What Are the Sod Delivery Costs for Houston Grass?
Call 281-431-7441 for more information. We’re often asked about our sod delivery costs because the price of fuel can obviously be a factor in the cost of delivering your grass sod to your project site in the Houston area.
Here’s Houston Grass Owner Michael Romine explaining the sod delivery costs.
This is a summary of Michael’s explanation of sod delivery costs:
One of the questions we get asked frequently is, “Where will you deliver sod, or do you have a minimum quantity that you will deliver sod to me area?” The answer is: yes and no. We will deliver truck loads of grass, which is currently sixteen pallets of grass, anywhere in Texas.
It’s all based on the number miles from our place of business, which is here in Arcola, which is close to Missouri City and we base it all on mileage from point A to point B. We also base it on the number of pallets that you need. So, once we get north of say, Interstate 10, the quantity of grass that we can go there for, we become very non-competitive with some of our competition when we start talking places like Spring, Cypress and Humble. Say, north of I-10, once we’re talking about smaller quantities of grass.
South of I-10, we were always super competitive with our deliveries, until we get far our east, say Deer Park, Pasadena and places like that. If someone is looking for one or two pallets to be installed, we do have an install guy that can haul up to two pallets on his trailer and he can go some of those little bit further places, but there again, he has to be compensated for his time and gas money as well.
But, when someone calls us and asks, “How much is the grass?” and “How much is the delivery?”. Grass is always based on the number of pallets that you need and we tell them that delivery is based on the number pallets that you need and the number of miles it is from our office.
We use a formula based on miles, tolls and things of that nature to decide how much the delivery of going to be to an area. So, we will never say “No, we will not go to an area.” but the deliveries of the smaller quantities of grass get pretty expensive pretty fast when they get say, twenty to twenty five miles away from our location here in Arcola.
We believe we sell the best grass sod in Houston because it’s grown on our family farm in Bay City, TX. We’ve been focused on quality grass farming there for more than 30 years and that’s reflected in our products.
