FAQs

How do I order more than one truckload (12 Cubic Yards)?

Example: Desired total material quantity = 32 Cubic Yards. Add the following to your cart:

  • Material Qty: Dump Truck - 12CY, Number of Truck Loads = 2. (24 CY accounted for)
  • Material Qty: Dump Truck - 8CY, Number of Truck Loads = 1. (Remaining 8 CY accounted for)

This will ensure the minimum number of trucks needed (and lowest shipping cost) for your order.

Driveways 

Recommended construction includes at least 8" of base material (Pit Run) and 4" of road surface material (3/4" Road Mix). Compaction of both layers is required, typically done with a compaction roller. Addition of Calcium Chloride or Magnesium Chloride products can provide increased water protection. 

Example calculation for road 12 feet wide and "X" feet long

  • (12 ft width * 0.66 ft depth * X ft length) ÷ 27 = Required Pit Run for base (In Cubic Yards)
  • (12 ft width * 0.33 ft depth * X ft length) ÷ 27 = Required Road Mix for surface (In Cubic Yards)

 

Other Areas (Landscaping, Arenas, Etc) 

To find required volume - (Square footage of area in feet) * (Depth desired in feet) ÷ 27  = Required volume of material in Cubic Yards

Will you spread the material for me? What is Dump In Motion?

Premier can provide Dump In Motion service, provided the dump site is level and accessible. Dump In Motion entails dumping material along a path, usually about 8-9 feet wide. The truck/trailer must have ample room to maneuver, back up, and dump, as well as adequate "runway" to spread the material. Somebody also must be on site to direct the driver, or detailed directions must be listed in the order notes.

A yard of material typically takes between 30-45 minutes for 2 people to spread with a wheel barrow and shovels. Consider that a full 12 CY dump truck load could take a pair of workers 6-9 hours of hard manual labor to spread! If you're not planning on renting heavy equipment like a skid loader or tractor, consider that Dump In Motion can drastically reduce your spreading time.

Any spreading will cost $50/load. Dump In Motion is not guaranteed and up to the discretion of the driver. If a driver feels a site is not unsuitable for Dump In Motion, the fee will be refunded sans a 3% processing fee.

 

Do you have any materials that are not listed on the website?

Yes! For inquires regarding Decomposed Granite, Recycled Asphalt, Boulders, or other materials not listed, please call Sales at 208-901-8189 Extension 1.
