GCBAA Partner Programs

The GCBAA Partners Program provides significant discounts for products or services your GCBAA member business may utilize. GCBAA has negotiated these programs to save your company money and to improve your margins. Each program's requirements and enrollment procedures are different. Please read carefully the procedures for those programs for which you elect to enroll.

Caterpillar Inc. and the Cat dealer network through their Cat Rental National Accounts Program have created an incentive program to further Caterpillar's commitment to supporting the GCBAA and the GCBAA Foundation. This program will recognize the collective rental volume of GCBAA members and reward a rebate of one half of one percent (0.5%) rental volume of our membership to the GCBAA and Foundation. Participation in this rebate program couldn't be easier. Simply rent machines from a participating Cat Dealer and leave the rest to GCBAA. Your company will be loaded into the Caterpillar tracking system and all eligible rentals will be combined with the rebate paid to the aggregate number. Eligible machine rentals will be from a Cat Machine Dealer or Cat Dealer Rental store only and not include other dealer divisions such as SiTech, Cat Power, or Cat Marine. Contact GCBAA Members Chris Caccavale at (507) 647-9157 or GCBAA_Cat_Contract.pdf for a copy of the contract.

GCBAA members in the Builder categories as well as some Associates that may qualify can benefit from a National Accounts discount program through the over 160 Wacker Neuson distributors around the United States. Sign up is easy, simply contact the GCBAA Executive Office (402) 476-4444 or GCBAA Member Garrett Drury at garrett.drury@wackerneuson.com or (503) 250-2838. Wacker Neuson joined the GCBAA in 2014 and has been active supporting GCBAA National and Regional Meetings. Listening to Builder’s unique needs on construction sites, Wacker Neuson offers a specialty machine that has been of great benefit to renovation work. If you are interested in a free demonstration of one of these machines, we encourage you to contact Jonah above. We appreciate the support of our members and their willingness to create national account programs to support our member benefit program and the “Buy from Within” model.
