2 weeks no reply

I have waited over two weeks for an invoice for an order I put in, over 3k, finally got a message back after 3 attempts at contacting them, stating the director has gone for at least 12 months and suspended trading! Now i need to start the ordering process eleswhere and my job is 3 weeks behind at least. Nothing on the website states this! Never again will I shop with buybuildingsupplies.

No guarantee of service

As there is no phone number there is no one to contact should you have problem. The replies to queries are very quick before a sale but once the money is paid you are on your own.

We were a promised a delivery at a certain but nobody showed up. We had workmen ready to go but no materials; no replies to our emails; no phone to ring. An extremely frustrating & costly situation nobody deserves to be in.

There are many other places with comparable prices. Be warned!

Fraud or breach of privacy

Received an invoice from this company when I haven't purchased anything for years. Contacted via the website and then received a further threatening email. They have no phone number to contact them to resolve things. So they have either invoices me fraudulently or my personal details have been compromised as they have been hacked. Do not use!

This review incorrectly reflects our company - the third party mail provider we use to send our newsletter emails - Mailchimp - were hacked and the hacker used our email address to send out 2 x spam / phishing emails. The emails did not come from us, and the hack was detected and shut down within 2 hours. We are trying to get Mailchimp to send out a letter of apology to all the recipients of the email (we can't do this ourselves as we do not know who it was sent to) but they are reluctant to do this as it reveals their system was hacked). This has caused us a great deal of concern, extra work and damage to our reputation of offering good service - something we value greatly and pride ourselves in being able to do. We sincerely apologise for this happening, but I can assure you that it was only email addresses they gained access to - nothing else.

Fantastic price for building & hardware supplies

Discovered this online store, bought subfloor vents for excellent price, so much cheaper than big hardware stores and excellent customer service. Would have delivered for free but I needed urgently so sent someone to pick up direct - highly recommend. All smooth as & I saved $200 on 21 vents

Great prices, excellent response times - wish I'd known you earlier!

Great prices, saved few hundred dollars; good product selection. I received a response to my enquiry in several hours and few hours later everything was ordered and paid for. Loved the option to pay by bank transfer (thus avoiding fees). The customer service is super responsive and very polite. Would recommend to everyone I know and don't know! The best bit: total cost lower than you'd expect!

Great product and excellent customer service

The team are there to help and persisted through my indecision. The product arrive on time and safe despite being a heavy concrete product.

The brick vents are excellent quality.

Money Talks!!!

Got a quote from a local supplier and Buy Building Supplies. BBS 32% cheaper and pick up product from local supplier. Checked with local supplier again because I thought they must have made a mistake, but no. So obviously went with BBS. Thanks Buy Building Supplies for the great prices. Wish I would have found you years ago.

Great service

Easy transaction, ended up cheaper than the online cost and delivered on the desired day. Will definitely use this service again.

Bondek order

The price and delivery of the Bondek was exceptional. Delivered to site and well within the time estimate given. Price beat all local suppliers by a considerable amount.
