    Default Buying in bulk

    Can anyone tell me a good source for purchasing unassembled mediums and deeps in lots of 50 or more? I'd like to get busy putting together some new equipment this winter before I get so busy in the spring that I don't have enough hours in the day to do everything.

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

    I just finished a skid of 50 supers from manlake. I bought economy boxes and was very happy with the quality. 50 have to come on a truck to a loading dock or fork lift but if you order 40 they come UPS. Free shipping and you dont get charged Minn tax make them a bargin. I also bought 700 frames from them this past fall

    We use Western bee. Just finished putting together 500 budget mediums and half way thru 5000 budget frames. Good price and good quality.

    Mann Lake for the same reasons listed in the threads. Can't beat free shipping and I think they are even having a sale on deeps right now. Good time to buy! I usually buy the cheap stuff and make up for the defects with glue and lots of paint. Haven't had any issues with their equipment, just getting the semi in my driveway.

    I have ordered from Miller bee supply as well very good prices on budget stuff and they use Kelley's foundation. They are not far from me but I don't think it would matter if they were 50 miles away shipping is ridiculous these days, but nice people to deal with good products if they had free shipping I would order from them more. I ordered a hundred # 2 grade frames from them last year and everyone was useable and I also got my extractor from them cause it was cheaper even with shipping than a comparable one at Mann lake. Shop around and look for sales and see what shipping will be b4 u order there are several reputable companies out there as everyone has stated.
