    Just curious what guys are charging to spread bulk salt around kc? I think I'm on the cheap side at $95 per ton with a $50 min. I am planning on raising my price next year.

    Ice-melt rates

    I don't use any other product except salt in lots.Ice-melt we do use on commercial side walks.The rate for that is 2.5 X the cost.If you need any help give a shout.

    Thanks for the reply's. I definitely need to bump my price up next year. I was thinking maybe raise the price 5 to 10 dollars a year for a few years instead of trying to raise it a whole bunch in one year, afraid I might lose some customers if I did that. What do you guys think. What are you guys paying for your salt? I paid $35 per ton delivered this year.
