Builder Distributors

What is a builder distributor? Why should you care?

Answers from one of Arizona's Largest.

Production home builders, custom home builders, architects, designers, and other members of the construction trade need wholesale builder distributors for much of their supply chain in order to complete their projects on budget and on time. But WHAT OR WHO IS A BUILDER DISTRIBUTOR? To answer this question, we've created a checklist. To really be a builder distributor, your supplier should be able to meet most, if not all, of the criteria on the checklist at the bottom of this page.

QUICK TIP: One test to assess whether a firm fits the description of a contract distributor is to find out how the company describes itself. Look for clues in their name such as words like wholesale, distributor, builder, contract, supply, or supplier in the company name. Check the About Us heading of their webpage. You may be surprised to find that there are some leading so called distributors in town with websites that don't mention their connection to the contract side of the business.

Check the Arizona Wholesale Supply About Us page by clicking on the image below:

Builder Distributor Checklist:

  • Offers products and brands that the contractor or trade professional needs.
  • Maintains a warehouse facility to store and distribute products.
  • Has a fleet of trucks and drivers dedicated to delivering the products to the jobsite.
  • Employs trained installers.
  • Has billing capabilities.
  • Provides adequate showrooms open to the trade.
  • Can supply references from other contractors.
  • Member in good standing of key builder organizations: HBACA and/or SAHBA.

  • Works with the design community where applicable NARI, ASID, NKBA, etc.
  • Has a dedicated outside sales staff.

Don't make it hard on yourself by having a haphazard and ill-conceived supply chain. Review this checklist and assess your business relationships with your suppliers. Make sure you're trade partners have the capabilities that you need for the future and are a good match for your business model.

Call or visit the professionals at Arizona Wholesale Supply to find out how they can serve your business needs.

Appliance Delivery from Arizona Wholesale Supply

Your Home Delivery Installation and Service

Floor Covering and Major Appliances from Arizona Wholesale Supply

Arizona Wholesale Truck

I know a little bit about the great appliances at Arizona Wholesale Supply because I sold appliances myself for a number of years. I also know the great sales people at Arizona Wholesale Supply because of my longstanding association with them. But, today I'm writing as a customer about the Arizona Wholesale Supply delivery and installation experience.

I recently embarked on a major remodeling project and purchased all new carpet, new tile, and new appliances from AZ Wholesale. Whether it was the Shaw carpeting and floor tile or the KitchenAid and Whirlpool appliances, each time a delivery was scheduled I received a phone call from the office advising me of the scheduled delivery and time frame. The day before, and again early on the morning of the delivery, I received calls confirming and updating the delivery time.

Deliverymen

Delmar Contreras and Antonino Gallardo, Arizona Wholesale Supply

The Arizona Wholesale Supply delivery truck arrived with my Whirlpool washer and dryer, and KitchenAid microwave/hood and refrigerator. Two neat and polite men wearing AZ Wholesale Supply shirts identified themselves and came in to take a look at the install locations. They quickly went about their business prepping the appliances; one man working on the washer and dryer – the other taking care of the microwave/hood and refrigerator. The washer was installed first, giving the installer time to run the washer through a short cycle while completing the rest of the installation. Therefore, he knew that the washer worked, and there were no leaks. Meanwhile, the other installer had installed and vented the KitchenAid microwave hood combination. The men teamed up, and carefully wheeled in my KitchenAid refrigerator.

They removed the packing, tape, and film from each of the appliances, installed add-ons suh as the water filter, etc., connected all the water lines using high quality braided hoses, wiped down the appliances, and removed instructions and warranty cards placing them in an adjacent drawer. After completing the installs, they checked things over and gave us a brief explanation of how the appliances worked, thanked us, and were on their way.

Antonio Gallardo, Arizona Wholesale Supply

A couple weeks later, when I was ready for my KitchenAid double oven range and KitchenAid Superba dishwasher, a new installation team arrived, and I had a similar terrific experience. I'd be remiss if I didn't also mention the professional work of the carpet and tile installation team from Arizona Wholesale.

The delivery and installation folks at Arizona Wholesale Supply really know their stuff, and I really appreciated their courteous, professional demeanor. KUDOs to Arizona Wholesale Supply's delivery and installation service.

Appliance Replacement Installations

Expect the Unexpected
When replacing standard appliances, you might think that everything is straightforward.

Step 1. Take out the old.

Step 2. Put in the new.

That’s it? Not quite! Here’s an example of what happened during a recent “routine” installation. The homeowner purchased a 3 piece appliance package. 1.electric range, 2. dishwasher, and 3. micro-hood to replace an existing range, dishwasher,and vent hood. The old appliances were Harvest Gold so that gives you an idea that they’ve been in there a while.

Dishwasher

The kitchen floor was tiled AFTER the old dishwasher had been installed so that the tile was higher than and butted-up against the dishwasher. Therefore, the old dishwasher was hemmed in and could not be removed. The installer offered up two options.

  1. Chip out a couple of tiles which would enable him to slide out the dishwasher far enough to tip it up and pull it out of the hole.
  1. Remove the countertop section above the dishwasher to allow the dishwasher to be lifted out. This would entail cutting or breaking some part of the countertop.

Angle Stop

Matching kitchen tiles and grout were found in the garage so option 1 was the obvious choice. Two tiles were chipped out so that old dishwasher could be removed. The tiles would have to be replaced by the homeowner.

Next, the installer turned the water shutoff valve (aka: angle stop) to shut off the water supply to the dishwasher, and the valve sprung a leak. This is not uncommon for a nearly 30 year old valve. It has nothing to do with either the dishwasher, or the installer. (By the way, the water shutoff valves behind your washing machines are equally subject to the same problem). The water was turned off pending replacement of the shutoff valve by the homeowner, and the new dishwasher was installed.

Vent hood

The old vent hood was connected to a standard 6″ round duct. Microwave hoods come equipped with a recirculating vent meaning that they do not require an external duct, OR they can be configured to duct out through a rectangular 3 1/4″ by 10″ duct. Either way, they do not come ready to duct outside via a 6″ round duct. To do this, a transition duct is required to transition from 3 1/4″ by 10″ rectangular to 6″ round. Installers do not carry these on their trucks. In this case, because the micro-hood was already set for recirculating the homeowner elected to go with that and simply cap off the existing 6″ round duct.

Range

Finally, it was time to install the electric range. The original range was installed in the 1980’s, and pre-dated the requirement to have an *anti-tip device. Fortunately, the installer was well-trained. He removed the anti-tip cleat from the range use and care manual, measured and drilled the holes in the floor, and attached the cleat so that the range could be secured to the floor. It took only a few minutes to do this, and the range slid neatly into place.

The lesson here is: Even a standard replacement installation is likely to require some non-standard work. Be ready to go with the flow. To be sure that the job is done to your satisfaction, rely on a company that has professional installation such as Arizona Wholesale Supply Company.

*For more information, on anti-tip devices refer to our previous blog: Safety First – Anti-tip devices.

Safety First – Range Anti-Tip Device

New Range?

Don't forget the anti-tip device

Anti-tip devices have been required on all ranges by UL since 1991. All major appliance manufacturers provide anti-tip devices at no charge with freestanding and slide-in ranges. It is the homeowner's responsibiltiy to make sure that this device is installed with the range.

Do not ignore this. It's a mistake to think that this is just another example of bureacratic interference and a waste of your time. Whether you are having your new range installed or installing it yourself, you must be certain that your anti-tip device is installed. It is critically important and could in fact prevent serious injury. We've embedded a brief YouTube video below that explains the need for anti-tip devices:

While we don't want to belabor this point, the anti-tip device is too often ignored in the installation process. It's not at all difficult to install, but does take a few minutes. It's also worth noting that if you ever have a home inspection done in the process of selling or buying a home, checking for an anti-tip device is a standard procedure for home instpectors.

anti-tip bracket

anti-tip bracket

anti-tip bracket installed

The device itself is simply a bracket or cleat that is installed behind the range. One of the rear leveling legs on the range slides into the bracket preventing the range from tipping forward.

If your range is already installed, you can easily check for the anti-tip device by grasping the range from the back and pulling forward. If the range does not pull forward, the anti-tip device is secured. If the range does pull forward, you need to install the anti-tip device. Check the installation instructions that came with the range. There's a good chance the bracket is in the package. If not, call the range manufacturer's 800 number. They will be happy to send you one. Otherwise, you should be able to pick one up inexpensively at an appliances parts store.

Some installers ignore this important step in the installation process or charge extra for it. At Arizona Wholesale Supply, installation of the anti-tip device is included in the installation charge.
