We BAY AREA RUGS IMPORT receive a new shipmen - almost - every other week.
We buy rugs direct from villages and have them shipped here direct. We try to sell what we receive as soon as possible to be able to import more rugs.
You may see what we have at our warehouse in San Mateo.
If we do not have what you are looking for we can find and import for you. It takes less then 30 days to have shipped here.
We let buyers try rugs at their space before they commit to buy.
We are way more affordable then retail rug stores because, we buy direct.
IMPORTAND KNOWLIDGE: All imports from Iran were banned on August 6th, and rug prices may increase more then you can imagine... This is the time to buy...
We are direct rug importers. In our business model we have eliminated middle men... Most rug stores buy their rugs from 3rd, 4th middle man. That is why they price their rugs for astronomic numbers, such as $100 per sq/ft.
WE MAKE MONEY WHEN WE BUY:
Do not let neither low high prices mislead you. An expensive rug is not always a good rug; and a low priced rug is not always a cheap rug. I have lost costumers because of my low pricing. Once a family, wanted to buy and 8x10 rug from me. My price was $1400. They did not buy. Later on a rug dealer in this area bought the same rug from me...
More or less a week later, the same family came to store and said: "we bought a rug; we want to know what can you tell us about it? We know that you know rugs very well."
The picture they showed me was the rug they sow at my store but did not buy. They had paid $5,600 for the rug I sold for $1400... So, the rug was good but my price was not good for that buyers... I have many stories like this.
WE OWN THE RUGS WE SELL:
Most rug stores - especially large ones - do not own their inventory. Rugs are left to them on consignment. They pay when they sell. That is why they have millions and millions of dollars valuable rugs at stores... So, the young men you see in charge of several 1000s of rugs does not own what he sells. We do not do business this way. We try find the best rug for the possible lowest price.
WE CAN IMPORT THE RIGH RUG FOR YOU:
If we do not have the kind of rug you need, just show us the kind of rug you need. We shall find the rug you need.
The rug you want may be a Persian, Turkish, Afghani, even Indian rug. We have access to all the regions. We have connections in every rugs producing countries. We have been in this business before moving to USA.
WE CLEAN AND REPAIR OUR RUGS OUR SELF:
Rug cleaners charge approximately $4 per sq/st. If you have a 9x12 rug, it will cost you $432. And at least $400 more for restoring some thing small on rug. The total may/will be about $800.
We do all these our self. Our cost of restoring and cleaning is ZERRO.
That is how when others ask $18,000 for a rug, we are able sell for $1800 or less.
