Buying parts
« on: August 02, 2015, 07:27:26 PM »
Guys,

I'm finding that my best source for buying parts is on NPD but the problem with that is the cost of having them delivered. Is there a local representative here that bring things in bulk to save on customs and shipping cost?

You check our parts vendor list for Canadian suppliers...and add to it if you find any others.
That is one of the reasons this board started.

Exchange rate, duty and taxes are really taking a bite these days.
That and the additional markup Canadian suppliers add, do not make their prices any better.
I find Ames to be the best for quality, price and delivery.

The grills I just ordered were about $260Can delivered, whereas the Canadian supplier was listed as $350, + delivery and taxes.
