What details should I include in my product posting?

The more information you can supply, the better. Include details of quantities, brand names, manufacturers, colours, sizes etc. It maybe that the suppliers can also offer you alternatives with a similar specification to what you require.

Which category should I choose for my posting?

It is important you pick the category that best suits your requirement. If you are not sure which category to post your enquiry under, pick the category or categories that fit most closely to your requirements.

What about delivery details?

The section that asks you for delivery particulars is to help suppliers establish all the necessary information in order to provide an accurate quote. The way in which the materials are delivered can make a huge difference to the price. For example, many suppliers now use pallet couriers to keep costs to a minimum. Pallet couriers however require flat, solid hard-standing ground in which to make off-load with a tail-lift and pallet truck. The suppliers may also want to use a large crane wagon vehicle. These vehicles vary in size all the way up to articulated lorries.

Can I cancel my posting?

Yes, at any time you can delete your enquiry. You also have the ability to ‘turn off’ the enquiry once you feel as though you have had enough response or you have accepted a deal with a supplier.

What it nobody responds to my posting?

If no suppliers respond to your enquiry, it is likely that it isn’t viable for them to supply for whatever reason. We do encourage the use of this site for orders of a fair size. For example, an enquiry for 1 bulk bag of top soil may not generate the interest compared to 100m2 of paving or 10 tonnes of top soil.
