Default Do you buy your wire online? (Why?)

Just curious if you prefer to buy your wire online (vs. a local supply house)? Not something I've done myself yet. Just wondered what your experience was like. Is it a timesaver? Money saver? Do you ship direct to the jobsite? Does it free up the runner for other errands? Good way to save space on the truck?

Who do you like ordering from? Speedy turnaround?

Thought you might have an opinion. I welcome all feedback! Thanks, bud!

I have only purchased cable like HDMI, cat6 patch cords and high temp wire. Otherwise, my suppliers and home centers have what I need when I need it.
