BuildClub offers immediate delivery of materials to your job site
By Jenny LescohierJanuary 17, 2023
The BuildClub promotes itself as a one-stop shop for ordering all types of building materials for same-day delivery to the job site.
Aimed at small and mid-sized contractors looking to outsource their material sourcing department, the service can help users save time and money through its catalog of products, and web tools designed to simplify the procurement process.
A Silicon Valley startup founded to solve the problem of construction material sourcing and delivery, BuildClub targets small contractors who are spending too much unbilled time driving a truck and fetching materials instead of making money with more projects.
Mid-size construction companies are using full-time teams and drivers for this task, adding overhead and fixed costs, while large construction companies are burning time and adding complexity when dealing with numerous specialty contractors and their sourcing and delivery companies.
“We track 17,000,000 building products per day in 15 cities, monitoring pricing and inventory levels,” the company claims. “Our algorithms can find the best sourcing techniques for our purchasing team, while finding opportunities to move materials between markets.”
The BuildClub offers a tech-based sourcing solution for the materials contractors need, at competitive prices and delivered to the job site with just-in-time delivery.
According to the company, BuildClub is the “Amazon for building materials,” but with same-day delivery. It says 650,000 products are available for immediate delivery.
“We are like an out-sourced, sourcing department, always faster, easier and less expensive than the big box stores,” the company says. “We have ordering tools that put owners and managers in control, so their staff can order only approved items, and manage their own supply, while the BuildClub manages all logistics to the job site, saving contractors and owners time and money.”
