      Have you thought about calling the supplier for a 50 yard delivery. And just cut out the middle man

        I had one last year, 120 yards of mulch. The local supplier was at 22.50 per yards with an extra 100 delivery charge. I looked around and found the plant that the mulch comes from, called them and got the 120 yards for 10 a yard, 50 delivery charge. Had to pay the driver before he dumped (ouch) but what the heck, job was done in two days, at 75 per yard, so I made my money

            Wow....now that is a nice profit. According to my Math, sounds like a profit over $7,000 for your crew over two days. Very nice.

              The mulch supplier I go to manufactures the mulch I.E dyes itand process it. I don't think I can get it any cheaper than 28. I'd love to find good mulch for 10 a cubic yard. Any one no a place in the delco area in pa with prices like that?

                  Have you done a quick google search to see if any suppliers pop up in your area that you were unaware of?

                    i finished the job in 2 days. this just a quick figure we move 10 yards in 3 hours with three people. did have some problems with a worker but that happens. and the job landed me another decent size mulching job.

                      Find a place near you that sells mulch to the public. Get a price. If their retail price is around $30 I promise you they are getting it for less than $20.

                      $29 isn't the best price you can find but just because you can find mulch at $10 a yard doesn't mean its a good deal. I ordered 28 yds for a job, pay before they dump. Got it for 16 a yard and I wrote a check on delivery the black mulch had all kinds of brown in it. It looked like ****. Honestly.

                      I called the company and they were already aware of the issue and told me I could have it for $11 a yard and I declined and asked them to come pick it up off the job site. They said I could have it for free if they didn't have to come get it. I still declined.

                      They had to come pick it all up and clean it up because during their screw up I got another load from a different company brought in.

                      Price doesn't out weigh quality in my mind. I ended up paying 17.50 per yard delivered. Not bad but the whole ordeal was a head ache.
