You might be wondering if it is really worthwhile buying online as there is the freight to consider. But don't forget that your bricks and mortar stores also have to pay freight on the parts they get - and they then pass that cost on to you, as well as their other overheads.

And often they will give you free freight if the cost of your purchase is over a certain amount.
