Wanted 3 sheets of 10mm glass 270mm x 230mm so got prices from 2 local suppliers.

First price was £6 + vat per sheet available within one hour.

Second price £45 + vat per sheet available 4-6 weeks.

These prices for exactly the same product.

????????????????????
It only happens all the time.

The 4-6 waiting time probably got you a fresher product the other might have been near its sell by date!

The first one had them in stock

The second one didn't and it would be a custom order

This is what I paid roughly when I built a Aquarium last year, I used 10mm glass for that

People who sell glass usually just cut to customers sizes as normal practice. The only standard pre-cut size most will stock is the 24" X 24" sheets for Greenhouses.

The one asking £45/sheet obviously didn't want your business.
