Online Supply House Recommendation

I need to buy some items like wiring trough boxes, splice kits for larger conductors, power distribution blocks, contactors and the like. I often get stuff from Grainger, but I'd like to know if there is another online source with a comparable selection but better pricing.

Have you checked with an electrical supply house. You may find that even though you aren't a wholesale customer that their prices are pretty good and may actually be less than Graingers.

There are a lot of sellers on eBay for supplies. If you are looking for something specific... try doing a search and see if an online vendor pops up.

I have most stuff shipped to me (can't get to the local supply house easily). E-bay is ok, but a good online supply house is going to have the whole range of products organized in manner that lends itself to browsing.

Folks out there must have experience with some of the better online sources not named e-bay!!

There aren't a lot of "full line" online distributors that I know of.

A few to look at. A lot of times shipping eats into any savings.

Your big box stores carry a lot in their warehouses that is not always stocked at their stores and will ship either directly to you or to the store you select.
