    Default British Gypsum powders


    As in Easi-fill and Quicksand/Joint Cement, had a chat today with one of their sales bodies and as long as I order a minimum of 14 tonnes they will sell it to me!
    Right, so who wants a tonne or 2?

    Your messages are really important to us
    ...but not important enough to employ a sufficient number of support staff to answer them.

    Logisticaly it could be a good money saver, a few quick fag pack calculations gives the following...

    14ton of quicksand =560 bags split that between 10 of us is 56bags each which i'm sure will be used within 3 months?! (i get through approx 30-40bags a month)

    14ton of easifill =1400 bags split between 10 is 140bags each, which again i'm sure will be used within 3 months?! (i get through approx 40-50bags a month)

    Of course the 10 people would have a split load of quicksand and easifill which when you think about it isnt a huge amount and would most likely last them 4-6 weeks perhaps?

    Infact I will speak to BG again and get some prices from them to see if it is a viable idea, as most places like B&Q sell easifill for a little over 10 a bag I would assume they buy it in for around half that?, the other side to be thought about is dry storage and ways for people to collect or arrange collection/delivery.

    If I got prices etc, would enough of you be interested?

    Why would you bother Steve? Are the rates you are working for, that bad?
