Default cost of fiberglass recommendations

I seem to be going through fiberglass like its going out of fashion at the mo. I don't have any good suppliers local so everything is plus post witch is a bummer especially now when it can be a few weeks before it arrives.
so who have you found or would recommend that's cheaper.
I use cfsnet mainly not found any ware cheaper post is a bit steep.main things I use a lot of are
Coremat 2mm Thick 100cm wide is 3.88 a mt
33kg Roll 300g Chopped Strand Mat (110m) is 62
Low Cost Polyester Resin 20kg is 48 all plus vat and post

That's a lot less than I have to pay on this side of the pond.
That is without postage (local supplier) and no VAT here.

I'd prefer to use local, but all their goods seem to be about 80% increase over East Coast prices, so for me the carriage is a small cost to make big savings.
I used Glasplies many years ago (great service, lowest price I could find) and the owners since and the prices went up.
East Coast for me - very good service and quick (even with a covid-era small order)
