Arqadia Account

Postby Mr.Framey » Mon Sep 17, 2018 11:56 pm

Could anyone tell me a little more info on what's involved in getting an arqadia account? This is the signup form I've found:

https://www.arqadia.co.uk/SupplyImages/newacc-ltd.pdf

But there's all sorts in there about "Please provide in your opinion concerning the ability of your customer to meet a financial commitment of £ per month." and We enclose your administration fee of £ inclusive of VAT. along with a lot of info on your bank details.

Do you have to guarantee them a certain amount a month? I'm interested in ordering some moulding, and I already use their mountboard but I can't guarantee them anything per month as I've just started out. All I'm after are their prices to compare really to decided who to go with.

If I can't get an account, is there anyone with an account who could tell me the current prices for:

https://www.arqadia.co.uk/productdetail ... =BBB089001
https://www.arqadia.co.uk/productdetail ... =135167000

Or know where I could find their prices online? Thanks for any info.

If you register on their website for an online account (not a credit account) you should be able to see the prices. Also order stuff and pay for it on a pro-forma basis.
As long as you establish that you are a bona fide business then there should be no problems.
If you feel you need for a credit account then you do have to jump though a few hoops. :?

this is a little bit left field .......... :giggle:
pick up the phone and speak to them, they have very good customer service and are very helpful, they will answer any questions you may have

I have a pro-forma account with them (never tried to get a credit account with them for some reason) and I place all my orders on line with them, they have my card details, so they take payment straight away, which I have no problem with

I don't think you can do that without an account first so as Steve says you'll have to pick up the phone! I have cash accounts (pro- forma) with Arqadia, Wessex and R&H etc.... you order and pay at the same time.

FYI, Wessex stock Arqadia boards and will sell single sheets as do Rose & Hollis whereas ordering direct from Arqadia is a minimum of 5 sheets of the same colour. That's fine if it's one of your stock colours but for those one off colours single sheets are very handy :D

I see from your link that it's jumbo board you're after.... that's a pack of 125 sheets only (pallet) direct from Arqadia :shock:

Edit, my mistake you can get packs of 5 jumbo from Arqadia :oops:

I buy Arqadia boards from Wessex who I do have an account with. And as David said Wessex will supply in single sheets and if you are fortunate enough to be near a Wessex branch you will find they have a very low minimum order if you collect.

Also, if you take a bag of doughnuts for their tea break they are even more helpful :D

Thanks for all the info. I wasn't aware they'd set you up and account if you rang, the signup form I found was the only way I thought i could get an account. Gave them a ring today and they set me up and account within the hour. Thanks again for the help everyone, appreciate it :)
