Insulation in bulk?


Do you know If I can purchase insulation batts and rolls in bulk and have them delivered to my home?

Should I contact local building material suppliers?

I'd rather not purchase insulation from homedepot and load the materials myself.

Thanks

Hand,

HD and Lowe's deliver. You can purchase it and get it delivered from H.D. with a delivery fee. Go to the contractor's services desk and talk to them. If you were in my area I could get you a discount and also get the delivery fee waived.

(Also, any building materials supplier delivers)

Here in Toronto they would charge you around $60 for delivery. Or you can rent their full size van for a half day for $20

Why rent a vehicle when a builder supply/lumber yard will load/deliver them for you?

I got mine from Carter Lumber, $30 and it showed up in my driveway, no hassles.

$30 for delivery -$20 to rent a van = $10 in my pocket

How large of an order will you be getting?

Usually the places around here will deliver it for free if the order is a few hundred dollars. Combine the purchases and they may deliver the items for free. Just ask the place where you are thinking of buying from.

saving $10 (minus cost of gas) by driving to the store, signing out a vehicle, loading lots of insulation, securing it, driving home, unloading it, drive the vehicle back, top off the gas tank, sign the vehicle back in, drive your own car back home.... most people would say there time is worth more than that, but to each his own...
