I live between rochester and syracuse ny. I'd like to buy a semi load of bagged coal. Anyone know who i can contact and what price i can expect to pay. We burn rice coal. I got a price from penn coal for
I have bought three loads from them...good price, good product. I doubt you will find a better price on bagged coal, but you can try contacting your local trucking companies to see if they can do better on the trucking.
Hi, I buy my coal at Earth and Fire Supply in Tamaqua, they have about the best price I can find,and an amazing product! Not sure what there delivery fees and stuff are for New York, try calling them 570-668-3802

Thanks, I'm about an hour south of there and the local place delivers at $280 a ton bagged and oiled. Not sure buying that big of a load would be worthwhile for me since I only burn about 4 ton a year on average.
I understand, however if a bunch of friends get together you could make a load work. The delivered and oiled price seems extremely fair, so you may be in the right place for your needs right now. The margins are small, and the aggravation immense for the short dollar that coal affords a dealer. We are at 325 to 405/ton in my area, so fell VERY lucky!
Assuming the coal burns decent, $280 per ton for bagged coal is very fair...especially if that is the delivered price. Do you want to put up almost 6k to save $60 per year? If you have to rent a forklift or skidsteer to handle the pallets the math gets even worse...my vote is to support your local guys and stay warm.
