Hauling Bagged Coal

I really don't like my local suppplier. I would like to get 3-5 tons on my own. What is the best was to transport bagged rice coal from PA to Southern NY when you don't own a truck?

Rent a small u-haul. If you have an suv you can rent a trailer.

I'm not sure what their weight limit is. I was thinking, hell they can carry a car, but that's only around 1 ton. The 17 foot truck should more than handle it. We just moved my daughter with one. It's got dual rear wheels.

I would love to cut my dealer out of the picture. He is gouging us and charging stacking fees, etc. I may do this just not to line his pockets. I'd probably save about 140.00 a ton so even if I got 4 tons it would be worth the trip.

Penske rents heavy duty trucks, 26,900 is what the door says so they can rent to people without a CDL but they have huge axles on them and heavy duty tires that can hold 20,000 pounds easy. Bagged coal costs the same in PA as it does anywhere else though, doesn't it?

Send matthaus a PM. I believe he can hook you up with reasonably priced bagged rice in the Scranton/Carbondale area. I believe I've heard folks here on the forum finding bagged rice for ~$190/ton in Scranton. While at the same time, most dealers I've checked are getting ~$250/ton for bagged Blaschak when buying a 2400 lb pallet. Kinda expensive; because, I can get bagged Blaschak for the same price all the way up here in New Hampshire. :?:

The only way to really save money is to have J.C. take you to a breaker and get some of the good stuff in bulk. I believe deep mined NEPA black gold is going for ~$140 a ton. Send J.C. (coal berner) a PM. He'll hook you up. Go rent yourself a truck and load that puppy up! :D

That is so cool that you have a vein in your backyard. I would definetely be interested in picking coal for some fun. Do u ever find fossils? I'm actually set right now but I'll need a refill this summer. I'll get in touch with you then and I'll bring the pick too. It's a shame the dumbasses in our capital are so political because they could be promoting anthracite and creating a boom for the NE. Instead we gove all our dollars to people who hate us. Go figure. Thanks again.

Whenever you are ready by the way we really would not have to pick in summer when we get heavy rains it pop up

is this a open invitation to take us to get cheap coal bulk. i live in silver creek ny its about 50 miles south of buffalo. i have a friend that is going to start burning coal and i have a cdl so i could haul 8-9 tons if rented a truck. the rental would be 126$ plus fuel this would be a 5-6 hundred dollar savings thanx
