Bulk Rock Salt: Is It Useful To Buy?
There are so many things people buy in bulk these days – toilet paper, paper towels, pet food, laundry detergent. With that in mind, why not buy rock salt in bulk? Winter can hit hard and there are many days where sidewalk, driveway, and stairs can be too slippery to traverse without salting them. If you don’t have rock salt on hand when that first winter blast comes through or don’t have enough left for a late winter storm, you could be facing treacherous conditions at your home or office. Buying your rock salt in bulk still might seem a little overkill but maybe not when you consider these reasons.
Bulk Money Savings
A big reason people buy anything in bulk is cost savings. The same applies to rock salt. Depending on the company and material you work with, if you buy rock salt by the pallet you end up saving at least a couple of dollars per bag. If you consider the amount of rock salt you would normally buy in a year, those few dollars a bag can add up to a reasonable amount of savings.
Avoid the Winter Weather
The kind of weather that makes rock salt a necessary item is also the kind of weather most don’t want to get out in. Cold temperatures with sleet and snow doesn’t make a trip to the store sound very exciting. However, many people end up trudging through the cold and wet weather when they have run out of salt or during an unexpected storm. Buying the rock salt you will need in bulk at the beginning of the season will save you these last minute trips to the store. You can stay nice and warm at home while everyone else goes out to buy more salt!
Avoid Crowds and Shortages
When that first winter storm comes rolling through the stores are suddenly packed with people stocking up on deicing products. If it’s predicted to be a particularly bad storm and people panic, they start buying up rock salt in mass quantities, causing some stores to run out of stock temporarily. If this happens, you are left going store to store all over town trying to find any retailer that has a bag left. By buying your salt in bulk before that first storm even pops onto the radar, you avoid dealing with crowds and lines, as well as any issues with local retail shortages!
