    Looking to get together to leverage some salt purchases. Have a large bagging plant that is local. Anyone interested in getting in on a deal if I can get one. What is the best price that you are getting in this region so I have some ammo for negotiating price. Feel free to e-mail me at gold4@comcast.net

    Thanks,

    Joe

    I am very interested. I tried at a plant in Marcus Hook a while back but they blew me off and I had to go to Moyer and Sons an hour a way top get the best deal.

    How much and what type are you looking to buy? You said you tried a bagging plant, was that Magco?

    You want to buy bagged material, or bulk?

    Magco, oceanport and refined are all local, Oceanport sells bulk, they're the main supplier to DELDOT, and have the best bulk pricing. They won't sell to you unless you have an account, if not you need to go through a registered buyer. Many trucking companies have accounts with them. Magco sells bagged material, I have used them in the past for their supersacks, 2500lbs bags. You can chose your poison, road salt, #1 or #2. More expensive but you're buying dry weight which isn't always the case with bulk salt out of OP.

    You should be locked in by this time to get the best price out of OP, and you have to buy the full load.

    PM me let me know what your looking for maybe I can help.

    What are you looking to buy, like the previous post said. Let me know what you need and I will get you pricing. I can get you bulk out of OP. We are right next door to them and they treat their neighbors good! E-mail me direct as I don't check this site often.

    Joe,

    When is your PM going to start working? I am really only looking to buy 2 pallets of rock salt, that is all I have room to store. I got a local price yesterday that was 3.75/bag. I am very upset with the dealer I was using as he let me down twice so far this year with pricing he promised and a delivery that never occurred.

    Let me know Joe.

    Thanks,
    Dan

If you buy per skid I can sell for $3.35 per bag. If you are buying multiple skids I can do it for between $3.15 and $3.25. If you only want a few bags The price will be $3.99 P/B. These are picked up prices per my location in Malvern, Pa.
