Anyone get a delivery from Penn Keystone?
They are by far cheaper than any other sources I've found. They will deliver it here for about 160 a ton. Course it's the 22 ton deal.


So what say you all. Should I go for it or no?

I got a 22.5 ton load of bagged nut from them last year, it was excellent coal.

Who else have you called for quotes?

Well living here they all say "Oh, You live Way up there... Well that is really out there. You'll need to make a min. of a full truck." I say "OK no problem I'll also pay cash on the spot." Then there is a pause... It will be "235.00 A ton" I say "Is that the best you can do?" They say "Well yes, and we really don't go that far...." Then it's implied I should call someone else for a cheaper price.

So yeah, I called everyone that delivers coal from Scranton north.

This year I got a delivery from a local guy who hauls wood. The issue was I figured he would get me like 4.5 tons... But only 3.5 was delivered so the trucking cost per ton was much higher, He also didn't go to Hudson so the coal cost was also higher. It came to about 205 a ton delivered. Which is much better than the others but still more than it could be. I need it dumped on the ground outside and I live on a farm so the "special truck" isn't needed.

If you are willing to buy an entire truckload, you should call the breakers directly; they will arrange trucking. These two threads have a lot of information:

This year I got a truckload from LCN, I have been very pleased with their coal so far.

I get calls out after the first of the year then. I didn't think to call the breakers directly.

Thanks.
