Allied sells tens of thousands of items. Also an individual is hardly an
essential customer to them. They are an industrial supplier and do small
orders, likely on a break even basis at best.

In their place, I'd say NO also. They don't want to chance a semi full of
shipments compromised by $100 battery sale.
