    I did a search and came up with DMA but I know there has to be more. Just want to know if there are and who. Trying to get pricing for this upcoming season. Went to pick up fertilizer today and Lesco hasn't heard form their supplier yet, although he said around 4.25 for rock salt per bag, that sound about right??

    Thanks

    Are you looking for bulk or bagged? Also what side of town are you on? I have dealt with several places in Indy for bagged but I am going to bulk this year.

    Bagged, I have a few properties, I don't have a lot, the large ones I am subbing out more than likely.

    $90/a ton you ought to buy from us or better yet let us salt your properties.

    I dont need bulk, I have additional properties besides what we spoke about that would require salting, but not enough to enable me to buy bulk not to mention I have nowhere to put bulk material. However If I understand correctly I could buy a ton for $90?, I have a friend looking to buy some bulk I emailed you back btw...

    We buy much better then $90, if someone buying bulk at $90 or bagged might be much better off just having us salt your properties. We have salt and equipment, and you can make money and sit at home.

    All I will say is that we don't buy our salt in Indy but we use it here. We do buy much better then $90/ per ton, we store it many tons between salt bins and have it brought in continuously. We built new bin last year that holds several thousand tons. No reason to share our sources...just offering to save you money if your buying at $90/per ton I'm confident we could salt your properties for less and you can make money while you sleep...just an offer.

    Sleeping dosen't sound like fun! but thanks for the salting offer ill figure it out one way or another as far as bulk price goes ive got quit a few leads but 3.80 plus tax a bag is cheepest ive seen if your just buying several skids Remember cheeper isn't always better the supplier taking care of you goes along ways with me there is plenty of pie for all of us!

    Call me sometime on the others. I emailed you how to take care of them and if you can't do that way I wouldn't do it at all you won't make them happy.

    Are you dealing with Jeremy at the 86th st. store? We stopped using bagged rocksalt about 3 years ago. Last year we bought a pallet for our tailgate spreader from him in a pinch and we were getting about 4.25 a bag... used to be able to get it for about 2.50 a couple years ago before the "salt shortage"
