Are you sure about that tefer2?
I see that Westernbee has budget supers for 5.50 if you buy in bulk, whereas the cheapest I see them at Dadent is 7.75 each.
I have ordered from Westernbee before. They are a little odd. I find that their customer service is sort of funky. Also I hate having to wait for a shipping quote because their online store doesn't calculate it. On the other hand it seems that for me and my location they have the best prices and shipping rates. I have been pretty happy with the gear that I have purchased. I got a pallet of budget grade supers and frames from them a few years back and only had a few throwaways.
I have also purchased from Mann Lake. I like the fact that the shipping is already figured into the price so that you can go online and see immediately what the order is going to cost. Also their customer service is much less funky, more official and solid sounding on the phone.
I am currently looking to purchase some more gear and so I have been doing some research. Here is the breakdown of my order and quotes from both companies:
WW619 6 5/8 Supers - Budget STANDARD 10-FRAME $5.50 x 50 $275.00
WW629 6 1/4 Budget Frame WEDGE TOP BAR/SOLID BOTTOM BAR-WAX FOUNDATION $0.50 x 300 $150.00
Total $ 545.00
WW-607_b 6 5/8" Unassembled Medium Super Budget 10 Frame $7.70 x 50 $385.00
FR-832 6 1/4" Unassembled Select Frames - Groove Top - Case of 100 $77.00 x 3 $231.00
No Shipping Cost
So it looks like, to my zip code at least, that even with added shipping Westernbee beats Mann Lakes price by $70.
However, the way that Westernbee does their shipping again becomes an issue. I saw on the quote that the shipping quoted was for shipping to a "commercial location" as opposed to a "residential location", so I have had to ask for a new quote that includes residential shipping to see if that changes the price. Kind of a pain in the *&%*&%$. I am hoping that on Monday they will get back to me with an updated quote and I will then be able to compare their prices and chose which to order from.
