Loose Bulk Rock Salt: Pickup in NJ and Bulk Delivery in NJ, NY, NYC, Eastern PA & Southern CT

Loose bulk rock salt is a staple for surviving winters in NJ and its surrounding areas. Rock salt has been used for centuries as a means of lowering the freezing point of water, and thus melting snow and ice while preventing new formations.

Loose rock salt in bulk quantities works to simplify the process of keeping roadways and properties safe throughout the long winter months. The loose salt can be accessed easily and distributed evenly across the surface of paved areas in order to reduce or even eliminate the risk of slip-and-fall accidents. Because it’s so useful, and because the cold season can drag on for so long, loose rock salt is often purchased in bulk quantities. This ensures that enough rock salt can be utilized in order to be efficient and effective.

Loose bulk rock salt continues to be one of the most popular methods for getting rid of snow and ice throughout NJ and the northeast because it has proven itself to be extremely reliable while also being incredibly affordable. Loose bulk rock salt is competitively priced and, when used properly, gives you a great deal of bang for your buck. Loose rock salt is safe for use on most paved surfaces – even in areas where children or animals are present.

Rock Salt Delivery Considerations

In order to get the most out of your loose bulk rock salt purchase and delivery, it’s important that you understand how to order the correct quantities, as well as any special considerations for delivery and storage.

Buying loose bulk rock salt can seem confusing, but it’s actually quite simple to determine how much you need to buy in order to get you through the winter.

As a general rule of thumb, you can expect to require one ton of loose rock salt per 64,000 square feet of area. This means that if you have a large commercial parking lot measuring 500 feet by 500 feet (250,000 square feet), you will need approximately 4 tons (250,000/64,000) in order to effectively melt the snow and ice on your property.

Knowing how much rock salt you’ll require will help you to arrange bulk delivery services in a way the works best for your demands.

In addition to knowing how much to order, it’s also important to consider the location of your drop-off site. Make sure that your bulk delivery service provider is able to work within your coverage area, and that they will have enough room to maneuver their trucks and safely unload your bulk order of loose rock salt.

Finally, make sure that the delivery site is located in close proximity to your storage facility. A bulk loose rock salt storage facility should be dry and never exposed to moisture and should protect the rock salt from coming into contact with conditions below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Typically, it’s best to store loose rock salt in a sealed container that is off the ground and if left outside, the rock salt should be covered with a tarp.
