I used to get very little warning for the price change at the breaker in the Fall, as in days and I could have weeks worth of work. When it used to get around that time of the year I'd give them a price and explain it may go up before I got there when they were ordering it. If it went up when I called to set up delivery I'd give them the new price.
Most understood after I explained and for those that gave me hard time I just charge them extra next year if they ordered around that time.
The guy delivering the coal is not making a lot of money and if there is $5 or $10 difference per ton in what they are paying for it that is significant.
