Coal Purchase Decision

PostBy: NH Fire Dog On: Tue Mar 15, 2011 7:05 am

Hello Fellow Granite Staters,

I am having a new Coal Stoker stove installed soon, and was wondering where everyone is buying their coal? Are there any consortiums set up yet? I received an email from Mike Stower Coal in PA , "We can haul anything from 5 ton to 22 ton."
I really don't want 5 tons for myself but if we could band together it might make it worth while. I will report on price when he responds. What is everyone currently paying per bag? 40 LB,__________50 LB______________, TON__________________

How much are you looking for? 2,3,4,5 tons?.....and where are you looking for it to be delivered/picked up from. No Co-op, but many are thinking about it. :idea: :idea: It's a small state, but Pittsburg is a long way from Portsmouth. :idea:
There are many retail operations who are fairly priced right now; there is not much profit for the aggravation involved. If bagged is 300 at ton or less, that is very fair. Fuel prices will change that price very soon, also. :shock:

Sorry Fred, but I don't know what the "avatars for location" means. I'm fairly new here and still learning. Thanks.

the profit margin on anthracite is not good for the b/s you have to go tru so if you get it for 300 per tonne or less is decent if everyone gets it shipped direct or tru a co op then there is not much sense in some one carring coal as a side line bus this is in the NE area thanks jim
