Byggmax proud winner in price tests

Byggmax won several price tests in Norway during 2010 and 2011. In October 2011, "DinSide.no", noted that Byggmax had the lowest price for 40 liters of birchwood. During spring 2010 "TV2 hjelper dig" found that Byggmax was the cheapest alternative when purchasing materials for a 20 sqm patio. The morning paper "Faedrelandsvennen published a price test in August 2010 which showed that Byggmax performed best when four construction-materials chains were compared.

- We are proud of the results in the tests. Our goal is to always be the cheapest alternative when purchasing construction materials, that is why we offer a lowest-price-guarantee for our whole product range. If you buy something from us and then find it at a lower price somewhere else in the local area, we will refund the difference plus 10% of it, says Magnus Agervald, CEO at Byggmax.
