Coal Supply For 2014-15 heating season

PostBy: kstills On: Wed Jun 11, 2014 9:51 am

A bit early, I know, however I just spoke to Hendricks in Hilltown PA about availability and he says that they should be fine for this year. They're stocking the yard now, and don't expect and haven't heard of any supply issues going into the summer-fall season.

I'm having to use bags for DHW starting this week and going until our first dry spell in August (when I can get his truck across my yard without it sinking to the axles) , but the price is where it was last year (8 per 50lb) so there aren't any surprises on that front.

Here's hoping for a warmer winter than last year.

Are you serious? In PA, that's more than I'm paying in CT.

Just ordered my 6 tons for next season. I'm gonna try a mix of 3 ton nut size with 3 ton stove size this year. $235 a ton delivered unless the price went up since he was at the breaker last. It will be delivered in July after he goes to the breaker for this years supply.. :)

:lol: Yeah could be!

What they don't know is I spent every last dollar I had on that thing, except for the stash set aside for coal ... which now isn't nearly enough. :x

Friggin ripoff central around here this year!! More than likely due to increases in fuel costs and taxes on the dealers, truckers, & everyone else .... :mad:

I tried getting a co-op together this year for all the Massachusetts guys.

If I could have gotten 25 or more guys we could have had some buying power.

I got only 1 response.

We have no one to blame but ourselves.

I think the forum should start a co-op, we could certainly leverage costs that way.

The only shitty thing about a co-op is ... everyone has to have the money ready to go at the same time. My money supply goes up and down like a yo-yo, so it's hard for me to coordinate with other people - it's much easier for me to act on my own ..... but then there's the cost thing.

Ahh to be rich ... :(
