My brother who is a plumber makes a fortune out of supply. NickamJan 29, Seriously though, it all comes down to how big the supply company is economy of scale. How good their buyers are at getting the howdebs down from their suppliers.
And last, but not least, the quality of their product. You have to haggle at Howdens. Go to Magnet then! Any customer with an ounce of bargaining ability can walk into any trade only place and walk out with the same deal as an account holder.
I regularly buy boilers on the web at prices my plumber can’t get – i fit maybe 10 a year, he fits Lb, no offence chum, but you are joking right???
Have to agree with LB. They sent them on a 7. Believe me, phoning the HDS was pathetic. Don’t most kitchen fitters use companies like east coast fixings for kitchens.

Which really are trade and won’t even sell to you unless you have an account. You should be to beat b and q on price and howdnes. Howdens are fine if you are a housing association or maintenance company which get good prices and products over the counter.
DubsJan 31, Trade prices are not a thing of the past.
I can buy boilers cheaer than any web price. Boilers are priced fixed and anyone caught advertising below hoadens manufacturers guide price won’t be selling boilers. The merchant will have a discount policy for it’s individual customers and these will be a lot lower than any retail outlet. It is illegal, under the competition regulations, for a manufacturer to force a specific reselling price. This applies to retail AND distribution. For hoqdens reason I cant cut and paste on this forum.

Google “price fixing”, and click on business link. Yes price fixing is illegal but everyone does it. I know of countless companies that have had distribution rights removed for advertising below set prices.
I’ve worked in sales as well as on the tools and nearly all companies control pricing. DubsFeb 1, Price fixing may well be illegal, but just try shopping around for a Festool Ts55 plunge saw.
