Looking for recs on where's the cheapest place to buy electrical supplies (wire, switches, outlets, etc). Fixtures I always find great deals at several stores but I'm taking meat and potatoes here. Electrical panel, breakers etc. Would prefer to go to one store if possible
I have my own company so could purchase from a wholesaler if you have any recs.
Or are you finding better deals online?
Doing a flip and need to purchase electrical materials, hence the question
Look at setting up a Home Depot pro account. You can go into the bid room and negotiate better pricing for projects. Home Depot also owns Wilmar which is only focused on the Multi-family industry. You can basically get everything you need through one provider at a great cost, next day free freight. Home Depot has the pro desk that will also help you with sourcing products and working on quotes. That's where I do all my purchasing for getting my MRO items.
Thanks I'm aware of Pro desk at HD. What about Billows or the other electrical dealers?
Other than HD and Lowes, I've had good dealings with Cooper Electric (formerly Ciro's) on 18th and Jackson in South Philly. They have quality products at reasonable prices. An electrical contractor friend of mine, who does a lot business with them, gets even better prices. So if you plan on using them often, you may be able to get even better deals.
Colonial electric is another popular spot in Philly, that my employer uses alot. It's a school district account, so I can't speak to prices, but they're really helpful and can get you anything you need for any job.
Billows and Rumsey are two other electric supply houses that I use at work, but I don't have too much first hand knowledge on them.
As an FYI-- I got my electrical list (only needed about $1,000 in material total for the house) from my electrician went went price shopping. Surprisingly.. home depot was cheaper then Billows, etc. Also if you setup a Pro account and have an HD credit card (which I do), they send you coupons, including 10% off your purchase and/or no interest financing for 12-24 months! I ended up just paying for the material from HD, but I had a coupon to use, so that was nice!
