Get or rent yourself a tandem axle grain tight trailer and head on over to the "region". Think of it as a vacation that pays its own way. OR hire up a tri-axle to do it for you. If you have to pay $400/ton there and could buy at the breaker for $170/ton ,that's $130/ton to defray hauling charges. X 20 or so tons ,that is $2.6k.


Oh, I think it is worse or better, depends...

Shouldn't that be...... If you have to pay $400/ton there and could buy at the breaker for $170/ton ,that's $230/ton to defray costs hauling charges. X 20 or so tons ,that is $4.6K to spend on hauling/moving a big T/L.

Although it's not fair to compare pricing on bagged to bulk. ;)

I would definitely need bagged here (im just not set up for bulk coal and have no intentions of getting set up for it here). Got a quote from Boston Coal for Blaschak at $320 per ton bagged ($35.00 delivery), but so far coalvet found a place right near my mothers for $290/ton bagged & delivered i think :shock: Im hoping they sell it right their for $5.00 or less per bag and i see Santa Clause on the bags :lol: .(ill be doing cartwheels down the street!)

I think you are really limiting your options by only looking for Blaschak coal. It is a good product, but if you find a different product closer to home or priced considerably better, give it a shot.
