I could use 10 ton of Anthracite delivered to my house in western NY, zip code 14715. If I can get a couple people locally that need anthracite I'll have my buddy pick up a 26 ton load. If I get a full truckload my cost is $180/ton delivered to my driveway. Gotta love diesel prices :shock:

There is a company west of me nearly 40 miles that has loose coal for $205.00 for pick up only. Bagged comes out to about $309. Any chance anyone near Oak Ridge, NJ has access to delivery closer that I could pick up?

I am at the point of purchasing my Hitzer Stove, but cannot justify the purchase without a consistent supplier for future heating seasons. Too bad our host cannot make the trip into New Jersey, as I am sure even with the added fuel to deliver, would be cheaper than anyone else.

Look forward to a few leads...or names of suppliers in the Port Jervis area.

Thanks!

Well, since I wrote inquiring about a supplier, I have located 2-3. Having in fact called our host, NJ is significantly further east than anyone in Eastern PA. delivers to.

So then, tell me if these prices are in order with those of you who can get a constant supply delivered.

In NJ, I can go and pick up at one location, about 50 miles away, loose coal for $205.00 a ton, or $6.19 for a 40lb. bag. In another location, around 35 miles away, I can pick up for $180.00/ ton or $12.00 for a 75.00 bag. They will also deliver the loose coal for $260.00 a ton.

From another supplier much further south in Jersey, I was told that the coal supplied by the second dealer above is not very good. In the case of this dealer, he will sell a ton of coal for $235.00 + delivery, though I am really too far north for him. On the other hand, he has a property north of me about 25 miles, where he said he could bring 50lb bags for $7.75 per bag.

If I was willing to drive with someone's truck to Scranton area, I could probably get a ton for around $130.00. Only, I don't have any friends with trucks that can handle any more. To drive all the way out there for a ton is not cost effective.

So, is there anyone in North Jersey getting a large quantity of coal that wouldn't mind adding another couple or so tons? Are the prices above reasonable?

If the coal is questionable, and driving to Scranton is out of the question, I may have to continue burning wood.

Thanks for any advice you can share.

With that particular dealer,

couldn't you make a trailer with some sides on it and figure how big it has to be to for the amount you need for the winter and make the trip worth it. then every year you would have the trailer to use. maybe rent a u-haul trailer that is enclosed. I don't know the weight they can carry. might be something to look into.

you could not use a enclosed trailer there would be no way to load it must be a open top so the coal chute at the coal breaker or front end loader could fill it

Well, seems my little car has transmission trouble, and won't be hauling any coal soon...thinking maybe I should pick up a beater 1 ton pick up for making runs to Pa when I need coal.

However, thanks to another member in the area, I have been given a couple of leads for affordable delivered coal, though I still have to find if I within the delivery circle of the supplier....and also have been given a few good prices from an Agway about 35 miles west where I could pick up bagged coal during the season.

My biggest decision now is to decide if I want to burn coal only in my basement, or coal in the basement and wood in the living room. The cost of two stoves together approaching $3,000 doesn't make much sense. Not if the reason for burning is to save money.

Anyway, though the supply is limited in NJ, there are dealers just over the border into Pa that I can pick up bagged coal, and even save a dollar a bag if I purchase a ton of bags at one time.

Thanks for your continued advice.

I have been buying good quality anthracite in 50 lb. bags from AGEL Coal on West Locust Ave. in Scranton, PA for three years now. Their price is $4.75/50lb bag, no minimum. They also load loose coal from a drive thru house, and have pea, nut and rice loose or bagged.

These guys are basically big rig truckers, and will deliver anywhere, in any amount, if the price is right. I suggest you give them a call.

Where to get quality coal in Plymouth, Mass. ?

Looking for good quality coal at a good price
Believe it or not, I have had good luck with bagged coal from Aubuchan Hardware for a few years but now want it delivered. Am also toying with the idea of building a bin & buying in bulk. Any thoughts?

Just called Eastern Ice and Coal. They do not carry rice. Smallest is pea. Just wonder if my Harman mag stoker would run pea or not?
