Needing 600 bales of pinestraw

    Hey guys, anyone know of anyone shipping a half-truck of pinestraw? I have tried a few contacts that I had, but the smallest load is 1000 bales. I need 500-600 for one property, but the going rate here is $4.25 and honestly I don't want to pay that.

    I used to get it delivered and installed for $4.85, but lost a large neighboring property, so now only need half that much. Delivery would be to Knoxville,TN.

    Thanks in advance!

    I have a straw yard in GA. and I can install at $5.25 per bale if you can work with that.

    Would you be willing to just deliver it if I don't pay you to install? If so, how much per bale? Does your price include clean-up and tucking? Can you do weekends?

    I would like to know how u were getting it delivered and installed for that much around here. I charge 10 a bail delivered and installed. No way i can come even close to that.

    The staw is 4.25 to 5.00 a bail around here if you buy it. The only way you can buy in bulk is if they leave a trailer and you have to pay a rental on the trailer and all that stuff. Comes out about the same as buying it from HOme depot or lowes. They are usually cheaper than the nurseries here anyways.
