In every instance you think of a wild animal skin, you need to think of the beauty they posses. Not far away from your mind, you need to also think of poaching; not on how to do it but rather on how negative it is. Having set your mind this way, you are more likely to identify and single out a good vendor from whom you can get a good African lion skin. Here are some of the things that you need to put in mind when looking out for a skin vendor;
Is the vendor licensed to deal in African lion skins?
There are instances that governments allow a lion to be killed. These instances are rare and it follows that finding a lion skin is rare and so is locating a vendor who sells them. The vendors licensed to sell such skins have special licenses so as to prevent the reckless and illegal killing of these big cats. In order to protect yourself from buying a skin from an unlicensed vendor, you should insist on first seeing their license which allows them to sell such.
Are they customer friendly?
In every business, the seller must give the customer what they demand. In today’s world, it is rather simple to know whether a vendor satisfies the needs of customers. All you need to do is visit the vendor’s website and observing how customers are treated. You can ask a question or send a query and just note the tone which they reply your phone calls/ emails with and how fast they respond to you. For a more independent way of verifying whether a vendor is good and customer friendly, read websites on customer reviews on African lion sellers. This way, you are more likely to make an informed decision on which vendor to approach and those to avoid. Good vendors will offer you money back on all the skins they offer to sell you.
The expertise they have in African lion skins Selling a product is one thing and having knowledge of what you are selling is a completely different thing. By visiting a vendor’s blog or website, you can tell whether they are a point of authority as far as lion skins are concerned or not. The more knowledgeable a vendor is, the better their services are likely to be. In any case, if a vendor doesn’t have in depth knowledge about skins, they are also likely to have been swindled into dealing in poached ones. They could also be poachers themselves. An informed vendor will answer all of your questions satisfactorily.
Is the lion skin legally acquired?
A licensed vendor is easy to deal with because they are selling you products that they have been licensed to sell. However, as an informed buyer of an African lion skin, you need to go a step further and ask whether the particular skin you are buying is legally acquired. Ask for all the documentation regarding the acquisition of the skin. After all, every lion killed legally has to have some serious documentation from the relevant authorities. If a vendor can’t prove this, move on to the nest vendor.
