    Looking to locate a place to buy the concrete blocks used to make an outdoor salt storage bin. We're near chicago heights, illinois. anyone got any suggestions on where to buy them?

    Be sure to check your trucking price on getting them to you also. Its starts adding up in a real hurry because most trucks will only haul about 15 blocks at a time.
    Check with your local redi-mix company's. Mafia blocks are usually just extra concrete in the truck when they get back to the yard that they spin off into forms.

    Our 8 Axle Boom trailers haul 28 Full Block per load.....We charge anywhere from $25-$45 per block depending on how many you buy.....Trucking is $250 per load delivered local....Those Block are nothing but pure profit for the company.....
