1 ton = 2,000 pounds
1 cubic yard = 27 cubic feet
1. How do you buy stone?
We sell stone by the weight. Gravels, sands, etc., are sold by the cubic yard.
2. Do I have to buy a whole ton or entire pallet of rocks?
No. You can buy whatever quantity, large or small. If you only need 2 rocks – not a problem.
3. How much rock is on a pallet?
It varies. Usually a full pallet is anywhere from 1.5 tons to 2 tons.
4. How much money is a pallet?
That depends on the type of rock. We have stone from all over (Oklahoma, Arizona, Colorado…) so the prices usually depend on the freight charge.
5. How will I know how much I need?
It is always a good idea to come in with measurements. Depending on the type of material you need, we can tell you the coverage and figure a rough estimate on the amount you will need.
6. Can I come with a truck and/or trailer to pick up the material myself?
Of course. We sell mulch, sand, dirt, by the pickup load. Also, people will bring whatever vehicle they have and load flagstone or different materials in the car, van, suv…. Just remember, do not come in with a van and expect us to put yards of mulch or dirt in there. It is in bulk and we scoop and dump with a tractor. That goes for pickup trucks with toppers on the back too.
7. Do you deliver?
Yes. There are 2 options available depending on your needs. We have dump trucks as well as a truck with a forklift on the back. We charge a flat rate based on the town or area your delivery will be going to. The dump truck rates are cheaper than the forklift truck.
8. How long does it take to receive the delivery once I have set it up?
Depends. Usually, give us a day and we can have it out to you. Sometimes even the same day. But also, if you have a difficult delivery, or are far away, it may be a little longer. Also, during the springtime, the delivery schedule fills up faster so you may need to take that into consideration.
9. I am trying to match a stone already at my house, do you have it?
Possibly. When trying to match an existing stone at your house, it is best to bring in a sample. There are so many factors to this. The stone you have has been weathered so nothing will match it exactly. Secondly, stone quarries pick up and move and dig in new areas frequently. So there is no telling if anything will be an exact match because it is a natural product.
10. I only need a few buckets of river rock. Can I do that?
Yes. It is helpful if you BYOB (bring your own bucket)! We have buckets available sometimes, but we often run out. We will have you go down to whatever pile of rocks you want, fill up, and then show us when you are done.
