Cinder block purchasing notes part 2

cube of 6 inch cinder blocks in the back of a truck

Our local cinder block factory is only 8 miles away, which is an important detail I left out of yesterday's post on saving money when buying rejected cinder blocks.

Another big advantage to getting blocks directly from the source is the ability to have them forklifted into the back of your truck. It just takes a few seconds to slide off the tailgate, which allows the forklift guy to push the cube back towards the wheel base.
