Hey Coalman, do you have access to a gravel train truck?? Maybe you can give us westerners a price on like 8-10 ton deliverd next spring?? Something to think about when you get back from Maui or key west in the spring.
look in the yellow book in your area for "coal brokers/ dealers". get a truck and go get it in bulk. or you can come to pa and get it. if at all possible stay away from bags it only increases the cost.
Bulk coal can be purchased in Solsville, NY near Oneida and Pompey, NY near Syracuse for market rates. Can't mention the names of the businesses here according to the rules but their prices are 190 picked up and the Solsville dealer will deliver for 234/ton.
I've had similar quotes for delivery to central Maryland. The problem I have is delivery is made in a 70 ft. long tractor trailer. That's what almost all the long haul independent truckers use that haul coal. The much shorter tri-axle dump trucks are not used because per axle weight restrictions on roads leading to some breakers makes it to costly. They can't fill the truck with a full load without exceeding the per axle weight restriction. It would also be tough for a 70 ft. rig to back into my driveway. BTY Norfok Southern Rail Road delivers 100 tons at a time. Check out their web site for an interesting video of rail cars being emptied into ships by rotating the car. Two at a time! http://www.nscorp.com/
