How many tons did your truck hold? I remember seeing pics of it. The guy that delivered mine last summer had a truck that only held 4 ton. The box on it was real short. It kind of looked weird. He had to make three trips to fill my bin.

Wasn't me, the small one is 5 ton. The large one is seven.

Old red beat up truck? That was my cousin. you could put that ruck with a half a load on into my large one and lift it. :lol: Actually with a whole load but you wouldn't be legal anymore.

Take a full load at 22-23 ton to get the best 'delivery' prices.
You have to have the space and equipment to do so.
$130-160/ton at the breaker, $30-70/ton trucking and some profit to the dealer or cost for your equipment.
So using the Cape as a destination Superior coal would be $215/ton for 23 tons bulk. Penn coal bagged was $285/ton delivered.
Bulk is $280/ton picked up in the yard delivery price depends on distance travled and amount delivered.
$65/ton covers all costs involved in running the yard; tractor, scales, labor, rent and insurance.
Not much of a markup nor profit to be had.

I pick mine up at a local dealer here for .14 a pound or $280 a ton. Delivery is another $40. I just get 12-1400 pounds a trip with my 1/2 ton truck. Good excercise unloading it.

Luckily I can borrow my father-in-laws 2500HD pickup, and rent the 12' dump trailer from a local place for $100.

i pick up 2 tons at a time for $160/ton and spend a few hours shoveling down my chute to the basement.

little bit of hard work is worth the savings to me

but to answer the thread starter, local mine has small surcharges due to season but nothing crazy.

been pretty steady from what I've seen
