Re: Hiring Contractors - Are component/part prices typically higher than online?

The way I look at it, Minney is probably right, the contractors can get it cheaper and thus can sell it to me at "consumer cost." If that's true, then I'm happy to pay the consumer cost. I don't mind paying a bit more, either, especially if they are doing serious legwork, or if they are footing the bill up front for an expensive part.
