Fix8 Total Construction Supply

When it comes to looking for a one stop shop for meeting all of your construction supply needs, then Fix 8 look to have things covered. They have recognised that whilst many people want to shop around for value for money, that the same busy people do not also want to waste time, which would be better spent working, rather than driving around four or five different shops in order to save the very last penny. Given the cost of fuel on top of this then finding one supplier such as Fix 8 that can fulfil all of your construction needs can be a great time and money saver.

Firstly they carry a huge range of fasteners and fixings online from simple screws through to frame fixings and even heavyweight concrete anchors, all of which can be ordered for next day delivery if ordered before 4pm. They also have a dedicated section on their website detailing technical dimensions and specifications of all of the fasteners and fixings that they sell, taking the guesswork out of choosing the right product for the job. This is backed up by company staff that have an outstanding knowledge of fasteners and fixings, and they can provide realistic, practical advice on which products you need to use, and they are all just a phone call away.

Secondly they carry a wide range of professional grade power tools and accessories, also with guaranteed next day delivery. This is because Fix 8 know that when your old drill packs up, or your existing cordless drill battery dies, that you need to be back up and running as soon as possible. It is also the reason why every range of power tools sold by them has been chosen not just to offer you the best price, but also a power tool that is going to last you a long time. Whilst other suppliers maybe happy to sell you a brand new angle grinder every year, Fix 8 would far rather they sell you the right one just the once, rather than the wrong one several times over.

Fix 8 are dedicated to providing you with the best customer service possible, and to their mind good customer service is supplying you with a power tool that lasts for years, not months; along with supplying a vast range of industry products at trade prices.

They also carry an extensive range of general construction products such as fillers, sealants, adhesive and paints as an example. In addition to this they also have an extensive range of hand tools such as general building tools, through to more specialist plumbing tools.

One look at their website and you will see that if you are in the construction industry then there are very few jobs that you will undertake whereby Fix 8 cannot supply everything you need from start to finish, from the power drill you need to make a hole, to the frame fixing you then put in the hole, through to the paint you end up using to paint the frame with. Lastly when it comes to keeping you safe whilst doing every stage of the task in hand then Fix 8 also have an extensive range of safety and personal protection products from protective eye wear, to safety gloves and boots to offer you total protection.

Fix8 Ltd offer a large variety of fixings and fasteners at trade prices, including Machine Screws, Bosch Jigsaw Blades, Self Tapping Screws, Frame Fixings and much more!

Results of Skip and Bin’s UK Skip Hire Prices Research

The data, provided by, is made up from average prices quoted in September 2012 from 3 or more skip hire companies in each area. The data is possibly the only up to date information on skip hire pricing in Britain.

Among the major findings in the data are:

•  Both the sizes of skips and prices vary considerably throughout the UK.

•  London is the most expensive area for all the various sizes of skip, including the most commonly used household skip, the 6 yard ‘builders skip’. The average price in London to hire a 6 yard skip is £210, compared to only £135 in Nottingham. Nottingham is also the cheapest city anywhere in the UK regarding the 6 yard skip size.

•  Construction firms could make notable savings, because prices of 6 and 8 foot skips have a difference of less than than 20%. This suggests that construction companies would be better off by using an 8 foot skip.

•  Liverpool is the cheapest city overall for skip hire. The cheapest skip hire available was as little as £80.

•  For the 12 yard skip, Newcastle proved to be the cheapest city in the UK at £165. For the same size skip, London’s price was almost double that of Newcastle skip hire , at £300.

Skip and Bin managing director Jason Mohr was not surprised at London being the most expensive place in which to hire a skip, and was sympathetic to the problems London skip hire companies face, including the high cost of skip permits. This, he believes, results in some people choosing to dispose of their rubbish illegally instead. Mr. Mohr was also surprised at the price differences of skip hire between cities such as Liverpool and Birmingham.
