    Hi All.

    I've gotten in contact with the supplier of corflute sheets to Bunnings today. The company is Corex and they are located in Dandenong.
    I've asked for pricing direct to customer and they said they can do this but only if bought in bulk. I advised that it would potentially be for a number of ACL members who could share the pricing. Whilst they haven't given me pricing yet, they have advised the following:
    "The minimum order for 3mm is 380 sheets and 5mm is 240 sheets. We generally produce stock sizes of the both thicknesses in black & white, which are available in 1830 x 1220mm and 2440 x 1220mm."

    Based on this volume and sheet size, are there any fellow locals interested in buying a few sheets? I'm awaiting a reply on actual costs and will update accordingly.

    Also just on a side note, if anyone is interested in some thinner black corflute, i pick it up for free through work.. will get a pic shortly but it would be good for internal dividers or maybe small elements..

    Cheers,
    Nik

    I am happy to jump in on a bulk buy.

    I have seen the Preston one but have not had the time to do a weekday run.

    I think it would be a good price if someone has a van / ute / wagon to transport it in. Also the time to drive to Preston during the week.

    I would be in for 5-10 sheets to start.

    As a side note there is the following business in Carrum Downs (for price reference) **Prices are ex gst **

    WHITE FLUTEBOARD 600MM X 900MM 5MM $5.76
    WHITE FLUTEBOARD 600MM X 900MM 3MM $3.52
    WHITE FLUTEBOARD 1830MM X 1220MM 5MM $21.48
    WHITE FLUTEBOARD 1830MM X 1220MM 3MM $12.69
    WHITE FLUTEBOARD 2440MM X 1220MM 5MM $24.41
    WHITE FLUTEBOARD 2440MM X 1220MM 3MM $15.82


    In comparison of sorts the Preston $6.66 price for 2250 x 1100 is better value than $17.40 for 2240 x 1220

    OK I have some pricing for those interested:

    "Prices for a single pallet lot are as follows:
    2440 x 1220 x 5mm - $14.41 per sheet + GST ($15.85 inc GST) (MOQ 240 sheets)
    2440 x 1220 x 3mm - $8.01 per sheet + GST ($8.81 inc GST) (MOQ 380 sheets)
    Prices are FIS Metro Melbourne, available in either black or white."

    Based on the above these prices appear to be quite good - so who can I put down for 380 sheets of 3mm coro?!

    Not bad - I would like to suggest that if someone has the means to get to Preston (Corflute Protection Sheets - 3mm Sheet Size: 2250 x 1100mm) with the right vehicle then I would think that it would be better cost to all chip in for fuel and not have to order so much.....

    As an example if the purchase was for 50 sheets then we could look at adding 0.40 c per sheet which totals $20 to cover fuel.....???????

    Then each sheet of white 3mm would then cost $7.00 inc gst.........?????

    Just a thought..... :):):):):):):)

    Sounds Good - pricing is pretty much on par with Corex, but doesn't seem to be any MOQ involved?
    Considering Bunnings sheet is 1200 x 900 and is about $9 each, that makes either option sound cheap!!

    Let me measure up the Kia tonight to see if I can fit 2400 x 1220 in it and if so I'll pick up the 20 sheets on my way from home possibly early next week.
    @burnt you still keen for some sheets of 3mm white? How about you @DavidJ247 ?
