What Merchandise Should I Buy?
IDX has a wide variety of bulk wholesale truckloads for sale, but what you choose to purchase depends on where you intend to resell the inventory and the level of market saturation for that kind of product.
We have access to brand name inventory from all the big stores and famous retailers that your customers shop at regularly. Some of our flea market vendors, eBay sellers, and discount stores purchase truckloads of general merchandise. Others choose to specialize in one product line, such as clothing or cosmetics.
Example 1: Flea Markets
Most flea markets contain hundreds of clothing vendors. While it’s true that clothing is a hot seller, the market is very saturated, so you may want to consider a different type of merchandise unless you already have a healthy customer base or you’re planning to undercut your competitors on pricing.
Instead, consider offering general merchandise. General merchandise pallets contain random assortments of recognizable, brand name inventory that less vendors will have access to. This gives you a competitive advantage due to scarcity and the variety of goods you can offer.
Tools is another lot you may want to consider. While you’re almost guaranteed to find a vendor selling tools, the products are most often old, heavily used, or taken from their own garage. A pallet of tools from us would again give you an advantage because of the product diversity and higher than average quality; they’re coming directly from your favorite hardware stores.
Example 2: Amazon Sellers
Amazon is known for its strict quality guidelines that sellers must abide by. Our Amazon resellers frequently request overstock pallets from famous companies that charge a premium for everything they offer. Ordering overstock pallets ensures the highest quality of inventory because the goods are brand new and unopened. And, ordering from premium companies, gives the reseller a wide variety of higher priced products that sell better online. Additionally, it’s easier to maximize your returns because you’re able to charge more than customers might pay elsewhere (like the flea market).

Are you local? Schedule a visit.
If you’re in the area, you can schedule a visit by contacting our team through the form on this page. We recommend stopping in to check out the available inventory and purchasing a pallet or two to test it out. Please keep in mind that all on-location inventory is first-come, first serve, and you are responsible for transportation. The majority of our merchandise is sourced directly from retailers on-demand, meaning that if you don’t see what you want, we can order it. Our NYC estate liquidators source some interesting products as well, typically along the lines of antiques and vintage collectibles.
How Do I Minimize Shipping Costs on Wholesale Liquidation Lots?
The relative cost of a truckload is much more favorable than pallets due to shipping prices. Below are a few ways to decrease the cost of shipping:
Option 1: Ship Multiple Pallets
The most common charges associated with shipping are pick-up, delivery, administration, lift-gate service, and a residential address charge, if applicable. All of these are fixed costs, so shipping one pallet will be relatively more expensive than shipping multiple. Beyond the initial flat rate, the total shipping price only increase slightly with each additional pallet. If you’re shipping to a residence or require lift-gate service, it’s even more cost effective to ship multiple pallets at once.
Option 2: Ship to a Local Freight Terminal
While it’s nice to have things delivered straight to your house or apartment, it can be expensive because of the residential delivery fees involved. Instead, ship pallets directly to a local freight terminal to avoid the residential delivery charge. Freight terminals are easy to find in most big areas, and you can rent a truck or a van to pick-up the goods. To determine whether it’s more cost effective to ship to a terminal, consider the following:
- Distance to the freight terminal
- Price of a truck or van rental (if applicable)
- Price of fuel
- Driving time
Option 3: Fill the Entire Truck
When buying large quantities of inventory, like a full truckload, it’s best to fill the entire truck. Most times, shipping fees are flat rate, so the price won’t change whether the truck is half empty or completely full. The average trailer holds anywhere from 24 to 52 pallets. Ask which truck will be used for delivery and then order enough pallets to take up all the extra space. For example, if you were planning to order 20 pallets and the truck can fit 24, order 4 more pallets to decrease the relative shipping price per pallet.
