Builders Bay has come up with a unique way to save landlords and renovators money while helping the environment with its online marketplace, Buildersbay.co.uk. Landlords can use the site to buy quality products at reduced prices for their housing projects while doing their bit for the environment at the same time.
Buildersbay.co.uk was born out of the desire to solve the problem of dangerously excessive construction waste by enabling nationwide suppliers to sell surplus products to builders, renovators and DIY enthusiasts. The UK is a nation of DIY enthusiasts who spend £1.5bn annually on building products, yet 13% is never used and enters the country’s waste system. The e-commerce site also solves the problem in the DIY retail market of unsold and surplus end of line stock either clogging up prime retail space or having to be stored, all costing the retailer money.
Buildersbay.co.uk is the perfect solution for environmentally conscious landlords looking to lower costs and maximise profits in this booming market. Products bought on buildersbay.co.uk cost a fraction of the usual price. For example, some brand new appliances are up to 45% cheaper than anywhere else on the internet. There are thousands of other products available from doors and hobs to washing machines and windows.
Builders Bay Co-Founder, Michael Chapman, says: “There are hundreds of millions of surplus materials and products on sites, in stores and from supply chains which literally just go into landfill and it’s been an ongoing problem for these businesses. One business is actually building its own incinerator to get rid of surplus materials!
“Builders Bay is the perfect solution for the supply chain that also benefits landlords looking to keep their costs down. It is the first service of its kind and we recommend it as the go-to marketplace in 2019.”
Builders Bay won the UK’s largest ever seed funding search competition, The Start-Up Series, to qualify for £150,000 funding to get its idea off the ground. The company is celebrating its 2nd anniversary with an additional 12,000 products added to its site offering customers savings of £8m.
