Why You Should Choose Bulk Over Bagged

Why You Should Choose Bulk Over Bagged - Soil Kings - Bulk Landscape Supplies Calgary

When it comes to having your soil delivered, there are two options: bulk or bagged. In general, if you choose bulk products, you’ll pay for your soil, mulch, and aggregates separately from the delivery cost. If you choose bagged, the Bag Guys “include” the cost of delivery in the cost of each bag. The problem with the Bag Guys way is it just doesn’t add up.

 

When the cost of delivery is “included,” i.e. it’s a hidden component of each bag’s cost, it’s unfair to you. You’re being charged a delivery fee on every bag of soil, instead of on every trip to your house.

 

The problem with that is, whether you order 2 bags of soil or 10, the Bag Guys only need to drive to your house once. So why are they charging you the same delivery fee that they would charge someone who needed 1 bag of soil delivered 10 times over the summer?

 

At first glance, the “included” cost of delivery offered by the Bag Guys is very tempting, but if you do the math — and we have, you’ll find that our flat delivery fee very quickly saves you a lot of money. Let’s look at an example:

 

You need two cubic yards of top quality garden soil mix. You can either purchase KINGS Premium garden mix for $50 per cubic yard + a $110 flat delivery fee or you can purchase a garden mix from the Bag Guys for $149 per bag and no added delivery fee. At first glance, you may think the Bag Guys are offering the better deal, but what if you actually do the math?

 

2 cubic yards x $50 per cubic yard = $100.

$100 for 2 cubic yard of KINGS Premium garden mix + $110 flat delivery fee = $210 total.

 

2 x $149 bagged garden mix = $298 total.

 

You’ve just saved $88.00 by buying bulk.

 

These savings rise steeply the more product your order. Let’s run our example again, but this time you need 12 cubic yards of garden mix.

 

12 cubic yards x $50 per cubic yard = $600.

$600 for 12 cubic yard of KINGS Premium garden mix + $110 flat delivery fee = $710 total.

 

12 x $149 bagged garden mix = $1788 total.

 

You’ve just saved $1078.00 by buying bulk!

 

When you buy bulk, you save money. That’s because Soil Kings charges our delivery fee the fair way — as a flat charge separate from your order. If we only have to drive to your house once, you only get charged one delivery fee, and that’s the way it should be.
