    Default Where to buy electrical supplies - Cape Town

    Hello all-

    I'm beginning to do some various wiring projects to my 2000 Td5 and am wondering where, in person, I can buy supplies (relays, wiring, general electrics, etc.) for something like this. I know of a few places online, for example, 4x4direct.co.za. But looking for some place I can visit in person.

    Thanks

    You can always visit the 4x4 direct store in Brackenfell,

    Cable - for Dual Battery I bought From Power Cable Supplies in Montague Gardens. At the time is was way cheaper than other places I searched.

    4x4 direct's prices are decent for odds, small qty, home and diy jobs.

    You can also try The 4x4 store for online sales. Service also very good.

    Try Communica (I think their new premises are in Paarden Eiland). Also Sustainable.co.za has a lot of useful electrical stuff. Online, but you can pick up too at their premises in Westlake.

    Good stuff. I've actually been looking for a few stores like these. And I also did not know that 4x4 Direct had a physical location.

    Thanks everyone,

    Beware, walking into 4x4direct often leads to you buying much more stuff than you originally planned on
