Material Purchases by the Scoop, Skip, Yard or Ton ? Landscape supply yards are infamous for providing buyers with horrible rates of measurement. In nearly all cases they tell you that "their" scoop or skip is the best deal around and that they always give a little extra. Nothing could be further from the truth. Almost all rock materials in our industry are sold at the wholesale level the ton and truckers charge by the ton to haul the rock, and none of it is cheap. No one is just giving quality rock away. When buying your materials you should know if you are being billed by the ton or the bucket load. If by the bucket on the loader, what is size it is it 1/2, full yard or another size? Purchasing by ton, the truck hauling it should be weighed before loading and after it is loaded. Almost any quarry that sells quality rock with a good reputation has a certified scale for weighing large truck loads of rock material. Each "scale house" or "weigh master" issues a weight ticket for the truck passing over the scale. Purchasing by the scoop, then visually inspect each scoop to make sure it is a complete full scoop of material. When you pay for materials by ton you know exactly what you are getting. We strongly urge buyer's to request a scale receipt for their orders and not the word of the tractor operator that he put 4 or 5 skips, scoops or yards in the truck.
