    Does anyone in or near Grand Rapids MI sell bulk salt by the load? I found one place in Hudsonville that sells bulk salt, But there is a 50ton min buy to start and I would have to store it and load it my self. My company is not that big yet.

    How much do you need?? You might be hard pressed to find someone to store and load you 24/7.......

    I am not sure probably around 4 to 6 yards, But I do not have anything to store it in or a loader to load it with.

    Four to six per nite?? I know one guy in the airport area that uses just a bit but I'd start calling around to other landscapers to see if you could buy from them. But if you used 5 per nite you'd probably pay about 3 to 4 thou premium over the year - maybe think about putting that money towards storage and loading capibilities.....

    Did you price subbing it out??

    If 4 to 6 per year, just buy bagged, save the aggravation.
