When looking for a wholesale gravel supplier, inquire about the vendor's method of gravel storage, as exposure to natural elements results in potentially damaged and discolored gravel. The supplier should allow viewing of the gravel before purchase to ensure requested color and particle size are accurate.
Wholesale gravel suppliers may offer discounted prices if certain gravel types are currently in surplus.
Check the local stone yard inventory, as loose gravel is less-expensive than bagged gravel. However, bagged gravel is easier to store and install. Certain companies charge a delivery fee and require using their delivery system. The supplier may transport the gravel, but the supplier simply dumps the gravel into one pile upon delivery. Ensure that proper transportation is available another way if the gravel company does not offer transportation itself.
