    Looking for anyone who is interested in getting together and splitting a trailer load or two. I have not gotten pricing as of yet but last year was $3.30 a bag direct for the trailer load. You pay what we pay.

    Sorry, have been away for a while. Our email is thegardenlife@embarqmail.com and our number is 908-534-6400. I will get a price as soon as I get a chance. Last years quote for Halite 50lbs was 3.23 per bag. Of course it will go up as does everything else....

    I might be able to help you out on 4 to 6 pallets,

    Let me make a few phone calls and I'll get back to you.

    If I can still add some pallets, can you come pick them up in New Windsor, NY?

    Mike,
    First post you wanted 6 pallets...
    Next post 2-4 pallets...
    Then you told me on the phone 2 pallets and then you wanted me to hold one (and that depended on the price, which you already knew.) Some how that does not seem like splitting a load.

    You called my office on 11/6 and left message that you were still interested and I apologize for not getting back, but we still do not have all our commercial contracts back as of 11/18. You then called last week. Putting two and two together I recognized your number from my cell phone. In looking back in my history I did see that you called a ridculous number of times...but you NEVER left a message on my cell phone. I get 40-60 calls a day and I never answer numbers I don't know because I would never get anything done ( I actually work alongside my employees). Contrary to most businesses we are having very busy year (will be our second most dollar volume) and had to hire two more employees to keep up and we will not get everything done before year end.

    Regardless we never filled the order, we our going to buy through Lesco until all our commercial contracts are finalized.

    Again, I apologize for the lack of communication.

    Yea I did call you a ridiculous number of times because I called and left several messages (probably 3 on your cell and 3 on the business line). Then I just got sick and tired of leaving messages that were not being returned. So I was simply calling after that and leaving no messages and yes there was a lack of communication. You didnt respond for an entire MONTH. I really dont appreciate you letting me hang out there like that. I was just concerned because I only have a pallet of salt left. I was in a bit of a panic. Yes I realize I changed how many pallets that I wanted but thats because things come up like a new transfer case. So right now I need 3 pallets.

    This worked out Great!! JeepPlow18 came over today to pick up his 3 pallets of salt, I got a better price and quick delivery and so did JeepPlow18 (he just paid my cost). We can do this with a couple more guys next year and maybe get an even better price...

    Thanks Mike! it was good to meet you today!:salute:
