    Too much messing around unless your going to be storing more than 25 tons. We just use a sea storage container, it holds about 23-25 tons and is weather tight and lockable. Ours was about 65/month to rent.

    We try not to store rock onsite anymore. Ever since liquid "came out," We have been storing that onsite.
    Rock it too hard to store unless you use a sea container. (semi trailer minus the wheels) Even then its hard because you have to load that too!

    Liquid is easy because it NEVER freezes, you just drop the tank(s) off and just have the truck Go there to fill it/ them.

    My buddies were all like "that will never work", You're going to get robbed etc. Tried it and it works well!
    We keep a hose in the truck then also take the handle that opens and closes the tanks. And do our best to "hide" the tanks. As long as you dont let EVERYONE know where it is you will be fine!
    We never use any tanks bigger than 2500 gallons though. Bigger than that get hard to move and become obvious due to height!
