Business Finance for Builders Merchants

We focus on arranging finance for your business
So you can focus on running your builders merchants

Every business needs finance. A builders’ merchant is no exception. Whether starting out, expanding your business or taking on a whole new challenge, ASC are here to make getting that finance simple for you.

A builders’ merchant is the backbone of an entire industry. Without businesses dedicated to sourcing and providing the supplied that builders need to do their job, the construction industry would grind to a screeching halt. Running one comes with a huge amount of importance and prestige – you have builders all over your area relying on you. However, that also means you have a unique set of challenges to contend with. We’re here to make sure that finance isn’t one of those challenges.

Foundations are as important to finance as they are to buildings.

When you look for finance, you have to be prepared for unexpected questions. Builders’ merchants will all supply the same general products, but that doesn’t meant that they’re all the same business. Differences in operation styles, sourcing structures, business priorities and many others combine to make each business a truly unique proposition. Lenders know this, and they will want to find out as much about your business as they possibly can. Where do you source your product? What do you sell the most of? How large are your clients? What is your storage structure? What is your average order price? Lenders will want to know the answers to this and more before they put money on the line.

You’ll also have to consider what finance might work best for your business. Businesses aren’t homogeneous, and neither is finance. Depending on your businesses’ environment and situation, the right finance for your business could be drastically different. A business that serves several major building works and commercial projects, for example, might be well-suited to having a standard commercial mortgage. On the other hand, a merchant that supplies a lot of smaller builders who tend to work on residential properties might be more suited to a more granular, small-scale financial approach. So, when you look for finance, you have to be sure that your broker really understands your business, as well as the world it operates in.
