Hello from Trading Depot!

About Trading Depot

Trading Depot is the trading name of TRADING DEPOT U.K. Ltd and was established in July 2007 with the goal of creating the leading DIY and Trade website. www.tradingdepot.co.uk was launched in March 2008 as a one-stop solution for the Trade, DIY Markets and retail. Originally launched with just 7,500 products, it now boasts over 50,000 products available to buy online, with hundreds of new ones being added each month.

The wide range of stock enables us to cater for most projects. So whether you're looking for Plumbing Supplies, Electrical Supplies, Heating Products, Lighting, Showers, Shower Trays, Bathroom Suites, landscaping, garden furniture, tools or safety wear you will find it all on our site.
Trading Depot's Price Promise shows our commitment to offering the best value for money across many leading industry brands such as Aqualisa Showers, Bristan Taps, Stuart Turner Shower Pumps and Dimplex Heaters.

In February 2010 Trading Depot moved into a new purpose built warehouse to allow us to keep a larger inventory of stock and increase the speed of delivery still further. We aim to supply a fantastic range of stocked items, dispatched throughout the United Kingdom within 48 hours, at competitive prices.

    The Trading Depot website is supported by 30,000 square feet of warehouse stock ensuring that, where possible, orders will be dispatched within 48 hours.

    The website currently includes products such as Plumbing, Heating, Lighting, Electrical, Showers, Shower Trays, Building materials and Bathroom Suites which feature some of the leading industry brands.
