With record-high levels of inflation, it can often feel that everything is more expensive these days! We are all looking for ways to make our budgets stretch farther, perhaps even when it comes to purchasing landscaping materials! Here at Greely Sand & Gravel, we are committed to providing top quality products with convenience and value for our customers. One of the ways we help you save money on your landscaping is by offering split load delivery to customers ordering more than one product at a time to a single location. Read on to find out more about this helpful, convenient, and cost-effective service!
How Split Load Deliveries work
Most of our delivery trucks are equipped with a middle gate to allow for two products to be carried on the same truck, without being mixed together. This means that customers who require two products for a project can have them delivered at the same time, on the same truck. For example, if you are working on a new flowerbed, you may want to order Greely’s Topdressing Soil for the base of the flowerbed, and then one of our many varieties of mulch to add visual appeal and weed protection to the finished flowerbed. On a split load truck, both these products could be delivered to your property on the same day and at the same time. The best part? You will save on the delivery cost on the second product, as opposed to having them delivered separately!
Split loads deliveries can be accommodated in all three of our truck sizes. Once you have used our handy Cubic Yard Calculator on our online store product pages, you will know how much of each product you need for your project. Use the table below to figure out if a split load delivery would be the best option for you.

When ordering a split load delivery, you can be confident that the products are kept completely separate during transport and our drivers ensure that the truck beds are checked and cleaned between deliveries to minimize mixture of products. Once the truck arrives at your home, our skilled drivers will dump the product on the back first, and then pull the truck forward to dump the second product, creating two separate piles. Depending on the size and shape of your property, our drivers may be able to deliver the two different products to different areas if required for your project. Whatever the situation, our team members are committed to working with you to place your products where you need them whenever possible. Interested in placing a split load order?
