Do you plan on hauling it and shoveling it off the truck yourself ?

possibly may haul & shovel... I do have friends with dump trucks... which make life easier. Does Calvin's sell bulk if you haul your own?

Unless he changed, bulk is all they sell. You pull under the giant funnel that is equipped with load cells and wait for him to come out. Sometimes they are in the house sometimes in the breaker building. You tell him what you want and how much you want. He then uses one of two front end loaders that puts coal in the funnel. You can watch the display as he lets the coal go in. If you order a ton you will usually get 20 pounds or so over. He still just charges for the amount you wanted. Then he pulls a lever on the bottom of the funnel and you better be ready because it's going into the back of your truck or trailer FAST. :shock:

Good people to work with.
