Merchant services for top quality materials and tight cost control
Our merchant services framework allows you to work directly and compliantly with a wide selection of market-leading suppliers for materials and services. We can offer an over the counter, van stock or bespoke, fully-managed store service. Detailed monthly management information helps you achieve greater workforce and materials purchasing efficiency right down to each individual van and operative.
Market tested merchants you can trust
CHIC manages a comprehensive price catalogue for each merchant, to offer you volume discounts and benchmarked value for money on all the materials and parts most commonly used for responsive repairs and planned investment works.
We review manufacturers’ and suppliers’ prices regularly to keep you in touch with the latest top products and cost trends. Each month you’ll receive a detailed analysis of your spending with tips on more cost-effective products and options to help you stay within budget.
Our approach helps you to increase the productivity of your repairs team, adding frequently used items to van stocks, to increase the number of jobs each operative is able to complete in a working day. Time saved on travelling to and from the store increases efficiency and reduces cost.
Choose between a multi-merchant or one-stop-shop approach, backed by our expert, on-call contract support for:
- Day to day repairs
- Vacant homes
- Gas repairs and servicing
- Electrical work

We can also supply all major component materials through merchants from our established supply chain at market-leading prices. CHIC merchants offer full EU-compliance, with ongoing management support to drive efficiency.
