As a contractor, you probably find yourself balancing multiple projects at once. Whether you’ve got the same core team of builders, carpenters, flooring specialists, painters, electricians, plumbers and any other home construction professional for each project or you rotate through a network, managing all those projects can be tough if you are working with too many different people or suppliers. While there are lots of tips out there for managing multiple construction projects, we know it’s not easy. Here at Wholesale Cabinet Supply (TheWCSupply.com), we strive to make our cabinetry and flooring products easily accessible for contractors and individual homeowners alike. Since we know you might be wondering whether or not you can order bulk cabinets and flooring for your multi-housing/large scale projects with us, we put together this handy guide to walk you through our process and how you can access our contractor deals, such as our unique free kitchen design!

Kitchen at a Time Cabinets for Contractors

We recognize that not every contractor is working on projects with over 10+ units being built at the same time with the exact same specifications. In fact, a lot of contractors prefer to work with clients directly, helping them achieve the homes of their dreams — just like we do! Our most frequently chosen option by contractors is our Kitchen at a Time, where each kitchen cabinet layout is highly customizable for each individual project. Our PRO Division is a great option for contractors who tend to work directly with homeowners to help them achieve their kitchen, bathroom and laundry room dreams (but more on that below!). Our contractors tend to see discounts of five to 10 percent, but that’s the extent of the benefits here.

Truckload Cabinets for Contractors

If you are a contractor or professional that builds small subdivisions or multi-family complexes that feature similar kitchen layouts with minimal customization, our truckload ordering might be a good option for you. This option usually requires about 10 to 20 kitchens (depending on the number of cabinets in each unit), usually equating to about 250 or more cabinets in a single order. Truckload orders will see savings of an additional 5 to 15 percent on top of our standard PRO pricing (Kitchen at a Time level), which is great for contractors who might be running into budgetary issues with developers or property management groups. As a contractor, you can’t always control the money flow, especially if you’re working with a company and not the homeowner directly. Truckload cabinets are a great option for contractors working on small neighborhoods or even a townhouse neighborhood and needing to squeeze as much margin as possible.  These orders arrive RTA (ready to assemble) but if you need them assembled, we do have options to deliver assembled depending on the location of your project.

Container Cabinets for Contractors

For contractors who work on large scale projects, such as apartment complexes or large neighborhoods, our container ordering might be the best solution. These orders usually require at least 600 cabinets of the same door style, or around 40 to 60 kitchens, to be ordered at a time. Similar to Truckload orders, these designs usually have minimal variation from unit to unit due to their volume - but that isn’t always the case. However, our Container option does feature the best level of savings! You’ll usually see about an additional 20 percent off Truckload pricing, which is about 30 percent or higher over our standard contractor pricing. However, you will need to have storage for all these cabinets because all cabinet sets will need to be ordered and delivered at the same time in order to qualify. Like truckload orders, container orders come RTA but we can arrange for assembly to be provided depending on the location of the project.  

Have additional needs?

The above is just a rough overview of what we are able to provide.  We can customize projects from construction (particle board vs plywood) to door style to size, scale and scope.  Just let us know what your project requires and we will do our best to find a solution that fits your needs.
