    Just thinking, is there any place apart from WCW and soap national to get rubbers. They always seem like proper ripoffs for a bit of rubber, end up paying 10 quid for 18" including delivery etc. Wtf??

    Any place to get bulk cheap, or just singles??

    Cheers

    I buy from Ace Janitorial.

    They are local to me so I don't shop around for prices I just pop in and buy.

    There are loads of places online to buy rubber. Just google window cleaning supplies or equipment. The problem is if you only buy a few you will end up paying delivery but most places offer free shipping on orders over £50 (and do bulk buy offers). If you would rather buy from one place, find the cheapest on the net then ask your preferred supplier if they do price matching.

    If you haven't a window cleaning store in your area you can try a local janitorial shop but you will usually end up paying 2 or 3 times the price compared to online purchasing.

    I too am pissed off buying **** quality for silly prices. There is 1 local shop and they have much of a choice.

    Here's where I am putting in for my next order of scrims and rubbers

    That's a rip off!

    What's wrong with soap national?

    http://www.soapnational.co.uk/acatalog/squeegee-rubbers.html

    These are the cheapest I can find & I always look around. It's £18 for 10 x 42" strips, so you can get 30 14" bits out of that.

    By time you add VAT & delivery, it works out about 80p per rubber- you won't get cheaper than that.[hr]
    That's nearly half the price of screwfix!
