It's a discussion and relationship with your local AS rep - some do, some don't. They each run their own franschise, so there will be a difference in price, samples yes/no etc.

Just call them and ask. they don't bite

Many of the traders on here do not do free samples.So i am not surprised tbh. Why does everyone want everything free these days?

As an end user I suppose there are a gazillion products out there all claiming to do a job.

To OP >

everyone uses different products and rates them different so in essence to some people to spend £20 or so on a product that may not tick their boxes it can be an expensive game.

However what many traders do is offer smaller qtys of a product, i.e panel pots, 500ml bottles etc etc.

Lots of reviews on DW as well, a very usefull start place for something that anyone is considering.

Or > as has been kindly offered in this thread, if you can't see anything in personal sales, someone may 'send' you a small sample of a product if you ask etc.
