All buyers who request their equipment on Proficircle can choose between different quality and type of materials of the vendors once the prices are submitted in a comparative table. 

Do we get a material and spec sheet from the supplier?

Yes, all buyers can request from each of the vendors spec sheet and further details on the offering. We encourage transparency and allow free communication between buyers and suppliers during the auction and prior to the selection of the winning vendor by the buyer. 

Do we get and warranty on the product?

Every supplier offers standard warranty and option to extend it based on buyer’s preferences. This allows each buyer to customize the warranty preference and achieve the best package. 

Do you have stock?

Proficircle does not hold stock of any type of materials or storage solutions. Our platform can support and establish a relationship between the vendor and the buyer and allow the buyer to build stock for free with the chosen supplier. 

How fast can I get the first price?

Can I skip the design/layout stage?

We strongly encourage you to not skip this stage. It is of big importance for each buyer to clarify all small details and avoid mistakes upon order placement. In certain projects we can proceed without having the technical layout, but it is in buyer’s hands in case of miscalculation or misplacement of material.
