This year I've decided to bypass the middle man and purchase 20 tons of Rice coal, but in Andover, Ohio, (290 miles away from coal county), can't seem to get a deal on the trucking.One outfit will haul it for $41.00 a ton and I found a crusher for $158 a ton. Any one with any suggestions or information would be greatly appreciated.
Dealers please pm me.

$41.00 per ton hauling is a deal. Sign on the dotted line before he sobers up.

$41 a ton is a fair price for the distance and quanity at current diesel prices. You can check around but you probably won't do much better. The best price will be had from a full load truck with the shortest haul. The closest breaker may not have the cheapest price on coal.

I priced 4 or 5 places and they were all within +/- $5 ton delivered.

Your trucking quote is not unreasonable. You might do a little better if you call some local trucking companies in your area and find one that needs a backhaul from NEPA...but it can be tough to find loads for a dump trailer.

Have you tried these folks? They were recommended by forum member "coal berner".
