Build Backer genuinely saves me time and money. I always used the same two builders merchants and making sure I was getting their best price was always a hassle. Build Backer takes away the hassle of getting quotes and gets me better prices than I ever get myself.

Just about everything and anything related to house building; from building materials to plant hire and everything in between. Whatever you need, let us know and we’ll get you competitive quotes for you to compare.
It takes up to 24 hours but depends on how complex your request is; simple requests may be almost immediate, complex quotes may take the entire 24 hours. Every supplier in our network agrees that quotes and estimates requested by Build Backer users will be treated as a priority and responded to within 24 hours. We’ll send quotes directly to you as soon as we receive them and then send you a summary of all your quotes after 24 hours.
Your quote requests are sent to our network anonymously. Suppliers send their quotes to us and we forward them on to you. Only when you’ve received a quote you’re happy with and placed an order will the supplier receive your details so they can contact you directly to arrange payment and delivery.
Of course! Each quote you receive shows the total price as well as a break down of per-item cost. This means you can compare quotes on a per-item basis, splitting your order between multiple quotes so you pay the absolute minimum.
Nothing, it’s free! We don’t charge you to request quotes or to place orders through us. The quotes you receive are the exact quotes our suppliers send so we never mark-up their prices. We’re here to save you as much money and time as possible.
You order from us once you’ve received a quote you’re happy with. We then contact the supplier you’ve chosen to let them know you’ve ordered based on their quote. We then pass on your details and they’ll contact you directly to arrange payment and delivery. It’s quick and easy!
You pay the supplier directly once they’ve contacted you to confirm your order. How you pay, whether it’s cash or on trade credit, is arranged between yourself and the supplier.
The supplier you’ve placed your order with will deliver your materials. Once you’ve placed your order through us, and we’ve sent this to the supplier, your contact with them in terms of payment and delivery will be just as if you’d approached them directly for a quote. Then, when you next need a quote, come back to us and see who gives you the best price.
