    Just remember Macka just because it's ebay doesn't neccassarily mean it's second hand, all I buy are brand new from companies selling on eBay and all come with the normal warranty,

    Use the ask a question option to check this before buying and keep the reply incase the warranty doesn`t arrive. Not everything you get on fleabay is as described.

    As said where ever the best deal is,
    I normally use Screwfix or tools station as I know I can just go in and pick it up that day or next day and it's easy if anything missing or broken/brakes

    Been buying on eBay for years but try to stay away from people as I tend to buy off companies who simply use eBay as a selling point, I've had some great deals , some companies I'm a regular too, like folkstonne fixings and transtools, if anything goes wrong ebay WILL always pay u and honour your buy, had couple of dealings with pure fannys and ebay always paid me back,
