    Default Experience with Rhul Bee Supply in OR

    Hi we are looking at buying an Maxant extractor and Maxant said that Rhul is one of their west coast distr. Has anyone had any issues with Rhul? Or do you know of any other Maxant suppliers, we are in CA?
    Thanks

    They're great people to work with. I've bought a little of everything from them.

    That's my main supplier. Started with them a couple years ago and have bought most of my stuff from them since. Great people and they have some very good classes. The mead making class was awesome. From what I can remember of it.

    I went to their store several times just to look and learn before ever buying anything. The staff have always been helpful to me. The guy that helped my wife and I with getting our first hives knew that we are newbie's and sorted through the pallets of unassembled wooden ware to make sure that all of the boards were straight and fit together. He also discussed how to put the hive together even though the printed directions were easy enough to understand. I just appreciate the time Ruhl Bee Supply took to get us off to a good start.

    Nothing against Ruhl, but last year better bee in NY was a couple hundred cheeper. Shipping the 3/6/9 frame across country was only about $80
    Its worth looking into.

    Ruhl bee supply has been around for nearly 100 years or over 100 years cant remember how long cause I haven't been around since they began, but I do know John the owner and he is a very honest man. Does this mean he'll give you the lowest price out there, maybe not but what he says is what will happen..

    I have been doing business with Ruhl Bee for about 20 years. Yes they have been in business for 100+ years. Cheryl and and son, Tory had the business up to about 3 years ago when they sold. She was Bill Ruhl's niece. I am sure that John will be competitive. However, they have a different business model, I have had some unsatisfactory dealings with them. Started doing more of my business with someone else.

    All good. I have taken things back as I changed my mind and they do it all with a smile.

    I've used them 4 or 5 times and strongly recommend them to anyone.
    Fast and friendly service.
