building material suppliers bricks etc help please

Found 29th Nov 2016
Hi if anyone works in this area or has experience please help me locate suppliers for best priced bricks as jewsons, build base are very pricey at 90p a brick or more

Requirements:
Bricks details: "London Brick Company Ironstone" - not 100% confirmed this to be exact colour yet however looks to be it (approx 11,000 required)
blue bricks and concrete breeze blocks will also be required so hopefully the bulk buy would help get a good discount.

Any help is appreciated.

where in the country are you ?

Jewson or Mkm or Build base, a Google search should give you prices too

Any big builders merchant should be able to give you a price. 11,000 bricks and you'll be looking at a direct load. LBC's should be in the region of £400-£600+vat per 1000

thanks that link is over £1.20 a brick - loads more than jewson

Try a couple of local independants, they should give a much more realistic price.

Most will be more than willing to beat a competitor's price.

Get an account with a merchant. It's easy, you don't need to be in the trade. Go in and talk to them. MKM are good because this year there has been a shortage of blocks, but they don't source from just one company. Also Travis Perkins have always given me great service.

you won't get a decent price at the cash desk, you need to get into the office, ideally with the manager.
They are the ones who can do the deals.
They do not want to be messed about, get the whole lot delivered in one go.
As somebody else said, the smaller dealers are the best.
Go dressed appropriately..........ie filthy overalls
Was at the point of giving up a few years back, wanted a sizeable amount of standard blocks and the last place I went to did a very good deal, delivered direct by the block manufacturer. Likewise with Redland roof tiles, came direct.
They just want to make a small profit at minimal effort..

these seem to be better priced brickexpress.com/lon…ves what about the brick layers u are going to use or the builders ask them they should be able get them.for a good price of a trade place or ring the manufacturer and see what they can do as that maybe enough for a full load on there truck.

Theres a company called In Touch With Bricks. Google em and see if they can come do a quote direct from their own brick yard.

Stamco can be really good if you have one local. Go into the yard and take a look.

Both these points are important, the second one probably the most.
