Same company...

TP also own Keyline (where we have an account). Keyline are also cheaper than TP - if TP have something that we want that Keyline done have we fax it through to them on our Keyline account and pick it up from TP. Feckin' crazy..

I noticed wickes had got dearer but then i have had timds with them where ive wanted to do a big order so ive gone online and used thier prices to work out how much said order should come to and when ive ordered it for delivery its alot cheaper. Last one i did the order came out bout 250 than it should have been so i paid it and ran quick haha

Think we pay £5.05 for multi (inc vat) and £1.80 for a bead though we buy expamet beads in bulk and they work out at about 80p each for 8'.

Rhys why dont you get your multi from b and q? It's only £4.50 or something (inc vat). Not much of a saving but add that up over the year and it's quite a sum.

Bang & Screw, no chance.. We used to have a 60 day account with them but after 30 days one month they stopped our account. We were waiting for a cheque to clear off a job before we could pay it - they decided to change the account without contacting us so we told em to stuff it up heir arse. My cousin worked on the trade counter and they blew him out along with other members of staff - he got compo for unfair dismissal. Won't use them out of principle.

Our local Keyline is round the corner From me anyway and if we get a biggish job they give us extra discount.

Beads/scrim etc we get from Wack wholesale.
 
I bought a single 8foot stop bead in TRavis Perkins couple of weeks ago which cost me just under three quid. Now the paperwork says it should have been £14.34 plus the VAt befopre thre trade discount was applied..........one fooking bead...robbing barstads....guess where?

Well I've got to say we get looked after very well by TP. I can't be bothered to shop around for the best price on every item we use so apart from beads and scrim we get just about everything from TP. Most items are the same or cheaper than at other merchants and they always get the gear to us quickly and in good condition. We've built up a good working relationship with three or four of the most efficient people in branch and it pays off. We recently got a new Makita DAB radio from them and the manager came out to the counter and let us have it for £98.
