As online e-commerce increases in popularity, we now have a world of manufacturers to browse through. We can compare pricing and value and match our purchases to our budgets. There is nothing wrong with trying to invest your dollars wisely. However, when it comes to investing in a product that reflects your team, don’t try to buy cheap volleyball scoreboards. You will just be setting yourself and your team up for a fall. Looking into discount volleyball scoreboards is not something that you want to be cheap with.
At first glance:
The price of cheap volleyball scoreboards might light up your eyes. But, be cautioned. You typically will not find that they are made of quality construction nor are they made to last. Inferior materials as well as base coat paints will have the discount volleyball scoreboards looking like its twenty years old after just a short time.
Installation and maintenance:
After buying some of the discount volleyball scoreboards you might find yourself spending days and weeks trying to figure out how to install the darned thing. You will then realize, it wasn’t the bargain you thought it would be. Your time is valuable and now you are sitting on hold while you wait to get through to a customer support department. After you finally got it installed, you must carefully examine it. It is usually poorly made so you had better set some money aside for future maintenance.
Warranties and repairs:
The cheap volleyball scoreboards may not offer very much in the way of a warranty. When it’s time for a repair, they also may have farmed it out to third party vendors. These vendors are usually not that knowledgeable and they already know that the product was not made from sturdy framing.
Colors and Choices:
Companies that make the discount volleyball scoreboards will usually have a limited selection of colors. You must choose from them, even if they don’t match anyone’s team colors. There is a standard (and small) size selection. And don’t look for any customization. That’s limited as well. You won’t realize how important this is until the sponsors start asking what they can have on your scoreboard. If they can’t have much, they are not going to be inclined to be a sponsor.
The cheap volleyball scoreboards are not usually designed for angled visibility. This is critical if you want your fans to be able to see the scores. If you are looking into an outdoor scoreboard, the discount companies may limit their warranties because it’s not designed to hold up well in bad weather. In a year or two, not only will all the fans not be able to view the scoreboard, but, even if they could see it, it looks pretty shabby.
If you are considering discount volleyball scoreboards, see if they offer wireless ability. If it is offered, be sure to examine the remote and base controllers. They are typically of lower quality and are not designed to hold up to the rambunctious environment of repetitive games.
If you are investing in a volleyball scoreboard, do justice to the team members, fans and sponsors and purchase a scoreboard that will last, look good and be a scoreboard that the sponsors are proud to have their name on. Don’t go the route of cheap volleyball scoreboards. Invest wisely, instead.
