Parts and Supplies Stocking Programs Still Make Sense for HVAC Business

Preparing for the months ahead makes sense in a business that shifts so markedly with the seasons. Participating in your distributor's seasonal parts and supplies stocking program may not feel like a priority when online ordering and same-day delivery are available, but doing so can help you prepare, and offers the following benefits:

  • Save on labor costs incurred with fewer trips back and forth to pick up commonly used seasonal supplies.

  • Earn extra incentives which can offset the cost of carrying added inventory.

  • The risk of stocking up is low since many programs offer low buy-in levels and allow for rebalance of unused inventory at the end of the season.

  • Stocking programs generally offer a competitive price, and some even offer price protection that lasts throughout the bulk of the season.

  • Programs may contain universal and OEM service parts for the brand of equipment you carry, so you can order your most common replacement parts.

  • Stocking up can help ensure availability of the parts and supplies that you need before the rush.

Set yourself up for a smooth season. Let your Stevens Equipment Supply HVAC Territory Manager help you with your Parts and Supplies Preseason order.
