Springs

Got a quote from South Yorkshire springs, £220 for a set not including VAT and Delivery. Seems a bit steep compared to prices given in previous posts.

Does anyone know of any other suppliers ?

Unfortunately, Tony sold the business earlier this year I believe, hence the price hike by the new owners....

My new supplier was Euro Springs in Dungannon, Northern Ireland.

Just off the phone with one of the engineers. He is reluctant to make them due to the set up costs and he reckons he will have to make them by hand as well.

Over £300 and 2 to 3 month lead time.

Needless to say that has fallen through.
