Delivery of Landscaping Materials
Sand Co. can handle any of your delivery needs. With a large fleet of
new and well-maintained trucks, we can bring any of our products to your
house or jobsite. We look forward to delivering your order, but we ask
you to keep some things in mind when placing your order.
The nature of our business prevents us from being tied to an exact delivery
time. Our delivery times are approximate, and may vary as much as an hour
early or late.
Dumping on Public Streets
It is against the law to dump materials on public streets. Make sure you
discuss the dump location when ordering.
Release of Liability
Drivers will not back across concrete drives, sidewalks, etc., or proceed
onto the property until the invoice (release form) is signed. The customer
is financially responsible for any property damage.
We can sometimes do tailgate spreading in driveways or any areas that
are hard, level, and relatively flat. We do not guarantee we can tailgate
spread any area. The decision is left totally up to the driver that takes
the load. (Tailgate spreading is a method of dumping materials while the
truck is moving forward to cover a large area rather than dumping the
entire load in one spot.)
With this truck we can load up to 5 tons each of two different materials excluding any materials over 2”- 4” in size.
We can combine unlike materials, such as 4 tons of rock with 10 railroad ties or timbers. Any products, such as spikes, rebar, landscape fabric or polymer crystals, can be sent with your delivery.
