Many of our clients sometimes discuss with us times where they are quoted much cheaper prices for large palms and trees. Time and time again, the old saying "if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is" proves to be true. Many of  you have personally experienced or know someone who has experienced the displeasure of dealing with a company that promises the world, but never delivers. Unfortunately, there are many crooks out there who will even take your money and never ship the product. These people do not have nurseries, or offices, or store fronts; they work out of their trucks, use cell phones and po boxes and you will never find them.

So...we at South Coast Wholesale feel this saying (written in the 1800's) could not be more appropriate.

The Common Law of Business Balance

It's unwise to pay too much,
but it's worse to pay too little.
When you pay too much
you lose a little money - that is all.

When you pay too little
you sometimes lose everything,
because the thing you bought was incapable
of doing the things it was bought to do.

The common law of business balance
prohibits paying a little and getting a lot,
it can't be done.

If you deal with the lowest bidder,
it is well to add something for the risk you run,
and if you do that you will have enough
to pay for something better.

John Ruskin
1819-1900
