Part 2: The Benefits of Placing a Wholesale High Quality LED Tube Lights Order at ShineLong
Here, you want to know:
What are the perks of wholesale/bulk purchases? If so, is it ideal for you and your project?
The most obvious benefit is always cost.
When you place a bulk order, it helps you to cut down your total expenses and increase your profits. How?
It’s simple – when we sell large quantities of light fixtures, it allows us to offer them at relatively lower prices.
In a nutshell:
Buying goods wholesale is much cheaper than buying them from a retailer.
Here are a few ways you stand to benefit from making a bulk order…
a) Reduced Cost
Cost is one of the most important aspects of a purchase; obviously, you should always look for cost-effective deals.
And that’s only possible if you buy in bulk.
Wholesale purchases benefit all parties involved in several ways. In short, this is what happens…
- Bulk orders allow us (the manufacturer) to procure the required raw materials at lower prices.
- That, in turn, scales down our manufacturing costs.
- And when that happens, we’d be in a good position to offer you discounts and low prices on your order.
- Not to mention the fact that shipping in large quantities is always cheaper(per unit) than handling a small consignment.
As I said, everyone benefits.
And the best part is that you get to lower your project completion costs; or gain a competitive advantage over your business rivals if you plan to resell these lights.
b) No Order Quantity Caps/Limitations
When buying in bulk from a manufacturer like ShineLong, there is no limit on the number of products you can order.
Also, you won’t have to endure the inconveniences that come with waiting for a retail or wholesale store to restock.
Whether you want a thousand, 10000, 100000, or even a million units, we’ll make sure you get timely deliveries of your order; without any compromises on the quality of the LED fixtures.
c) Customization Becomes Feasible and Cost-Effective
For someone who wants customized LED tube lights, it becomes more cost-effective if it is a wholesale purchase.
Well, the resources, time, and manpower needed for customization can be costly if the order is small or one-time.
d) It Is More Convenient
Well, aside from being cheaper, bulk purchases ensure you get enough of what you are buying.
Assuming you are shopping for 10,000 LED tubes; you can either:
- Buy varying amounts from different vendors until you get to 10,000 fixtures.
- Or you can buy all of them from the manufacturer.
The first option might seem expedient, however, it exposes you to costly, unreliable, time-consuming, and stressful purchases.
On the other hand, option two might seem far-fetched, especially if you have to import the fixtures. But it guarantees you a better deal, smoother deliveries, some insurance & warranty, timeliness, consistency, and fewer processes. Hence, you’ll enjoy a stress-free and quick purchase.

Part 4: Why LED Tube Lighting?
What makes LED tube lights worth buying? Or why should you opt for these fixtures?
There are a ton of reasons why these fixtures are the best; however, the main one is to replace your old, inefficient, and costly fluorescent tubes.
Our tube lights are designed to be eco-friendly, efficient, and convenient alternatives to fluorescent tubes.
Here are three good reasons to consider:
a) LED Tubes Are Convenient
If you hate it when your fluorescents delay and flicker before lighting up, then an LED tube is your best solution to that problem.
Well, for starters, LEDs often light up instantly. That means no more delays and incessant flickering.
These LEDs are designed to fit into fluorescent tube holders; this means that you won’t have to worry about rewiring or fitting new holders.
b) LED Tubes Are Cost-Effective
Our fixtures save you money in three ways…
- They are low maintenance and very durable. Therefore, you won’t spend much on maintenance or replacements.
- They don’t require new wiring or fixtures. All you have to do is buy and fix them into your current fluorescent light holders.
- Lastly, our LEDs use very little energy. Yes. You’ll also enjoy the fact that LEDs are very energy-efficient; they need just a fraction of what other light technologies use to provide ample lighting.
c) LED Tube Lights Offer Better Lighting & Features
You should opt for our tube lights because they come with numerous, useful features.
With our LEDs, you can easily configure your lighting system to dim whenever you want; or even change colors.
And the fact that you’ll enjoy brighter, evenly distributed, glare-free, and flicker-free lighting is a much-appreciated bonus.
Why are LEDs the best solution for your project?

Part 5: Full LED Tube Solutions for Your Project
If you’re wondering; how do our LED tube lights offer solutions for your project?
Well, these lighting systems are designed to help you face most of the issues you face with traditional lighting systems.
1. Low Maintenance
LED tube lights are very easy to maintain, unlike other lighting fixtures.
And the best part is that these lights last for a long period; therefore, you won’t have to worry about the expenses and inconveniences that come with fixture repairs and replacements.
2. Low Electricity Usage
ShineLong’s LED tube lights use up to 80% less power than most traditional fixtures.
Normally, these lights are used in areas that need constant lighting. This means they are ON for long periods.
However, regardless of how long LED tube fixtures stay ON, you won’t have to worry about racking up your power bill.
3. Eco-Friendly Lighting
For those concerned about our planet’s health and mitigating climate change, switching to LED lights should be on your priority list.
Something fascinating about LED tube lights is that they don’t contain any harmful components like mercury and phosphorous.
Note that LED lights do not alter environmental temperatures because they don’t heat up when lit. They produce little to no heat and are thus perfect for spaces like indoor gardens.
4. Unrivaled Durability
With our LED Tube Lights, you can get up to 100,000 hours of high-quality lighting. That’s 100 times longer than incandescent bulbs and about 10 times more than fluorescents.
And the best part about LED light lifespans is that they are not affected by ON/OFF switching.
Therefore, you get more value for your money with our advanced tube lights.
5. Efficiency and Performance
LED tube lights by ShineLong are designed to be very energy-efficient. This means that they use less energy to produce better and brighter illumination.
This not only lowers operational costs but also allows you to get the most out of the new lighting system.
In terms of performance, LEDs fair impressively.
When a traditional bulb is new, its performance is always 100%. However, the more it is used, the less light it produces. Sometimes, up to 50% less.
An LED tube light maintains 100% performance; from day 1 until the end of its service life.
Well, you should be.
Part 6: How to Find the Best Wholesale LED Tube Lights Factory?
With hundreds of LED manufacturers in existence today, it can be quite a hassle finding a good, reputable one.
That’s why you need to learn a few tips and tricks; to help you choose the best manufacturer.
Here’s what you need to do:
a) Do Your Research
When searching for an LED company, the first thing to do is to do some digging online.
Here, you want to gather as much information as you possibly can about the top suppliers of LED Tube Lights.
For example, look for things like:
- The top five or ten best LED tube light manufacturers.
- What customers have to say about each.
- The kind of service you should expect to get.
- Where your products will be manufactured from and how the shipment will get to you.
- The different types of tube lights available and which ones come close to what you want.
- The kind of after-sale services to expect.
- Any procedures, fees, or requirements that you must fulfill for a successful importation.
- How long each company takes to handle orders similar to yours and so on.
The more information you have, the easier this whole process will be for you.
b) Read through User Reviews and Ratings
Once you have a company in mind, the next step is usually to learn more about them from their current clients.
The best way to do so is by reading through their reviews and ratings on different information platforms.
This helps you to get a glimpse on:
- How satisfied their clients are.
- The time it takes for the company to respond to a complaint.
- How the company communicates with its clients; are they friendly or arrogant?
- Are there any extras/bonuses/offers other clients have received after placing an order similar to yours?
Doing this will give you a rough idea of what to expect from the company in question.
With ShineLong at your service, these are things you won’t have to worry about. We are friendly, love to listen, prompt when it comes to handling complaints, always on time, and very customer-centric. Your happiness is our joy.
c) Communicate With or Visit the Company
The last thing you want to do is talk to the manufacturer or supplier.
For any business relationship or deal to succeed, there must be proper communication between all parties involved.
And to get a first-hand feel of who you are getting into business with, you have to communicate.
Call the manufacturer, ask many questions, listen to what they have to say, and then decide whether they’re right for you.
It’s that simple!
And it gets even better if you can visit their offices physically. That way you get to inspect their company, machinery, manufacturing process, materials, and more.
Part 7: LED vs. Incandescent Tube Lighting: Which One Is Better and Why?
It is a fact:
Incandescent lights used to be popular. And even though there are still people who use these fixtures, many have upgraded their lighting systems to LEDs.
Because LED lights are better than incandescent bulbs in almost all aspects; including costs.
By now, you already know a lot about LED tube lights and their benefits. Therefore, to help you learn how they differ from incandescent tubes, I’ll list a few downsides to using the latter.
1. Incandescent Bulbs are Highly Inefficient
Unlike LEDs, incandescent lights use a lot of energy to produce light. But a large percentage of it is wasted in the form of heat.
And that’s why, compared to LEDs, these fixtures will use up more power but still end up yielding low-quality light.
2. Limited Features
LEDs accommodate a wide array of features; including color manipulation and dimming.
However, these are functions you won’t find in incandescent bulbs. In fact, dimming these bulbs affects their lifespan and performance greatly.
3. Costly Maintenance
You already know that LEDs are low-maintenance and can last for years without needing a replacement, right?
Well, when it comes to incandescent bulbs, this changes completely. How? For starters, these lights have very short lifespans (up to 1000 hours); meaning, you may have to replace them once every 2 months.
The fact that they consume a lot of power equates to higher energy bills, hence, higher operational costs.
4. Contain Toxins
Incandescent bulbs contain toxic substances like mercury. And that means they may pose health risks when broken.
Plus, since they can’t be disposed of easily, it makes them harmful to the environment; i.e. not eco-friendly.
5. Can be Easily Damaged
If you’ve handled incandescent lights before, you know how fragile they can be. In fact, since they are made of thin glass, a simple, short drop is enough to completely damage the fixture.
With our LED tubes, that won’t be an issue because we use high-quality, strong plastic polymers; to give you the same (even better) service you’d get from an incandescent fixture minus the high risk of damage.
If you are wondering; what about fluorescent tubes? Read on to find out.
Part 8: What Are the Differences between LED Tubes and Fluorescent Tube Lights?
This is a very common question.
It’s probably because LED and Fluorescent tube lights are almost similar in appearance. In fact, these LEDs are designed to fit into fluorescent tube holders perfectly.
Physical similarity does not imply that these two technologies are equal because LEDs are better in many ways.
The main differences between LED tubes and Fluorescent tube lights are just the same as what I explained above on the incandescent section; i.e. fluorescents also:
- Get damaged easily (made of glass).
- Don’t support many features like LEDs.
- Contain hazardous substances (not good for the environment).
- Cost more to run, maintain, and replace.
- Are not energy-efficient.
The only upside to using fluorescents is that they are better than incandescent lights; the former becomes your best bet when the only other options you have are incandescent tubes.
Otherwise, if you have LEDs on your options list, it would be wise to use them to replace your fluorescent tubes.
Aside from the differences stated above, LED lights are also better because…
- They don’t flicker like fluorescents when turned ON.
- They don’t delay when lighting up; i.e. instant switching ON and OFF.
- Lastly, LEDs don’t make the annoying hum/noise that’s common with fluorescent tubes.
And that’s why I said, LED tube lights are designed to offer you a more convenient alternative to fluorescent lighting.
LED tube lights are some of the best fixtures you can ever use to illuminate your space, home, office, study rooms, exhibitions, and so on.
These lights are not only efficient but also very cost-effective and easy to install.
And the best part is that you don’t have to incur any additional costs in the form of rewiring and replacing light holders when upgrading.
The manufacturer you choose also determines the quality of the products and services you receive. Therefore, you have to choose wisely.
Working with ShineLong LED Company not only guarantees you the best-LED tube lights but also gives you a chance to work with one of the biggest players in the industry.
