Greenhouses .com Company info
There are lots of websites offering greenhouse kits for sale these days! All of them pretty much have the same photos & the same descriptions.
So why should you trust us with your purchase?
- Well for one thing we are the Internet's largest greenhouse kit dealer.
This is a full time business for us - not a hobby or a sideline.
- We have an online help desk, 24 hour toll-free order taking and full time customer service staff to make placing your order, tracking your shipment and putting together your greenhouse kit as quick & easy as possible.
- We work closely with manufacturers ensuring that we have the knowledge and experience that our customers count on.
- We constantly browse the internet to make sure that we have the best prices anywhere! We publish our low prices and honor them everyday, no games, no hidden charges, and no empty promises.
And even though over the years our internet business has become one of the largest in America - we still that brick and mortar store it all started in.
Unlike almost every other greenhouse kit dealer we are one of very few online greenhouse kit companies that have actually owned these greenhouses.
We have built the kits, worked with the factories toward developing easier to follow instructions (an ongoing process), demonstrated greenhouse kits at home and garden shows, been a regular guest co-host on a local gardening show and repeatedly appeared on regional gardening shows.
We will never claim to have all the answers but you can bet that we understand your frustration if you are having trouble with parts or instructions since we have experienced those very same issues first hand. And we have the staff and the desire to find the answers for you when needed.
How did we come to be a greenhouse kit dealer?
Back in 1996 our local pond store had grown from our backyard into one of the largest pond supply dealers in the Northwest and we were looking to build or buy a greenhouse kit to display our pond plants during the winter season (something we still do today).
Since it was still very early in the days of the internet it was a little harder to find greenhouse kits to choose from and just like today it was hard to find an honest dealer who would be straight forward without any fancy sales talk what the best kit for our needs would be.
We quickly became pretty darn discouraged with the process and thought that if someone would provide all the best greenhouses in one place then it could be easy to figure out which would be the best greenhouse for us.
It didn't take long before we realized that if no one else would provide that kind of service then we would.
How did we come to do business on the Internet?
Back in 1995 the pond and garden business was only seasonal so we had a lot of time on our hands. I decided not to let this time go to waste. I started putting my dormant computer skills from college to work building websites and putting our company onto this newfangled internet.
Almost immediately our online business started to outgrow our local store.
We sold off a division of our company to concentrate on our garden center and on building online stores to distribute our products via the internet across the United States.
Now writing this years later it is hard to believe where we started and how far we have come. From one old junky computer to state of the art systems and dedicated servers. From 28k modems to screaming T1 broadband for the online help desks and customer service representatives.
