I'm having the coal shipped to our manufacturing business in CO. The guys there are loading and unloading trucks of all sizes and types all the time. We have a Toyota forklift rated at 4,500 pounds. We seem to get better service when using the business address and our shipping/receiving department is open from 6:00AM to midnight. Very friendly to truckers.
OK that no special packaging is needed. The seller said that the truck driver just needed to throw a strap over each pallet and he's good to go.
Thats a relief for ya Barbara. Dont know what the shipping ends up at but boy in a couple few years you could break even if you bought Scotscoaled rig he has for sale there. It sure looks fine and would give ya a chance to come this way.
I was in sadailia and castle rock this summer and it sure is nice. stay warm with your crawfords and enjoy the winter season
I know this is an older thread, but I found a guy who has been making regular shipments of coal from Blaschak Coal Corp in PA to Silverton, Colorado via rail. He said he could add a pallet of nut anthracite for me (2400 lbs of bagged coal, 60 bags at 40 lbs per bag). He has not given me a final quote but said it would be $9 per bag at the highest. That works out to $450 per ton, delivered PA to CO. Does that sound reasonable?
I need to burn anthracite in my baseburner instead of the N. Utah "hard bitumous" I've been using so far - it is too sooty and smoky.

Thanks but I don't need that much. The guy just gave me a firm quote for $7.75 per 40lb bag which works out to $387.50 per ton, for the anthracite coal + "free" shipping from PA. I think that would be hard to beat
