    Default Easifill 45 @ B&Q


    At a small job this morning. I had to nip round to the local B&Q for a few grams of easi fill 45 as I had ran out earlier.

    Wait for it.... I had to pay 15.98 for ... not two bags but a single measly 12 kilo bag of setting compound (or maybe its only 10 but thats not the point) It was buy that or I had the option of driving across town for 30 minutes each way to get to my normal merchant. Do they not realise theres a recession on? No wonder the shelves were still full of this gear and their 25 a bag Gyproc joint cement.

    Bye bye B&Q. #robbingbastards

    to us B@Q are like the wetherspoons of the plastering industry, if i am doing a large plastering job i can get pallets of plaster cheaper than most places as it has a short shelf life, but they will also price match and beat by 10% any quote you have within a ten mile radius, so they should price match for you, thing to do if you have to buy a bag at inflated price they charge is get one and then pick one up at your normal place and take that back to B&Q and get your money back next time your passing

    I would say that you could get a far suprerior product for a more competitive rate if you used USG Easy Sand which is readily available through out the UK!!! but Amestaper would kick my arse if I did!!!
