Should You Buy Cheap Rock Salt?

Cheap rock salt is what most people look for when buying this unique and useful product. After all, who does not want to save money? Price is one of the largest factors for anyone when considering whether or not to buy something, or whether to buy it from one distributor or another. And, while price is important, it is not the only thing you should be considering when you are shopping for rock salt. Remember, most times, you get what you pay for, including with salt. You want to make sure you are getting a quality product.

However, just because you find cheap rock salt, it does not necessarily mean it is an inferior product to the more expensive salt suppliers. Maybe that supplier just found a good source of salt that they could sell cheaply to their clients. It does happen. That is why you have to look at so much more than just price when shopping for rock salt. There are a variety of factors to consider, which makes interviewing your potential supplier so crucial. You should ideally interview several suppliers, so you can be sure you are getting the one that will provide you with the best product and service.

Look around for cheap rock salt suppliers. Once you have found a few who you think might be able to give you what you need for your business or personal use, talk to their wholesale manager or company owner in-depth. If you cannot speak to anyone but a customer service representative, you probably do not want to use that company. A company with nothing to hide, and that really wants your business, will be happy to let you talk to the people in the company who are “in the know” about the product, because they will want you to feel comfortable using them as your supplier.

Ask about their salt, such as where they source it, who mines it, what its country of origin is, mining practices of the mining companies, and whether they put any additives into the salt. Ideally, you should be working with companies with pure products (or with minimal, useful additives) that are mined by workers who are treated well by companies with ethical human resources and job practices.

Also ask if you can talk to any of their current or former customers, to get opinions of people outside the company. If this is not possible, due to privacy concerns, then look up reviews of the company online and see what people are saying about them there. Investigate to see if there are any complaints about your potential supplier with the Better Business Bureau, and if those complaints have been amicably resolved. You want to make sure the company has good customer service practices, treats their clients well, and is reliable in their deliveries, as well as in the consistency of the quality of their product.
