I am considering buying customer returns from the likes of Argos and catalog companies. Without going into specifics i'm looking at a niche product (s) which is electrical. My understanding is that a lot of these pallets are untested returns which can mean anything from nothing wrong with item just customer did not want it to faulty / missing parts and damaged packaging. Obviously you get what you pay for as the saying goes and typically the cost is around 15% of r.r.p. My idea is to take a short course to enable me to carry out basic repairs to any faulty items and then re-sell at a considerable saving on retail cost but still allowing me a good margin via a mix of retail channels. I'm still in the planning stage so looking for any advice from others who might have tried similar idea's buying from the likes of Marthill, Argos Clearance, Gem Wholesale etc and anything else i might need to consider.
