Savings, discounts and special offers

When you join Trade Card you become a part of one of the UK's largest and most powerful building material buying groups - this enables BuildStore to negotiate better prices and services with our partners, tailored to the needs of self builders and renovators.

With Trade Card you can save thousands of pounds on materials during your project. Your  Trade Card Welcome Pack will give you more detailed information about how you can save with each individual partner plus tips on planning your project purchasing stage by stage.

Increased spending power

Many of our partners, including Wolseley,  automatically allocate you a higher credit limit with Trade Card than you would otherwise get if you approached a merchant directly – up to £25,000 across our merchant partners.  Higher credit limits mean being able to purchase the materials you need when you need them, allowing your project to run more smoothly.
