    Anyone have any interesting ways to store salt on site but off the blacktop. I have several small sites and some have decided to let me keep salt on site with my skid. The problem is the sites are small so parking is valuable i need something temporary that i can place off the blacktop in the woods area. I have an excavator so i can make a level pad but i dont know what to put on the bottom so dirt/gravel isnt in my salt.

    if your looking for something that short try a place the sells box trucks and see if they have any used ones that have they may have replaced for one reason or another, they should be cheaper than a 20 container too.
