Hi Woodshed,
I'm in the same boat you are.

I live in SW PA, five minutes north of downtown Pittsburgh. Coal prices here are outrageous!

My supplier wants $7.00 a bag for a 6 ton order! That comes out to $350.00 a ton and that's not delivered.

If anyone out has a good supplier in the south western/western part of PA, please speak up.

Jiminy... at that price it may be worth your while to rent a truck or trailer and make one day trip to a different dealer or if you can handle bulk coal, the breaker. What price per ton could you get if you rented a truck or trailer and drove one tank of gas to a different dealer? I'm pretty sure there is a Reading/Blasck dealer in Washington, PA. Would the cost savings per ton of coal offset the cost of rental, gas and your time? You don’t have to go all the way to the source because just like Richard (the mayor) tried to tell me :) there isn’t a price break for going to the breaker or closer to the mine for bagged coal. After spinning my wheels I ended up picking out the closest dealer to my home that had the bagged coal at the average price of $270 a ton and have arranged to pick up 2 ½ tons mid July. It’s not worth the trade off in time and effort to go closer to the source. Something to think about anyway. Lisa

$265 a ton for bagged anthracite in Washington, PA at Russel Brothers. No delivery on bagged. But they will deliver bulk at around $225/ton + delivery.

I have a backhaul trucking price of $500.00 for the shipping, a tractor tailor with a flat bed trailor 24 pallets to washington pa. Also a fork lift will have to be rented to unload the truck

I would be willing to split a shipment we would have to get current pricing on the coal. I have the dealer sign up paperwork for one of the major suppliers of bagged coal on my desk

Anybody interested?

Hi Woodshed,

I am just above the Pittsburgh airport and got nice looking pea coal this week at Kurtz Coal New Wilmington Pa. A little north of New Castle Pa. It was $193 a ton and $10 for loading and scale. They had nut at the same price but the quality was not as nice. More fine stuff and sticks etc. Blashack bagged was $305 a skid and $5 to load. They can deliver at a little higher price. Coal is picked up beside the New Wilmington Auction Barn at
James W Gilliland Hauling --- 28 Auction Rd --- New Wilmington, PA --- 16142
724-946-3145 Call and make sure somebody will be there. Not sure on the mine it came from.

I've also been using Russel Bros. in Washington, Pa. I just received the yearly price update from Heet Inc. http://www.heetinc.com. They say that the price for buckwheat is $223/ton and nut $228/ton bulk, $270/ton rice and $275/ton nut bagged. I've been using them for going on three years now. I have been satisfied with the quality of coal and the guys down there are really nice to deal with.

In Heet's letter, they state that there is a new supply outlet, Crystal Garden 1795 Broadhead Road, Coraopolis, Pa 724-457-7000. It states their prices are $230/ton buckwheat and $235/ton nut bulk. $275/ton rice and $280/ton nut bagged.

I haven't checked them out yet. It's a lot closer for me to go Coraopolis than to Washington from Pittsburgh. But, my boys love the trip and gives us some quality time together.

We get our bagged Anthracite Blasck Nut coal from Anthony's Feed Store near Spartansburg, Pa (about 40 miles south of Erie, Pa.) for $305 per ton. I pick it up, but they do deliver for a small fee. He is Amish & a graet guy!

I just did a search for "bagged coal" on Pittsburgh Craigslist and found this - http://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/mad/4170850880.html

I ended up buying 3 skids from the seller. Nice guy, easy going. Being located only 10 minutes from my home made my day!!! He only sells full skids though, no individual bags but for me, that was fine.

The seller is in Gibsonia, PA which is right next to North Park. I'm in Pittsburgh so I just took Route 8 North, made a left off of Rt 8 and it took only a few minutes. I made three trips (one for each skid.) He loaded each skid with a forklift and with each trip it took maybe 5 minutes to load. I'm so happy I don't have to drive so far to get my coal now.
