We can arrange delivery for any of our products! We are located in Delaware County, but we deliver all over the Central Ohio area and beyond including the following counties: Franklin, Licking, Union, Marion, Morrow, Knox and Madison. We sub-contract our deliveries through a few local trucking companies, depending on the size of the load. There is no mark-up on the delivery costs, we charge only what the trucking companies charge.
We have a few small trucks operated by BKM Construction, Krueger & Co., TSC Hauling, and Hamel's Hauling. The maximum load for on the small trucks is 5 cubic yards for mulch, compost or soil, and 4 tons for stone or sand. Delivery charges for the small dump trucks start at $45.00 within Zone 1, $70.00 for Zone 2, and $100.00 for Zone 3. Hamel's Hauling is who we work with for bag deliveries. Hamel's can haul up to 75 bags at a time, and the delivery total will depend on the number of bags ordered. Please note that we cannot schedule requests for certain times of day on any of the trucks or deliveries. Deliveries may be sent out as early as 7:00 AM in the morning or as late as 5:15 PM in the afternoon. If you need an AM delivery, it's best that you schedule it for the day prior.
The next size truck is a medium single axle dump truck operated by either BKM Construction or TSC Hauling. The medium trucks can hold up to 10 cubic yards of mulch or compost and up to 8 cubic yards of soil. It has a maximum of 7 ton for stone or sand. Delivery charges for this truck start at $60.00 for "Zone 1," $80.00 for "Zone 2," and $110.00 for "Zone 3." Currently, we use 9 mile radii zones from our address to determine mileage rates. For example, Zone 1 is within 9 miles of our site, Zone 2 is 9 - 18 miles from our site, and Zone 3 is 18 - 28 miles from our site. Deliveries require payment via credit card at the time of placing the order. If you would like to pay with cash or check, you will need to drop off payment to our office prior to the delivery being sent.
Multi-axle dump trucks and a slinger through Testa Trucking Inc. are available for large loads in a commercial setting. If you are a residential customer, it is best to use one of the smaller trucks for delivery and not the 6 axle. The 6 axle dump can hold up to 24 yards of soil, 25 yards compost, or 27 yards of mulch. The slinger can hold up to 17 yards of soil. Delivery charges for a 6 axle dump start at $75.00 and the slinger starts at $160.00 These trucks typically are scheduled for weekdays only, with the slinger requiring an additional 2-3 days notice to reserve. The 6 axle truck and the slinger are both extremely heavy when fully loaded, and are not suited to residential work. They are not allowed to drive onto a residential concrete or asphalt driveway. You will be asked to sign a waiver releasing all liability if you do request these trucks come onto your concrete or asphalt drive. Price Farms Organics and Testa Trucking are not responsible for any damage if delivery is to be made beyond the street curb. Even the smaller two trucks, fully loaded, are capable of cracking concrete driveways. If you are concerned about your driveway, we recommend the truck stay on the street and dump onto the apron of your driveway from the road.
It is possible to split a load with a next-door neighbor. Keep in mind that it will not be an exact split as the loads come off of the trucks in a rush. Shared loads would need to be with a neighbor close enough that you don't mind wheel-barrowing from as one of you will likely have more product in your driveway than the other.
The trucks cannot drive across yards or fields. Please do not ask the drivers to drive through a yard or field to dump the load into your garden. Please feel free to arrange your own trucking / hauling if you want to attempt to have the load dropped somewhere other than your driveway. The trucks are very heavy and will get stuck far more easily than imagined. They need to remain on some type of paved or graveled surface. Loads also need to be dropped in one dump, as opposed to being "tailgated." Also, it is not possible to have 2 separate products delivered on the same load without them getting mixed together. If there is a certain part of the driveway where you would like the load dumped, please place a tarp there. Otherwise the load will be dropped in a spot most accessible for the driver of the truck. Price Farms Organics, Testa Trucking, BKM Construction, TSC Hauling, Hamel's Hauling, and Krueger & Co are not responsible for any damage to drives or walks.
