Sounds about right. We're having stockists quote price validity of 24hrs on stainless and mild steel, I've only ever known that on volatile materials like brass! Mild & Stainless steel quotes used to be valid for 1-2 weeks from most suppliers, and that's now gone out the window...The price for my steel restock made me have a look on the internet for a cheaper source than my usual supplier. I made up my list on Friday, but had to check some sizes for a gate I'm making. I took a snapshot of the order, because the site wouldn't save my basket. Went to place the order today and the cost has gone up since Friday!!! lol about another 1% on a £300+ order
Prices appear to be rising daily across the board on metals.
