BuildDirect Launches BDPros, a New Service for Home Improvement Professionals that Makes Projects as Seamless and Rewarding as Possible
BDPros offers industry professionals access to a personal concierge to help find their ideal products at the best price and ensure that goods arrive exactly where they’re needed – on time.
Vancouver, British Columbia — February 23, 2017– BuildDirect, the first open network for heavyweight products, today announced a new service for home improvement professionals– BDPros. When Pros sign up, they are connected with a personal sales concierge who assists them with product sourcing, special orders, partial and full returns, and more. This new service allows BDPros members to benefit from unlimited free product samples and affordable, reliable delivery via BuildDirect’s world-class anywhere-to-the-home heavyweight shipping network. BDPros members also earn a rebate on purchases throughout the year as they choose from one of the widest selections of home improvement products available.
“As a former builder, I know the pressure home improvement professionals are under to deliver superior quality for a great price on time, and so much of that process is completely beyond their control,” said BuildDirect co-founder, president, and CEO, Jeff Booth. “We want to shift that power, putting it back into the builder’s hands, so that they can truly delight homeowners.”
To get started with BDPros, professionals simply establish a customer profile that will enable them to track orders and manage projects. Through an online portal, they can shop a wide selection of products sourced from all over the world and have their concierge work directly with suppliers, enabling BDPros to benefit from lower prices. Because BuildDirect is not limited by shelf space, suppliers can add products at any time, which enables BuildDirect to showcase a vast array of styles, materials, and price points. BDPros can easily compare products, view side-by-side reviews, and receive free unlimited product samples overnight, to help manage customer product expectations.
Rebate & Cost Savings
Those enrolled in BDPros have the ability to earn an annual rebate on purchases (up to $2,500) and they receive the lowest-tiered pricing on all orders (the minimum order requirement is waived for BDPros). Additionally, BuildDirect’s 30-day money back guarantee applies to all BDPros orders, which provides for a full refund on shipping and, for BDPros only, free partial returns. That means, if there is excess product, BDPros can return remaining product free of charge.
BuildDirect has further eliminated shipping concerns by offering BDPros a variety of delivery options for heavyweight products to ensure products arrive when and where they are needed, hassle-free. Because of the difficulty in the current infrastructure associated with shipping goods over 150 pounds, BuildDirect developed its own supply chain, which currently ships more than 8.2 million pounds of BuildDirect products each month, traveling over 5.9 million miles. With BuildDirect’s delivery network, the company is able to deliver even the most complex orders for the lowest price directly to where it’s needed, never marking up shipping fees.
“Everything we do is with homeowners in mind– from servicing builders and contractors, to the experience we can enable them to deliver their clients,” said Booth. “We want to make home ownership and renovations joyful, exciting, and stress-free for everyone, and our BDPros service helps to make that possible.”
