You are in the position of having to buy a commercial vacuum cleaner. Which brand should I get, Sanitaire, Oreck, Thermax, or one of the many other heavy-duty vacuums on the market? Also, if you buy locally, it’s always good to help your local economy.

Or should I shop online and get the best price? Generally, the best price wins in a business buying decision. However, there are other considerations to think about before making that decision. Does the company you are considering doing business with offer a money back guarantee, have good customer service, accept different credit cards and not just Paypal?

Plus, you have a lot of options when it comes to style. There are the old standbys that everyone is familiar with, like the upright vacuum cleaner that Sanitaire makes. Sanitaire also makes a backpack vacuum that is useful for certain specific jobs. The Thermax vacuum cleaner is a specialized unit that combines vacuuming and steam cleaning in one machine. The Thermax vacuum cleaner is in a class of its own and truly is the best in its category.

The Oreck vacuum cleaner is well known throughout the United States. Some people are comfortable buying a unit that is heavily advertised on television and in magazines. However, a lot of advertising usually means a higher cost. The main advantage that Oreck has over all the others is that it is light.

Shop around, check prices, and make sure the company you’re going to do business with has been around for a while. If you do that, you should make the right decision.
