Seven Tips On How To Find A Reliable
Diabetic Supplies Company

This has become a very profitable industry, and there are many frauds and shysters just lurking to take your money. The incidence of diabetes has increased so rapidly that the market is huge and it keeps growing. You need to be on the lookout and you need to know what to look for when you are making this decision.

You may be able to go down the street and find a reliable vendor for these necessary diabetic supplies or you may need to go online and have a vendor ship what you need. Look at both possibilities before you commit to one.

Things to Look for in a Diabetic Supply Merchant

  1. Do they have a money-back guarantee just as Wal-Mart and K-Mart do?
  1. Is the company located in the United States or Canada? It's important to avoid diabetes supplies companies located any place outside of North America. The shipping tends to be less reliable and Customs may hold onto your shipment. Also, it's easier for those farther away to rip you off.
  1. Do they have a return address, not a P.O. Box? In fact, a P.O. Box number for a company is a clue that they may not even be a real business. You don't want to get stuck with a fly-by-night seller who is getting the diabetic testing products from eBay and reselling them.
  1. Do they have a 1-800 number that you can reach around the clock? You don't want to have to settle a problem by e-mail. Just make sure there's a way to reach them by phone when you need them.
  1. When you call the telephone number to check it out, is there a person who can answer your questions and who has in-depth knowledge about diabetes testing and medical supplies? Fly-by-nighters hand off the billing to another company who only bills and takes your credit card information. Not a good sign! Ask the person you get when you call whether they are a billing center. They should be able to answer simple questions about the company. If they can't, that's the signal to move on to another vendor.
  1. Is there a pharmacist or a certified diabetes educator on hand when you call? The big, efficiently-operated firms have this. Amateurs do not. You may need information about traveling with your supplies. You may need to know what happens when they're exposed to freezing temperatures, etc. You want someone who knows to answer your questions when you need the information.
  1. Check on shipping prices. The company may be making its money on the shipping. If you're getting a good price on the supplies but are being soaked when it comes to shipping, you need to move on to another company.
