New Wickes Repairs and Maintenance Card

Repairs and maintenance firms can simplify and improve cash management control with the new Wickes Repairs and Maintenance Card.

Specialist building contractors offering both planned and reactive repairs and maintenance services can now simplify and improve control of their cash management system with the launch of the Wickes Repairs and Maintenance Card.

Contractors have the flexibility to load a pre-agreed value on to the card, at any time and as frequently as necessary, helping to manage spending. The instant load capability allows the contractor access to the funds immediately at the click of a button, ensuring they have the funds to purchase any products required to complete a job at the time they need it.

This simple solution enables many card holders to be linked to one account, putting building contractors in control of their purchasing whilst freeing up employees to get on with the job. It also eliminates the time consuming processing of expenses claims, petty cash and purchase orders.

As part of the Travis Perkins Group, Wickes has significant purchasing power with a huge range of products available through a nationwide network of stores, together with specialist sector expertise and trusted, experienced staff who understand the trade.

Chris Pentland, National Sales Manager at Wickes for Business, said:

“In the world of contractors time is money and it’s essential that material can be sourced at the right price quickly. Any cash flow problems will have an instant impact with detrimental effect. Our Repairs and Maintenance Card was created because we are fully aware of the frustrations many within the industry face when money isn’t readily available, jeopardising the contractors plan to complete work on time. The card makes the whole process much more seamless and is one less headache for contractors.”
