Benefits of opening a trade account
Dedicated Trade Account Manager
When you sign up for a trade account with us, you will instantly be assigned your own Trade Account Manager. We can take care of everything, from sourcing the right building materials to making sure they are delivered to the right place and at the right time.
Knowledgeable and friendly advice
Manage your project with the help of our dedicated and knowledgeable team with decades of experience in the building industry. We are always happy to chat about what you are up to, so call or email and let us know how we can help.
Instant access to over 45,000 products
We are confident you will find what you need through our website. But if there is something that you cannot find in our online store, your Trade Account Manager will reach out to our network of suppliers to get that product at a competitive trade price.
Flexible trade credit
Our credit trade accounts allow you to buy materials and tools without the hassle of paying cash and dealing with admin work. Get an interest-free credit line in as little as 24 hours. Your Trade Account Manager will work with you on setting it up.
