If you are new to using bulk bags, or a long-time buyer looking for a new supplier, you probably like to check prices from various vendors to get the best bang for your buck. Occasionally, two vendors will give you drastically different prices for what seems to be the exact same product, but sometimes it’s not. 

Quotes can be inaccurate because your manufacturer is over building your bag or not providing components that might be useful for you. That’s why it’s important to be prepared with the specifications you need or work with a knowledgeable sales representative who can help determine which components of a bag best fit your needs.

So, what specifications do you need to get an accurate quote from your supplier? The below chart has each bag component detailed and answering each part will get you the exact bag you need:
