Special discount offers for HIA members from HIA members.

Mates rates

Special discount offers for HIA members from HIA members.

Most tradies know all too well how it feels to be on the receiving end of asking for a special discount… ‘Reckon you could give me mates’ rates?’

Luckily, as an HIA member, you’re part of a unique community. A community where we do what we can to help each other out - and there’s a select group of HIA members that are able to lend a hand.

So, here’s all of your local mates rates discounts – available to you exclusively as an HIA member.

Now it’s your turn to receive mates rates!

We’re launching mates rates offers with our Queensland HIA members to start with – but mates rates will be coming soon to a region near you.

The heart of our association is you – our members. Our community hub is a place where we can learn and support each other.

The Plunge Pool Company

Plungie™ is offering any builder with an HIA membership a 20% discount off RRP on their range of precast concrete plunge pools.


As Australia's only nationally procurable concrete pool solution for builders, there's no wonder why Plungie™ was awarded 'Best in Class' at Australia's Good Design Awards in the Building and Hardware category. Their pools are pioneering the future of swimming pools, bringing the fastest, easiest, and highest quality concrete pool to the market.


"Enjoy your pool in days, not months" is their promise, and they certainly can deliver. By deconstructing and engineering the concrete pool building process, they've streamlined both production and on-site build times, guaranteeing a lead time as little as two weeks if needed.


The Trade Alliance Group

Why should the volume builders and contractors be the only ones with sharp prices? Trade Alliance Group (TAG) is a buying group who wants to see you succeed in #BuildingBetterBusiness.


By joining the fight for better prices and service, you can help yourself, and other small builders and tradies like you, achieve much more competitive prices on building materials than possible on your own.


HIA members receive free TAG membership, saving another $400 per year on top of the $1,000s in material savings. Are you a builder, carpenter, landscaper, concretor or painter?


It’s time to #JoinTheFight and start #BuildingBetterBusiness.
