    Anyone ever bought a tractor trailer load of salt on pallets the 50lb bag types. If so where and any idea how much? Thanks.

    What part of Maryland are you trying to buy salt in? I bought a pallet the other day (49 bags, 50 lbs. each) for $260.00 in Southern Maryland

    I got it from Lesco (John Deere Landscapes) in Waldorf, MD. The price goes down the more pallets you get. I think it worked out to be around 5 bucks a bag

    You can also get salt at the stone store by bwi bought a few pallets there the other day for 250 per pallet but gotta have account simple to sign up. as far as tractor trailer load buddy of mine got one, ended up being between 180-200 per pallet

    I would call the manufacturer of your preferred product and ask them. They may even sell to you directly.

    We get ours in Baltimore at International Salt. It was like 180$ a pallet (49 bags) with a min. of 4 pallets. It's right off of 95 at the harbor tunnel.

    Right we're trying to get them to sell to us directly, and take out the middle man. Just don't know if we buy enough for this to happen.
