6 Reasons Online Headshops are Superior

Brick and mortar headshops can provide their customer instant purchases, without waiting for shipment. However, an online headshop can a much more rewarding shopping experience. And that's why knowledgable, responsible smokers rely on online headshops to provide their smoking essentials. Ultimately, this will greatly improve your future smoking experiences.

Why Shop at an Online Head Shop?

At Toker Supply, we consider it a privilege to help others enjoy our favorite hobby. Choosing where to buy tools and supplies is an important choice for passionate smokers. Usually, that's because this is a long-term purchase. And that’s why selecting the right bong, pipe or dab rig the first time is essential. With the 2020 holiday season right around the corner, online headshops are the best place to shop for the smoker in your life!

#1 A Larger Selection

An online headshop's selection is significantly greater than their brick-and-mortar counterparts. Most local shops only offer pieces of one, exclusive style. For example, some only sell glass pipes, water pipes, or vaporizers. This lack of variety greatly restricts potential customers. In some cases, local shops may only offer one piece in different colors.

Premium online headshops offer all different styles of pieces, with size, color, and glass options. In addition, they provide tools, accessories and more for any and all smoking needs imaginable. We make a consistent effort to update our stock with new, high-quality products that complement our existing products. These cutting-edge products will provide a vastly superior smoking experience, and are not available at local shops.

#2 Lower Prices

Price should be a critical consideration for any customer. Like any retail store, brick-and-mortar headshops pay fees like rent, utilities, and more, not to mention wages. Online headshops, on the other hand, don't have the same overhead expenses that local shops do.

The lack of these costs allows online headshops to charge at much more reasonable rates. Also, with the reach that their internet presence grants, the customer base is much larger. Thus, the scale of an online headshop's sales is substantially larger than a local headshop.

Additionally, it’s difficult to compare the prices of glass pieces at local headshops. Online headshops allow customers to compare prices for similar products with other supplies, and determine the most fair price. If prices at local headshops are lower, then chances are the quality is lower, too.

#3 Discreet and Convenient

Smokers need to receive their products quickly and efficiently. At Toker Supply, we make fast and efficient shipping a top priority, with zero additional costs. To protect customer privacy, we ship all of our products in discreet packaging that doesn't reveal the nature of the products.

With our customer-focused policy, we can help smokers enjoy their favorite glass pipes without compromising enjoyment because of concerns about delivery speed. Online headshops also ensure that products are shipped in tight, secure packaging that's not vulnerable to damage.

#4 Knowledgeable Service

Many local headshops are afterthought endeavors for gas stations or convenience stores to earn additional money. As such, their staff aren't capable of answering your in-depth questions about their products that might inform your purchases. Online headshops are staffed by passionate smoking enthusiasts with an outstanding knowledge of their products.

At Toker Supply, our staff's always available to answer any questions pertaining to our products. Whether you're curious about ash catchers or the purpose of a carb on a hand pipe, we're always here to help.

#5 Quality Products

Online headshops are much more likely to stock durable products than local headshops. Local headshops tend to purchase their products from local suppliers. While it’s great to support local vendors, these pieces are generally made from lower-quality glass. Low-quality glass will break much more easily than the durable, scientific glass used to craft higher quality pieces.

Online headshops often have the resources to retain these higher-quality products, which can vastly improve your smoking experience. Purchasing from an online headshop is one of the best ways to keep your bongs safe.

#6 Detailed Product Information

Reading about potential alternatives is a natural part of the shopping process. At local headshops, this simply might not be possible.

Online headshops have detailed, often elaborate product descriptions that thoroughly inform you about your potential purchase. Depending on the style of the piece, this valuable information may include:

  • Material - Knowing which material your piece is made out of will help you  understand its durability. In some cases, pieces made out of particularly low-quality glass might detract from the smoking process.
  • Height - Knowing the dimensions of your piece before you buy it is essential for planning a storage space. This information is also helpful if you are considering travel.
  • Features - Understanding how this piece differs from other pieces may shape your decision. For example, learning about how the specific percolators in this bong function will help you understand whether or not it is the right choice for you.
  • Design Description - A poorly taken picture might prohibit you from seeing the pipe at various angles. A detailed description of the design will help you create a better image of the piece.
  • Attachment Sizes - Especially when you are purchasing a bong or dab rig, you should always look for the size of the joint and the bowl. Knowing whether or not they will be compatible with pieces that you already own may influence your decision.

Conclusion - Toker Supply

Local headshops lack the resources, expertise and product variety that give online headshops the leading edge. At Toker Supply, our online headshop constantly strives to improve our stock, inform our customers and guarantee a high-quality, long-term smoking experience.
