Can anyone give me an idea what to expect to pay for 3 pieces of corian that size and possibly point me in the direction of a source.
Bobby,

I don't know how far it is from you to Ruston, but I have 4 sheets 3' x 10' of bone white Corian here. I am sure we can work something out on price. Send me a PM.

Dan

Called the distributor again, once again got the bums rush screw them guys.

Conversation lasted about 8 seconds, I said "Hi, I'm looking for a source of 1/4" corian, would that be something you guys handle" ?
He said "No we are a distributor we don't do retail sales" and hung up.

I get this type of call a good 5-10 times a day, I basically handle them the same way. "hey I need you drill my hinge holes" and or sell solid surface as well.

I do sometimes get a can you help me with a bit of a soft tone and I listen for a few minutes. if a guy says he needs some small pieces that's one thing, guy looking for a source from my supply chain well that is another story. now remember we cannot hear tone nor actual goings on thru a written post. it may take some butter but this can be done

Don't see the parallel Jim, I was asking to buy a sheet of corian, not help in drilling holes or a good source for hinges. They are listed as the corian distributor for south east Michigan, and a guy here said you don't need any special requirements to get 1/4".

I don't know or really care how the sourcing thing works, I do know I would not do any business with them if my life depended on it.

Wow, I did not mean to cause a ruckus and I'm sorry if I did. I did think that one of the reasons of this forum though was to provide help and assistance to fellow camaster owners. I am not out to steal someone source or their supply and I'm not looking for a special deal. I will pay whatever the market price is for anything that I purchase from someone and I will also put the effort into finding what I'm looking for. But as Xray stated, if they will not even give you the time of day, then it's hard to do business with someone. And, I also prefer not to deal with that type of business.

Again, I'm sorry if I cause a ruckus.

I actually understand why they are that way, not gonna try and explain it here, I think I am the nicest guy in town. but I hang up on a good 40 calls a day and deleted a good 100 emails only so much time for what you can do and for who.
