I ditched CEF a long time ago, too damn pushy, phoning me every day and wanting to visit me all the time, plus as you say way too pricey sometimes. Denmans mainly, Electric Center sometimes and 2 small town wholesalers.

I find Electrifix quite expensive, or did last time I looked, but I don;t use CEF!

Screwfix do by default show you prices incl. VAT, but you can change that to excl. VAT default and also get an excl. VAT catalogue. I tend to knock up spreadsheets for comparing a few items from here and there so it's easy enough either way when there's a few items.

Some of the prices aren't bad, however some are the same or even more than regular screwfix if its on offer in screwfix. I used them for a bit but found it was a pain only being able to get stuff delivered as wanted to be able to go pick it up due to someone having to be available to receive order. I did say on phone about making stuff available to pick up from local screwfix shop after ordering and paying through electricfix, they told me this is already being done with plumbfix but not for us but they may look into it if enough people ask.

i have been using electifix a lot recently.... mind you our nearest wholesaler was CEF so some things are about 60% cheaper with elecricfix.

how is everyone else finding them?

Just remember to add the VAT, the prices shown unlike Screwfix are not VAT inclusive. When you add it on the prices are not that much less although I think items such as consumer units are quite a bit lower than Screwfix.
