This is the time of the year we need to start planning for our upcoming projects. Foster Supply has a fleet of delivery vehicles but cannot always meet the demands of all customers when spring breaks. This year will be even worse than usual due to the harsh winter. Many jobs have been delayed and once the weather breaks everyone will need materials at the same time.
Our customers will need to plan ahead as much as possible to prevent any potential delays in receiving materials. This is especially important on projects where there are significant numbers of trucks required to service the site. Retaining wall projects and projects with large quantities of manholes and catch basins are usually affected the most by trucking issues.
All customers should be aware that there may be times when Foster Supply cannot deliver all materials on our fleet. We are happy to contract outside haulers should they be necessary however, the rates may be higher. When outside haulers are authorized by our customers, the customer will be billed the difference from what is on our quote using our trucks versus the outside hauler rates.
We are looking forward to spring and the opportunity to serve all of our customer’s needs in the timeliest manner possible.
