Get Treated Like A Member of The FAMILY
I sell Shea Butter & Body Products. Porter Bottle Company was suggested to me by one of my customers and was new to me. I guess theyve been in business for more than 70 years but I had never heard of them. I was really happy to learn of them tho!
First off: It's a family business. They spent a long time with me and my husband and answered all of our questions. We had been buying from two container websites and when we called them on the phone to ask questions, it always seemed like we were a bother (one of the online companys will only take orders for more than $100 over the phone!)
The Porters let my husband, who was not feeling well, sit down and brought us each a bottle of water from their kitchen. My husband sat at the owners' desk while the boss stood.
Second: The prices were a few cents more than the prices on the website... before paying shipping and handling. Okay so I picked up and the price was much cheaper because of it but if you are reading this from out of town, here's why you should buy from the Porters...
I was paying $31 & change from one of the websites for shipping & HANDLING and it seemed okay. When I mentioned it to Mr. Porter he asked me how many and what type of bottles I bought. When I told him, he got a funny look on his face, went to a shelf and had his cousin weigh the 4 containers on a scale. He then looked up how much the ACTUAL SHIPPING was cost from that companies zip code to my home in Royal Oak, MI. Guess what, for my $115.00 of bottles, the shipping should have cost around $19.00. The other company had overcharged me $12!!! Mr. Porter explained to me that his company only charge for shipping, not handling so if I needed bottles while I am at a show in Chicago this summer for instance, it will only cost me about $12.20. I really appreciated that and I think you would to!
Third: This is a small business, not just a family business. They work real hard. While I was there I saw them running around filling orders, working with customers, and doing little things that most customers probably don't even appreciate,, all with smiles on their faces. Small businesses like these are not found very often. Support this one. If you need containers, buy them from Porter Bottle Company and get treated like a member of the FAMILY.
Thanks for reading this!! I hope you find it helpful!
