factors such as:

  • The volume of your order (20ft or 40ft HC container)
  • Delivery Country
  • If you want the products port delivered (FOB) or door delivered


Currency Choices and Payment Terms (Deposit and Payment)

We require a 30% deposit, at the time of the confirmation of your order, and the balance payment needs to be organised 7 days before delivery of the shipment. The currency for the Wholesale program is strictly Pound Sterling (£).

All payments need to be made through Bank-to-Bank/Wire transfer, into the respective accounts based on the currency of your choice.
