    For current bulk buy please see this thread.

    It's back!! Bulk buy is still on

    This thread is to confirm order Qty's, price and payment for the Milky White Acrylic Tube.
    I have worked out the price per tube at $20.

    If you would like to order any amount I will require payment prior to the end of the bulk buy on the 20/02/2015. I will be ordering 200 tubes as per MOQ. Once order is placed, it will be approx 6-8 weeks before you receive your tubes.

    You can pick them up or I can have freight organised at your own cost. I did an estimate at www.smartsend.com.au to brisbane for 10 lengths which was $30 & $45 to Noosa. No guarrantees on this price as it is out of my hands. visit smartsend and put in your details for a more accurate quote.

    I will also be making a jig in order to bend my tube into arches and for the locals, I may be able to help you out with yours. Sorry interstate but freight would be a killer for bent tubes.

    Bulk buy ends 20/02/2015 all payments to be made prior to this date

    Description

    $20 per tube (plus 3% PayPal fee as per forum rules - to be confirmed by admin if direct bank deposit is acceptable)


    Opaque Acrylic Tube
    OD wall thickness Length weight
    50MM 2mm 3000mm 1.09kg
    Tube is rigid at room temp but softens at 130 degrees. I recommend hot sand for bending. This stops kinking
    check out this youtube video demonstrating bending PVC. I have tried this on the acrylic and it also works.
    DO NOT HEAT TO TEMP IN VIDEO - sand should be between 130 and 160 degrees

    10 lengths from post code 2747 claremont meadows to post code 5000 Adelaide was approx $40. If you go to www.smartsend.com.au you can pick in your exact location.
    I use for 10 lengths package size 310cm x 11cm x 26cm weight 13kg

    I'd get an estimate for adding extra weight. If you go over a certain amount they need different methods to lift it and hence will cost you more, maybe.

    How about shipped straight from the manufacturer? Will they let you to multiple orders to make up the MOQ?

    MOQ shouldn't be an issue but no they will not split orders. The sample order I received by air freight was 1 piece by 1m and $170

    So each state would need to get 200 orders on their own to make it worth direct shipping?

    I can ship them as part of the 200 order just freight will be extra.
    I actually wanted some 100mm tune too but this require about 120 lengths as they go on material weight for MOQ
    I have over 50 emails in correspondence from this supplier.

    If a state wanted 200 then we could order directly from supplier and avoid the domestic shipping, thats my point.

    Correct, but I want to sell the 200 here first so we can guarantee this order. Darylc are you wanting any.

    Most factories set a minimum order quantity (MOQ) and this will vary between suppliers with quantity, cost or weight used as the minimum order.
    So unless a MOQ is achieved then they wont deal with you. They will not split orders in many cases or if they do you either have to order the MOQ for the second delivery as well or pay at least 20% or more additional costs for a part order

    Each factory deals with MOQ differently
