Why Join N1 Buying Group?

Buying groups are a proven model to help independent businesses remain independent. N1 Buying Group is made up of other independent car wash multi-site operators and distributors who want to remain independent but be more profitable and competitive in their market.

No matter how prominent you see your business as in the industry, you’re not larger than the collective of the N1 membership. Your Membership can help grow your business. The membership fees will prove to be a very cost-effective investment and essential to the survival and health of similar independents in our sector.

How the Group Works

Each Member, when accepted into N1, is assigned a unique member number. Members continue to place orders with their Suppliers, in the same manner, they have always ordered. This may include phone, fax, the Supplier’s website or, EDI purchase orders. The N1 office will advise Suppliers of the Member’s unique N1 Member Number for the Member’s ordering location (this will be included in every Supplier document). When Members place their first order with an N1 Supplier, they simply confirm the Supplier has correctly registered their N1 Member Number and continue normally.
