I am looking for a truck loan (22 tons ) of bagged rice coal to Willsboro, NY to use in our new Keystoker Kaa2 this winter. I am an hour south of Montreal and across Lake Champlain from Vermont. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

If you live outside of the NEPA area, shipping is a problem now and it's only going to get worse. All the old time coal yards have been converted into other uses. Most of them received their deliveries by rail, particularly if they were several hundred miles from the coal mines

The cost of shipping can equal the cost of coal. The only way to significantly reduce that cost is to rebuild those coal yards and their sidings.

Until then a buyer has to be creative if he is able to receive a truckload. Why pay the dealer markup if you can handle a truckload?

I would start by looking at what industries in your area ship product through NEPA on a flatbed trailer. Some to look at are milled lumber, steel fabricators, tank manufacturers, masonry (brick, cut stone, modular concrete items) mfgs, and anyone that ships heavy bagged materials like landscaping materials. I am sure there are other products as well. Call the guy who runs the shipping dept.

Also look at what products Canada ships to us. Isn't there alot of Canadian hay that crosses the boarder?

Most of these trucks would welcome a backhaul and the rates are highly negotiable. Get yourself a forklift off Craigslist for $1,000-$2,000. When you need to get rid of it, it will probably scrap out for the lower amount.

There are 4 good Breakers that I would recommend to goto all are off of I-81 the first one would be Superior coal the second would be UAE Harmony mine the third one would be Calvin V Lenig the fourth one would be Summit coal
Look at the links below For address and Phone Numbers The first one Superior coal you would take the 112Exit Route 25 to Hegins or the 107Exit Route 209 Good Springs on I-81 the second one you would take Exit 124 Frackville Route 61 to Ashland then to Centarlia & Mount Carmel Highway On Route 61 The third one Calvin V Lenig you woul take 116 Exit
Route 901 to Route 225 Shamokin it is a long way from I-81 You could also take Exit 124 go the same Route as UAE but you would go threw Mount carmel on Route 61 to Route 225 Much easier The fourth one Summit Anthracite would be Exit 107 Route 209 to Good Spring the are off of Main st in Good Spring or when your Ready Depending on what day I could meet you at any of the Exit And Take you to them PM me and Let me know here are the links below ;)

Homeowner Wants Bulk Load

PostBy: equipmint On: Thu May 08, 2008 8:18 am

Hey guys I live in thre Port Jervis NY area, I would like to get a price on getting a bulk delivery for Rice coal from a quality source. I have a trucker with a triaxle dump truck that will give me a quote on the trucking end his body holds approx 22 tons when loaded with stone. Ive read about a couple breakers you have referred to like Superior and a few others. My question is What breaker with a quality source of Rice coal would be best for me to try to get a price from that would deal with a homeowner arranging his own trucking? Also if anybody from the forum uses a reliable trucker that would come out my way i would like to talk to them also.
Thanks Curt

Curt, all you have to do is make a few phone calls,, If you call Superior, give them the name of the trucker, the time of the coal pickup, they will know that the truck is coming. You could pre-pay by sending Superior money, or you could give your friend the money to pay for the coal.

Any breaker will take your money,, but I don't know of any that take credit cards.. just cash, or some will take a check,
