Last year, I toured a flagpole warehouse in the western area of the United States. This supplier of steel and aluminum flagpoles has been in business for years and has been serving the western area of the United States proudly and diligently. The tour of the warehouse was fascinating, to say the very least.
Once the tour concluded I sat down with one of the warehouse workers and asked if they had specific flagpoles for sale that season. Interestingly he said that they had numerous poles that had some scratches and dents with substantial discounts. The “damaged” aluminum (and sometimes steel) flag poles were referred to as “used poles.”
Every so often, items or products might be subject to a scratch or dent as a result of some “inconsistencies” during the manufacturing or production process. These scratches and or dents very often will result in a product that has a substantial discount placed on it in order for it to be sold. The same applies to flagpoles, making these types of poles for customers seeking for a new flagpole for their front-yard of business interesting flag poles for sale.
These flagpole inconsistencies can often times not be seen from a yard or so away. Finishes applied to flagpoles can do a good job a hiding these inconsistencies make these damaged poles look like brand new! Damaged aluminum flagpoles (or used flag poles for sale as referred to by flagpole suppliers) can become cheaper alternatives to new looking poles.
These flag poles for sale or used poles as defined by flag pole suppliers are usually produced out of aluminum. Flag poles made out of this metal type are relatively strong yet very light and also maintenance free. Different finishes are made available by suppliers and help disappear pole inconsistencies making damaged flagpoles great flag poles for sale!
After many years of research (during the early 19th century) aluminum was first used as a construction material for segments of the Washington Monument (end of the 19th century). Today, it has been as a construction material for more than two centuries.
To those of you shopping around for new poles and finding ways to save this patriotic season, make sure to request more information from flagpole suppliers about their flag poles for sale!
