    Default Barrels and Totes

    Hi guys,

    Iím looking to source a few 55 gallon food grade plastic barrels and a larger ~300 gallon tote/tank.

    Where is the best place to source these either new or used.

    Thanks

    Bascoms has new food grade 55 gallon barrels for $55. Less if you get the 10% May discount. Definitely worth the money, I have gotten several used barrels from the Craigslist guy near Hartford and he was charging $30 for nice ones. Well worth the extra $25 for new ones that you don't have to clean or worry about what was in them before and if you can get the odor out.

    Whats the approx. freight charge to get the Bascom's barrels to CT?
    Could be a big determinant is the purchase....

    We recently learned about shipping through Fastenal. It works by going online and pricing out shipping through fastenal.com. You package up your item and drop off at your local store then they ship to branch you choose. We heard of people shipping race motors to large antiques. Haven't used yet so I'm not sure how competitive pricing is.
