I don’t understand why nobody thought of Carlite sooner

I don’t understand why Travis jewson’s etc haven’t jumped all over it. As far as I n ow it’s only walls and ceilings selling it I spoke to 2 Travis branches yesterday.

1 said call back in a month for skim!! (Castle donnington)

The other said they have a pallet of multi coming week 27th but they don’t know which day and they are already holding bags back for local spreads.

Wickes is worse than useless imo. At the start of lockdown, when Travis Perkins closed shop overnight and dropped a lot of folk in the dwang, I placed an order (24/3) with Wickes for multi-finish, plaster board and other items. They delivered everything bar the multi finish 06/04. No delivery note and no explanation. Phone calls to the branch get disconnected. Phone calls to their helpline also get disconnected after holding over 30 mins.

I search further afield and placed orders on 06/04 with both Build 4 Less and Insulation Shop. Not as cheap as Wickes. Both charged £25 delivery. Total for 10 bags incl delivery was £107.04 and £114.36. No stock but at least I’m in a delivery queue.

Then I found Carlite at DryWallToolsDirect. So at this stage I have over £1,000 tied up with various plaster orders. (My Carlite was delivered last week, so I’m a happy bunny)

So yesterday when I’m checking my junk mail folder for my click & tip confirmation, I find delivery confirmations from both Build4Less (23/6) and InsulationShop (30/6). Another phone call to Wickes results in being disconnected after 37 minutes.

Wickes don’t care about the small business owner or the home renovator. We found a local building merchant which was great whilst Travis was closed.

DryWallToolsDirect seem to have another Carlite shipment in stock. They’re showing 1,000 bags available (the other day they were down to under 100) Their delivery fee seems to be either 1/4 (£40.70), 1/2 (£43.95) or full pallet (£47.20).

I was in there last week. You can walk in and pay at the counter and they bring the pallet to your van and you load up. Easy peesey.

Or order and pay on the phone and collect.
