I'm sure if you contact them they will find a place local to you that sells their coal.

I live in central Mass (Worcester area) Does anyone know of any other dealers around besides the stove place on rt 20 and Higgins energy in Barre? Need Anthracite coal. Also does anyone have anything to say (good or bad) about the SAEY stove?

Thanks

I'm in central NH, near Plymouth and hear about some company in Laconia bringing up bulk coal from PA and bagging here for sale....

Can anyone substantiate that story and fill in the details, especially a name and contact info.

Also, anyone know of coal suppliers other than West Lebanon Supply in West Lebanon, NH....that's where I've gotten my coal and it's a long haul for me!

Bulk Coal Delivery in Massachusetts

PostBy: heatwithcoal On: Mon Jan 26, 2009 7:31 pm

So as the heating season is now rolling strong I am starting to think of next year and bulk delivery possibilities for W. Mass. This year I paid $270.00/ton and bought 5 tons. I would love to get together with a few folks locally to maybe place an order (if that is the correct term) for next year. Not to compare coal to wood pellets but a friend of mine got together with a few friends and bought a tractor trailer load of pellets. Is there a possibility to get either bulk or bagged in large amounts in the area? I would be looking for 5-6 tons. This is not large by some standards out there but I see an opportunity to save more than a few hundred dollars.

I am in Belchertown, MA.This is close to the Springfield/Amherst area.

Sure, anything is possible, full trailer loads are 22.5 Tons, give or take. The trick is you have to dump in one shot, then
distribute from there. Now you need a loader and a dump truck. Bagged is way more money, but easier to move around, still
need a fork truck. Keep in mind where you dump loose coal, because mixing soil from
the ground is not fun. You may be better off just doing what you do now. Maybe shop around and save a few bucks buying
in summer. Good Luck!

I'm in central Mass. . . .but, I'm looking to do the same in the late spring/early summer. I'd be in for 10 tons of pea (preferably bagged) What size are you looking to get?

There are two ways to do this. One, loose bulk delivery by trailer that gets dumped in one place. It will be difficult to divide up a bulk load, keep that in mind. Or two, bagged and pallettized coal in box trailer. This will require a loading dock and fork lift to unload. The advantage is that it is easy to split up. The disadvantage is, its expensive in bags as opposed to the savings you get in bulk. Bulk loads in some cases can run close to 30 tons, the more you can get in one trip, the bigger your savings are.

Should have posted that I am looking for rice coal.
No chance of getting a coal truck to hit a few different locations and dumping only what is required at any particular spot? If this is way off, please excuse my naivety, just trying to learn and save a few bucks.

For a coal truck yes but if you're getting it really far away you need to take delivery from a tractor trailer or tri-axle. The cann do that but will never be able to determine who's getting what unless there is scale nearby and every time they go on the scale it's $$$... technically in Pennsylvania it would be illegal to do that. You need a weight slip for each stop with the weight marked exactly.

There will be no control over who gets what. And keep in mind, drop charges. Every drop assuming you can get some one
to do it, will incur an additional charge, every time. I sell coal, and can tell you first hand, the mark up is MINOR, so, how
much you going to save? You may get a little better deal loading up in the summer from a local supplier. Lot less grief too.
Good Luck!

If anyone has room for a load that size (22+ton) anywhere in NJ, I'd be willing to go in on some. Then throughout the summer I would show up with some bags and a scale and take my cut.
