Should I buy a Winch online or locally?

I never buy things off the net because even if they honour the warranty I'll have to pay to send it back and find the time to do it, but some of the prices I find have got me thinking. I have gotten mixed reports about the 4wdsupercentre, any thoughts about them and their winches?

I have done both. Both times no problem. My current winch was bought second hand. No problem either.

Sorry, I forgot to add that some were Chinese cheapies and my second hand one is a quality brand thing

Not one gave me any trouble. I left them on the car when I sold the car.
