Washington County. They may be steep but it's way cheaper than fuel oil which last I checked was at $4.39/gal when we filled up last month. I'm not sure what it is now since all the fuel oil dealers took down their price signs. They either ran out of high numbers or don't want to update it daily when it keeps changing. The dealers are in Saratoga County and Washington County.

My local guy just raised it from $225 to $255 loose per ton you pick up. Blamed it on delivery cost (diesel). Yeah, right, $30 per ton increase? I can get it delivered from the mine to my door for $40 per ton. Let the feeding frenzy begin, and winter isn't even here yet...

How many miles? Western NY is a big area. I was quoted $80/ton for 425 miles, just trying to get a gauge on trucking costs.

Yup, they were the ones saying $300/ton for bulk with a $2/loaded mile charge for delivery. There's a guy in Warrensburg that I've yet to call and ask though. Champlain said they offer discounts when so many ton are ordered but I didn't get into asking. I haven't received my stove yet so now I'm looking for a decent price on coal. There's a bulk place in Schuylerville but I don't have a truck to go pick it up myself. Putting 2-3 ton in a Toyota Corolla won't work, no matter how much trunk space the saleswoman said it had.

titleist1 wrote:$200/ ton with a $25 delivery fee. Had 5+ ton delivered last week. It should last about 3 years.



How do you like your MarkIII? I'm researching right now and trying to find out the pros/cons of the models available in my area. Any help appreciated. thanks

Last time I checked Advanced Energy Systems in Warrensburgh had Reading coal available, but I have no idea how their prices are. Lake Champlain Coal is doing pretty well at that price, I live two hours farther north and bagged coal up here is $275-295 per ton.

Yeah, I tried calling them today but no answer, perhaps some other time. I'll probably end up getting 2-ton from the Bagged Reading Guy @ $325 a ton since he's delivering my stove anyways. But $75 in the future is a little much for delivery. I'm not sure what Coal Champlain has though.

Only game in town is $260 bulk picked up and $295 delivered.

I wish I could buy straight from the breaker like some of you guys but that volume would fill my yard and at the rate I burn, my grand kids would be finishing it off.

While we're talking trucking, I thought I'd mention something that has come up in PM's the last week or two. If having coal trucked more than a few hundred miles please don't think because I live X miles away and paid X that you are beinng ripped off if you live closer and pay more, or feel like I'm having my chain yanked if I live closer and paid more. The simple fact is that depending on where you live, there may or may not be a return load for that trucker to pick up. If he has to haul empty from your place back to PA it's only fair business that you pay extra. If on the other hand there is a load of nuclear waste right next door to you that has to go get dumped down some mine, you may indeed get a better price. :lol: When they delivered to me they picked up apples for the return trip. A friend of mine dispatched trucks. He says things going into Vermont pay a high fee as there's not much that comes out of there. What do they do with all that maple syrup? ;)

Just got updated pricing from CSM in Munson Mass. $270 per ton Rice ( their own bags 50lbs each.) I burned a ton of CSM and ton of Blashak last year with no difference experinced in quality. Price is up $15 becuase of fuel increase to truck it. So it's going to cost me about $30/40 more for the season......big freaking deal. A guy at work is selling Green Cord wood for $180 and seasoned is going at $200-225. Wow, am I'm glad I switched over to Coal.

Just bought 2 pallets of bagged Kimmel's nut in Maine (L/A area) for $335.00/ton delivered. I've been looking around and a lot of places don't have any at all. Another local dealer of Blaschak says his next order may come in around October. Just wanted to have something at least to start.

This forum has such great info - thanks to everybody here for their contributions and knowledge.

Northen Maine price from Center Farms was $305 delivered bulk. I'm within 15-20 miles of their facility. $290 per ton bulk pickup.
