Does anyone have a favorite Blaschak dealer near the breaker in Mahanoy City, PA or surrounding area?
Lisa you'll find the bag prices here are not much lower than what they are outside of the area. I'd suggest finding a dealer closer to your location and price it there first before making a long trip this way.[/quote]
Thanks for responding. I appreciate the advice, when you're driving that far you definitely want to check things out before you leave.
I hear what you are saying about the price being "not much lower than what they are outside the area" but I have a personal problem with that. I may just have to accept it but it burns my biscuits. Since I've been burning coal I've been told that the reason a bag of coal is so expensive in Northern VA is because of the transportation costs. In my mind, reduce the shipping costs and you should be able to get a better price on the actual coal and when that's compounded over 2 tons you should save some money. Since I have access to a dump trailer at no cost and live within a tankful of gas to NE PA it would seem I should come out ahead.
After I've gathered all my information it may not work out that way and if not I will just have to suck it up and deal with the higher cost but I still won't like it. That's just how I feel. Thanks again,
