    Default Where to buy medium supers in bulk?

    Hello,

    I'm looking to expand my apiary and buy 300 medium 8 frame boxes. Are there companies that specialize in "bulk" super sales that offer greater discounts than the usual suppliers. What should I expect to pay when buying 300 medium 8 frame boxes? Do you have any suggestions on companies that offer good discounts when buying large quantities? I'm in Michigan.

    Thanks.

    At that quantity, you can probably get them for under $7.50 a box at Mann Lake on Black Friday.

    Mann Lake currently is offering their 8 frame budget grade medium supers for $8.25 in quantities of 250 or more. I would call around and ask for a quote from the big names in the business. That lets them know you are shopping.
    Thankfully, the bees are smarter than I am. They are doing well, in spite of my efforts to help them.

    Try Westernbee.com Good ponderosa pine boxes. Freight might kill the deal though. Black Friday sales a good option.

    Shastina is right there with Mannlake. Shipping hurts them. On frames I haven't found a better price than Shastina. Right after i bought mine for the year.

    Take a look at Beeline Woodenware. They are in MI. I get all my boxes from them and they are competitively priced with Mann Lake, etc.
