In communities all over the country, there are efforts to promote locally made products. There are so many reasons why these are better buys than purchasing from a business or purveyor that you don’t know. Especially if you have a large or intricate project like a custom woodwork piece that you have your sights set on and if you needed any more reasons, here are a few more things to consider about the benefits of hiring a local professional.
Keep your money local
One of the most important reasons to choose a local professional for your custom woodwork piece is that it keeps your money local. Not only is the local artisan making money on your purchase, but he or she is also paying employees of their own, assuming they have any, and spending the money they make in your local community. One simple act can have a big impact on your local economy.
More input on the product
Another solid reason for choosing a local woodworking professional is the ability to have more input on the creative process. Rather than be confined to emails or telephone calls describing what you want the finished product to be, you can meet one on one and face to face with the artisan helping them to truly understand what you hope to achieve. It’s also nice to see an item progress through the process and to ensure it’s exactly what you want the whole way through.
Save on shipping
This is a no brainer reason to choose local. Shipping can get expensive, especially if the custom piece you have made is big, bulky or solid wood. Consider how much you’ll save on shipping the item to you by choosing a local artisan who can get the job done just as well.
