Matsource has been built by individuals that have worked in the engineering / manufacturing sector for quite some time! We’re aware of the difficulties and time pressures in obtaining materials to both quote and process jobs.
Enter your quote details once and we will go out to all the suppliers on our database that offer the materials you need; you and your team can concentrate on what’s important to you – running your business. With access to a wider range of suppliers you can order based on cost or delivery speed dependent on what is important to you for that job.
Matsource will charge you 7.5% (exclusive of VAT) of the value of any purchase for use of the site. This is included in the prices that you see.
Our suppliers stock a wide range of materials all of which are accessible to our customers. We aim to continually add more suppliers to further expand the range of available materials in the future.
Matsource introduces customers and suppliers, but the contract for the sale of the goods is between you and the supplier. Suppliers will detail in their quote whether they will offer credit terms or require an initial payment. You can choose a supplier that best meets your needs.
When entering your quote request you have the options to specify any certification requirements. All information entered is submitted to our range of suppliers who will quote accordingly (dependent on the level of certification required a cost may be applied by the supplier).
Our suppliers are based across the UK and if quoting for the work will arrange delivery to your offices.
The website runs 24 hours each day. However, when entering details outside of the normal working hours to maximise the number and quality of quotes returned please remember to allocate a longer quote return timeframe as the opening hours of suppliers will vary.
The suppliers will outline the lead time in their returned quotes.
Lead times can be subject to the types of material requested, your location and the availability. If a short lead time is required you are able to mark this in your request for quote.
As with customers, suppliers need to register for the Matsource portal and a series of checks are conducted prior to approval and full access to the system.
The simple answer is no. Many of our suppliers will provide a cut to length service.
Yes. You can set up as many delivery addresses as you need in your customer portal and choose the relevant one in the request for quote process. When your quote is submitted, we can then make sure that only the suppliers that cover the delivery area are included in the quote process.
Your order confirmation will include details of the supplier(s). You can contact the supplier directly about any query in relation to your order. A copy of the email will be sent to Matsource who will be able to monitor responses.
