Wesbell has a very large inventory of electrical wire for small orders that are received via the website. Bulk wire orders are handled different due to extra freight charges which end up in the end users hands. Bulk wire is sold per order with free shipping and shipped directly to you from the manufacturer.
South Wire has over 5 stocking locations throughout the USA in which they can ship from for the quickest delivery times. It's a long process to become a distributor for such a large reputable company. They also require a certain amount of inventory and growth in order to maintain status as a distributor.
