San Francisco hosted the 2010 Pacific Coast Builders Conference, where BidForMaterials.com proved to be a leading resource for contractors and suppliers across the country
The great city of San Francisco was a pleasure to visit and exhibit in. The 2010 Pacific Coast Builders Conference, PCBC, for construction was a true success. http://www.BidForMaterials.com and its booth, the fellow exhibitors and the attendees exceeded our expectations. Although the show was smaller than previous years, there was a general sentiment that the attendees were real down and dirty contractors. Those who attended were there for the purpose of learning new sources and products needed to improve their business.
It was predicted that green alternative was of great interest and BidForMaterials.com played a large role in that. The booth, while attracting contractors looking for ways to save on roofing, drywall and HVAC supplies, to name a few, it also attracted those looking for ways to learn about using green alternatives. BidForMaterials.com gives contractors the ability to upload their material needs and to receive not only the price of generic material but of green alternative material as well. For instance, if a plumber is looking for a price quote of a traditional, domestic 80-gallon hot water heater, he could input that exact request. By highlighting the request for green alternatives, he would get back the price for a traditional hot water heater as well as also any literature, rebates and the cost for its green alternative.
BidForMaterials.com has become a source for education on green products, which is not limited to manufacturers, but includes installation instructions, cost ratios and any available rebates. At the end of the day, if BidForMaterials.com continues to encourage contractors to ask for green alternatives, then the education will begin to trickle down into our homes moving us towards a more environmentally friendly planet.
For those who may be new to BidForMaterials.com, it is a business-to-business network providing a tool for contractors to obtain real-time quotes on building material without the hassle of purchasing through a third party. A company simply uploads its exact material needs onto the website, choose a region in which it is looking, an expiration date and any additional comments. From there, BidForMaterials.com will notify suppliers eager to sell you the requested materials to help fulfill your quote. Once a supplier shows interest in your posting, an email will be sent to you informing you of pending bids. There is no commitment being made to those materials, you are simply being matched to suppliers who may provide you with the necessary materials. It is entirely up to you if you want to use any. The process is simple and http://www.BidForMaterials.com has done its job.
