maybe I should get a multi-ton truck and head to PA!
I looked into that, my truck can haul 3 tons. I called a dealer's supplier who has the best coal I've seen. 10 bags is the limit just like the dealer. What the ????. I could buy loose up to 6 ton at $150per. that means to save $150, I'd spend $120 on diesel and spend 8 hours on the road to save $30. I'm not doing that. I'll keep checking, PM me if you see a deal.
I don't understand this dealer, most of his coal goes to the pizza joints in New Haven. So he limits his private customer purchases to 10 bags. He never knows when he will get more, and swears he can't pick up the phone and just order more. He wouldn't even order me a 5 ton purchase. Coalman, does this make sense? Is there a shortage or no trucks available, I just can't understand it.
