For more details about AIM and what it can do, please see Our eCommerce Capabilities > AIM.
Free Scheduled Deliveries — Most of our branches offer free deliveries when scheduled ahead-of-time. Same-day deliveries are often possible. When this isn't an option, and you need a delivery immediately, most Elliott Electric Supply locations offer "hotshot" and other expedited delivery options. We'll work with you to time your deliveries as needed, whether you require weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, or daily scheduled deliveries—saving you fuel, transportation, & storage costs.
Project Storage Options
— Our space can be your space. If, for example, your project has limited room for materials or other constraints, you can store materials with us. We can help set up a shipment schedule to bring you the right stuff at the right time. Every detail of every project is accessible to manage and review via ElliottElectric.com, compatible with any device. Read more about our capabilities for Projects with Stored Material
On the other hand, if space isn't an issue at your jobsite, we can cater to your material handling needs with on-site inventory solutions (read more below).
On-Site Inventory Solutions — When your next project demands continual service and plenty of supplies on-hand, our onsite supply solutions are at your disposal. Think of it as your very own Elliott Electric Supply facility right on your jobsite—manned or unmanned—no additional shipping time or hassle required. With a proven record of success, onsite supply facilities help you get your project done faster, at lower cost.
No project is too large — We will stock the onsite supply facilities with everything you need. You will only be billed for what you use, so just grab what you need, and we’ll take care of the rest. In addition to periodic reviews of materials, we have the ability to station an Elliott Electric Supply employee onsite to manage your inventory completely and answer any questions that may arise. We can continually monitor your supplies, ensuring availability, fitment, and replenishment as needed. This way you can focus on the jobsite, and leave the rest to us.
Private Warehouse & Inventory Area Construction — One of the most important aspects of managing your inventory, especially for a large-scale operation, is the designated area for materials—to put it simply, your warehouse. We can help supply what you need to design, build, and manage a highly efficient private warehouse, equipped with our custom technology and software systems. Or, as discussed above, we can set it all up for you. Our attitude is 'anything is possible,' and we're here to provide the best solutions available.
Employee Resources for Inventory Management — Sometimes projects are so big that it makes sense to have staff on-site dedicated to inventory maintenance & management. We can make this happen. You can have your very own Elliott Electric Supply resources, materials, and personnel on hand. We'll make sure you have everything you need at all times!
