    I overheard a pellet burning veteran say that there is a difference between purchasing a pallet vs a ton of pellets . The difference being that there are 12 more bags on a pallet.
    Since I`ve only ever seen a 50 bag pallet covered and shrink wrapped , I`ve got to think somehow he is misinformed.
    Or was this possible in the earlier years of pellet sales?

    Some companies pack more than a ton of pellets on to a pallet.

    One place I looked quote prices based on a skid (pallet) rather than by the ton. The skid was 1.5 tons, IIRC.

    The other posters are correct. In addition, I've seen some offered
    packed in 20lbs bags and also packed more than a ton on a pallet.

    That said, the norm that you will find at most places is one ton
    on a pallet = Fifty 40lb bags.
