    I paid in Dec 1018 18.75 +VAT but last week paid £3.50 for 1200 x 450 equiv to 18.66 as full sheets 2.4 x 1.2.
    Buying 25 sheets I would think you should better your quoted price. Depends on make off course If it Kingspan then go for it. Where are you shopping best deals if you compare builders merchants found them lot cheaper than any on line stuff.

    That's what I paid recently for a one 2.4 x 1.2m sheet of "generic" PIR 50mm from my local building supplies company. (Xtratherm brand - I think that is all they stock). Celotex or Kingspan I suspect may be more expensive?

    Has anyone used “onlineinsulation-sales.com” ? They are quoting £17.39 a sheet including vat and delivery,(quinn therm) but does’nt seemossible to actually speak to anyone it was a add that sprung up on fb , site says deliveries delayed. Seems a bit odd.

    Putting the “onlineinsulation “ address intovthe web results in a couple of redirects to the sheffield insulation site, rang them apparently they’ve had a couple of irate people asking where their order is, its nothing to do with them and just another scam, facilitated by the wonders of google and facebook. Be aware.

    Thanks for the tip off. I had a quick look at some reviews and as usual you get the rather unhelpful full spectrum of responses from "don't touch with a barge-pole" to "excellent"!

    Often the carriage charges are huge in relation to the order, so sometimes paying a little bit more per sheet locally is better.

    The other thing to bear in mind is that local builders merchants will sometimes match the price of other quotes if you ask them.
