I'll be heading up from Md to Superior this Monday to pickup at least 7 tons of nut coal- I've got my sideboards on. I called them Friday to confirm they have it & their hours ... --- Steve

As far as I know, blaschak is bagged only, no bulk. It would be alittle cheape rin Pa but not enough to justify the trip. If you are coming to Pa, you should buy bulk. About 160 per ton.

I've been burning Blaschak for years with good results & I think Terry is right about it only being sold bagged, but not sure.

Well, I believe I have waited too long to pull the trigger on a big coal order. :cry: I called most every mine in PA today and no one's selling to folks like me (new customer with big order to be delivered far away). If anyone knows otherwise, your help would be greatly appreciated.

Most of those places are not in the delivery business to begin with. The breaker where I used to get my coal for example would give the local orders to one guy but he didn't work for them... Getting 10 ton from any of these places would be hard to begin with. You need to find a dealer and not necessarily a breaker and even then under normal circumstances you'll have trouble finding anyone from this area to do it. You can't make any money on 1 1/2 day trip with 10 ton.

What a great forum! Hey I need your guys brains on this one. I figure I'll be using 3 tons of nut coal this winter and am building a bin for it. I live about 18 miles (30 minutes) north of Mt. Carmel where I am told I can get a ton of good coal for $130 at the UAE Harmony breaker (never been there, but my neighbor has). But all I have is a van, which I can either load with 1,200 pounds or tow up to 3,500 pounds. But I have no trailer to tow with. :( There are a couple of guys near me who will deliver coal for $186 per ton, but I don't know where they get their coal--I think it varies. The one guy also sells Reading Anthracite bags, so I'm thinking that Reading is his main coal supplier. What do you guys think? Should I get a trailer so I can tow a ton and a half, or am I wasting my money? Trailers aren't cheap. I don't know that I'd use it for much besides hauling coal. I was also racking my brain on how I could load 1,000 pounds of coal into my van without it making a a big mess in my van. :? Even if I put a tarp down I am afraid it will run off and all over. What do you think?

Scottsman,
Read backwards and see where these guys are renting U-Haul traliers, not buying a trailer.

Price wise, he has to try and compete with U-Haul.
I got away with collecting all the right pieces of treasure to build a Dump, we use it for Coal, Gravel, Sand, Grain and Firewood. So for me it was a no brainer but I understand what it is like to have a trailer sitting in your yard that is specailized to one task and useless for all others.

Thanks, guys. That's a good idea...renting a trailer. I might do better yet if I can find a neighbor with one and borrow/rent it cheap for a day.
