I don't know who might be delivering small/partial loads to western MA these days, but I'm getting a truckload delivery next week and expect to have about that much left over. I'm in Dalton.

Jim -

I haven't decided yet on either the mine or the trucking. When I started to firm things up after that last post, I realized that most of the mines seem to be holding their summer pricing at least through August. That let coal delivery slide down the to-do list for a while, but I do hope to firm something up by the end of next week.

Hello Mike, I was just checking to see if you ever found a supplier for your coal delivery. I am currently seaking out a supplier of rice coal for a customer I have. He is interested in me delivering him Anthracite in bulk via dumptrailer to store, resell and deliver in the Berkshire County area. If you have found a mine or supplier could you please let me know. Thanks, Todd

Hey guys,
I know this thread was started awhile ago ,but I am interested in the same thing. If you guys could let me know the places you found that would be much appreciated. I live about 45 min from Dalton in chicopee and am looking into the bulk delivery options seeing as I'm paying 300 a ton bagged. Just wondering if I could save alittle more money just had a baby. Thanks

Tom, are you looking to get a few tons or an entire tractor trailer load? You will get MUCH better pricing with a full truckload.

How much is a full truck load? for right now I'm probably going to get just a couple tons because I still have almost a ton and that should get me through the winter, but I'm thinking next year I might want get a bulk delivery. I just don't know any places that do it. If it is cheaper I will definitely take the truckload. Right now my only options are 300 a ton for bagged nut 30 dollar delivery charge or another place charges 746 for 2.4 tons delivered so I'm thinking if I can get it for 100 dollars cheaper a ton i can get more bang for my buck.

$4500-5000 is the ballpark range for a TT load (avg. 23 tons) to your area. The final cost will depend on your choice of coal suppliers, and the trucking cost. You could probably achieve your goal of saving almost $100 per ton by getting a full truckload...but you to make sure that a 70' rig can get on your property, dump on a level surface, and not hit any overhead wires.

Remember not all T.T. are not dump bodies depending on trucking companies some may have walking floor trailer no need to worry about over head wires .
This company is one with such trailers .

I used Hostetler Trucking, at the advice of "Coal Berner", for my bulk delivery. 24 ton. They used a trailer with a huge conveyor belt to empty it out. Cost me $38 per ton to have it delivered 400 miles from the breaker. Not bad, I saved a ton of money. If you call them, ask for Cathy.
Heres a video I took of my bulk delivery....
What does a full T/L of bulk anthracite look like?
