In order to get a good price I had to buy what I hope is a three year supply. But I don't believe coal or diesel is going to go down in price so I guess this is controling my future costs.. For a while anyway.
Bought all the trucker could haul from Pa to Michigan, he brought me 29.5 tons, I paid $120/ton for the coal and $46/ton delivery. So that is $166 delivered 575 miles to my backyard. He was about 12,000# over legal.
Of course he charges by the ton, so he mad extra by hauling extra.
It's in a temporary coal bin, while I rebuild and enlarge the perminant bin. I'll post photos over the weekend when I get home.
EDIT: this was a 'one-time-only' deal. It is the result of contacting friends. Pulling some strings, calling in favors etc. The best I could do today would be about $194/ton delivered to me in Michigan. Probably about 23-24tons max.
