From Sydney I have found a couple of minor hitches with Vanbar.
The raw chemistry guy (Mario?) is part time so you may have to wait a couple of days -- of course if you fancy alternative techniques you are patient by definition!
Some volatile fluids cannot be shipped to -- in my case -- Sydney, even interbranch to the Sydney showroom, acids being notable here. It does sometimes help to explain that citric acid and similar are pretty benign, but it's hard to talk them into shipping glacial acetic acid, and probably rightly so.
Otherwise Vanbar service is great, as always.
