Cable reels are cylindrical fixtures on which cables and wires are wound for easy transportation and unwinding, and to prevent the entangling of cables and wires. Pick a good cable reel manufacturer if you want a good reel. So, how do you go about this?

Consider the quality of the reels made. You could do this by visiting the manufacturing plant and scrutinizing the reels, through recommendations from people you know who might be using reels from the manufacturer, through customer testimonials and through discussion forums. Consider the number of years the manufacturing plant has been in existence. A manufacturer who has been in the industry for several years must be doing something right. Consider the training of the manufacturing team. The team should have studied in accredited institutions. The manufacturing plant should be a member of the relevant professional body since these bodies have strict codes of ethics that members have to abide by.

Consider the credibility and the reliability of the manufacturer. You could do this by reading independent reviews in magazines and review websites, by joining relevant discussion forums, by checking with such consumer protection agencies as the Better Business Bureau and by checking the relevant professional bodies and regulators.

Cost considerations should be secondary to the other considerations if you want to get a good cable reel. As the old adage goes, cheap is expensive. You could increase your chances of getting a good deal by buying in bulk. Do not shy away from haggling over the price. Another important consideration when searching for the perfect manufacturer is if there are such value added services like re-spooling, disposal, wire cutting and reel retrieval programs. Other important considerations are customer service, if the manufacturing processes are ‘green’, shipping charges, and turnaround time.

Go online if you want to find the best manufacturer of cable reels. The Internet enables you to compare different options from around the world, meaning you are more likely to find a good manufacturer and the right reel for your particular needs. Going online is also advantageous in that you do not have to move from one manufacturer to the next and you therefore save money. This is also the best option if you want to preserve your anonymity.

Consider what others are saying about cable reels from the manufacturer. Independent reviews, comments sections in websites and customer testimonials will come in handy. Buy the first cable reel, scrutinize and use it rigorously for some time, and then buy in bulk. This will ensure you only buy reels that have been tried and tested. Go for a manufacturer who offers in-house transportation and one who offers free consultancy on such issues as the best cable reel for your particular needs.
