GRAVEL PRICES

Postby elgato » Tue Dec 27, 2011 9:04 am

My wife is out getting prices for different types of gravel i.e. cement mix, blue stone, etc. What are recent prices so I can make some comparisons? Also, what is the approximate measure (m3) per ton? Thanks for the input.

Had a "sample" load of blue stone delivered for 358bt per ton. BIL was angry and found another guy that quoted 270 per ton.

With the amount of quarries in that area I would expect you can get a good price, try and buy direct is always the cheapest option, in Pattaya I paid 3500 baht for a 10 wheeler I guess it is somewhere between 6 and 10 tons for the small granite chips in my drive.

I agree about the quarries in my area. There's a lot of them. 10 wheeler that delivered last night was approximately 12 tons, the police are taking "fines" for anything over that weight. I'm supposed to meet with some drivers today that are hauling sugarcane to the refinery and returning empty to my village as they're wanting to make some cash on an otherwise unpaid return trip. I'll post some prices as soon as I get more info.

Blue stone (gravel) price increase for the new year means a typical 30ton load has gone up by 10bt per ton. New price 290bt per ton. So far I have received 100 tons.
