Technical Information Service
We pride ourselves in knowing our products as well as we know our customers whether trade or self-build. In store you will find a wealth of knowledge, both in our employees but also in the vast library of technical information we have available.
With our dedicated estimating department your quote requirements are professionally handled from the moment they are submitted.
For building projects, trade or self-build, we can supply a comprehensive bill of quantities and a quote for your materials – and help you to project manage your build – factoring in labour, delivery schedules etc.
Truss Design Service – on site survey
With a product such as trusses we recognise the importance of specifying the right order details and accurate measurements. In order to ensure that the right product is specified we send out truss engineers to your site to do an on-site take off whilst at the same time planning delivery and offload of the trusses to ensure that the order and delivery process is seamless.
Call us on 01543 440000 and ask for the Truss design team.
Delivery service for all construction supplies
With over 35 vehicles in our fleet ranging from moffett vehicles, curtainsiders, box vans, crane lorries and small panic wagons there are very few deliveries we can’t undertake. The flexibility that our diverse vehicle range provides helps enable us to get your delivery where you need it when you need it. Our standard delivery area is Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Warwickshire, Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire, Shropshire and across the West Midlands.
It's not just materials and supplies we deliver either! See what we delivered to Lichfield Cathedral for Christmas 2012!
