    Default Mann Lake

    Got to hand it to Mann lake they deliver! I started purchasing from them last year and was impressed. This year we have kept them busy and they have all the bases covered as far as I am concerned.

    Kelleys has let me down big time lately. Delay after delay.

    Dadant hasn't changed over the decade I have been beekeeping...... slow but steady


    If Mann lake keeps doing what they are doing we will be keeping them busy for a long time to come!

    I must say the same for them. I order largely from them and so far I've not had the problems I have had from others. Their shipping is awesome not to mention the rewards program.

    Touché! I ordered jars from them 2 weeks ago. It was on a Wednesday morning and they were at my door by 10 am Friday morning (48 hours from Pennsylvania to Tennessee). And yes with the rewards program and no sales tax, I'll continue doing business with them if they can keep it up.

    I am a very small time buyer, but Mann Lake treats me like a big deal. Brushy's stuff seems to be a little better, but I still buy mostly from Mann Lake.

    I've never had any problems with Mann Lake. They are the supplier I recommend to new beeks who are looking for equipment. I buy their budget supers and they are perfectly functional at a good price. No sales tax, free and fast shipping, and the rewards program are great.

    I've bought all my frames and foundation from Mannlake. I find the bonus room odd. The prices look good up front, but you have buy the through ebay, and lose the free shipping. After shipping you end up paying more for items they deem sub quality than their top stuff with free shipping, so the bonus seems questionable at best.

    I have tried and tried to price Mann Lake away, but when you're ordering in limited quantities like I do... they make the most sense (by far) every time. I've had humble abodes and many other more "bulk" suppliers quote me shipping and once included Mann Lake is still significantly cheaper for me. I ordered some migratory tops awhile back (in winter) and never got around to removing one of them on the bottom of the box until I assembled the frames that were stacked on top of it. During shipping it must have been jarred (it was packed kind of funny). One of the keepers broke off, I emailed them because to me it was a packing issue. I said don't send a new one, I'll fix this one, just wanted them to know that I thought it could have been packed better.

    Three days later I had a new migratory top. Agree with dsegrest that they treat me like I'm a big spender when I'm not. They are always quick to answer questions, you get an actual person on the phone, etc. Granted I haven't order much stuff from elsewhere (one order from Kelley's that got delayed delayed delayed). Mann Lake likely has a lifelong customer here unless something major changes. Absolutely zero complaints.
