Yes, we supply both rock salt and grit salt in loose loads if required. Loose, tipped bulk loads are normally 29 tons.

Again, these are not sold by weight, but are approximately 900kg.
Can the salt be used in dishwashers, as water softener, or in baths?
No, the salt is only intended to be used for de-icing and we would not recommend using it for anything else.
Do you have a minimum order?
Yes, for our large packs it is 10 bags and for our 10kg bags it is 25.
What do the large packs weigh?
These are not sold by weight but are approximately 23-24kg.
Is the salt edible?
No, it is only intended for de-icing and must not be used in the food chain under any circumstances.
Is de-icing salt safe?
Both rock and white salt are unlikely to cause harmful effects under normal conditions of handling and use.
How do I use the salt?
Ideally you should use the salt to prevent the build up of snow and ice. If cold weather is forecast, spread the salt evenly over the area that you want to keep ice free. If necessary, the salt can also be applied directly on top of snow and ice to melt it.
How should I store the salt?
The salt should be stored undercover and out of direct sunlight. Kept in these conditions the salt will last many years.
What is the difference between rock and white salt?
The brown rock salt is mined from underground, whilst the white salt is taken directly from sea water. This means the brown salt will leave behind a muddy residue, but it is more economical to buy. The white salt, although more expensive, will help prevent any grit being walked into buildings.
