I think all the coal mined in our area is bit. Warm Mornings have been the choice for burning coal in this area for a long time. Our house is around 14 years old, well insulated and has good windows. It's about 1,800 square feet.

There are a few threads on the board about them...

Got a quote back from Centralia Coal Sales Company for a load of nut coal from the Harmony mine. They quoted me $149 a ton and $37.50 a ton delivery fee for the 300 or so mile trip. Which brings it to $186.50 per ton delivered.

It costs me more then $37.50 in gas to drive from here to Harmony and back in my truck. How could that be? Is there a minimum delivery? If I bring back 2 ton, $75.00 would cover the gas.

37.50 is the rate for a 22 ton load, that is the shortest load you can get from them.

Riceburner78 and myself took my truck up to blaschack mine, which is about an hour and a half from Denver. He needed about a ton to get him through the upcomming season, and our coal guy has a two ton minimum. So we thought road trip and what better place to go than a coal mine :) . Anyway, picked up at the mine coal was $175 a ton no charge for oil. So for $34 a ton savings not adding in the fuel and time, I will let the coal man bring it, no shoveling he shoots it right in the basement.
Have a great day everyone, Eric

Just so there is not any confusion You where at a Coal Processing plant / Coal breaker Not a mine . Blaschak is a open pit surface mining Company . Not a underground mining Co. so they have no mines .

UAE sells Their coal for 150 a ton Picked up so Centralia coal sales is only saving you a buck a ton for buying bulk .

That is not the buck I am worried about!!

I am concerned about all the bucks it would take me to drive 600 miles round trip for the amount of coal I could carry back with me versus having it delivered!!

I am also considering the bucks saved versus the $255 and $290 a ton picked up options available to me locally!!

Not that I would not like to come up that way and see everything at some point, but right now having it delivered will save me a lot of time, money and effort!!!

Oh! And not to mention the warm fuzzy feeling that comes from having several winters worth of fuel prepaid, stored up and ready to go!!!

With the way the Muslim in charge is driving this country it might cost twice as much next year!!! :shock: And that one little buck would be the least of my worries then!!! :P

I guess I should of looked at your local first . With that said are you buying T.T. load 22 or 25 tons If so they should give you a better price per ton on that load of coal that's were the buck I was talking about comes in should be at least 5 to 10 less per ton on a 22 to 25 ton load .

SD is getting the load delivered thru a broker...
Centralia Coal Sales Company...
Not direct from UAE with his own trucker...
So the middle man is getting the $10/ton for his pocket...
Will UAE do a 22+ ton direct sale and hook SD up with a trucker...
The broker might be worth the $220 to avoid the hassle of coordinating the coal/trucker/payment issue...
Unless 22 tons will earn him a discount larger than $10/ton...

I called UAE and they did not have any trucks they used and when I asked about any they recommended they did not seem to have any info on that available either.

UAE seems to be selling mostly to established customers right now so maybe that is the reason they did not look too hard. I hope to have better contacts by the time I need more coal and if they send an small transport company or independent driver I may very well keep their info for next time.

I will report back when it is all said and done, but so far dealing with Centralia has been pretty easy. John Howley/Howlee (sp?) the sales guy is on the road a lot and only in the office on Thursdays so we played phone tag for a couple of days and I think that they had something big going on because I slid to the back of the desk for about 10 days, but unless something else jumps up I have been pleased to work with them so far and would have no reason to not use them again.
