HBA Endorses BuildPerks

HBA Endorses BuildPerks

Your Home Builders Association of Greenville has added a new program to its Affinity Endorsements menu. BuildPerks is the nation’s premier customer rewards program exclusively for the home building industry. Although relatively new to the Southeast, BuildPerks has been operating the industry’s most successful rewards program for more than 25 years. As a loyalty marketing/incentive program, BuildPerks is a frequent buyer program in which builders and remodelers (“Members”) earn PerkPoints by purchasing products & services from participating Suppliers (“Sponsors”) and paying their invoices within the Sponsor’s terms.

The BuildPerks model is proven to increase profitability. Participating suppliers will:

  • Retain Most Desirable Builder/Remodeler Customers
  • Improve Outstanding Accounts Receivables
  • Expand Product Line Sales
  • Acquire new Builder/Remodeler Business

BuildPerks Sponsor Testimonial:
“The uniqueness of this program cultivates a strong tie to all of our customers. While any company can reward their customers with incentives, our points are coming from many complementary Suppliers throughout the industry, giving our customers not only a critical mass of points, but a strong loyalty to all of their Suppliers. This value creates a strength in our relationship that cannot be broken by cheap pricing & ultimately drives more business through our doors.”

Mark Scherer, Scherer Bros. Lumber
Brooklyn Park, MN

To participate, suppliers are encouraged to contact BuilderPerks about the program.  Builders, you need to do nothing.  Your suppliers will establish your profile with BuildPerks and begin awarding points to your company in the coming months.

BuildPerks Benefits:

  • Free BuildPerks Membership
  • Participation does not affect pricing
  • Earn PerkPoints for purchases paid ontime
  • Redeem PerkPoints for airline tickets, hotel stays, and other merchandise
  • Travel to Grand Desinations

SCHBSIF Can Now Write for Non-Residential Accounts!

SCHBSIF Can Now Write for Non-Residential Accounts!

The South Carolina Home Builders Self Insurers Fund (SCHBSIF) announced this week that it has begun writing Workers’ Compensation policies for non-residential accounts.

SCHBSIF is an exclusive member benefit of the Home Builders Association of South Carolina. Members of the HBA of Greenville are eligible to purchase Workers’ Compensation Insurance from SCHBSIF. The SIF was organized in 1995 and its mission is to provide stable, affordable Workers’ Compensation Insurance to members of the Home Builders Association.

Policies now being written include commercial general contractors and subcontractors who are engaged in new construction, upfitting, or renovations of non-residential projects. SCHBSIF is now able to provide coverage to entities whose exposures are 100% commercial and who perform on-site work at heights of 3 stories or less. Risks that fall outside this scope may be considered on an individual basis.

SCHBSIF also will consider businesses that provide services such as electrical or mechanical maintenance to industrial concerns like manufacturing facilities and governmental entities.

Membership in the Home Builders Association of South Carolina continues to be a requirement for participation in the SCHBSIF.

For questions regarding these new opportunities please contact Brandy Shealy, SCHBSIF Underwriting Manager, at or 800-678-8178.

In addition, SCHBSIF has announced that it will be converting to a mutual insurance company in 2011. “Our target for conversion to mutual is July 1, 2011,” said Andrew Woodham, SCHBSIF Marketing Director. “Conversion to mutual will create further opportunities for insurance products for HBA members.”
