The Builder Depot is always asked about our inventory contractors and major home builders wish to buy large quantities but we have had some inventory issues. Actually the inventory issue is not so much to do with getting a ‘Carrara product’, getting Carrara is relatively easy getting good Carrara is not. There are many quarries and factories that can ship what they consider Carrara. In fact we could order 240 pallets today but it would be ‘Gray Carrara’, ‘Chinese white’ or ‘Turkish Carrara’, there is so much Turkish Carrara on the market today.
Turkish Carrara is a terrible looking product, a quartz appearance in the stone along with gray smudges that the wholesales contests is veining. Turkish Carrara is not Carrara it is not from Carrara Italy in many countries Britain for example this marketing trickery is illegal it would fall under the ‘Trade Description Act’ as essentially a fake with the intention to deceive the consumer. How business especially our online competitors can sell this product and not state that it is from Turkey and be upfront with the consumer is quite astonishing.
Our Carrara is a product we have selected for is white base appearance. It is the best in the market today – compared to Walker Zanger or Ann Sacks our product is better in appearance but also saves 70% when buying online from us (do not take our word for it – you can order a sample online today). So we have:
- The Best Carrara marble collection in the USA
- The lowest prices in the USA
- Limited availability of white based Italian Carrara
- High demand for genuine Italian Carrara
