Frequently Asked Questions

Ford Market Services Inc. is open to answering any questions you may have. You may view some of the more common ones on this page.

What Would Be the Benefit of Getting This Survey?

We feel that as a wholesaler your main purpose for being in the market is because of the retailer. Why not get their opinion about what they felt led them to choose your company over another wholesaler.

What Makes Our Company Unique?

We hire retailers who have been in their specialized markets for more than 25 years. Their vast knowledge of price point, impulse buying, and the latest trends gives them the upper hand in surveying what you have to offer to them before they offer it to their customers. No retailer ever wants to gamble on cash flow when they are looking into ordering inventory for their stores.

Has Any Company Challenged Our Surveys?

Since 2007, only five out of several thousand have contacted us about something on their survey that needed further explanation and we were more than happy to contact them and clarify what they needed to have explained.


Remember, our motto states: “You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.” Knowing how the retailer thinks is the key to your success, not ours!

Will I Be Surveyed Again?
