Oriental Rug Liquidators (ORL) is an Store featuring overstock and liquidation merchandise from multiple Importers and Retailers. Our goal is to negotiate and offer the lowest prices for customers while accurately and honestly describing the inventory listed in our store. Oriental Rug Liquidators operates in the most ethical manner possible following standards and guidelines established for online Oriental Rug sellers by the leader in independent, online Oriental Rug evaluations, RugRag.com.
While reputation and feedback of the seller may be one measure of trust, unfortunately, it is not always the best. Oriental Rugs are a "blind item", meaning they are unbranded, typically unique and not necessarily made to specific standards. Online purchases of such items are often based on inadequate information, misrepresentations and/or poor photographs. This translates to a misunderstood 'bargain' and, often no bargain at all!
Unreputable sellers may use a variety of dishonest tactics including "grey areas" of description that result in product misrepresentation. These include "retail price" inflation, age exaggeration, incorrect knot count, misleading attribution of design and/or origin and "cover up" repairs. Such misrepresentations may seriously affect both perceived and real value.
We believe third party review of our store items is in the best interest of the public, the online market, and the Oriental rug industry as a whole. As of March 25, 2009, Oriental Rug Liquidators will begin to display items with Oriental rug photograph criteria and descriptive standards established by RugRag.com for the purpose of properly identifying the rugs represented in this store. It is our pleasure to work with Rug Rag as a Verified Rug Seller with unique, independent evaluations to certify authenticity of any inventory added to our store.
