Do asc deliver nationally?
Put the same sizes in the aluminium warehouse site and it's £8.39 more, plus delivery at £12.49 so that's £20.88 saved. I'm happy to make a 5-10 minute phone call to save 20 quid!
I don't think they deliver nationally as it just arrives on one of their company flat trucks. Still it might be worth asking if you're ordering a reasonable amount?

i guess its swings and roundabouts then jonathan,my last order from them was a little over 100 quid for 20mm plate and by my reckoning and looking on the AW Site id saved about £1.95p lol wasnt worth it.
ive used both companys a bit now and i will say in asc,s favour i only bother with the eco cast but where asc will have the courtesy to ring or mail and say look we have your plate ready to send but its damaged or marked on one side do you want us to send it?? AW just send it then ignore you when you winge about it.
Also, when they didn't have enough of something I wanted in stock they sent what they had then the rest in a couple of days, which I thought was good service.
take back everything i said back about AW
All has arrived. perfect condition.

Asc wouldn't deliver to me when I asked them about delivery but that was quite a while ago so may have changed, being in scotland probably didn't help either as some people seem to think that non of Scotland is covered by mainland UK.
Jonathan if you are using ASC quite a bit then you will probably have a trade account which could easily make the prices they charge you lower than anyone who is contacting them for the first time especially if they don't mention it is trade.
I will post my question here as it relates to "aluminium warehouse"
how accurate they doing cuts ?
let's say that I need 200x200mm aluminum plate., they declared that "Cutting Tolerance: + 2.0mm / - Nil", it will be very complicated to get rid of extra 1 or 2mm on table saw or chop saw I thing?.
Maybe it will be better to make orders on over sized plates?, and after cut to size what I need?
