Well delivery does add a lot to cost and they are in a business to make money.

So do you want decent sod or lower priced delivery?

Personally, I'd rather have the good sod which makes a customer happy.

Just for grins, what was the price difference for delivery?

That a pallet must me? If I had to run to stockbridge with a truck and trailer pick something up and drop it off you can bet I'd be billing them for $60 a hour x 4hrs.
