    You make a pole when you make the post. Most of us bring it ourselves.

    i use to pick it all up for my jobs but not anymore to much wear and tear on the trailer/truck and just all around a big waste of time and time is money so no thanks. unless its only a couple yards i will pick it up but anything over 3yds ill get it delivered

    Anything seven yards and under, I use my 10K trailer. Over seven yards, I have them bring me at least ten since that gives me free delivery.:)

    How many of you dump it out of your own truck and how many fill wheel barrows from the back of the truck?

    We use dumptrucks

    Most of the landscapers i deal with at the garden center use trucks or trailers... very few have it delivered... between landscapers and homeowners we go through about 80 - 90 truck loads a year which is about 10,000 yards

    I dont have the means of bringing my own mulch to jobsites so I just get it delivered. I can call the store and have it delivered within an hour on most days and they charge like $20 for up to 12 yards delivered. This just gets added to the bill and I dont have to worry about having a trailer or picking anything up. Get about 100 yards a year delivered this way so not too much compared to some guys on here but it works out nicely
