NZ Micro-Market - 1. Hardware Stall

Designed especially for Kiwi DIY enthusiasts. (Under development)

INTRODUCTION

  • If you are a ‘DIY‘ enthusiast, or a professional handyman, or even a building contractor, you will have many times experienced the situation where a special trip to the hardware store is necessary in order to obtain one or two very small items of hardware that are needed to finish off a job. Furthermore, especially where fixings (nails, scews, bolts etc) are required, you are often obliged to buy quantities in excess of your immediate needs because they are packaged in twenties, or fifties etc.
  • Buying (say) a half dozen screws, therefore, can be a very expensive and time consuming business, because not only could you have spent the time taken in doing something more useful, but also because your travel cost works out at about 75 cents per kilometre (AA rate for fuel + wear & tear) and the further you are based away from a good hardware store, the more expensive in both respects the exercise becomes. Then to cap it all, you are left with a surplus of a particular size/type of fixing that you might never need again! 
  • For hardware requirements that are not immediately desperate, therefore, on-line buying in small quantities is the obvious answer for cost and time savings, with the added advantage that you can browse and make choices at leisure.
  • We kick off with a limited selection of surplus (unused) items on offer to Kiwis and purchases will be processed during the development period.

FOR EXAMPLE:

Let's say your base is 3 km from a major hardware store that caters for every possible need. - Your buying trip will take in the region of 30-45 minutes and involve a total distance of 6 km. ie Costing +/- $5.00, plus the value of your time, which might be $30.00 or more. (And what if you are not 3, but 30 km from a major store?)

By comparison, at least whenever convenient, buying on-line and taking delivery within a few days, becomes a 'no-brainer'! In this day and age of rapidly increasing fuel costs you will more than cover the costs of mailing or couriering goods to you. In respect of the above example you would be comparing a cost of say $10.00 versus $35.00!

Guidance notes follow.
