What does a ton of rocks look like?
Palletized – is about 1/2 a pallet or 1 1/2 feet high.
Bulk Material – is a pile about 3 x 3 x 2 cone shaped
How heavy is a one man stone? Also a half man, three man and four man?
Sometimes rock is referred to as a one-man rock, or two-man rock. Stone is measured by how many men it would take to muscle it into position by using an eight-foot bar or lever. Because men come in different sizes and strengths, a one-man rock can be anywhere between a small rock and a rock weighing up to three hundred pounds; a two man rock can weigh upwards of nine hundred pounds.
Are each one of your pallets a ton?
No – actual weights vary, most full pallets weigh between 1 1/2 – 2 tons.
Can we pick out the rocks we want?
Yes
Can we have small samples of stone?
Small color chips are available, we encourage you to take. Large sample quantities are available at a nominal cost.
What is difference between Basalt and Granite?
Geological terms which refer to how the stone was formed. For our purpose it serves as a reference to the shape, color, and texture. Both are solid stones.

Delivery and Loading

Yes
What is the delivery cost?

If I need help loading into my car, can someone help me?
We have machines that will load into open vehicles such as a pick-up without a canopy.  If you have a closed vehicle such as a station wagon or a van we are limited to the amount of help we can give you. In those cases you will need to choose stone in a size you can handle.
